We study scenarios of parallel cyclic multiverses which allow for a different evolution of the physical constants, while having the same geometry. These universes are classically disconnected, but quantum-mechanically entangled. Applying the thermodynamics of entanglement, we calculate the temperature and the entropy of entanglement. It emerges that the entropy of entanglement is large at big bang and big crunch singularities of the parallel universes as well as at the maxima of the expansion… 
Entanglement entropy at critical points of classical evolution in oscillatory and exotic singularity multiverse models
Using the 3rd quantization formalism we study the quantum entanglement of universes created in pairs within the framework of standard homogeneous and isotropic cosmology. In particular, we
Cosmological perturbations in the entangled inflationary universe
In this paper it is presented the model of a multiverse made up of universes which are created in entangled pairs that conserve the total momentum conjugated to the scale factor. For the background
Decaying universes and the emergence of Bell-type interuniversal entanglement in varying fundamental constants cosmological model
In this paper, we consider a high-curvature limit of the varying fundamental constants toy model in which both the value of the speed of light and the value of the gravitational constant are related
Doubleverse entanglement in third quantized non-minimally coupled varying constants cosmologies
In this paper we consider a third quantized cosmological model with varying speed of light $c$ and varying gravitational constant $G$ both represented by non-minimally coupled scalar fields. The
Emergence of multiverse in third quantized varying constants cosmologies
Although the standard cosmological model explains most of the observed phenomena it still struggles with the problem of initial singularity. An interesting scenario in which the problem of the
New guest in the third quantized multiverse
In the present article we point out a conceptual issue of the Third Quantization formalism for Canonical Quantum Gravity. Based on earlier results on interuniversal entanglement, the picture of
Anthropic Selection of Physical Constants, Quantum Entanglement, and the Multiverse Falsifiability
This paper evaluates some important aspects of the multiverse concept. Firstly, the most realistic opportunity for it which is the spacetime variability of the physical constants and may deliver
Time Reversal Symmetry in Cosmology and the Creation of a Universe–Antiuniverse Pair
The classical evolution of the universe can be seen as a parametrised worldline of the minisuperspace, with the time variable t being the parameter that parametrises the worldline. The time reversal
What if? Exploring the multiverse through Euclidean wormholes
TLDR
This study presents Euclidean wormhole solutions describing possible bridges within the multiverse and draws some conclusions about which universes are more likely to tunnel and therefore undergo a standard inflationary era.

Quantum entanglement in the multiverse
We show that the quantum state of a multiverse made up of classically disconnected regions of the space-time, whose dynamical evolution is dominated by a homogeneous and isotropic fluid, is given by
Entanglement theory and the second law of thermodynamics
Entanglement is central both to the foundations of quantum theory and, as a novel resource, to quantum information science. The theory of entanglement establishes basic laws that govern its
Creation of Entangled Universes Avoids the Big Bang Singularity
The creation of universes in entangled pairs may avoid the initial singularity and it would have observable consequences in a large macroscopic universe like ours, at least in principle. In this
Cyclic multiverses
Using the idea of regularisation of singularities due to the variability of the fundamental constants in cosmology we study the cyclic universe models. We find two models of oscillating and
Entanglement and the thermodynamic arrow of time.
TLDR
It is proved that the occurrence of a transformation between two thermodynamic states constitutes a new type of entanglement witness, one not defined as a separating plane in state space between separable and entangled states, but as a physical process dependent on the local initial properties of the states.

TLDR
The crucial role of ambient correlations in determining thermodynamic behavior is established and the expectation that the second law is an emergent phenomenon which requires a low-entropy cosmological environment, one that can effectively function as an ideal information sink is supported.

TLDR
The mathematical basis for the Gaussian entanglement is discussed in detail, as well as its implications in the internal space-time structure of relativistic extended particles and the shear transformation is an interesting future possibility.

Regaining quantum incoherence for matter fields.
TLDR
It is concluded that quantum coherence in the matter-field sector is lost as a consequence of the interaction with nonsimply connected wormholes, and it is advanced that wormholes may provide us with a complementary quantum state sector that would induce the collapse of the state vector in the quantum measurement of any observable for ordinary microscopic matter systems.
