Loop quantum gravity: Four recent advances and a dozen frequently asked questions

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

As per organizers' request, my talk at the 11th Marcel Grossmann Conference consisted of two parts. In the first I illustrated recent advances in loop quantum gravity through examples. In the second, I presented an overall assessment of the status of the program by addressing some frequently asked questions. This account is addressed primarily to researchers outside the loop quantum gravity community.
