# Black holes in loop quantum gravity

@article{Perez2017BlackHI, title={Black holes in loop quantum gravity}, author={Alejandro Perez}, journal={Reports on Progress in Physics}, year={2017}, volume={80} }

This is a review of results on black hole physics in the context of loop quantum gravity. The key feature underlying these results is the discreteness of geometric quantities at the Planck scale predicted by this approach to quantum gravity. Quantum discreteness follows directly from the canonical quantization prescription when applied to the action of general relativity that is suitable for the coupling of gravity with gauge fields, and especially with fermions. Planckian discreteness and…
