Abstract

The Einstein's general relativity is formulated in the Hamiltonian form for a spatially Bat, isotropic and homogeneous universe. Subsequently, we perform the canonical quantization procedure to the Hamiltonian to obtain the Wheeler - DeWitt equation. Solving the Wheeler - DeWitt equation and employing the de Broglie - Bohm interpretation to the wave function of the universe, we obtain a new version of spatially Bat Friedmann equation for the early universe where the scale factor of the universe is taken to be sufficiently small.
