Mixmaster quantum cosmology in terms of physical dynamics
Type of Work
An approach to quantum cosmology, relying on strengths of both canonical and path integral formalisms, is applied to the cosmological model, Bianchi type IX. Physical quantum states are constructed on the maximal slice of the cosmological history. A path integral is derived which evolves observables off the maximal slice. This result is compared a path integral propagator derived earlier with conventional Faddeev-Poppov gauge fixing.
