Recently the master constraint programme (MCP) for loop quantum gravity (LQG) was launched which replaces the infinite number of Hamiltonian constraints by a single master constraint. The MCP is designed to overcome the complications associated with the non-Lie-algebra structure of the Dirac algebra of Hamiltonian constraints and was successfully tested in various field theory models. For the case of 3+1 gravity itself, so far only a positive quadratic form for the master constraint operator… 
The Phoenix Project: Master Constraint Programme for Loop Quantum Gravity
The Hamiltonian constraint remains the major unsolved problem in loop quantum gravity (LQG). Some time ago, a mathematically consistent candidate Hamiltonian constraint was proposed but there are
Testing the Master Constraint Programme for Loop Quantum Gravity I. General Framework
TLDR
It is shown that the master constraint programme has a wide range of applicability but that there are many, physically interesting subtleties that must be taken care of in doing so.

This is the third paper in our series of five in which we test the master constraint programme for solving the Hamiltonian constraint in loop quantum gravity. In this work, we analyse models which,

This is the fifth and final paper in our series of five in which we test the master constraint programme for solving the Hamiltonian constraint in loop quantum gravity. Here we consider interacting
On the Implementation of the Canonical Quantum Simplicity Constraint
In this paper, we discuss several approaches to solve the quadratic and linear simplicity constraints in the context of the canonical formulations of higher dimensional general relativity and
On the relation of canonical and covariant formulations of Loop Quantum Gravity
Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) is a background independent approach towards a quantum theory of gravity that splits into a canonical and a covariant branch the latter of which is also often called spin
Matrix elements of Lorentzian Hamiltonian constraint in loop quantum gravity
The Hamiltonian constraint is the key element of the canonical formulation of LQG coding its dynamics. In Ashtekar-Barbero variables it naturally splits into the so called Euclidean and Lorentzian
Algebraic quantum gravity (AQG): IV. Reduced phase space quantization of loop quantum gravity
We perform a canonical, reduced phase space quantization of general relativity by loop quantum gravity (LQG) methods. The explicit construction of the reduced phase space is made possible by the
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 to

This paper deals with several technical issues of non-perturbative four-dimensional Lorentzian canonical quantum gravity in the continuum that arose in connection with the recently constructed
Quantum spin dynamics (QSD) V: Quantum Gravity as the natural regulator of the Hamiltonian constraint of matter quantum field theories
It is an old speculation in physics that, once the gravitational field is successfully quantized, it should serve as the natural regulator of infrared and ultraviolet singularities that plague

We determine the complete and rigorous kernel of the Wheeler - DeWitt constraint operator for four-dimensional, Lorentzian, non-perturbative, canonical vacuum quantum gravity in the continuum. We do
Quantum Spin Dynamics (QSD)
An anomaly-free operator corresponding to the Wheeler - DeWitt constraint of Lorentzian, four-dimensional, canonical, non-perturbative vacuum gravity is constructed in the continuum. This operator is

Interesting nonlinear functions on the phase spaces of classical field theories can never be quantized immediately because the basic fields of the theory become operator-valued distributions.
