Title: A review of some research programs in classical and quantum gravity
We will give a brief overview of the following three research programs: (1) influence of curvature and torsion on the motion of bodies, (2) constructions of quantum gravity models based on higher gauge theories, and (3) quantum information theoretical approach to quantum gravity. The first program is mostly completed, while the second and third are still ongoing. We will discuss both the main results obtained so far, and the open problems that are yet to be studied.
