Higher dimensional and supersymmetric extensions of loop quantum gravity
In this work, we extend loop quantum gravity (LQG) both, to higher dimensions and supersymmetry (i.e. supergravity theories), thus overcoming the current limitation to 3+1 dimensions with standard
A note on quantum supergravity and AdS/CFT
We note that the non-perturbative quantisation of supergravity as recently investigated using loop quantum gravity techniques provides an opportunity to probe an interesting sector of the AdS/CFT
Toward black hole entropy in chiral loop quantum supergravity
Recently, many geometric aspects of N -extended AdS supergravity in chiral variables have been encountered and clarified. In particular, if the theory is supposed to be invariant under SUSY
Supersymmetric minisuperspace models in loop quantum cosmology
In this paper, we study a class of symmetry reduced models of $\mathcal{N}=1$ supergravity using self-dual variables. It is based on a particular Ansatz for the gravitino field as proposed by D'Eath
Supersymmetric minisuperspace models in self-dual loop quantum cosmology
Abstract In this paper, we study a class of symmetry reduced models of $$ \mathcal{N} $$ N = 1 super- gravity using self-dual variables. It is based on a particular Ansatz for the gravitino field
2 CFT correlators from classical Kasner metrics
The classical gravity approximation is often employed in AdS/CFT to study the dual field theory, as it allows for many computations. A drawback is however the generic presence of singularities in
Dynamics in canonical models of loop quantum gravity
Loop quantum gravity is a tentative but relatively well-developed attempt at a manifestly background independent theory of quantum gravity. The kinematical structure of loop quantum gravity is well
Chiral loop quantum supergravity and black hole entropy
Recent work has shown that local supersymmetry on a spacetime boundary in N -extended AdS supergravity in chiral variables implies coupling to a boundary OSp( N| 2) C super Chern-Simons theory. We
Loop Quantum Gravity
This article presents an "in-a-nutshell" yet self-contained introductory review on loop quantum gravity (LQG) -- a background-independent, nonperturbative approach to a consistent quantum theory of
Dynamics in Canonical Models of Loop Quantum Gravity
In this thesis we consider the problem of dynamics in canonical loop quantum gravity, primarily in the context of deparametrized models, in which a scalar field is taken as a physical time variable

New variables for classical and quantum (super)-gravity in all dimensions
Supergravity was originally introduced in the hope of finding a theory of gravity without the shortcoming of perturbative non-renormalisability. Although this goal does not seem to have been reached
Towards loop quantum supergravity (LQSG): II. p-form sector
In our companion paper, we focused on the quantization of the Rarita–Schwinger sector of supergravity theories in various dimensions by using an extension of loop quantum gravity to all spacetime
Towards loop quantum supergravity (LQSG): I. Rarita–Schwinger sector
In our companion papers, we managed to derive a connection formulation of Lorentzian general relativity in D + 1 dimensions with compact gauge group SO(D + 1) such that the connection is
QSD V : Quantum Gravity as the Natural Regulator 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
Modern Canonical Quantum General Relativity
The open problem of constructing a consistent and experimentally tested quantum theory of the gravitational field has its place at the heart of fundamental physics. The main approaches can be roughly

Actions for gravity, with generalizations: A Review
The search for a theory of quantum gravity has for a long time been almost fruitless. A few years ago, however, Ashtekar found a reformulation of Hamiltonian gravity, which thereafter has given rise
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
What is the simplest quantum field theory?
Conventional wisdom says that the simpler the Lagrangian of a theory the simpler its perturbation theory. An ever-increasing understanding of the structure of scattering amplitudes has however been
Representations of the holonomy algebras of gravity and nonAbelian gauge theories
Holonomy algebras arise naturally in the classical description of Yang-Mills fields and gravity, and it has been suggested, at a heuristic level, that they may also play an important role in a
