- Matter-Gravity Entanglement in Quantum Gravity

Quantum gravity may be viewed as a bipartite matter-geometry system. Evolution ofÂ matter-geometry entanglement entropy is an interesting question for issues such as the emergence of QFT on curved spacetime from quantum gravity: emergence would require initial states to evolve to product states. We study this question in a cosmological model. We give numerical evidence that matter-geometry entanglement entropy increases indefinitely (with respect to a relational time) for apparently arbitrary initial states. This result raises the question of whether matter and geometry remain entangled in a large Universe.
