Loop Quantum Gravity: A Structural Review

Jul 15
Group Seminar
10:00 am o'clock to 11:30 am o'clock
Prof. Madhavan Varadarajan (Raman Research Institute)
SR 02.779

LQG is an attempt to construct a non-perturbative quantization of General Relativity.
Rather than treat the quantum gravitational field as a quantum excitation over a fixed classical spacetime geometry, it seeks to construct the quantum mechanics of the gravitational field as a whole without recourse to any classical background spacetime geometry. In this talk I will focus on canonical LQG. I will provide a broad overview of its key structural features and their implications, and close with a brief description of my current research.
