Second quantization in ashtekar variable

  1. Dec 22, 2008 #1
    I am searching material in second quantization in ashtekar-like formulation gravity.
    Somebody knows something like that?
    thanks

    Are you familiar with loop quantum gravity? If not, this is probably what you should search instead.

    what i can understand is that lqg is a first quantization theory, isn't it?

    No, it is a quantum field theory. However, this method of quantization does not contain a notion of gravitons, so you may say that this quantum field theory cannot be viewed as a second quantization of gravitons, but only as a first quantization of gravitational fields.
