Quantum canonical transformations are defined algebraically. This generalizes the quantum canonical transformations to include non-unitary transformations. Their importance for constructing solutions of the Schroedinger equation is discussed.

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.

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.
