Home: Gravity/Gauge Gravity and Quantization

This site proffers the posthumously assembled work of George Stephen Karatheodoris (10/03/1974 – 9/22/2012), theoretical physicist interested in generalized gauge gravity and quantization. His death was untimely, his generosity and creativity for a field he loved, expansive. He was strongly committed to the open sharing of his work among colleagues. The the joy it gave him to share, collaborate and discuss physics with others, has inspired the creation of this site to share his ideas, as we believe he would have wanted.

George Karatheodoris at work shortly before his death. Below, in An Algebraic Approach to Gauge Gravity, he briefly introduced his novel approach to quantum gravity and quantization.

  • An Algebraic Approach to Gauge Gravity: A Concise Overview: An introduction of Karatheodoris’ novel approach; includes and explanation of his avail of string theory ideas.
  • Quantum Gravity Problem: The Notebooks: The notebooks number roughly 30 volumes, and are presented in reverse chronological order with each volume linked to its own webpage. Each volume’s webpage contains the notebook’s title, PDF link, a listing of some transcribed commentaries/conclusions and their corresponding PDF page numbers for reference to the original work. They are numbered (in the menu at the right of each page) to give a rough timeline; his last notebook, containing the bulk of the most recent work, begins the list at #1.
  • Gravity/Gauge Gravity: Commentary on the Algebroid Approach: This page is still under construction. Its purpose is to give the reader quicker access to (the development of) Karatheodoris’ theory through excerpts culled from his notebooks. It lists commentaries, conclusions, summaries and philosophical insights that support his theory, and includes page references. (This page is still under construction)
  • Quantum Gravity Problem: Published/Edited Articles: This page contains a collection of published articles, and a few in progress with notations, edits, etc. The unpublished article, “Gravity on a Lie algebroid structure”, (his last work in progress), proposes a new framework for a generalized gauge gravity and quantization. Research for this paper is described in A Concise Overview. The article’s incompleteness may require reference to the notebooks.
