What is the idea behind Group Field Theory by Oriti?

  1. Oct 12, 2008 #1
    In plain English, what is the idea behind Group Field Theory by Oriti? How does this involve LQG, SF, and CDT?

    There is not a popular exposition on the subject nor even a wiki article.


    thanks

    As it's told by the name, it's quantum field theory where the variables are group elements. It could be thought as a generalization of spinfoam for whatever group (spinfoam is constructed on SO(4) ) and I think the best reference could be the article by Daniele
    arXiv:gr-qc/0607032
    The group field theory approach to quantum gravity
    Daniele Oriti
    Comments: 17 pages, 2 figures; expanded version of a contribution to "Approaches to Quantum Gravity - toward a new understanding of space, time, and matter"

    Cheers, F
