Quantum Cosmology for a Quadratic Theory of Gravity

Abstract

For pure fourth order (L ∝ R) quantum cosmology the Wheeler-DeWitt equation is solved exactly for the closed homogeneous and isotropic model. It is shown that by imposing as boundary condition that Ψ = 0 at the origin of the universe the wave functions behave as suggested by Vilenkin. PACS numbers: 0450,0460
