dc.description Includes bibliographical references.
dc.description.abstract This thesis consists of three parts - each of them focusing on different aspects relating to ensembles of universes and causally disconnected regions. In the first part I investigate possible measures over the space of FLRW models. In the second part I examine the behaviour of such transition regions for spherically symmetric space-times. In the last part of this thesis I discuss philosophical, physical, and probabilistic issues related to the concept of a multiverse - an ensemble of universes. The difference between ensembles of really existing universes and ensembles of possible universes is emphasized. en_ZA
