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.

This book presents a series of selected chapters written by renowned authors. Each chapter treats gravity and its quantization through known and alternative techniques, aiming a deeper understanding on the quantum nature of gravity.

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.

This is an introduction to canonical quantum general relativity, an attempt to define a mathematically rigorous, non-perturbative, background independent theory of Lorentzian quantum gravity in four spacetime dimensions in the continuum.

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.
