Canonical Transformations in Quantum Mechanics
by Arlen Anderson
Publisher: arXiv 1993
Number of pages: 43
Quantum canonical transformations are defined algebraically outside of a Hilbert space context. This generalizes the quantum canonical transformations of Weyl and Dirac to include non-unitary transformations. The importance of non-unitary transformations for constructing solutions of the Schroedinger equation is discussed.

An introduction to loop quantum gravity is given, focussing on the fundamental aspects of the theory, different approaches to the dynamics, as well as possible future directions. It is structured in five lectures, including exercises.

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.

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.

We give a pedagogical introduction to the basic ideas and concepts of the Asymptotic Safety program in Quantum Einstein Gravity. Using the continuum approach based upon the effective average action, we summarize the state of the art of the field.
