Title: Unexpected connections between the spincube model and two other QG models
We will discuss two interesting results related to the spincube model of quantum gravity. The first result is the connection between the constrained BFCG action and MacDowell-Mansouri action as the second-order theory. The second result represents the spincube model of QG as a generalization of the Causal Dynamical Triangulations approach to QG. This generalization is an unexpected and surprising result, given the structure of the Diophantine equations which relate the two theories.
