Mbour Lectures on Shape Dynamics

11/2012–01/2013 | Voluntary Sunday Lectures (incomplete), African Institute for Mathematical Sciences in Sénégal

Shape dynamics is a reformulation of General Relativity and a new approach to Quantum Gravity. It uses methods of Riemannien geometry, symplectic geometry, Dirac analysis of constrained systems, fiber bundles and lie algebras. I will present the definition of shape dynamics using the methods of a linking theory described by H. Gomes und T. Koslowski (arXiv:1101.5974).
