Publisher: arXiv
Number of pages: 58

Description:
This is a (relatively) non-technical summary of the status of the quantum dynamics in Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG). We explain in detail the historical evolution of the subject and why the results obtained so far are non-trivial.

Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose put forward their related but rather different viewpoints on the nature of space and time. They discuss their different approaches. A basic knowledge of general relativity and quantum theory is assumed.

Book cover: Quantum Physics, Relativity, and Complex SpacetimeQuantum Physics, Relativity, and Complex Spacetime
by - University of Massachusetts at Lowell
A new synthesis of the principles of quantum mechanics and Relativity is proposed in the context of complex differential geometry. The positivity of the energy implies that wave functions and fields can be extended to complex spacetime.
