This book aims to present a pedagogical and self-consistent treatment of the canonical approach to Quantum Gravity, starting from its original formulation to the most recent developments in the start with an innovative and enlightening introduction to the formalism and concepts on which General Relativity has been built, giving all the information necessary in the later analysis. The Table of Contents for the book is as follows: Foreword. Quantization on the Lattice of Topologies. Loop Representation for Quantum Gravity in 2 + 1 Dimensions. Are Knots Quantum States of Space Time? Canonical 2+1 Dimensional Quantum Gravity. Classical Observables of the Nambu String from the Many-Time Approach.

Volume of Springer-Verlag's Lecture Notes in Physics, Canonical Gravity From Classical to Quantum is the proceedings of a conference held in September R. Geroch, Geometrical Quantum Mechanics, pdf and a link to Rob Salgado's site with the LaTex source. This comprehensive textbook is devoted to classical and quantum cosmology, with particular emphasis on modern approaches to quantum gravity and string theory and on their observational imprint. It covers major challenges in theoretical physics such as the big bang and the cosmological constant problem.

The quantization of Einstein’s version of classical gravity is possible using affine quantization instead of canonical quantization. Canonical quantization can not employ the promotion of classical Cartesian variables, as Dirac requires [ 1 ], because the classical gravity variables of phase space do not contain such variables [ 8 ].

In physics, canonical quantization is a procedure for quantizing a classical theory, while attempting to preserve the formal structure, such as symmetries, of the classical theory, to the greatest extent possible.

Historically, this was not quite Werner Heisenberg's route to obtaining quantum mechanics, but Paul Dirac introduced it in his doctoral thesis, the "method of classical analogy" for quantization, and .Quantum gravity is supposed to be the most fundamental theory, including a quantum theory of the metrical field (spacetime).

However, it is not clear how a quantum theory of gravity could.Canonical Quantum Gravity Canonical quantum gravity (CQG) is a general effort to develop the quantum version of the Hamiltonian formulation of general relativity. In this procedure, one can use different canonical variables.
