Emergent gravity from offshell energy fixing
Abstract
Offshell processes do not preserve the energy momentum tensor (EMT) in quantum field theory (QFT). Fixing the EMT throughout offshell processes, implies a gravitonlike quantum field to emerge without dynamics. Its dynamics are generated through quantum corrections. This fixed offshell energy condition (FOSEC) implies the existence of a linear gravitylike theory, and in special cases the full Poincarè gauge theory. In this work it is shown that imposing the FOSEC in QFT implies the emergence of a viable quantum theory of gravity.
