Title: Short Course on Quantum Gravity (part three)
The third lecture will be devoted to the remaining aspects of canonical quantization which were not covered in the previous lecture. After that we will deal with the covariant quantization of gravity within the so-called spinfoam models --- we will introduce the Regge calculus, path integral quantization of the topological field theory, enforcing the simplicity constraints and main features of the resulting models of quantum gravity. As before, we will try to present all material slowly and methodically.
