Abstract:

Loop Quantum Gravity is a promising theory of non-perturbative quantum gravity. It is also a theory of quantum space and time. In this talk, the motivations, ideas, and concepts in Loop Quantum Gravity will be introduced in a non-technical language. The properties and consequences of quantum spacetime geometry will be introduced. Some of the main results and open issues will be reviewed in the end.
