Description

In this talk we give a brief review on the conceptual and mathematical framework underlying loop quantum gravity with a focus on its dynamics encoded in the so called quantum Einstein equations. We will discuss how the notion of Dirac observables in the context of general relativity can be used to derive a reduced phase space quantization for loop quantum gravity. Furthermore, we explain how the quantum Einstein equations can be formulated in this context and discuss some recent progress and results.
