Cosmological Constant, Quantum Cosmology and Anthropic Principle

Chapter
Part of the Ettore Majorana International Science Series book series (EMISS, volume 56)

Abstract

We discuss various features of quantum cosmology in relation to the cosmological constant problem. Some ways to justify the anthropic principle in inflationary cosmology and in the baby universe theory are proposed. A possible way to create an inflationary universe in a laboratory is also discussed.
