Loop Quantum Gravity and the Search for the Structure of Space, Time, and the Universe

Jim Baggott

  • A fascinating discussion of the quest to resolve one of the great unanswered problems of modern physics - how can general relativity and quantum mechanics be compatible
  • Presents the concept of Loop Quantum Gravity, showing how this explanation could be preferable to the much better-known String Theory
  • One of the first explanations of Loop Quantum Gravity for general readers
  • Draws on the pioneering work of Lee Smolin and Carlo Rovelli
  • Written by Jim Baggott, author of the highly successful Higgs (2013) and The Quantum Story (2013)
