DESCRIPTION

This first comprehensive and coherent introduction to modern quantum cosmology presents a useful survey of the many profound consequences of supersymmetry (supergravity) in quantum cosmology. Covering a general introduction to quantum cosmology, Hamiltonian supergravity and canonical quantization and quantum amplitudes through to models of supersymmetric mini superspace and quantum wormholes, it also includes exciting further developments, including the possible finiteness of supergravity. With ample introductory material, this topical volume is well suited as a graduate text for students and researchers in theoretical and mathematical physics, and cosmology.
