Abstract

The handling of the constraints on initial data is a major issue in most canonical formulations of general relativity. Since the 1960s unconstrained initial data for GR that living on null hypersurfaces has been known, but no canoncial formulation based on these data was developed due to conceptual and technical difficulties. I will explain how these dificulties have been overcome and outline the resulting canonical framework. I will also explain how this might be the ideal setting to attempt a proof of the Bousso entropy bound, or to incorporate the associated holographic principle in a quantization of gravity.
