A brief introduction to loop quantum gravity’s spin networks and quanta of space
Indicative program for an introductory course to loop quantum gravity.
Individual lectures: 90 minutes.
Recommended background: classical general relativity, Hamiltonian structure of gauge theories, basics of group representation theory, quantum field theory.
Information about lectures:
The course contains ten lectures given by Prof. Speziale. The lectures took place in the period October 31st – November 11th. The lectures were given in English.
Enrolled students will prepare a short review of a given topic to obtain credits for the course. They will present these reviews during 1-2 additional seminars, which will take place at the beginning of the summer semester.
Students should enroll for the lecture in the summer semester.
The initial meeting for scheduling the seminars (and announcing the available topics) will take place on Tuesday 14.2. at 13:10 in the seminar room A1032UTF of the Institute of Theoretical Physics. For additional info contact firstname.lastname@example.org
