Summary:
"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  Read more...

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\"--<\/span>\"@en<\/a> ;\u00A0\u00A0\u00A0schema:description<\/a> \"An overview \/ Abhay Ashtekar and Jorge Pullin -- Quantum geometry \/ Kristina Giesel -- Quantum dynamics \/ Alok Laddha and Madhavan Varadarajan -- Spinfoam gravity \/ Eugenio Bianchi -- Group field theory \/ D.
