Title  Foundations of quantum gravity 
Author(s)  James Lindesay 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013. 
Description  xi, 406p. 
Abstract Note  Exploring how the subtleties of quantum coherence can be consistently incorporated into Einstein's theory of gravitation, this book is ideal for researchers interested in the foundations of relativity and quantum physics. The book examines those properties of coherent gravitating systems that are most closely connected to experimental observations. Examples of consistent cogravitating quantum systems whose overall effects upon the geometry are independent of the coherence state of each constituent are provided, and the properties of the trapping regions of nonsingular black objects, black holes, and a dynamic de Sitter cosmology are discussed analytically, numerically, and diagrammatically. The extensive use of diagrams to summarise the results of the mathematics enables readers to bypass the need for a detailed understanding of the steps involved. Assuming some knowledge of quantum physics and relativity, the book provides textboxes featuring supplementary information for readers particularly interested in the philosophy and foundations of the physics.

Title  Universe: A View from Classical and Quantum Gravity 
Author(s)  Martin Bojowald 
Publication  Weinheim, WileyVCH Verlag GmBH & Co., 2013. 
Description  viii, 362p. 
Series  (Physics textbook) 
Abstract Note  Written by a wellknown author in the field, this book presents a modern understanding of the universe based on relativity, quantum physics and their elusive combination. It introduces the crucial theoretical ingredients in an accessible way, starting from the physics of Newton and developing subsequent theories all the way to the modern enigma of quantum gravity. The intermediate level presentation assumes only a general knowledge of math and physics, adopting a "twolevel" approach: equations are retained throughout the chapters but set apart from the main text in boxes to allow for lay readers to understand the book.For scientists, researchers, students and lecturers in cosmology, astronomy, gravitation, quantum and theoretical physics; as well as mathematicians, students, lecturers, academics and nonexperts in related fields with an interest in the subject.

Title  Foundations of space and time: Reflections on quantum gravity 
Author(s)  Jeff Murugan (Ed.);Amanda Weltman (Ed.);George F. R. Ellis (Ed.) 
Publication  Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012. 
Description  xiv, 437p. 
Abstract Note  fter almost a century, the field of quantum gravity remains as difficult and inspiring as ever. Today, it finds itself a field divided, with two major contenders dominating: string theory, the leading exemplification of the covariant quantization program; and loop quantum gravity, the canonical scheme based on Dirac's constrained Hamiltonian quantization. However, there are now a number of other innovative schemes providing promising new avenues. Encapsulating the latest debates on this topic, this book details the different approaches to understanding the very nature of space and time. It brings together leading researchers in each of these approaches to quantum gravity to explore these competing possibilities in an open way. Its comprehensive coverage explores all the current approaches to solving the problem of quantum gravity, addressing the strengths and weaknesses of each approach, to give researchers and graduate students an uptodate view of the field.
