Spin Foam Models for Quantum Gravity
by Alejandro Perez
Publisher: arXiv 2003
Number of pages: 80
In this article we review the present status of the spin foam formulation of non-perturbative (background independent) quantum gravity. In the first part we present a general introduction to the main ideas emphasizing their motivations from various perspectives.

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 intention of this book is to dig deep in the first principles of physics and develop a relativistic quantum theory from scratch. By this, I mean a theory for the so-called elementary particles which constitute building blocks of nature ...

The division of the book in two (overlapping) parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. This book will benefit everyone working or entering the field of quantum gravity research.

Stephen Hawking and Roger Penrose put forward their related but rather different viewpoints on the nature of space and time. They discuss their different approaches. A basic knowledge of general relativity and quantum theory is assumed.
