Following standard quantization procedures the Wheeler-DeWitt equation in the minisuperspace approximation is derived for empty and non-empty universes.
Minkowski Functionals in Cosmology - Minkowski functionals provide a novel tool to characterize the large-scale galaxy distribution in the Universe. Here we give a brief tutorial on the basic features of these morphological measures and indicate their practical application for simulation data and galaxy redshift catalogues as examples.

This paper reviews the mathematical properties of multi-connected spaces, and the different tools to classify them and to analyse their properties.

They are designed to offer an overview of how the cosmological constant alters standard cosmology, and to discuss whether a non-zero cosmological constant exists today.
Cosmological Constant - Recently two different groups have measured the apparent brightness of supernovae with redshifts near z = 1. Based on this data the old idea of a cosmological constant is making a comeback.
