Abstract


I will survey the formalism and main results of loop quantum gravity [1], [2] from a mathematical perspective. Then I take a closer look at the way black hole horizons are treated in the theory, by coupling a Chern-Simons theory on the horizon to the bulk degrees of freedom [3]. I will present some recent results on a new way to solve the self-duality equation involved directly in the quantum theory [4].
