On Quantum Cosmology of the R2 Gravity Theory

Mohamed A. Ahmed

Abstract


We study the minisuperspace quantization of the theory of gravity where an R2 term is included in the Einstein Hilbert action. Matter is described by a perfect fluid and we employ the generally relativistic hydrodynamic formulation of Schutz. We set up the Wheeler-DeWitt equation and obtain its solutions. A finite norm wave packet solution is constructed and used to calculate asymptotic values for the expectation values of the scale factor and the Ricci scalar
