We discuss the relational strategy to solve the problem of time in quantum gravity and different ways in which it could be implemented, pointing out in particular the fundamentally new dimension that the problem takes in a quantum gravity context in which spacetime and geometry are understood as emergent. We realize concretely the relational strategy we have advocated in the context of the tensorial group field theory formalism for quantum gravity, leading to the extraction of an effective relational cosmological dynamics from quantum geometric models. We analyze in detail the emergent cosmological dynamics, highlighting the improvements over previous work, the contribution of the quantum properties of the relational clock to it, and the interplay between the conditions ensuring a bona fide relational dynamics throughout the cosmological evolution and the existence of a quantum bounce resolving the classical big bang singularity.

Abstract

We discuss the relational strategy to solve the problem of time in quantum gravity and different ways in which it could be implemented, pointing out in particular the fundamentally new dimension that the problem takes in a quantum gravity context in which spacetime and geometry are understood as emergent. We realize concretely the relational strategy we have advocated in the context of the tensorial group field theory formalism for quantum gravity, leading to the extraction of an effective relational cosmological dynamics from quantum geometric models. We analyze in detail the emergent cosmological dynamics, highlighting the improvements over previous work, the contribution of the quantum properties of the relational clock to it, and the interplay between the conditions ensuring a bona fide relational dynamics throughout the cosmological evolution and the existence of a quantum bounce resolving the classical big bang singularity.
