An Introduction to Quantum Gravity
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 68

Description:
The reader is introduced, in a pedagogical way, to the functional integral quantization of gravitation and Yang-Mills theory. It is hoped that such a paper will remain useful for all lecturers or Ph.D. students who face the task of introducing (resp. learning) some basic concepts in quantum gravity in a relatively short time.
