Loop gravity string

  title={Loop gravity string},
  author={Laurent Freidel and Alejandro Perez and Daniele Pranzetti},
  journal={Physical Review D},
In this work we study canonical gravity in finite regions for which we introduce a generalisation of the Gibbons-Hawking boundary term including the Immirzi parameter. We study the canonical formulation on a spacelike hypersuface with a boundary sphere and show how the presence of this term leads to an unprecedented type of degrees of freedom coming from the restoration of the gauge and diffeomorphism symmetry at the boundary. In the presence of a loop quantum gravity state, these boundary…

Lorentz-diffeomorphism edge modes in 3d gravity
A bstractThe proper definition of subsystems in gauge theory and gravity requires an extension of the local phase space by including edge mode fields. Their role is on the one hand to restore gauge
Boundary effects in General Relativity with tetrad variables
Varying the gravitational Lagrangian produces a boundary contribution that has various physical applications. It determines the right boundary terms to be added to the action once boundary conditions
Edge modes of gravity. Part II. Corner metric and Lorentz charges
In this second paper of the series we continue to spell out a new program for quantum gravity, grounded in the notion of corner symmetry algebra and its representations. Here we focus on tetrad
Loop quantum gravity boundary dynamics and SL(2,C) gauge theory
In the context of the quest for a holographic formulation of quantum gravity, we investigate the basic boundary theory structure for loop quantum gravity. In 3 + 1 space-time dimensions, the boundary
Edge modes of gravity. Part III. Corner simplicity constraints
In the tetrad formulation of gravity, the so-called simplicity constraints play a central role. They appear in the Hamiltonian analysis of the theory, and in the Lagrangian path integral when
At the Corner of Space and Time
We perform a rigorous piecewise-flat discretization of classical general relativity in the first-order formulation, in both 2+1 and 3+1 dimensions, carefully keeping track of curvature and torsion
Kinematical gravitational charge algebra
When formulated in terms of connection and coframes, and in the time gauge, the phase space of general relativity consists of a pair of conjugate fields: the flux 2-form and the Ashtekar connection.
Gravitational edge modes: from Kac–Moody charges to Poincaré networks
We revisit the canonical framework for general relativity in its connection-vierbein formulation, recasting the Gauss law, the Bianchi identity and the space diffeomorphism bulk constraints as
Dual2+1Dloop quantum gravity on the edge
We develop a new perspective on the discretization of the phase space structure of gravity in 2+1 dimensions as a piecewise-flat geometry in 2 spatial dimensions. Starting from a subdivision of the

The parser, especially its mapping rule interpreter, used in KBMT-89 is described, characterized by its ability to produce semantic and syntactic structures of a parse simultaneously and therefore more efficiently than other kinds of analyzers.
