abstract = {The U(1)^{3} model for 3+1 Euclidian signature general relativity (GR) is an interacting, generally covariant field theory with two physical polarisations that shares many features of Lorentzian GR. In particular, it displays a non-trivial realisation of the hypersurface deformation algebroid with non-trivial, i.e. phase space dependent structure functions rather than structure constants. In this paper we show that the model admits an exact quantisation. The quantisation rests on the observation that for this model and in the chosen representation of the canonical commutation relations the density unity hypersurface algebra can be exponentiated on non-degenerate states. These are states that represent a non-degenerate quantum metric and from a classical perspective are the relevant states on which the hypersurface algebra is representable. The representation of the algebra is exact, with no ambiguities involved and anomaly free. The quantum constraints can be exactly solved using groupoid averaging and the solutions admit a Hilbert space structure that agrees with the quantisation of a recently found reduced phase space formulation. Using the also recently found covariant action for that model, we start a path integral or spin foam formulation which, due to the Abelian character of the gauge group, is much simpler than for Lorentzian signature GR and provides an ideal testing ground for general spin foam models. The solution of U(1)^{3} quantum gravity communicated in this paper motivates an entirely new approach to the implementation of the Hamiltonian constraint in quantum gravity.},
