 Summary

The search for a quantum theory of the gravitational field is one of the great open problems in theoretical physics. This book presents a selfcontained discussion of the concepts, methods and applications that can be expected in such a theory. The two main approaches to its construction  the direct quantisation of Einstein's general theory of relativity and string theory  are covered. Whereas the first attempts to construct a viable theory for the gravitational field alone, string theory assumes that a quantum theory of gravity will be achieved only through a unification of all the interactions. However, both employ the general method of quantization of constrained systems, which is described together with illustrative examples relevant for quantum gravity. There is a detailed presentation of the main approaches employed in quantum general relativity: pathintegral quantization, the backgroundfield method and canonical quantum gravity in the metric, connection and loop formulations. The discussion of string theory centres around its quantumgravitational aspects and the comparison with quantum general relativity. Physical applications discussed at length include the quantization of black holes, quantum cosmology, the indications of a discrete structure of spacetime, and the origin of irreversibility. The second edition will add some sections on topical issues. These include loop quantum cosmology, dynamical triangulation, renormalizationgroup approach, primordial black holes, and informationloss problem for black holes. The second edition will also contain some pedagogical extensions. This book will be of interest to researchers and students working in relativity and gravitation, cosmology, quantum field theory and related topics. It will also be of interest to mathematicians and philosophers of science.
