Energy Content of Gravitation as a Way to Quantify Both Entropy and Information Generation in the Early Universe

Authors: Andrew Walcott Beckwith

Based upon Alcubierre's formalism about energy flux of gravitational waves, as well as Saunder's treatment of temperature dependence of the Hubble parameter in the early universe , we initiate a particle count treatment of gravitons, and subsequent entropy generation which gives , via the standard model treatment of the FRW metric a way to explain/ justify a value of entropy of the order of S ~ 106 - 107 at the very onset of inflation.
