About this book

The construction of a quantum theory of gravity is the most fundamental challenge confronting contemporary theoretical physics. The different physical ideas which evolved while developing a theory of quantum gravity require highly advanced mathematical methods.

This book presents different mathematical approaches to formulate a theory of quantum gravity. It represents a carefully selected cross-section of lively discussions about the issue of quantum gravity which took place at the second workshop "Mathematical and Physical Aspects of Quantum Gravity" in Blaubeuren, Germany. This collection covers in a unique way aspects of various competing approaches. A unique feature of the book is the presentation of different approaches to quantum gravity making comparison feasible. This feature is supported by an extensive index.

The book is mainly addressed to mathematicians and physicists who are interested in questions related to mathematical physics. It allows the reader to obtain a broad and up-to-date overview on a fascinating active research area.

 

Reviews

From the reviews:

“Presents a selection of contributions presented at the workshop ‘Mathematical and Physical aspects of Quantum Gravity’ … . presentation of various approaches to quantum gravity in one volume is rather unique and provides reader with an opportunity to compare their advantages and disadvantages. A significant advantage of this volume is that the articles are written in a less technical style, focusing only on major theoretical questions, with many contributions being accessible to non-specialists and thus providing a broad overview of this fascinating field of research.” (Vojtěch Pravda, Applications of Mathematics, Vol. 55 (5), 2010)
