formalisms, gauge theories of the Einstein-Cartan type, Metric-affine gravities and, perhaps the most popular, the string theory. In addition to the above mentioned techniques, one can also refer to loop quantum gravity, spin foam quantum gravity, Euclidean quantum gravity and Horava-Lifshitz gravity as emergent gravity models. There are a couple of them. You could flip through and start reading the one that suits you or meets your requirements. I list them below: * Quantum Gravity by Carlo Rovelli * Covariant Loop Quantum Gravity by Carlo Rovelli & Francesca Vidotto.

We coauthored a book "Loops, knots, gauge theories and quantum gravity" in and the first book for undergraduates on loop quantum gravity in (available in Spanish) and have published many papers together. We study the quantization of general relativity using canonical methods. Eduardo Fradkin, Field Theories in Condensed Matter Physics Shankar, Quantum Field Theory and Condensed Matter Both of these books discuss quantum eld theory in condensed matter physics. Much of the material is restricted to eld theories in d= 1+1 and d= 2+1 dimensions, and so useful for Sections 7 .

AshtekarandLewandowski To appear in Knots and Quantum Gravity, ed. , Oxford Abstract Integral calculus on the space A/G of gauge equivalent connec-tions is developed. Loops, knots, links and graphs feature promi-nently in this description. The framework is well–suited for quanti-. The inability of scientists to create a theory of quantum gravity arises from long-standing tensions between general relativity and quantum mechanics. There.

Loop representations (and the related topic of knot theory) are of considerable current interest because they provide a unified arena for the study of the gauge invariant quantization of Yang-Mills theories and gravity, and suggest a promising approach to the eventual unification of the four fundamental by: Loops, Knots, Gauge Theories and Quantum Gravity.

The book begins with a detailed review of loop representation theory. It then goes on to describe loop representations in Maxwell theory, Yang.

Ashtekar–Barbero variables of canonical quantum gravity. The introduction of Ashtekar variables cast general relativity in the same language as gauge theories. It was in particular the inability to have good control over the space of solutions to the Gauss' law and spatial diffeomorphism constraints that led Rovelli and Smolin to consider a new representation – the loop representation.

This book is an introductory explication on the theme of knot and link invariants as generalized amplitudes (vacuum-vacuum amplitudes) for a quasi-physical process.

The demands of the knot theory, coupled with a quantum statistical frame work create a context that naturally and powerfully includes an extraordinary range of interelated topics in topology and mathematical physics.

A theory of quantum gravity, loop quantum gravity (LQG) attempts to merge quantum mechanics and general relativity, incorporating matter of the Standard Model into the framework established for the pure quantum gravity case.

As a candidate for quantum gravity, LQG competes with string theory. According to Albert Einstein, gravity is not a force – it is a property of spacetime itself.

Quantum gravity poses the problem of merging quantum mechanics and general relativity, the two great conceptual revolutions in the physics of the twentieth century.

Loop quantum gravity is string theory’s biggest competitor. It gets less press than string theory, in part because it has a fundamentally more limited goal: a quantum theory of gravity.

Loop quantum gravity performs this feat by trying to quantize space itself — in other words, treat space like it.

Someday I would like to write a modified version of this book which eliminates all the knot theory and loop quantum gravity, and says more about differential geometry, special relativity, Maxwell's equations, the Yang-Mills equations and general relativity.

That would be a more conservative book, written by an older and wiser man. Pullin's book (with R. Gambini) Loops, Knots, Gauge Theories and Quantum Gravity surveys the state of the art in loop quantum gravity at the time of its publication.
