Loops, knots, gauge theories, and quantum gravity by Rodolfo Gambini( Book )

27 editions published between 1996 and 2009 in English and Spanish and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This text provides a self-contained introduction to applications of loop representations and knot theory in particle physics and quantum gravity." "Loop representations (and the related topic of knot theory) are of considerable current interest because they provide a unified arena for the study of the gauge invariant quantization of Yang-Mills theories and gravity, and suggest a promising approach to the eventual unification of the four fundamental forces. This text begins with a review of calculus in loop space and the fundamentals of loop representations. It then goes on to describe loop representations in Maxwell theory, Yang-Mills theories as well as lattice techniques. Applications in quantum gravity are then discussed in detail. Following chapters move on to consider knot theory, the braid algebra and extended loop representations in quantum gravity. A final chapter assesses the current status of the theory and points out possible directions for future research." "This self-contained introduction will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics and applied mathematics."--Jacket
A first course in loop quantum gravity by Rodolfo Gambini( Book )

30 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in 4 languages and held by 191 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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 other readers with some knowledge of college level physics. This book fills that gap
Loop quantum gravity : the first 30 years( Book )

1 edition published in 2016 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Over the last decade, several important advances have occurred, that include the continuum and classical limit of the non-perturbative theory on the conceptual side, and concrete ideas on confronting quantum gravity with observations in cosmology. This volume takes the reader from basics to recent advances, thereby bridging an important gap. It presents a snapshot of the state-of-the-art in loop quantum gravity from the perspective of young leading researchers. The goal is two-fold: to provide a contemporary introduction to the entire field for students and post-docs and, an overview of the current status for more senior researchers. These overviews present the latest developments that are not discussed in existing books, particularly the applications to the cosmology of the early universe and quantum aspects of black holes"--

Evaluation of the Performance during the GSE Technical Test( Book )

1 edition published in 1986 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Continuing evaluations of the Center's performance during the GSE Technical Test led to improvements in the automatic association program and verified that the automatic signal detector flagged all expected seismic P-waves. Research on methods for the analysis of seismic data resulted in demonstration of promising methods for identifying pp by polarization filtering and a correlation method. Polarization filtering was applied to two events near the Aral Sea and helped determine that complications in the signals at NORESS were not due to a multiple explosive source. Another investigation of regional events recorded at NORESS revealed spectral differences that could be used to discriminate between earthquakes and explosions in a limited source region. Network capability studies demonstrated agreement between SNAP/D estimates and results from a network in the Baykal region, as well as possible effects of source radiation patterns on station detection thresholds. Analysis of explosion generated and synthetic waveforms showed that waveform periods and shapes can be used to constrain estimates of t*, and illustrated the strong dependence of t* estimates on assumptions about near-source conditions.
