[0802.0864] Area-angle variables for general relativity

Authors: Bianca Dittrich, Simone Speziale

Date: 6 Feb 2008

Abstract: We introduce a modified Regge calculus for general relativity on a triangulated four dimensional Riemannian manifold where the fundamental variables are areas and a certain class of angles. These variables satisfy constraints which are local in the triangulation. We expect the formulation to have applications to classical discrete gravity and non-perturbative approaches to quantum gravity.
