Christopher Isham is a theoretical physicist at Imperial College London. where he is a Distinguished Research Fellow of the Faculty of Natural Sciences, in the Department of Physics. His main research interests are quantum gravity and foundational studies in quantum theory. Quantum quandaries: a category theory perspective, in Structural Foundations of Quantum Gravity, (ed. S. French et al.) Oxford Univ. Press. ↑ J. Baez. Categorified Gauge Theory. in Proceedings of the Pacific Northwest Geometry Seminar Cascade Topology Seminar,Spring Meeting--May 11 University of Washington.

In this manner, this book is situated at the crossroads between the foundations of mathematical analysis with a view toward differential geometry and the foundations of theoretical physics with a view toward quantum mechanics and quantum gravity. One appealing feature of string theory is that it provides a theory of quantum gravity. Gravity and Strings is a self-contained, pedagogical exposition of this theory, its foundations and its basic results. In Part I, the foundations are traced back to the very early special-relativistic field theories of gravity, showing how such theories lead to general relativity.5/5(3).

Abstract. The quest for a theory of quantum gravity is usually understood to be driven by philosophical assumptions external to physics proper. It is suspected that specifically approaches in the context of particle physics are rather based on metaphysical premises than experimental data or Cited by: 1. Categorical quantum mechanics is the study of quantum foundations and quantum information using paradigms from mathematics and computer science, notably monoidal category primitive objects of study are physical processes, and the different ways that these can be was pioneered in by Samson Abramsky and Bob Coecke.

Quantum gravity is the name given to a theory that unites general relativity — Einstein's theory of gravitation and spacetime — with quantum field theory, our framework for describing non-gravitational forces. This book brings together philosophers and physicists to discuss a range of conceptual issues that surface in the effort to unite these theories, focusing in particular on the.
