Classical geodesics from the canonical quantisation of spacetime coordinates

16 Jan 2019  ·  Garay Iñaki, Robles-Pérez Salvador ·

A canonical quantisation of the coordinates of the spacetime within the general relativity theory is proposed. This quantisation will depend on the observer but it provides an interesting perspective on the problem of relating the non-relativistic and classical limits of a possible quantum gravity theory... In this sense, within this formalism, it is possible to recover from the quantum equation satisfied by a test field the classical geodesics of the corresponding spacetime. On the other hand, the Schr\"odinger equation is recovered in the Newtonian limit. A key ingredient for this procedure is a generalization of the Maupertuis principle, that is, the possibility of describing the geodesics of a given metric as the non-affine geodesics of other conformal metric under the action of a potential. read more
