Dynamics for a 2-vertex Quantum Gravity Model
We use the recently introduced U(N) framework for loop quantum gravity to study the dynamics of spin network states on the simplest class of graphs: two vertices linked with an arbitrary number N of
Black hole state counting in loop quantum gravity: a number-theoretical approach.
An efficient method is given to exactly compute black hole entropy in the framework of loop quantum gravity, and a computer implementation of the proposed algorithm is used to confirm and extend previous results on the detailed structure of the black hole degeneracy spectrum.
Isolated Horizons and Black Hole Entropy in Loop Quantum Gravity
We review the black hole entropy calculation in the framework of Loop Quantum Gravity based on the quasi-local definition of a black hole encoded in the isolated horizon formalism. We show, by means
Probing loop quantum gravity with evaporating black holes.
Contrary to what was commonly thought, the discreteness of the area in LQG leads to characteristic features that qualify evaporating black holes as objects that could reveal quantum gravity footprints.
Black hole state degeneracy in loop quantum gravity
The combinatorial problem of counting the black hole quantum states within the isolated horizon framework in loop quantum gravity is analyzed. A qualitative understanding of the origin of the band
Black hole radiation spectrum in LQG: Isolated Horizon framework
Recent detailed analysis within the Loop Quantum Gravity calculation of black hole entropy shows a stair-like structure in the behavior of entropy as a function of horizon area. The non-trivial
