Introduction
Prof. Dr. Thomas Thiemann
Albert Einstein Institute, Golm/Potsdam

Note on the lectures by Prof. Thomas Thiemann on Quantum Gravity:

Professor Thiemann, the author of a comprehensive monograph on quantum gravity, will give the series of four lectures at ITF. In the first, he will present a general overview and motivation. The following lectures (starting at 13:10 on March 13 and at 10:00 and 13:10 on March 20), will be more technical.

Materials from the lectures can be found at http://utf.mff.cuni.cz/seminare/texty/Thiemann.

Note on the lectures by Prof. Thomas Thiemann on Quantum Gravity:

Professor Thiemann, the author of a comprehensive monograph on quantum gravity, will give the series of four lectures at ITF.

In this lecture he will adress the question of time and quantum observables in quantum gravity. The following lectures, starting at 13:10, will be more technical.

Materials from the lectures can be found at http://utf.mff.cuni.cz/seminare/texty/Thiemann.
