Hamiltonian of General Relativity

  1. Jul 18, 2015 #1
    Pretty straightforward question. The Einstein-Hilbert Action says that the Lagrangian for Gravity is ##L=R(-g)^{1/2}## where ##g## is the determinant of the Metric Tensor and ##R## is the Ricci Scalar (Actually I am not sure if the determinant of the metric should be included there). From this is it possible to find a Hamiltonian for General Relativity?
