Bringing Terminal Vacua Back to Life With Classical Transitions
Speaker(s): Matthew Johnson
Abstract: In this talk, I will describe how the collision of Minkowski or crunching bubbles can re-start inflation in a portion of the bubble interior. Consistent with various singularity theorems, such collisions can only seed a lasting inflationary phase with energy density lower than that of the parent vacuum.
