Recently, the master constraint programme for loop quantum gravity (LQG) was proposed as a classically equivalent way to impose the infinite number of Wheeler–DeWitt constraint equations in terms of a single master equation. While the proposal has some promising abstract features, it was until now barely tested in known models. In this series of five papers we fill this gap, thereby adding confidence to the proposal. We consider a wide range of models with increasingly more complicated…

On the relation between operator constraint, master constraint, reduced phase space and path integral quantization
Path integral formulations for gauge theories must start from the canonical formulation in order to obtain the correct measure. A possible avenue to derive it is to start from the reduced phase space

Quantization of Constrained Systems
TLDR
The quantization of systems with general first- and second-class constraints from the point of view of coherentstate, phase-space path integration is studied, and it is shown that all such cases may be treated by using suitable path-integral measures for the Lagrange multipliers which ensure that the quantum system satisfies the appropriate quantum constraint conditions.
