COVARIANT LOOP QUANTUM GRAVITY | ROVELLI & VIDOTTO

|| CLQG | AN ELEMENTARY INTRODUCTION TO QUANTUM GRAVITY & SPINFOAM THEORY ||

Quantum gravity is among the most fascinating problems in physics . It modifies our understanding of time , space and matter . The recent development of the loop approach has allowed us to explore domains ranging from black hole thermodynamics to the early Universe .

This book provides readers with a simple introduction to loop quantum gravity , centred on its covariant approach .

It focuses on the physical and conceptual aspects of the problem and includes the background material needed to enter this lively domain of research , making it ideal for researchers and graduate students .

Topics covered include quanta of space ; classical and quantum physics without time ; tetrad formalism ; Holst action ; lattice QCD ; Regge calculus ; ADM and Ashtekar variables ; Ponzano-Regge and Turaev-Viro amplitudes ; kinematics and dynamics of 4D Lorentzian quantum gravity ; spectrum of area and volume ; coherent states ; classical limit ; matter couplings ; graviton propagator ; spinfoam cosmology and black hole thermodynamics .
