Cosmological Histories for the New Variables

  title={Cosmological Histories for the New Variables},
  author={S. Roland Major and L. N. Smolin},
Histories and measures for quantum cosmology are investigated through a quantization of the Bianchi IX cosmology using path integral techniques. The result, derived in the context of Ashtekar variables, is compared with earlier work. A non-trivial correction to the measure is found, which may dominate the classical potential for universes on the Planck… CONTINUE READING
