An overview of the current status of singularities in classical and quantum gravity, starting with the classical singularity theorems. This suggests possible routes for quantum gravity to evade the devastating conclusion of the theorems ...

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.

This is a (relatively) non-technical summary of the status of the quantum dynamics in Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG). We explain in detail the historical evolution of the subject and why the results obtained so far are non-trivial.

This article reviews the present status of the spin foam approach to the quantization of gravity. Special attention is payed to the pedagogical presentation of the recently introduced new models for four dimensional quantum gravity.
