**An Elementary Introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity**

by Norbert Bodendorfer

**Publisher**: arXiv 2016**Number of pages**: 62

**Description**:

An introduction to loop quantum gravity is given, focussing on the fundamental aspects of the theory, different approaches to the dynamics, as well as possible future directions. It is structured in five lectures, including exercises, and requires only little prior knowledge of quantum mechanics, gauge theory, and general relativity.
