PERIMETER INSTITUTE RECORDED SEMINAR ARCHIVE

Ashtekar variables and shape dynamics
Speaker(s): Tim Koslowski
Abstract: I discuss the construction of Shape Dynamics in Ashtekar variables and related canonical formulations. The local constraints are free of the Immirzi parameter but global dynamics is not. I discuss loop quantization of Shape Dynamics kinematics and give a proposal for the construction of a Hamiltonian.
