Title: Discrete Wheeler-DeWitt equations in 2 + 1 dimensions
Host: Steve Carlip
Room: 285
Abstract: The infrared structure of quantum gravity is explored by solving a lattice version of the Wheeler-DeWitt equations. For this talk, the case of 2+1 dimensions is presented. The wavefunction solutions only depend on the geometric quantities indicating preservation of diffeomorphism. Properties of the lattice vacuum are consistent with the existence of an ultraviolet fixed point in G located at the origin, thus precluding the existence of a weak coupling perturbative phase. The correlation length exponent is determined exactly and found to be nu=6/11. The results obtained lend support to the claim that the Lorentzian and Euclidean formulations belong to the same field-theoretic universality class.
