**Description**:

The unification between gravity and quantum field theory is one of the major problems in contemporary fundamental Physics. 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.
