**Does this paper prove GR emerge from LQG with matter?**

A common criticism of LQG is that despite intense research, no semiclassical limit has been shown to connect GR with LQG in the low energy limit. And hence, it is not even a candidate theory of quantum gravity.

Emergence of General Relativity from Loop Quantum Gravity

Chun-Yen Lin (University of California at Davis)

7 pages, 2 figures

(Submitted on 3 Dec 2009)

"I show that general relativity emerges from loop quantum gravity, in a relational description of gravitation field in terms of coordinates defined by matter. Local Dirac observables and coherent states are constructed for an explicit evaluation of the dynamics. The dynamics of large scales conforms with general relativity, up to the corrections near singularities."
