Alonso, Rodrigo (2020). A covariant momentum representation for loop corrections in gravity. Journal of High Energy Physics 2020(5): 131.

Author(s) from Durham


A transformation is introduced in momentum representation to keep a covariant description at every stage of a loop computation in gravity. The procedure treats on equal footing local internal and space-time symmetries althought the complete transformation is known for the former [1] whereas in gravity we solve for the first few orders in an expansion. As an explicit application the one loop UV divergences of Hilbert-Einstein gravity with a cosmological constant and spin 0, 1/2 and 1 matter are computed with functional methods and in a field-covariant formalism.
