 Article overview

Towards a unitary, renormalizable and ultraviolet-complete quantum theory of gravity
Christian F. Steinwachs ;
Date 16 Apr 2020
AbstractFor any fundamental quantum field theory, unitarity, renormalizability, and relativistic invariance are considered to be essential properties. Unitarity is inevitably connected to the probabilistic interpretation of the quantum theory, while renormalizability guarantees its completeness. Relativistic invariance, in turn, is a symmetry which derives from the structure of spacetime. So far, the perturbative attempt to formulate a fundamental local quantum field theory of gravity based on the metric field seems to be in conflict with at least one of these properties. In quantum Hov{r}ava gravity, a quantum Lifshitz field theory of gravity characterized by an anisotropic scaling between space and time, unitarity and renormalizability can be retained while Lorentz invariance is sacrificed at high energies and must emerge only as approximate symmetry at low energies. I review various approaches to perturbative quantum gravity with a particular focus on recent progress in the quantization of Hov{r}ava gravity, supporting its theoretical status as a unitary, renormalizable and ultraviolet-complete quantum theory of gravity.
