We've seen a series of QG-related one-or-two-week schools, over the years. This year a Zakopane school was held 28 June thru 7 July in the lead-up to the Warsaw GR20 conference.

Abhay Ashtekar and Eugenio Bianchi each gave a series of lectures. Zakopane lectures are primarily aimed at graduate students interested in starting research in any of the areas covered by that year's school.

The slides PDF for several of the talks are available online.

Lectures by Ashtekar:

A mini-course on:

(Understanding emerged from the work of many researchers, especially:

Agullo, Barrau, Bojowald, Campiglia, Cailleatau, Corichi, Grain, Kaminski, Lewandowski, Mielczarek, Mena, Nelson, Olmedo, Pawlowski, Singh, Sloan, Thiemann, Velhinho, Wilson-Ewing ...)

Lecture 1

The Big Bang Singularity & Loop Quantum Cosmology

1. Introduction: Singularity Resolution?

2. Loop Quantum Cosmology: Basic Results 3. Novel features at the Foundation

Lecture 2

Cosmological Perturbations

1. Classical Perturbation Theory

2. Quantum Fields on classical FLRW Space-times

3. Quantum fields on Quantum FLRW geometries

Lecture 3

An Extension of the Inflationary Scenario to the Planck Regime

1. Success and Limitations of Inflation

2. The LQC Strategy

3. Results: Pre-inflationary dynamics and its implications.
