Quantization of stationary spherically symmetric gravity
Abstract
Stationary spherically symmetric gravity is equivalent to a SL(2, R)/SO(2) nonlinear coset sigma model coupled to a gravitational remnant. Classically there are stationary solutions besides the static Schwarzschild metric labeled by the Schwarzschild mass m and the TaubNUT charge l. Imposing the SL(2,IR) symmetry at the quantum level the WheelerDeWitt equation is related to the Casimir operator of the coset which makes the system amenable to exact quantization.
