Wave Function of the Universe

- J. Hartle, S. Hawking
- Medicine, Physics
- 15 December 1983

The quantum state of a spatially closed universe can be described by a wave function which is a functional on the geometries of compact three-manifolds and on the values of the matter fields on these… Expand

Quantum Mechanics in the Light of Quantum Cosmology

- M. Gell-Mann, J. Hartle
- Physics
- 13 March 2018

We sketch a quantum mechanical framework for the universe as a whole. Within that framework we propose a program for describing the ultimate origin in quantum cosmology of the quasiclassical domain… Expand

Path Integral Derivation of Black Hole Radiance

- J. Hartle, S. Hawking
- Physics
- 15 April 1976

The Feynman path-integral method is applied to the quantum mechanics of a scalar particle moving in the background geometry of a Schwarzschild black hole. The amplitude for the black hole to emit a… Expand
