Robust Discretization Schemes…
Today, the following article came up on the arXivs:
This is all fine and dandy… but my question is: “How does this paper (above) compare to the following”:
- Discrete gauge theory: from lattices to TQFT,
- Discrete Differential Forms, Gauge Theory, and Regge Calculus (PDF).
That is, GR is naturally written in terms of [pseudo-]differential forms (aka tensor densities), so the methods described above should be very appropriate to attack the problem of discretizing the path integral in such a way as to retain its symmetries.
