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

by Kristina Giesel, Hanno Sahlmann

**Publisher**: arXiv 2012**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.
