Loop Quantum Gravity
by Thomas Thiemann
Publisher: arXiv 2006
Number of pages: 58
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.

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.

A new synthesis of the principles of quantum mechanics and Relativity is proposed in the context of complex differential geometry. The positivity of the energy implies that wave functions and fields can be extended to complex spacetime.

This book presents a series of selected chapters written by renowned authors. Each chapter treats gravity and its quantization through known and alternative techniques, aiming a deeper understanding on the quantum nature of gravity.

The reader is introduced to the functional integral quantization of gravitation and Yang-Mills theory. The text is useful for all Ph.D. students who face the task of learning some basic concepts in quantum gravity in a relatively short time.
