On the correctness of cosmology from quantum potentialLashin, E.I.
AbstractWe examine in detail the cosmology based on quantal (Bohmian) trajectories as suggested in a recent study [A. F. Ali and S. Das, Phys. Lett. B 741, 276 (2014)]. We disagree with the conclusions regarding predicting the value of the cosmological constant Λ and evading the Big Bang singularity. Furthermore, we show that the approach of using a quantum corrected Raychaudhuri equation (QRE), as suggested in A. F. Ali and S. Das, Phys. Lett. B 741, 276 (2014), is unsatisfactory, because, essentially, it uses the Raychaudhuri equation (RE), which is a kinematical equation, in order to predict dynamics. In addition, even within this inconsistent framework, the authors have adopted unjustified assumptions and carried out incorrect steps leading to doubtful conclusions.
