"This volume contains articles by many of the most active workers in quantum gravity theory and related topics. Some of these papers are historical reviews of various areas of gravitational research, while others give technical discussions of the latest research findings. The reader will find hard physical reasoning and enlightened speculation, difficult and deep mathematics, as well as personal feelings about DeWitt and his work. In every case, Bryce's energy and inspirational presence are evident. Bryce DeWitt is a true adventurer. When he is not hacking through some jungle, riding a camel in a desert or floating down a river, he is pushing his way through the enormous complexities of quantum gravity theory." Contributors include S. Adler, J. Bekenstein, C. DeWitt-Morette, K. Kuchar, R. Penrose, W. Unruh, and J. Wheeler. Codice libro della libreria 67670
