**An Introduction to Quantum Gravity**

by Bryce S. DeWitt, Giampiero Esposito

**Publisher**: arXiv 2007**Number of pages**: 68

**Description**:

The reader is introduced, in a pedagogical way, to the functional integral quantization of gravitation and Yang-Mills theory. It is hoped that such a paper will remain useful for all lecturers or Ph.D. students who face the task of introducing (resp. learning) some basic concepts in quantum gravity in a relatively short time.
