# Algebraic quantum gravity (AQG): II. Semiclassical analysis

@article{Giesel2007AlgebraicQG, title={Algebraic quantum gravity (AQG): II. Semiclassical analysis}, author={Kristina Giesel and Thomas Thiemann}, journal={Classical and Quantum Gravity}, year={2007}, volume={24}, pages={2499 - 2564} }

In the previous paper (Giesel and Thiemann 2006 Conceptual setup Preprint gr-qc/0607099) a new combinatorial and thus purely algebraical approach to quantum gravity, called algebraic quantum gravity (AQG), was introduced. In the framework of AQG, existing semiclassical tools can be applied to operators that encode the dynamics of AQG such as the master constraint operator. In this paper, we will analyse the semiclassical limit of the (extended) algebraic master constraint operator and show that…
