# A Smolin-like branching multiverse from multiscalar-tensor theory

@article{Croker2016ASB, title={A Smolin-like branching multiverse from multiscalar-tensor theory}, author={Kevin S. Croker}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2016} }

We implement a Smolin-like branching multiverse through a directed, acyclic graph of $N$ metrics. Our gravitational and matter actions are indistinguishable from $N$ decoupled statements of General Relativity, if one varies with respect to metric degrees of freedom. We replace $N-1$ metrics with scalar fields by conformally relating each metric to its unique graph predecessor. Varying with respect to the $N-1$ scalar fields gives a multiscalar-tensor model which naturally features dark matter…
