Abstract

Abstract Quantization of general relativity in metric variables using “precanonical” quantization based on the De Donder-Weyl covariant Hamiltonian formulation is outlined. Elements of classical geometry needed to formulate the wave equation emerge from a self-consistency with the underlying quantum dynamics of the metric in this sense ensuring the background independence of the formulation.
