Loop Quantum Gravity

Publisher: arXiv 2006
Number of pages: 58
This is a (relatively) non-technical summary of the status of the quantum dynamics in Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG). We explain in detail the historical evolution of the subject and why the results obtained so far are non-trivial.

After a description of some general arguments and an introduction to the canonical theory of gravity, the author reviews the background independent approach to quantum gravity, giving only a brief survey of Loop Quantum Gravity.

The intention of this book is to dig deep in the first principles of physics and develop a relativistic quantum theory from scratch. By this, I mean a theory for the so-called elementary particles which constitute building blocks of nature ...

An introduction to the canonical quantization of gravity performed in loop quantum gravity. A special feature of this introduction is the inclusion of new proposals for coupling matter to gravity that can be used to deparametrize the theory.

In this article we review the present status of the spin foam formulation of non-perturbative quantum gravity. In the first part we present a general introduction to the main ideas emphasizing their motivations from various perspectives.
