A first course in loop quantum gravity. [Rodolfo Gambini; Jorge Pullin] -- Loop quantum gravity is one of the modern contenders for a unified description of quantum mechanics and gravity. Up to now no book has covered the material at the level of a college student or of. Briefly after Christmas, I found in my mailbox a copy of Rodolfo Gambini and Jorge Pullin's new book "A First Course in Loop Quantum Gravity" and a note "Sent with compliments of the Editor."It's a lean book with a total of pages, and that includes the index and the references.

' Carlo Rovelli, Aix-Marseille University, France `Loop quantum gravity is currently one of the main approaches in the search for a quantum theory of gravity. Written by well-known experts in this field, "A First Course in Loop Quantum gravity" is the first book on this topic that is accessible already to undergraduates.4/5(25). As well as cosmology, loop quantum gravity can be applied to the study of black holes. Loop quantum gravity is consistent with the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy formula and it predicts a logarithmic quantum correction to the entropy formula. An extension of traditional loop quantum gravity is the path integral formalism, which is based on spinfoams.

Loop quantum gravity (LQG) is a theory of quantum gravity attempting to merge quantum mechanics and general relativity, including the incorporation of the matter of the standard model into the framework established for the pure quantum gravity competes with string theory as a candidate for quantum gravity.. According to Albert Einstein, gravity is not a . A First Course in Loop Quantum Gravity by Rodolfo Gambini and Jorge Pullin, aimed at undergraduate students, marvellously succeeds in starting from the basics of special relativity and covering basic topicsinHamiltoniandynamics,YangMillstheory, general relativity and quantum ﬁeld theory, ending with a tour on current (loop) quantum gravity.

This is a first course on Loop Quantum Gravity. The early chapters give a useful review of classical physics, general relativity, quantum mechanics and quantum field theory. However, once the text gets into LQG, the going gets very tough indeed. Most physics undergrads will struggle with holonomies and Diffeomorphisms.4/5(26).

In particular it is not assumed that the reader is familiar with general relativity and only minimally familiar with quantum mechanics and Hamiltonian : Rodolfo Gambini.

Loop quantum gravity is string theory’s biggest competitor. It gets less press than string theory, in part because it has a fundamentally more limited goal: a quantum theory of gravity. Loop quantum gravity performs this feat by trying to quantize space itself — in other words, treat space like it comes in small chunks.
