We argue that String Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity can be thought of as describing different regimes of a single unified theory of quantum gravity. LQG can be thought of as providing the pre-geometric exoskeleton out of which macroscopic geometry emerges and String Theory then becomes the \emph{effective} theory which describes the dynamics of that exoskeleton. The core of the argument rests on the claim that the Nambu-Goto action of String Theory can be viewed as the expectation value of the…

In this paper, a very simple novel model is presented concerning the unified field theory (“theory of everything”). In the scope of this novel theory, it is assumed that matter, space and time are
Can Alternative Scientific Theories Challenge Scientific Rationality?
One of the reasons for relativistic attitudes toward science is the impossibility of justifying scientists’ decisions in the face of alternative theories. According to this paper, an alternative
Convergence argument against the challenge of “unconceived alternative theories”
Kyle Stanford (2001, 2006a) poses a new challenge to scientific realism, known as the “new pessimistic induction.” According to him, for each theory chosen by scientists, a class of theories exists
Superentropic black hole with Immirzi hair
In the context of f(R) generalizations to the Holst action, endowed with a dynamical Immirzi field, we derive an analytic solution describing asymptotically Anti-de Sitter black holes with hyperbolic


Emergence of stringlike physics from Lorentz invariance in loop quantum gravity
We consider a quantum field theory on a spherically symmetric quantum spacetime described by loop quantum gravity. The spin network description of spacetime in such a theory leads to equations for
A note on quantum supergravity and AdS/CFT
We note that the non-perturbative quantisation of supergravity as recently investigated using loop quantum gravity techniques provides an opportunity to probe an interesting sector of the AdS/CFT
The LQG string—loop quantum gravity quantization of string theory: I. Flat target space
We combine (i) background-independent loop quantum gravity (LQG) quantization techniques, (ii) the mathematically rigorous framework of algebraic quantum field theory (AQFT) and (iii) the theory of
Quantum Gravity via Causal Dynamical Triangulations
Causal dynamical triangulations (CDT ) represent a lattice regularization of the sum over spacetime histories, providing us with a nonperturbative formulation of quantum gravity. The ultraviolet
Black holes in full quantum gravity
Quantum black holes have been studied extensively in quantum gravity and string theory, using various semiclassical or background-dependent approaches. We explore the possibility of studying black
Entropy of Quantum Black Holes
In the Loop Quantum Gravity, black holes (or even more general Isolated Hori- zons) are described by a SU(2) Chern{Simons theory. There is an equivalent formulation of the horizon degrees of freedom
An Introduction to String Theory
We give a pedagogical introduction to string theory, D-branes and p-brane solutions. 1 Introductory remarks These notes are based on lectures given at the 271-th WE-Haereus-Seminar ‘Aspects of
Background independent quantum gravity: A Status report
The goal of this review is to present an introduction to loop quantum gravity—a background-independent, non-perturbative approach to the problem of unification of general relativity and quantum
