Title: Large-spin asymptotics of the LQG wavefunctions
By using the stationary-point approximation and asymptotic formula for the vertex amplitude of the EPRL spin-foam model we show that the large-spin asymptotics of flat space Hartle-Hawking LQG wavefunction cannot be of the Gaussian type required by the existence of the correct graviton propagator in the semiclassical limit.
