Analytic Results in 2D Causal Dynamical Triangulations: A Review

We describe the motivation behind the recent formulation of a nonperturbative path integral for Lorentzian quantum gravity defined through Causal Dynamical Triangulations (CDT). In the case of two

Relating covariant and canonical approaches to triangulated models of quantum gravity

In this paper we explore the relation between covariant and canonical approaches to quantum gravity and BF theory. We will focus on the dynamical triangulation and spin-foam models, which have in

A discrete history of the Lorentzian path integral

In these lecture notes, I describe the motivation behind a recent formulation of a non-perturbative gravitational path integral for Lorentzian (instead of the usual Euclidean) space-times, and give a

This topical review gives a comprehensive overview and assessment of recent results in causal dynamical triangulations, a modern formulation of lattice gravity, whose aim is to obtain a theory of

Fixed-topology Lorentzian triangulations: Quantum Regge Calculus in the Lorentzian domain

A bstractA key insight used in developing the theory of Causal Dynamical Triangu-lations (CDTs) is to use the causal (or light-cone) structure of Lorentzian manifolds to restrict the class of

CDT - an Entropic Theory of Quantum Gravity

In these lectures we describe how a theory of quantum gravity may be constructed in terms of a lattice formulation based on so-called causal dynamical triangulations (CDT). We discuss how the

CDT Quantum Toroidal Spacetimes: An Overview

Lattice formulations of gravity can be used to study non-perturbative aspects of quantum gravity. Causal Dynamical Triangulations (CDT) is a lattice model of gravity that has been used in this way.

Non-perturbative 3d Lorentzian quantum gravity

TLDR
The phase structure of the Wick-rotated path integral in three dimensions with the aid of computer simulations is investigated, finding a whole range of the gravitational coupling constant k{sub 0} for which the functional integral is dominated by nondegenerate three-dimensional space-times.

Lorentzian and Euclidean Quantum Gravity - Analytical and Numerical Results

We review some recent attempts to extract information about the nature of quantum gravity, with and without matter, by quantum field theoretical methods. More specifically, we work within a covariant

Singular Structure in 4 D Simplicial Gravity

We show that the phase transition previously observed in dynamical triangulation models of quantum gravity can be understood as being due to the creation of a singular link. The transition between

Crossing the c=1 barrier in 2d Lorentzian quantum gravity

TLDR
Analysis of a system of eight Ising models coupled to dynamically triangulated Lorentzian geometries provides evidence for the conjecture that the KPZ values of the critical exponents in 2d Euclidean quantum gravity are entirely due to the presence of baby universes.

Nonperturbative lorentzian path integral for gravity

TLDR
A well-defined regularized path integral is constructed for Lorentzian quantum gravity in terms of dynamically triangulated causal space-times, where the degenerate geometric phases found in dynamicallyTriangulated Euclidean gravity are not present.

TLDR
Three major areas of research are reviewed: gauge-theoretic approaches, both in a path-integral and a Hamiltonian formulation; quantum Regge calculus; and the method of dynamical triangulations, confining attention to work that is strictly four-dimensional, strictly discrete, and strictly quantum in nature.
