Baez J.C. (Ed.) Knots and Quantum Gravity (Oxford Lecture Series in Mathematics and Its Applications)
Oxford University Press, 1994. 248 p. ISBN:0198534906

Recent work by mathematicians and physicists has uncovered revelatory connections between knot theory and the problem of developing a quantum theory of gravity. This book, the proceedings of a workshop held to bring together researchers in knot theory and quantum gravity, features a number of expository and research papers that will aid significantly in closing the gap between the two disciplines. It will serve as a guide for mathematicians and physicists seeking to understand this rapidly developing area of research. The book represents a state-of-the-art study of current research and progress. The editor is the author of Gauge Fields, Knots, and Gravity (World Scientific), a graduate level text on the topic.

Oxford University Press, 1992, 230 pages Why is quantum theory so difficult to understand? In this book, written for both undergraduate and graduate students of chemistry and physics, the author looks at the continuing debate about the meaning of quantum theory. The historical development of the theory is traced from the turn of the century through to the 1930s, and the famous debate between Niels Bohr and Albert Einstein. The book examines in...

Cambridge University Press, 2003, 276 pages This timely volume provides a broad survey of (2+l)-dimensional quantum gravity. It emphasises the 'quantum cosmology' of closed universes and the quantum mechanics of the (2+l)-dimensional black hole. It compares and contrasts a variety of approaches, and examines what they imply for a realistic theory of quantum gravity. General relativity in three spacetime dimensions has become a popular arena in...

Springer, 2011, 159 pages 1946 is the year Bryce DeWitt entered Harvard graduate school. Quantum Gravity was his goal and remained his goal throughout his lifetime until the very end. The pursuit of Quantum Gravity requires a profound understanding of Quantum Physics and Gravitation Physics. As G. A. Vilkovisky commented , "Quantum Gravity is a combination of two words, and one should know both. Bryce understood this as nobody else, and this wi...

Draft version,30 December 2003, 347 p. The problem of quantum gravity has many aspects. Ideas and results are scattered in the literature. In this book I have attempted to collect the main results and to present an overall perspective on quantum gravity, as developed during this period. The point of view is personal and the choice of subjects is determined by my own interests.
