How the Classical World Got Its Localization: an Elementary Account of How the Age of the Universe May be Implicated in the Quantum-Classical Transition

Authors: C. L. Herzenberg

An expanding universe of finite duration appears to impose limits on the temporal and spatial extent of quantum waves. These limitations seem to be able to bring about localization for sufficiently large quantum objects that can resemble classical behavior. A threshold for a transition from quantum to classical behavior of a physical object is derived in terms of the magnitude of its moment of inertia.
