T1 - Introduction to loop quantum gravity and cosmology

AU - Ashtekar, Abhay

N1 - Funding Information:
My understanding of classical and quantum gravity has deepened through discussions with a large number of colleagues. Much of this overview is taken from the somewhat more detailed review article in the Proceedings of the Third School on Quantum Geometry and Quantum Gravity, Pos/QGQG2011-001. I would like to thank Miguel Campiglia, Kristina Giesel, Alok Laddha and especially Carlo Rovelli for their comments on the manuscript. This work was supported in part by the European Science Foundation through its network Quantum Geometry and Quantum Gravity, NSF grant PHY 1205388 and the Eberly research funds of The Pennsylvania State University.

N2 - The goal of the lecture is to present a broad perspective on loop quantum gravity and cosmology for young researchers which would serve as an introduction to lectures by Rovelli and Bojowald. The first part is addressed to beginning students and the second to young researchers who are already working in quantum gravity.
