**Introductory Lectures on Quantum Cosmology**

by J. J. Halliwell

**Publisher**: arXiv 1990**Number of pages**: 107

**Description**:

We describe the modern approach to quantum cosmology, as initiated by Hartle and Hawking, Linde, Vilenkin and others. The primary aim is to explain how one determines the consequences for the late universe of a given quantum theory of cosmological initial or boundary conditions. It also includes a detailed treatment of the WKB interpretation.
