Note:These pages make extensive use of the latest XHTML and CSS Standards. They ought to look great in any standards-compliant modern browser. Unfortunately, they will probably look horrible in older browsers, like Netscape 4.x and IE 4.x. Moreover, many posts use MathML, which is, currently only supported in Mozilla. My best suggestion (and you will thank me when surfing an ever-increasing number of sites on the web which have been crafted to use the new standards) is to upgrade to the latest version of your browser. If that's not possible, consider moving to the Standards-compliant and open-source Mozilla browser.

Loop Review

Nicolai, Peeters and Zamaklar have done a yeoman’s job of reviewing Loop Quantum Gravity for the unitiated. As Luboš recounts, they find lots of things to be sceptical about. My brief encounter with the true believers certainly left me scratching my head.

Still, if you want to talk intelligently about the subject (if only to mount a withering critique), you need to know what they’re on about. And Nicolai, et al provide a fair-minded and very readable summary.
