Title
Holographic Duality for Quantum Gravity at the Canonical Level
Abstract
An essential guiding principle emergent from research on quantum gravity is the holographic principle. In this proposal, I address the motivations and background materials for constructing a new realization of holographic duality within a recentlybuilt quantum gravity framework. I first review the canonical loop quantum gravity approach and its deformation to include a negative cosmological constant in the Euclidean signature, and then review the current stage of research on holographic duality in quantum gravity. Finally I give a report on the progress made to date and future research plans.
