The open problem of constructing a consistent and experimentally tested quantum theory of the gravitational field has its place at the heart of fundamental physics. The main approaches can be roughly divided into two classes: either one seeks a unified quantum framework of all interactions or one starts with a direct quantization of general relativity. In the first class, string theory (M-theory) is the only known example. In the second class, one can make an additional methodological… Expand
Quantum Geometrodynamics of Higher Derivative Theories with and without Conformal Symmetry
This thesis concerns with a framework of canonical quantization of gravity based on the EinsteinHilbert action extended by terms quadratic in curvature. The aim is to investigate the semiclassicalExpand
Quantum dyanmics of loop quantum gravity
In the last 20 years, loop quantum gravity, a background independent approach to unify general relativity and quantum mechanics, has been widely investigated. The aim of loop quantum gravity is toExpand
Symmetry and Evolution in Quantum Gravity
We propose an operator constraint equation for the wavefunction of the Universe that admits genuine evolution. While the corresponding classical theory is equivalent to the canonical decomposition ofExpand
