Abstract


In this work we focus on the quantum Einstein-Yang-Mills sector quantized by the methods of loop quantum gravity. We point out the improved UV behavior of the coupled system as compared to pure quantum Yang-Mills theory on a fixed, classical background spacetime as was considered in a seminal work by Kogut and Susskind. Furthermore, we develop a calculational scheme by which the fundamental spectrum of the quantum Yang-Mills Hamiltonian can be computed in principle and by which one can make contact with the Wilsonian renormalization group, possibly purely within the Hamiltonian framework. Finally, we comment on the relationship of the fundamental spectrum to that of pure Yang-Mills theory on a (flat) classical spacetime.
