Quantum gravity research provides us with fascinating models for space-time at the smallest scales. However, a bottleneck common to many approaches is the extraction of the large-scale dynamics for these models. This will not only provide a crucial consistency test but also be essential for making sought-after predictions for future experiments. Numeric tools will be inescapable for this task. This school will therefore provide an introduction to these numerical tools and their applications to a broad array of quantum gravity approaches. The school is aimed at junior researchers (PhD students/postdocs) with a quantum gravity background or interested in applying numerical tools to quantum gravity.
Topics covered include:
- Introduction to Monte Carlo methods
- Monte Carlo methods in Dynamical Triangulations
- Introduction to Tensor Networks methods
- Coarse graining of Spin Foams
- Numerical tools in the Asymptotic Safety approach
- Numerical tools for Loop Quantum Cosmology

The Universal Renormalization Group Machine - 2
Functional renormalization group techniques based on Wetterichs equation provide a powerful tool for studying the properties of gravity in the quantum regime and its connection to the observable low-energy world. Explicit computations in this framework require the evaluation of functional traces over operator-valued functions. In these lectures I will give a pedagogical introduction to the Universal Renormalization Group Machine, a combinatorial algorithm which allows evaluating such traces in a systematic way.

Numerical loop quantum cosmology
In the last decade various cosmological spacetimes have been quantized using the techniques of loop quantum gravity. To understand singularity resolution and decipher reliable Planck scale physics, development of new numerical methods and usage of high performance computing is critical in loop quantum cosmology. In recent years, these developments have robustly demonstrated resolution of singularities in quantum spacetimes.

Quantum Gravity from Lattice Gauge Theory via Holography
The gauge/gravity duality relates supersymmetric gauge theories to superstring/M-theory.
Powerful Monte Carlo methods developed in lattice QCD can be applied to study the former,and from the simulation data we can extract the quantum gravitational effects. In this talk I will give a brief introduction to lattice gauge theory and supersymmetry on a lattice, and show some applications to quantum gravity via the gauge/gravity duality.
