An Introduction to Quantum Gravity
by Bryce S. DeWitt, Giampiero Esposito
Publisher: arXiv 2007
Number of pages: 68
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.

Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose put forward their related but rather different viewpoints on the nature of space and time. They discuss their different approaches. A basic knowledge of general relativity and quantum theory is assumed.

The division of the book in two (overlapping) parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. This book will benefit everyone working or entering the field of quantum gravity research.

An overview of the current status of singularities in classical and quantum gravity, starting with the classical singularity theorems. This suggests possible routes for quantum gravity to evade the devastating conclusion of the theorems ...

This article reviews the present status of the spin foam approach to the quantization of gravity. Special attention is payed to the pedagogical presentation of the recently introduced new models for four dimensional quantum gravity.
