Gravity and random surfaces on the lattice: A review

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

9 Citations (Scopus)


We review recent work in the lattice approach to random surfaces and quantum gravity. Our task is made somewhat easier by some very interesting results, particularly in four dimensions, that have appeared recently and which are reported elsewhere in these proceedings. Inevitably, given the scope of the review and the limitations of space, the presentation will omit work of importance and be telegraphic in discussing work that is included, for which apologies are offered in advance. After the customary brief historical introduction we work our way in dimensional order from one up to four dimensions before closing with some remarks on the relation, if any, between the various lattice models and "real" 4D gravity.
