**Kristina Giesel talk Thursday**

On Thursday 7 September Kristina Giesel gives a seminar talk on topic TBA.

I was in a rush earlier and screwed up. I confused Kristina Giesel with someone else and wrote the wrong first name.

Now I have to start at square one with this.

All I know about K. Giesel is her collaboration with TT on a halfdozen papers

http://arxiv.org/find/gr-qc/1/au:+Giesel_K/0/1/0/all/0/1

1. gr-qc/0607101 [abs, ps, pdf, other] :

2. gr-qc/0607100 [abs, ps, pdf, other] :

5. gr-qc/0507036 [abs, ps, pdf, other] :

Title: Consistency Check on Volume and Triad Operator Quantisation in Loop Quantum Gravity I

Authors: Kristina Giesel, Thomas Thiemann

Comments: 21 pages, 5 figures

so I guess the upcoming seminar talk at Perimeter is part of the ongoing

Thiemannssaga. A heroic or semiheroic story like the Icelandic Gislasaga (which has parts where one feels a bit faint).

Actually the old story is a pretty good one. We'll see how the modern story turns out.
