  • S. Weinberg pointed out a way to introduce a cosmological term by modifying the theory of gravity. This modification would be justified if the Einstein equations with the cosmological term could be obtained in the classical limit of some physically satisfied quantum theory of gravity. We propose to consider quantum geometrodynamics in extended phase space as a candidate for such a theory. Quantum geometrodynamics in extended phase space aims at giving a selfconsistent description of the… CONTINUE READING
