TitleFoundations of quantum cosmology
Author(s)Martin Bojowald
PublicationBristol, Institute of Physics Publishing, 2020.
Abstract NoteThis book lays the foundations of quantum cosmology, developing classical cosmology and quantum physics based on general principles without requiring detailed background knowledge in these fields. Throughout the book, the discussion focuses on the physical meaning of space-time—classical or quantum—and on the important requirement of general covariance. Various classical models are derived from this condition and applied to basic questions in cosmology and the physics of black holes. The book's introduction of relevant ingredients from quantum physics makes it possible to derive fundamental features of quantum cosmology, to present the main approaches to quantum gravity, including string theory and causal dynamical triangulations, and to outline some of their cosmological implications. It is an essential guide for researchers in quantum gravity and astrophysicists interested in fundamental aspects of cosmology.

Author(s)Rodolfo Gambini and Jorge Pullin
PublicationOxford, 1. c2011 2. Oxford University Press,
Description1 online resource (viii, 183 p.) : ill
Abstract NoteLoop quantum gravity is one of the modern contenders for a unified description of quantum mechanics and gravity. Up to now no book has covered the material at the level of a college student or of other readers with some knowledge of college level physics. This book fills that gap

TitleStory of collapsing stars: Black Holes, Naked Singularities, and the Cosmic Play of Quantum Gravity
Author(s)Pankaj S. Joshi
PublicationOxford, Oxford University Press, 2015.
Descriptionxiii, 225p.
Abstract NoteThis book journeys into one of the most fascinating intellectual adventures of recent decades - understanding and exploring the final fate of massive collapsing stars in the universe. The issue is of great interest in fundamental physics and cosmology today, from both the perspective of gravitation theory and of modern astrophysical observations. This is a revolution in the making and may be intimately connected to our search for a unified understanding of the basic forces of nature, namely gravity that governs the cosmological universe, and the microscopic forces that include quantum phenomena.

TitleFoundations of quantum gravity
Author(s)James Lindesay
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2013.
Descriptionxi, 406p.
Abstract NoteExploring 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 co-gravitating 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 non-singular 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.

TitleUniverse: A View from Classical and Quantum Gravity
Author(s)Martin Bojowald
PublicationWeinheim, Wiley-VCH Verlag GmBH & Co., 2013.
Descriptionviii, 362p.
Series(Physics textbook)
Abstract NoteWritten by a well-known 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 "two-level" 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 non-experts in related fields with an interest in the subject.

TitleFoundations of space and time: Reflections on quantum gravity
Author(s)Jeff Murugan (Ed.);Amanda Weltman (Ed.);George F. R. Ellis (Ed.)
PublicationCambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012.
Descriptionxiv, 437p.
Abstract Notefter 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 up-to-date view of the field.

TitleNew paths towards quantum gravity
Author(s)Bernhelm Boob-Bavnbek (ed.);Giampiero Esposito (ed.);Matthias Lesch (ed.)
PublicationHeidelberg, Springer, 2010.
Descriptionxix, 359p.
Series(Lecture Notes in Physics)
Abstract NoteThe division of the book in two (overlapping) parts reflects the duality between the physical vision and the mathematical construction. The former is represented by tutorial reviews on non-commutative geometry, on space-time discretization and renormalization and on gauge field path integrals. The latter one by lectures on cohomology, on stochastic geometry and on mathematical tools for the effective action in quantum gravity. The book will benefit everyone working or entering the field of quantum gravity research.
