Title: Short Course on Quantum Gravity (part one)
The problem of quantization of gravity is one of the fundamental problems of modern physics. In this sequence of lectures we will discuss the formulation and various approaches to the solution of this problem, with particular attention to the Loop Quantum Gravity program. The lectures are aimed at students, so the material will be presented slowly and methodically, while assuming only the elementary background on quantum field theory and general relativity. The complete material should be covered through a four-lecture course.
