11-15 July 2022
Loops ’22 Summer School on loop quantum gravity, black hole physics and general relativity at the Luminy Campus, Marseille organized by the Quantum Gravity teams of the CPT Marseille and the ENS Lyon.
The school covers the basics of Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) and related topics, with pedagogical introductions to some of the current research directions. The lectures will introduce spin network states, the canonical and spin foam approaches to the quantum dynamics, applications to the early universe and black holes, quantum information techniques for quantum gravity, numerical methods and possible numerical lab experiments on quantum superposition of geometries.
The school aims to introduce these sparkling and vibrant research topics. It is open to both students and researchers with no a priori background in background independent quantum gravity, and to those who know already the basics and want to be brought up to date.
The school is followed by the Loops ’22 conference on Loop Quantum Gravity at the ENS Lyon.
The school is supported by the Quantum Information Structure of Spacetime (QISS) consortium.
