Abstract

I offer a personal perspective on the causal dynamical triangulations approach to the construction of quantum theories of gravity. After briefly introducing the approach's formalism and results, I illuminate this perspective with 3+1 vignettes of recent and ongoing research. Specifically, I review attempts to locate an ultraviolet fixed point through renormalization group analyses; I report measurements of the homogeneity of the approach's quantum geometries; I discuss efforts to determine the large scale effective action in the case of 2+1 dimensions; and I suggest a speculative possibility for reviving the Euclidean dynamical triangulations approach.
