Abstract:

We continue here the analysis of the previous paper of the Wheeler-DeWitt constraint operator for four-dimensional, Lorentzian, non-perturbative, canonical vacuum quantum gravity in the continuum. In this paper we derive the complete kernel, as well as a physical inner product on it, for a non-symmetric version of the Wheeler-DeWitt operator. We then define a symmetric version of the Wheeler-DeWitt operator. For the Euclidean Wheeler-DeWitt operator as well as for the generator of the Wick transform from the Euclidean to the Lorentzian regime we prove existence of self-adjoint extensions and based on these we present a method of proof of self-adjoint extensions for the Lorentzian operator. Finally we comment on the status of the Wick rotation transform in the light of the present results.
