Inspired by previous work in 2+1 dimensional quantum gravity, which found evidence for a discretization of time in the quantum theory, we reexamine the issue for the case of pure Lorentzian gravity with vanishing cosmological constant and spatially compact universes of genus g ≥ 2. Taking as our starting point the Chern-Simons formulation with Poincar… CONTINUE READING
