    • Abstract

       

      A brief account for the higher order wave function in Hartle-Hawking (H-H) proposal is given which is compared with the tunneling wave function due to Vilenkin. The probability distributions are determined for both types of wave functions. Also a class of solutions are evaluated using H-H approach for Kantowski-Sachs metric with a scalar field and inflation is observed.
