**Emergent Models for Gravity: an overview**

by L. Sindoni

**Publisher**: arXiv 2011**Number of pages**: 54

**Description**:

We give a critical overview of various attempts to describe gravity as an emergent phenomenon, starting from examples of condensed matter physics, to arrive to more sophisticated pregeometric models. The common line of thought is to view the graviton as a composite particle/collective mode. However, we will describe many different ways in which this idea is realized in practice.

**arXiv**

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.
