"... We describe the basic assumptions and key results of loop quantum gravity, which is a background independent approach to quantum gravity. The emphasis is on the basic physical principles and how one deduces predictions from them, at a level suitable for physicists in other areas such as string theor ..."

"... A procedure for obtaining correlation function densities and wavefunctionals for quantum gravity from the Donaldson polynomial invariants of topological quantum field theories, is given. We illustrate how our procedure may be applied to three and four dimensional quantum gravity. Detailed expression ..."

Discreteness of area and volume in quantum gravity
, 2008
"... We study the operator that corresponds to the measurement of volume, in nonperturbative quantum gravity, and we compute its spectrum. The operator is constructed in the loop representation, via a regularization procedure; it is finite, background independent, and diffeomorphisminvariant, and there ..."

"... Upon using some special example in the homogeneous cosmological model we develop the idea that, as a result of the arbitrariness of the factor ordering in WheelerDeWitt equation, gauge phases can not, in general, being completely removed from the wave functional in quantum gravity. The latter may b ..."

Relativistic Spin Networks and Quantum Gravity
 J. Math Phys
, 1998
"... Abstract. Relativistic spin networks are defined by considering the spin covering of the group SO(4), SU(2) × SU(2). Relativistic quantum spins are related to the geometry of the 2dimensional faces of a 4simplex. This extends the idea of Ponzano and Regge that SU(2) spins are related to the geome ..."

to the geometry of the edges of a 3simplex. This leads us to suggest that there may be a 4dimensional state sum model for quantum gravity based on relativistic spin networks which parallels the construction of 3dimensional quantum gravity from ordinary spin networks.
