this week's lectures (#15 and 16) are the Hamiltonian quantization(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

and the area/volume operators

next week's (#17 and 18) are quantum Hamiltonian dynamics

the natural next topic after that is PATH INTEGRAL dynamics which in this context is called spinfoams----in which area Daniele Oriti is an expert. It turns out Oriti will be visiting PI around that time and he will give Lecture #19 and maybe #20

that will be on 29 March, when Oriti will stand in for Smolin in teaching the Introduction to QG course.

Today (16 march) Oriti is giving a seminar talk at PI

http://perimeterinstitute.com/activities/scientific/seminarseries/alltalks.cfm?CurrentPage=1&SeminarID=704 [Broken]

A generalized Group Field Theory formalism: quantum gravity transition amplitudes and causality at the Planck scale

maybe it will be put online at the PI streamer site
