From Classical To Quantum Gravity: Introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity
by Kristina Giesel, Hanno Sahlmann
Publisher: arXiv 2012
Number of pages: 55
We present 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, thus making its dynamics more tractable.

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 ...

A new synthesis of the principles of quantum mechanics and Relativity is proposed in the context of complex differential geometry. The positivity of the energy implies that wave functions and fields can be extended to complex spacetime.

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 ...

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.
