The birth and death of a universe

  title={The birth and death of a universe},
  author={H. Fried and Y. Gabellini},
  journal={The European Physical Journal C},
This letter is meant to be a brief survey of several recent publications providing a simple, sequential explanation of dark energy, inflation, and dark matter. These paragraphs lead to an intuitive and qualitative picture of the why and the how of the Big Bang, and thence to a possible understanding of the birth and death of a universe.

Algebraic questions about a FTL physics.
The recent proposal of a negative mass fluid to explain both the dark matter and energy has renovated the interest for cosmological solutions based upon non-ordinary masses.
Determining a Quantum Theory of the Infinite-Component Majorana Field
In this paper, the quantum theory of the infinite-component Majorana field for the fermionic tower is formulated. This study proves that the energy states with increasing spin are simply compositeExpand
The duality in the affine actions on trees.
Every action on a tree given by a (finite) automaton has an associated dual action given by the dual automaton. In this talk I will consider the affine groups of subrings of a global function field,Expand


QED vacuum loops and inflation
A QED-based model of a new version of vacuum energy has recently been suggested, which leads to a simple, finite, one parameter representation of dark energy. An elementary, obvious, but perhapsExpand
Cosmological Inflation and Large-Scale Structure
This textbook is the first to provide a modern and unified overview of inflationary cosmology and carefully compares predictions with the latest observations, including those of the cosmic microwave background, the clustering and velocities of galaxies and the epoch of structure formation. Expand
Quantum tachyon dynamics
It is suggested that charged tachyons of extremely large mass M could not only contribute to the dark matter needed to fit astrophysical observations, but could also provide an explanation for gammaExpand
QED vacuum loops and vacuum energy
A QED-based “bootstrap” mechanism is suggested as a possible source of vacuum energy. In place of the conventional assumption that the vacuum expectation value of the current operator jμ vanishes inExpand
