Title: Anisotropic homogeneous models in loop quantum cosmology
Abstract: Loop quantum cosmology is a simplified version of the full quantum geometry program, applied to models of interest in cosmology. When these are considered, the Hamiltonian constraint becomes a partial difference equation acting on the wave function. For anisotropic homogeneous models, these equations are not straightforward to solve; we discuss generic methods that can be used, and present results for various specific cases.
