  • We examine the possibility of dealing with gravitational singularities on a quantum level through the use of coherent state or wavelet quantization in- stead of canonical quantization. We consider the Robertson-Walker metric coupled to a perfect uid. It is the simplest model of a gravitational collapse and the results obtained here may serve as a useful starting point for more complex investigations in future. We follow a quantization procedure based on ane coherent states or wavelets built… CONTINUE READING
