Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews:

“Presents a selection of contributions presented at the workshop ‘Mathematical and Physical aspects of Quantum Gravity’ … . presentation of various approaches to quantum gravity in one volume is rather unique and provides reader with an opportunity to compare their advantages and disadvantages. A significant advantage of this volume is that the articles are written in a less technical style, focusing only on major theoretical questions, with many contributions being accessible to non-specialists and thus providing a broad overview of this fascinating field of research.” (Vojtěch Pravda, Applications of Mathematics, Vol. 55 (5), 2010)
