Abstract

The interaction of a scalar quantum field with gravity is investigated in the semiclassical context where the spacetime is treated classically. It is essentially understood as a self-interaction of the quantum field, mediated by its own states. The relevant states here are not arbitrary but are selected by the principle of equivalence which is incorporated in the form of specific nonlinear constraint equations. A (state-dependent) dynamics for the quantum field is proposed which is based on a suggested nonlinear field equation.
