The unification between gravity and quantum field theory is one of the major problems in contemporary fundamental Physics. This book presents a series of selected chapters written by renowned authors. Each chapter treats gravity and its quantization through known and alternative techniques, aiming a deeper understanding on the quantum nature of gravity.

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.

This is an introduction to canonical quantum general relativity, an attempt to define a mathematically rigorous, non-perturbative, background independent theory of Lorentzian quantum gravity in four spacetime dimensions in the continuum.

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.

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 ...
