An Elementary Introduction to Loop Quantum Gravity
by Norbert Bodendorfer
Publisher: arXiv 2016
Number of pages: 62
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, and requires only little prior knowledge of quantum mechanics, gauge theory, and general relativity.

Quantum canonical transformations are defined algebraically. This generalizes the quantum canonical transformations to include non-unitary transformations. Their importance for constructing solutions of the Schroedinger equation is discussed.
