C. Kiefer, Quantum Gravity

It looks like a Google search "C. Kiefer, Quantum Gravity" comes up with several links,

So? A google search for almost anything comes up with "several" links. For instance, a google search forIt looks like a Google search "C. Kiefer, Quantum Gravity" comes up with several links,

https://www.google.com/search?q=C.+Kiefer,+Quantum+Gravity&oq=C.+Kiefer,+Quantum+Gravity&aqs=chrome..69i57&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

comes up with "several" links itself.

Maybe you should give us your thesis topic.

It looked like there were two different articles by him with that title, I wondered if you had a preference between the two.

There is a short 15 page review, page 1, cited by 216,

And 21 pages with the same title and more pictures!,

This is what I guess you recommended,

https://global.oup.com/academic/product/quantum-gravity-9780199585205?cc=us&lang=en&

- Accessible introduction to the main approaches to quantum gravity (without bias to a particular approach)
- Suitable starting point for any research in quantum gravity
- Presents a combination of mathematical and conceptual issues
- Assists the reader in recognizing connections between the various approaches
- Technically precise and explicit
- Contains new chapters or sections on quantum gravity phenomenology, Horava-Lifshitz quantum gravity, analogue gravity, the holographic principle, affine quantum gravity, and other topics.
- Presents updates on loop quantum cosmology, the LTB model, asymptotic safety, various discrete approaches, and other topics.
- Contains pedagogical extensions throughout the text.

Good afternoon!

Then perhaps Buchbinder et al may also be relevant for you... when I happened to come across one by Percacci, the latter of which covers a ton of extremely relevant topics from our research, so this is ideal for us
