From quantum gravity to conformal tensor models
I will present an overview of the path leading from non-perturbative approaches to quantum gravity to the recent development of field theories in the so-called "melonic limit".
Along such path one encounters topics such as asymptotic safety, dynamical triangulations, tensor models, AdS/CFT duality, and more. I will try to make sense of all that.
