A Friedmann-Robertson-Walker universe filled with a conformally invariant scalar field is quantized by the reduced phase space method. In the gauge t = R, where R is the scale factor, a complete set of quantum states is exhibited, whose properties are compared to those of the Hartle-Hawking and Vilenkin wave functions. The issue of time, singularities, and… (More)
