Abstract

A quantum theory of gravity implies a quantum theory of geometries. To this end we will introduce different phases spaces and choices for the space of discretized geometries. These are derived through a canonical analysis of simplicity constraints - which are central for spin foam models - and gluing constraints. We will discuss implications for spin foam models and map out how to obtain a path integral quantization starting from a canonical quantization.
