Hi marcus!

It seems to me that there are many different approaches, from around the world, that are converging at an accelerated pace.

Maybe not? … It might just be my desire to understand minimum length.

The Quantum Configuration Space of Loop Quantum Cosmology

Polymer and Fock representations for a scalar field

Abhay Ashtekar, Jerzy Lewandowski and Hanno Sahlmann

11 Dec 2002

“Our choices will ensure that the polymer scalar field can `live' on quantum geometry.”

I also skimmed the thread “Ashtekar's "Shadow states" paper”

-----------------

Well … it’s not called the QMLS.

Can someone draw a figure of what they think it looks like. A polymer representation on a line with triads in a 3d configuration, (a lattice). All that come to my mind is a funny looking torus which I labeled “void” with the triads making the dual tetra.

The Quantum Configuration Space of Loop Quantum Cosmology

I even looked up the following to try to get a better idea of what is happening.abstract

The article gives an account of several aspects of the space known as the Bohr compactification of the line, featuring as the quantum configuration space in loop quantum cosmology, as well as of the corresponding configuration space realization of the so-called polymer representation. Analogies with loop quantum gravity are explored, providing an introduction to (part of) the mathematical structure of loop quantum gravity, in a technically simpler context.
