2+1D Loop Quantum Gravity on the Edge
Laurent Freidel ; Florian Girelli ; Barak Shoshany ;
Date 13 Nov 2018
AbstractWe develop a new perspective on the discretization of the phase space structure of gravity in 2+1 dimensions as a piecewise-flat geometry in 2 spatial dimensions. Starting from a subdivision of the continuum geometric and phase space structure into elementary cells, we obtain the loop gravity phase space coupled to a collection of effective particles carrying mass and spin, which measure the curvature and torsion of the geometry. We show that the new degrees of freedom associated to the particle-like elements can be understood as edge modes, which appear in the decomposition of the continuum theory into subsystems and do not cancel out in the gluing of cells along codimension 2 defects. These new particle-like edge modes are gravitationally dressed in an explicit way. This provides a detailed explanation of the relations and differences between the loop gravity phase space and the one deduced from the continuum theory.
