# Quantum Gravity Made Easy

@article{Klauder2019QuantumGM, title={Quantum Gravity Made Easy}, author={John Klauder}, journal={arXiv: General Relativity and Quantum Cosmology}, year={2019} }

Gravity does not naturally fit well with canonical quantization. Affine quantization is an alternative procedure that is similar to canonical quantization but may offer a positive result when canonical quantization fails to offer a positive result. Two simple examples given initially illustrate the power of affine quantization. These examples clearly point toward an affine quantization procedure that vastly simplifies a successful quantization of general relativity.
