Fenomenology of quantum general relativity: idea, difficoulties and possible predictions

During the seminar I will briefly introduce my idea of a canonical quantization under restrictions of general relativity. First I will show how a proper choice of canonical variables leads to the manifestly diffeomorphism invariant description of a quantum field. Next I will present a list of assumptions and simplifications that I will use in direct calculations. Then I will sketch the main steps in the derivation of quantum corrections coming from the gravitational degrees of freedom on the example of the scalar field. Discussing phenomenological applications of my result, I will consider possibilities of proving the assumptions and generalizing the simplifications from the first part of my talk.
