Now we want to ask that, except for traditional canonical quantum gravity and superstring theory, whether exists another approach to set up a fundamental theory, in which general relativity and quantum mechanics are compatible.

In his monograph, Bogorodskii considers the problem of finding the gravitational field produced by a system of masses uniformly distriduted on a plane, according to Einstein’s General Relativity Theory (GRT).

The Classical Singularity Theorems and their Quantum Loopholes
In this chapter, we will develop a general theory on general coordinate transformations, and study what cause the violation of general covariance in general relativity.
Problems on Foundations of General Relativity
Different gravity theory has different kind of symmetry, such as general relativity has the symmetry of general covariance, canonical quantum gravity has local Lorentz symmetry and quantum gauge theory of gravity has gravitational gauge symmetry.
Problems on Foundations of General Relativity
Rotation, local and non-local: Though one can define in these theories the rotation of one point-particle relative to another, this notion is not usually treated in the textbooks: (and general relativity holds some surprise about it—cf. (b) of Section 5.3.3).
On the Persistence of Homogeneous Matter
The main products of the theory are a quantisation of the gravitational field with explicitly a refined collections of mass accumulation spectra and a generalisation of Newtonian gravitation theory based on general relativity.

What we would need for a perturbation theory is an action principle in which General Relativity would be represented as an exactly soluble theory plus a regular interaction term.

General Relativity is a geometrized theory of gravity and it assumes that both gravity and electromagnetic field propagate locally in vacuum with the same speed which is equal to the fundamental speed of special theory of relativity [1–3].
