**Loll's CDT and Assymptotic Safety proven to be directly related.**

The interesting part is this one:

7. Lattice

Lattice implementations for gravity in four dimensions have been put forward based on Regge

calculus techniques [27, 28] and causal dynamical triangulations [29]. [...]

Within the causal dynamical triangulation approach, global aspects of quantum space-times

have been assessed in [29].[...] The key result is that the measured effective dimensionality displays a cross-overfrom d ≈ 4 at large scales to d ≈ 2 at small scales of the order of the Planck scale. This behaviourcompares nicely with the cross-over of the graviton anomalous dimension h under the renormalisationgroup (see Sec. 2), and with renormalisation group studies of the spectral dimension (see

[3, 4, 60]). These findings corroborate the claim that asymptotically safe quantum gravity behaves, in an essential way, two-dimensional at short distances.

I don't know Assymptotic Safety, but now, I really feel motivated to study this since it seems to be an effective bridge between the micro CDT world and our macroscopic world.

:rofl: That's A HUGE FINDING!!!!!!!! Great!!!!

PS.: It seems that the Lattice approach is the right one!!! :surprised :surprised
