Introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity

  • Thomas Thiemann (University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, Institute for Quantum Gravity)
Hörsaal für Theoretische Physik Universität Leipzig (Leipzig)


Loop Quantum Gravity is an incarnation of the canonical approach towards a synthesis of the principles of General Relativity and Quantum Field Theory. It is based on a Yang- Mills theory formulation in terms of Wilson loop functionals. The talk offers an introduction to the many conceptual and technical challenges that arise and its partial solutions.
