Quantum Gravity Problem:
Below is a compilation of George Karatheodoris’ scanned notebooks. He preferred handwritten notes first, intending the publishable form as a final step. The bulk of his theory and formulations, therefore, are found mainly in the notebooks. They begin with his last notebook in 2012, and volumes for years dating back to 2005 are in the process of being uploaded.
Why Scan the Notebooks?
A note from the author “…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.” (notebook: February 2012-July 2012, p. 20.)
Organization and Presentation
The notebooks are scanned in their entirety, it’s impossible to know which notebooks/sections the author intended to scan and reference for his articles. Each title block below begins with a notebook date and topic(s) of work followed by the “Page Link” for the notebook indicated.
Notebook dates for the year 2012 overlap considerably, as work was developed in separate notebooks. The notebook dated February 2012-July 2012** contains considerable work and reviews of the author’s accumulated insights on gravity and quantum gravity.
