Editorial Reviews

Review

`Review from previous edition This book maintains a high level of clarity throughout, and is written with admirable patience. It will be found very useful by a beginning researcher in quantum gravity who wants to have a comprehensive overview of the subject. Equally well, senior researchers in the field will find it a handy reference for standard analyses of various aspects of the subject.' General Relativity and Gravitation

`... a clear exposition of the fundamental concepts of gravity... an extensive review of the subject.' Journal of Classical and Quantum Gravity

`... suitable for the expert who wants an overview of the state-of-the-art, as well as the novice looking for an introduction to one of the most spellbinding subjects in theoretical physics today.' Physik-Journal

From the Back Cover

The relation between quantum theory and the theory of gravitation remains one of the most outstanding unresolved issues of modern physics. According to general expectation, general relativity as well as quantum (field) theory in a fixed background spacetime cannot be fundamentally correct. Hence there should exist a broader theory comprising both in appropriate limits, i.e., quantum gravity. This book gives readers a comprehensive introduction accessible to interested non-experts to the main issues surrounding the search for quantum gravity. These issues relate to fundamental questions concerning the various formalisms of quantization; specific questions concerning concrete processes, like gravitational collapse or black-hole evaporation; and the all important question concerning the possibility of experimental tests of quantum-gravity effects.
