Effective Quantum Gravity

  • Kasia RejznerEmail author
Part of the Mathematical Physics Studies book series (MPST)


The functional approach to pQFT together with the BV framework introduced in Chap.  7 has been successfully applied to gauge theories [FR12b, FR12a] and can also be used in quantization of theories where the local symmetries involve transformation of spacetime points.
