## Latest revision as of 01:28, 14 February 2013

In this page, the acronym "GR-EFT" stands form "effective (quantum) field theory of general relativity".

### Original Work

**Scale of Quantum Gravity**, Tao Han, Scott Willenbrock

An article "deriving" the breakdown scale of GR-EFT.

**The Holographic Entropy Bound and Local Quantum Field Theory, Ulvi Yurtsever**
An interesting attempt towards "obtaining(?)" the area law of entropy for black holes from QFT.

### Reviews

John F. Donoghue is one of the leading experts on the subject of GR-EFT. His review **Introduction to the Effective Field Theory Description of Gravity** is one of the oldest reviews (yet still very relevant) on this topic that I could find so far. A much more recent recent review by the same author is The effective field theory treatment of quantum gravity.

**Quantum Gravity in Everyday Life: General Relativity as an Effective Field Theory** by Cliff Burgess. This review also appears in the Living Reviews: [1].

**A pedagogical explanation for the non-renormalizability of gravity** by Assaf Shomer.

### Notes

I found some interesting and relevant notes by Jesse Thaler, a leading quantum field theorist. One is on **Gravity and Uniterity** and the other one is on **Lorentz-Violating Dynamics****.**

Jaques Distler has a blog entries on this topic, **here**.
