# Spin network wavefunction and nonperturbative graviton propagator

@article{Mikovi2007SpinNW, title={Spin network wavefunction and nonperturbative graviton propagator}, author={A Mikovi{\'c}}, journal={Fortschritte der Physik}, year={2007}, volume={56} }

We show that if the flat‐spacetime wavefunction in the spin network basis of Loop Quantum Gravity has a large‐spin asymptotics given by a Gaussian function, then the corresponding graviton propagator has the correct large‐distance asymptotics nonperturbatively in the equal‐time limit.
