# Quantum gravity from the point of view of locally covariant quantum field theory

June 05, 2013

We construct perturbative quantum gravity in a generally covariant way. In
particular our construction is background independent. It is based on the
locally covariant approach to quantum field theory and the renormalized
Batalin-Vilkovisky formalism. We do not touch the problem of
nonrenormalizability and interpret the theory as an effective theory at large
length scales.
