The ''improved dynamics'' of loop quantum cosmology is extended to include anisotropies of the Bianchi type I model. As in the isotropic case, a massless scalar field serves as a relational time parameter. However, the extension is nontrivial because one has to face several conceptual subtleties as well as technical difficulties. These include a better understanding of the relation between loop quantum gravity and loop quantum cosmology, handling novel features associated with the nonlocal…

Examination of the nature of the Bianchi type cosmological singularities

We present quantum (and classical) Bianchi I model, with free massless scalar field, of the Universe. Our model may be treated as the simplest prototype of the quantum BKL
