Название: The Chern-Simons invariant as the natural time variable for classical and quantum cosmology

Авторы: Smolin L., Soo C.

Аннотация:

We propose that the Chem-Simons invariant of the Ashtekar-Sen connection is the natural internal time coordinate for classical and quantum cosmology. The reasons for this are a number of interesting properties of this functional, which we describe here. (1) It is a function on the gauge and diffeomorphism invariant configuration space, whose gradient is orthogonal to the two physical degrees of freedom, in the metric defined by the Ashtekar formulation of general relativity. (2) The imaginary part of the Chem-Simons form reduces in the limit of small cosmological constant, Lambda, and solutions close to DeSitter spacetime, to the York extrinsic time coordinate. (3) Small matter-field excitations of the Chem-Simons state satisfy, by virtue of the quantum constraints, a functional Schrodinger equation in which the matter fields evolve on a DeSitter background in the Chern-Simons time. We then propose this is the natural vacuum state of the theory for Lambda not equal 0. (4) This time coordinate is periodic on the configuration space of Euclideanized spacetimes, due to the large gauge transformations, which means that physical expectation values for all states in non-perturbative quantum gravity will satisfy the KMS condition, and may then be interpreted as thermal states. (5) Forms for the physical Hamiltonians and inner product which support the proposal are suggested, and a new action principle for general relativity, as a geodesic principle on the connection superspace, is found.
