Title: Linearized Gravity as the Rosetta Stone of Quantization Techniques
Abstract: While it is well known that the theory of linearized general relativity does not lead to a viable quantum theory of gravity, it provides a unique toy model in which to test quantization methods. Recently, this theory has been quantized using the projection operator formalism. The results of this approach are discussed, and compared to those obtained using other quantization programs.
