A First Course in Loop Quantum Gravity by Rodolfo Gambini,Jorge Pullin

By Rodolfo Gambini,Jorge Pullin

This publication presents an obtainable advent to loop quantum gravity and a few of its purposes, at a degree compatible for undergraduate scholars and others with just a minimum wisdom of school point physics. specifically it isn't assumed that the reader knows basic relativity and simply minimally conversant in quantum mechanics and Hamiltonian mechanics. so much chapters finish with difficulties that complicated at the textual content, and relief studying. functions such
as loop quantum cosmology, black gap entropy and spin foams are in brief coated. The textual content is excellent for an undergraduate direction within the senior yr of a physics significant. it could even be used to introduce undergraduates to basic relativity and quantum box concept as a part of a 'special topics'
type of course.
