Appendix B Equations at crossover

As in Appendix A, conventions including the use of abstract indices are as in Penrose and Rindler (1984, 1986), but with the cosmological constant here denoted by A, rather than by the 'A' of that work, the scalar i curvature quantity there referred to as 'A' being 24R. There are some aspects of the detailed analysis presented in what follows that are incomplete and provisional, and it is likely that refinements of these proposals will be needed for a more complete treatment. Nevertheless, we do appear to have well-defined classical equations that allow us to propagate in a consistent and fully determined way from the remote future of one aeon into the post-big-bang region of the next.
