Quantum Space takes a look at a less written about physical theory trying to tie together general relativity with quantum mechanics called Loop Quantum Gravity. As a field with a few key pioneers the author spends most of the book following the careers of three men, Smolin, Ashketar and Rovelli, with a focus on Smolin and Rovelli/5(61).

Quantum structure of space and time: proceedings of the Nuffield Workshop, Imperial College, London, August, [M J Duff; C J Isham;] -- This book consists of selected contributions presented at the Nuffield Quantum Gravity Workshop held at Imperial College, London, in August The book is divided into three parts which correspond.

familiar from quantum mechanics but interpreted in this context as coordinates of a quantum space or spacetime. These relations were proposed by Roger Penrose in his earliest spin network theory of space. It is a toy model of quantum gravity in 3 spacetime dimensions (not the physical 4) with a Euclidean (not the physical Minkowskian) signature.

Both theories are, according to Jim Baggott, “extraordinarily successful”. The problem, as he outlines in the preface to ‘Quantum Space: Loop Quantum Gravity and the Search for the Structure of Space, Time and the Universe’ (Oxford University Press, £20, ISBN ), is that they are mutually incompatible. Product Information. This is an account of loop quantum gravity, a major approach towards that goal. It's a story of strange, grand, breathtaking ideas concerning the emergence of space, time, and the structure of the universe.

Summary. A fascinating and deep question about nature is what happens if one probes space and time at smaller and smaller distances. Already the 19th-century founders of modern geometry contemplated the possibility that a piece of empty space that looks completely smooth and structureless to the naked eye might have an intricate microstructure at a much smaller scale.

Impressive progress in quantum field theory had been made since the last school in Much of it is connected with the interplay of quantum theory and the structure of space time, including canonical gravity, black holes, string theory, application of noncommutative differential geometry, and quantum.

Quantum Space: Loop Quantum Gravity and the Search for the Structure of Space, Time, and the Universe by Jim Baggott. Today we are blessed with two extraordinarily successful theories of physics.

The first is Albert Einstein's general theory of relativity, which describes the large-scale behaviour of matter in a curved spacetime. Starting from quantum theory (instead of general relativity) to approach quantum gravity within a minimal setting allows us here to describe the quantum space-time structure and the quantum light cone.

The ﬁrst is to show that the structure of space essentially determines the dynamics of space, which in turn determines the physcial properties File Size: KB.
