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

Random and Fuzzy
In this lecture I will introduce non-commutative geometry in the form of fuzzy spaces and explain how we have begun examining random fuzzy spaces using Markov Chain Monte Carlo simulations. Doing so leads us to consider a complicated matrix model, with even more complicated observables on it. A particular problem in this approach is how to define observables that can be related to physics and calculated with the computer.
