  • AbstractQuantum General Relativity (QGR), sometimes called Loop Quantum Gravity, has matured overthe past fifteen years to a mathematically rigorous candidate quantum field theory of the gravita-tional field. The features that distinguish it from other quantum gravity theories are 1) backgroundindependence and 2) minimality of structures.Background independence means that this is a non-perturbative approach in which one does notperturb around a given, distinguished, classical background metric… CONTINUE READING
