heal.abstract We examine an extension of the ideas of quantum cosmology and, in particular, the proposal of Hartle and Hawking for the boundary conditions of the Universe, to models which incorporate Yang-Mills fields. Inhomogeneous perturbations about a homogeneous, isotropic minisuperspace background model are considered, by expanding the Yang-Mills fields in harmonics of the spatial directions which are taken to be three-spheres. The expansions are made explicit for SO(N) gauge fields thereby obtaining formulae compatible with the formalism conventionally used in quantum cosmology. We apply these results to the gauge group SO(3) and derive the Lagrangian and the semi-classical wave function for this special case. en
