## Main Question or Discussion Point

several recent papers have cited

Ashtekar and Lewandowski

"Background Independent quantum gravity: a status report"

as in preparation or

as a 2003 preprint not up on arxiv

Does anyone know of a draft version online?

I was reminded of their status report paper when I saw it

as the first reference cited in the new paper (25 February) of

Noui and Perez

"Three dimensional loop quantum gravity: coupling to point particles"

http://arxiv.org/gr-qc/0402111 [Broken]

But I believe it is also cited by Ashtekar and Lewandowski themselves in "Mathematical structure of Loop Quantum Cosmology" gr-qc 0304074

and by Perez in

"Spin Foam Models for Quantum Gravity" gr-qc 0301113

One can get some notion of how A&L present what might serve as a current standard of LQG by reading sections of Noui and Perez where they cite their reference [1] and arrange their form of 1+2 LQG so it will be as compatible and generalizable as possible to the full theory.

Any news of this?
