    • Abstract


      The evolution of Gaussian quantum states in the de Sitter phase of the early universe is investigated. The potential is approximated by that of an inverted oscillator. We study the origin and magnitude of the density perturbations with special emphasis on the nature of the semiclassical limits

      Posted on January 27, 2016

      Since January 2016, the Journal of Astrophysics and Astronomy has moved to Continuous Article Publishing (CAP) mode. This means that each accepted article is being published immediately online with DOI and article citation ID with starting page number 1. Articles are also visible in Web of Science immediately. All these have helped shorten the publication time and have improved the visibility of the articles.
