**Loop Quantum Gravity**

by Thomas Thiemann

**Publisher**: arXiv 2006**Number of pages**: 58

**Description**:

This is a (relatively) non-technical summary of the status of the quantum dynamics in Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG). We explain in detail the historical evolution of the subject and why the results obtained so far are non-trivial.
