**Introduction to Modern Canonical Quantum General Relativity**

by Thomas Thiemann

**Publisher**: arXiv 2001**ISBN/ASIN**: 0521842638**Number of pages**: 303

**Description**:

This is an introduction to the research field of canonical quantum general relativity, sometimes called "loop quantum gravity". Canonical quantum general relativity is an attempt to define a mathematically rigorous, non-perturbative, background independent theory of Lorentzian quantum gravity in four spacetime dimensions in the continuum.
