New Paths Towards Quantum Gravity

The division of the book in two parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. The former is represented by tutorial reviews on non-commutative geometry, on space-time discretization and renormalization and on gauge field path integrals. The latter one by lectures on cohomology, on stochastic geometry and on mathematical tools for the effective action in quantum gravity.

The reader is introduced to the functional integral quantization of gravitation and Yang-Mills theory. The text is useful for all Ph.D. students who face the task of learning some basic concepts in quantum gravity in a relatively short time.
Loop Quantum GravityLoop Quantum Gravity
by Thomas Thiemann - arXiv
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.
