Spinfoam 2d quantum gravity and discrete bundles
In four dimensions (4D), general relativity (GR) can be formulated as a constrained BF theory; we show that the same is true in 2D. We describe a spinfoam quantization of this constrained BF
Group field theory and simplicial gravity path integrals: A model for Holst-Plebanski gravity
In a recent work, a dual formulation of group field theories as non-commutative quantum field theories has been proposed, providing an exact duality between spin foam models and non-commutative
2D manifold-independent spinfoam theory
A number of background-independent quantization procedures have recently been employed in 4D nonperturbative quantum gravity. We investigate and illustrate these techniques and their relation in the

3D spinfoam quantum gravity: matter as a phase of the group field theory
An effective field theory for matter coupled to three-dimensional quantum gravity was recently derived in the context of spinfoam models (Freidel and Livine 2006 Phys. Rev. Lett. 96 221301 (Preprint
A Renormalizable SYK-Type Tensor Field Theory
In this paper we introduce a simple field theoretic version of the Carrozza–Tanasa–Klebanov–Tarnopolsky (CTKT) “uncolored” holographic tensor model. It gives a more familiar interpretation to the
Positivity in Lorentzian Barrett–Crane models of quantum gravity
The Barrett–Crane models of Lorentzian quantum gravity are a family of spin foam models based on the Lorentz group. We show that for various choices of edge and face amplitudes, including the
Lagrangian approach to the Barrett-Crane spin foam model
We provide the Barrett-Crane spin foam model for quantum gravity with a discrete action principle, consisting in the usual BF term with discretized simplicity constraints which in the continuum turn
Spin foam quantization of $SO(4)$ Plebanski’s action
TLDR
A spin foam model for Riemannian general relativity is introduced by systematically implementing constraints as restrictions on paths in the state-sum of the BF theory by treating classical Plebanski's action as a BF action supplemented by constraints.

'Sum over surfaces' form of loop quantum gravity
We derive a spacetime formulation of quantum general relativity from (hamiltonian) loop quantum gravity. In particular, we study the quantum propagator that evolves the 3-geometry in proper time. We

The evolution operator for states of gauge theories in the graph representation (closely related to the loop representation of Gambini and Trias, and Rovelli and Smolin) is formulated as a weighted

We show that the partition function of the Ponzano-Regge quantum gravity model can be written as a sum over surfaces in a $(2+1)$ dimensional space-time. We suggest a geometrical meaning, in terms of

In loop quantum gravity we now have a clear picture of the quantum geometry of space, thanks in part to the theory of spin networks. The concept of ‘spin foam’ is intended to serve as a similar

We propose a new systematic approach that allows one to derive the spin foam (state sum) model of a theory starting from the corresponding classical action functional. It can be applied to any theory
