9780198534907: Knots and Quantum Gravity (Oxford Lecture Series in Mathematics and Its Applications)

Recent work by mathematicians and physicists has uncovered revelatory connections between knot theory and the problem of developing a quantum theory of gravity. This book, the proceedings of a workshop held to bring together researchers in knot theory and quantum gravity, features a number of expository and research papers that will aid significantly in closing the gap between the two disciplines. It will serve as a guide for mathematicians and physicists seeking to understand this rapidly developing area of research. The book represents a state-of-the-art study of current research and progress. The editor is the author of Gauge Fields, Knots, and Gravity (World Scientific), a graduate level text on the topic.

Review:

`....it may be effectively used as a bridge for a researcher from one field to discover ties to another.'
Class. Quantum Grav., No. 12, 1995

`This book is, however, best treated as a reference. Because of the breadth of topics addressed and the emphasis on connections and relationships, it may be effectively used as a bridge for a researcher from one field to discover ties to another.'
Class. Quantum Grav., No. 12, 1995

`John Baez has put together an extremely interesting and timely book which brings into focus a bubbling emerging subject...The volume communicates the atmosphere of excitement and enthusiasm in the field. I heartily recommend this book to everybody working in the search for the next step [in]
our understanding of the physical world at the fundamental level.'
General Relativity and Gravitation, Vol. 27, No. 1, 1995
