Hawking Radiation and Analogue Experiments: A Bayesian Analysis

- Radin Dardashti, S. Hartmann, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault, Eric Winsberg
- Mathematics, Physics
- 28 December 2015

We present a Bayesian analysis of the epistemology of analogue experiments with particular reference to Hawking radiation. First, we prove that such experiments can be confirmatory in Bayesian terms… Expand

Ψ-epistemic quantum cosmology?

- P. Evans, S. Gryb, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault
- Physics
- 23 June 2016

This paper provides a prospectus for a new way of thinking about the wavefunction of the universe: a Ψ-epistemic quantum cosmology. We present a proposal that, if successfully implemented, would… Expand

Bouncing Unitary Cosmology II. Mini-Superspace Phenomenology

- S. Gryb, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault
- Physics
- 17 January 2018

A companion paper provides a proposal for cosmic singularity resolution based upon general features of a bouncing unitary cosmological model in the mini-superspace approximation. This paper analyses… Expand

Bouncing Unitary Cosmology I: Mini-Superspace General Solution

- S. Gryb, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault
- Physics
- 17 January 2018

We offer a new proposal for cosmic singularity resolution based upon a quantum cosmology with a unitary bounce. This proposal is illustrated via a novel quantization of a mini-superspace model in… Expand

On the Universality of Hawking Radiation

- S. Gryb, Patricia Palacios, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault
- Physics
- 17 December 2018

A physically consistent semi-classical treatment of black holes requires universality arguments to deal with the `trans-Planckian' problem where quantum spacetime effects appear to be amplified such… Expand

What can bouncing oil droplets tell us about quantum mechanics?

- P. Evans, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault
- Physics
- 28 October 2019

A recent series of experiments have demonstrated that a classical fluid mechanical system, constituted by an oil droplet bouncing on a vibrating fluid surface, can be induced to display a number of… Expand

Superpositions of the cosmological constant allow for singularity resolution and unitary evolution in quantum cosmology

- S. Gryb, Karim P. Y. Th'ebault
- Physics
- 17 January 2018

Abstract A novel approach to quantization is shown to allow for superpositions of the cosmological constant in isotropic and homogeneous mini-superspace models. Generic solutions featuring such… Expand
