LQG research is having what looks like a "heyday". A rush of papers that fit the various pieces of the puzzle together. See what you think. One sign is the series of papers this year from just one author and collaborators.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

(PF posters who are more on the inside of the LQG program---having published papers related to these---may want to comment from a different perspective. This is a look from the outside.)

Loops 2011 conference will be in Madrid. I suppose that will be where all this development is displayed in some sort of order and we will see what has been accomplished. Right now it is difficult to integrate into a clear picture.
