We propose to interpret the dark universe (dark matter and dark energy) of the current cosmological standard model as emerging together with ordinary matter, from the quantum vacuum, which de Broglie called the "universal substratum". It will be shown that this interpretation may lead to a reasonable agreement between the current understanding of the quantum vacuum in quantum field theory and current evidences for the existence of dark energy and dark matter, and that dark matter can be…

Path Taken by the Particle Between Singularity and Final Matter

Based on the functioning of the mechanism of the anharmonic oscillator, the particle would oscillate between singularity and final matter. The path of the particle which therefore travels between

Bit from Qubit. A Hypothesis on Wave-Particle Dualism and Fundamental Interactions

A completely objective decoherence mechanism is hypothesized, operating at the level of the elementary particles of matter, and the classical instantons connected to these solutions represent de Sitter micro-spaces identifiable with elementary particles.

Quantum Models à la Gabor for the Space-Time Metric

As an extension of Gabor signal processing, the covariant Weyl-Heisenberg integral quantization is implemented to transform functions on the eight-dimensional phase space x,k into Hilbertian

Axions as dark matter particles

We overview the current status of axions as dark matter. The axion is the pseudo-Nambu–Goldstone boson which arises from the Peccei–Quinn solution to the strong CP problem. Additionally, cold axion

Dark Energy and its Implications for Gravity

The cosmological constant is the most economical candidate for dark energy. No other approach really alleviates the difficulties faced by the cosmological constant because, in all other attempts to

Dark Side of the Universe

The dynamics on scales from dwarf galaxies to the entire universe is dominated by gravitating mass and energy that can not be accounted for by ordinary matter. We review the astrophysical and

The basics of the theory of unimodular bimode gravity built on the principles of unimodular gauge invariance/relativity and general covariance are exposed. Besides the massless tensor graviton of

Cosmic Structure as the Quantum Interference of a Coherent Dark Wave

A cosmological model treating dark matter as a coherent quantum wave agrees well with conventional dark-matter theory on an astronomical scale. But on smaller scales, the quantum nature of wave-like
