Post-edited  Twistor theory for LQG
Eastwood, Michael (Auteur de la Conférence) | CIRM (Editeur )

Twistor Theory was proposed in the late 1960s by Roger Penrose as a potential geometric unification of general relativity and quantum mechanics. During the past 50 years, there have been many mathematical advances and achievements in twistor theory. In physics, however, there are aspirations yet to be realised. Twistor Theory and Loop Quantum Gravity (LQG) share a common background. Their aims are very much related. Is there more to it? This talk will sketch the geometry and symmetry behind twistor theory with the hope that links with LQG can be usefully strengthened. We believe there is something significant going on here: what could it be?
