A model for quantized gravity coupled to matter in the form of a single scalar field is investigated in four dimensions. For the metric degrees of freedom we employ Regge’s simplicial discretization, with the scalar fields defined at the vertices of the four-simplices. We examine how the continuous phase transition found earlier, separating the smooth from the rough phase of quantized gravity, is influenced by the presence of scalar matter. A determination of the critical exponents seems to… CONTINUE READING
