- A causal set action

Causal set theory is discrete, fully covariant theory of quantum

gravity. The discrete framework makes it necessary to reformulate

continuum concepts. One of these concepts is that of a derivative operator. It is

possible to define a derivative operator in causal sets that in

the continuum limit agrees with the d'Alembertian for a scalar

field. This operator can be used to define a causal set action, which

enables Monte-Carlo simulations. In this seminar I will present this operator and action and then

show some results of Monte-Carlo simulations in 2 dimensions.
