General relativity is a geometric interpretation of gravity while quantum theory governs the microscopic behaviour of matter.

Since matter is described by quantum theory which in turn couples to geometry, we need a quantum theory of gravity. In order to construct quantum gravity one must reformulate quantum theory on a background independent way. Modern Canonical Quantum General Relativity provides a complete treatise of the canonical quantisation of general relativity. The focus is on detailing the conceptual and mathematical framework, on describing physical applications and on summarising the status of this programme in its most popular incarnation, called loop quantum gravity.

Mathematical concepts and their relevance to physics are provided within this book which therefore can be read by graduate students with basic knowledge of quantum field theory or general relativity.
