  • We suggest a path-integral formulation for the tunneling cosmological state, which admits a consistent renormalization and renormalization group improvement in particle physics applications of quantum cosmology. We apply this formulation to the inflationary cosmology driven by the standard model Higgs boson playing the role of an inflaton with a strong nonminimal coupling to gravity. In this way a complete cosmological scenario is obtained, which embraces the formation of initial conditions for… CONTINUE READING
