From Classical To Quantum Gravity: Introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity
by

Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 55

Description:
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.
