Loop Quantum Gravity and Black Hole Physics

I summarize the basic ideas and formalism of loop quantum gravity. I illustrate the results on the discrete aspects of quantum geometry and two applications of these results to black hole physics. In particular, I discuss in detail the derivation of the Bekenstein-Hawking formula for the entropy of a black hole from rst principles.
