4. Reading List on Canonical Quantum Gravity. I'll just give a few references on canonical gravity, both classical and quantum. These I have found useful: Claus Kiefer's Quantum Gravity. Just published in . Modern Canonical Quantum General Relativity Thiemann. Categories: Physics\\Theory of Relativity and Gravitation quantum gravity consider compact physical therefore linear structure canonical quantisation complex topology You can write a book . Statistical classical mechanics, quantum mechanics, and gravity theory (quantum and nonquantum) are all developed and well-known theories. These theories represent the basis of modern physics. . Why Quantum Gravity? Jared Kaplan Department of Physics and Astronomy, Johns Hopkins University In the canonical formalism, the classical equations of motion follow from Poisson brackets with the Hamiltonian. After we quantize, these become the commutation relations that state that Hgenerates elli/book File Size: KB.

This book is concerned with the attempts to unify Einstein's theory of general relativity and quantum theory into a theory of quantum gravity. It presents, for the first time, most of the approaches in a single textbook. Among them are canonical quantum gravity (including loop quantum gravity), covariant quantum gravity, and string theory. The book Author: Claus Kiefer.   The resulting quantum dynamics, described by the Wheeler–DeWitt equation, is fully discussed in order to outline its merits and limits. Afterwards, the reformulation of Canonical Quantum Brand: World Scientific Publishing Company. Quantum field theory (QFT) is the combination of classical field theory, special relativity, and quantum mechanics (see Fig. 2) and it is one of the most experimentally successful theories of modern physics. . Hamiltonian and Hamilton-Jacobi canonical quantization of classical gravity: continuum vs discrete space-time configurations; Trajectory-based representation of quantum space-time dynamics and emergent .

Quantum Gravity. Quantum Gravity, broadly construed, is a physical theory (still ‘under construction’) incorporating both the principles of general relativity and quantum theory.

Starting with an analysis of the structure of constrained systems and the problems of their quantization, it discusses the canonical formulation of classical relativity from different perspectives and leads to recent applications of canonical methods to create a quantum theory of gravity.

The book Brand: Springer-Verlag Berlin Heidelberg. The search for a quantum gravity theory, a theory expected to combine the principles of general relativity and quantum theory, has led to some of the most deepest and most difficult conceptual and mathematical questions of modern physics.

The resulting quantum dynamics, described by the Wheeler–DeWitt equation, is fully discussed in order to outline its merits and limits.

Afterwards, the reformulation of Canonical Quantum. In physics, canonical quantization is a procedure for quantizing a classical theory, while attempting to preserve the formal structure, such as symmetries, of the classical theory, to the greatest extent.

that the quantum theory is based on formulating classical general relativity as a theory of connections rather than metrics as compared to in original version due to Arnowitt, Deser and Misner.

Canonical. The primary aim of the book is to present an up- to-date account of a non-perturbative, canonical quantization program for gravity. Many of the technical results obtained in the process are.
