Quantization of Einsteinaether scalar field cosmology
Abstract
We present, for the first time, the quantization process for the Einsteinaether scalar field cosmology. We consider a cosmological theory proposed as a Lorentz violating inflationary model, where the aether and scalar fields interact through the assumption that the aether action constants are ultralocal functions of the scalar field. For this specific theory there is a valid minisuperspace description which we use to quantize. For a particular relation between the two free functions entering the reduced Lagrangian the solution to the WheelerDeWitt equation as also the generic classical solution are presented for any given arbitrary potential function.
