General Covariance in Quantum Gravity
This is actually the question of general covariance in quantum gravity.2 The aim of the present paper is to investigate this problem at the first post-Newtonian approximation.
General Covariance in Quantum Gravity
In the first post-Newtonian approximation, the only diagram we need to consider is the one-loop diagram pictured in Fig. 1.
