  author={F. Schuller and Christof Witte},
  journal={Physical Review D},
We present the practical step-by-step procedure for constructing canonical gravitational dynamics and kinematics directly from any previously specified quantizable classical matter dynamics, and then illustrate the application of this recipe by way of two completely worked case studies. Following the same procedure, any phenomenological proposal for fundamental matter dynamics must be supplemented with a suitable gravity theory providing the coefficients and kinematical interpretation of the… 
Gravity actions from matter actions
Starting from classical matter dynamics on a smooth manifold that are required to be predictive and quantizable, we derive a set of ‘gravitational master equations’ that determine the Lagrangian
Gravitational closure of matter field equations
The requirement that both the matter and the geometry of a spacetime canonically evolve together, starting and ending on shared Cauchy surfaces and independently of the intermediate foliation, leaves
Fermions in the Asymptotic Safety Program
For the asymptotic safety mechanism to be able to operate the existence of a suitable renormalization group fixed point is crucial. This fixed point governs the high energy behavior of theory and
Causal propagation of constraints in bimetric relativity in standard 3+1 form
Abstract The goal of this work was to investigate the propagation of the constraints in the ghost-free bimetric theory where the evolution equations are in standard 3+1 form. It is established
Bimetric interactions based on metric congruences
In massive gravity and bigravity, spin-2 interactions are defined in terms of a square root matrix that involves two metrics. In this work, the interactions are constructed using a congruence matrix
Clocks and Chronogeometry: Rotating Spacetimes and the Relativistic Null Hypothesis
Recent work in the physics literature demonstrates that, in particular classes of rotating spacetimes, physical light rays in general do not traverse null geodesics. Having presented this result, we
Gravitational properties of light - The gravitational field of a laser pulse
The gravitational field of a laser pulse of finite lifetime, is investigated in the framework of linearized gravity. Although the effects are very small, they may be of fundamental physical interest.
Gravitational radiation from birefringent matter dynamics
We present the second-order gravitational dynamics for a spacetime inhabited by matter fields which feature vacuum birefringence. The derivation follows a perturbative variant of the covariant
Covariant constructive gravity: A step-by-step guide towards alternative theories of gravity
We propose a step-by-step manual for the construction of alternative theories of gravity, perturbatively as well as nonperturbatively. The construction is guided by no more than two fundamental


Gravitational dynamics for all tensorial spacetimes carrying predictive, interpretable and quantizable matter
Only a severely restricted class of tensor fields can provide classical spacetime geometries, namely those that can carry matter field equations that are predictive, interpretable and quantizable.
Gravity actions from matter actions
Starting from classical matter dynamics on a smooth manifold that are required to be predictive and quantizable, we derive a set of ‘gravitational master equations’ that determine the Lagrangian
Geometrodynamics regained - a lagrangian approach
The closing relation between two super‐Hamiltonians is cast into a condition on the super‐Lagrangian by a functional Legendre transformation. It is shown that the ADM super‐Lagrangian provides the
Canonical variables for general relativity
The general theory of relativity is cast into normal Hamiltonian form in terms of two pairs of independent conjugate field variables. These variables are explicitly exhibited and obey ordinary
Geometry of physical dispersion relations
To serve as a dispersion relation, a cotangent bundle function must satisfy three simple algebraic properties. These conditions are derived from the inescapable physical requirements that local
The four-dimensionality of space and the einstein tensor
All tensors of contravariant valency two, which are divergence free on one index and which are concomitants of the metric tensor, together with its first two derivatives, are constructed in the
