Generally Covariant Quantum Theory
by Johan Noldus
Publisher: viXra 2016
Number of pages: 218
The intention of this book is to dig deep in the first principles of physics and develop, what is known as, a relativistic quantum theory from scratch. By this, I mean a theory for the so-called elementary particles which constitute building blocks of nature which cannot, by hypothesis, be subdivided themselves into smaller parts.

An overview of attempts to describe gravity as an emergent phenomenon, starting from condensed matter physics to more sophisticated pregeometric models. The common line of thought is to view the graviton as a composite particle/collective moode.
by Kristina Giesel, Hanno Sahlmann - arXiv
An introduction to the canonical quantization of gravity performed in loop quantum gravity. A special feature of this introduction is the inclusion of new proposals for coupling matter to gravity that can be used to deparametrize the theory.

This is an introduction to canonical quantum general relativity, an attempt to define a mathematically rigorous, non-perturbative, background independent theory of Lorentzian quantum gravity in four spacetime dimensions in the continuum.

The reader is introduced to the functional integral quantization of gravitation and Yang-Mills theory. The text is useful for all Ph.D. students who face the task of learning some basic concepts in quantum gravity in a relatively short time.
