**New Paths Towards Quantum Gravity**

by B. Booss-Bavnbek, G. Esposito, M. Lesch

**Publisher**: Springer 2010**ISBN/ASIN**: 3642118968**ISBN-13**: 9783642118968**Number of pages**: 380

**Description**:

The division of the book in two parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. The former is represented by tutorial reviews on non-commutative geometry, on space-time discretization and renormalization and on gauge field path integrals. The latter one by lectures on cohomology, on stochastic geometry and on mathematical tools for the effective action in quantum gravity.
