Quantum Gravity Problem:
Below, compilation of George Karatheodoris’ scanned notebooks for the years 2011 and 2012. Additional volumes of work for previous years will be uploaded as scanning and uploading are completed.
Why Scan the Notebooks?
“…I have to write extremely terse papers in the code (TeX code) for the articles. I will cite pages from notebooks in which details are carried out. I just don’t have time to make the papers pedagogical as much as I might like to.” (from notebook dated: February 2012-July 2012, p. 20.)
Notebook Organization and Presentation
The notebooks are scanned in their entirety as it is impossible to know which notebooks and which sections the author intended to scan and reference. Links to each notebook web page are listed below, with brief notations as content guides.
Below, brief notations mostly by the author, serve as notebook content guides.
