Contents Introduction: the semi-classical effect of quantum gravity and cosmology From deformed special relativity to gravity’s rainbow Modified FRW universe from rainbow gravity
Two fundamental issues in quantum gravity 1. Dynamical problem Gravity is a constrained system, Diffeomorphism invariance ---observables Hamiltonian constraint----problem of time 2. Classical limit of quantum gravity The reconstruction of classical spacetime
Some problems related to loop quantum gravity Special relativity: Lorentz symmetry Testable signature of quantum gravity ： Gamma Ray Burst (2007 ） Particle physics ： Ultra high energy cosmic rays Quantum cosmology ： Big bang ， Inflation Classical limit ： Coherent states ， Gravitons Black Hole Physics: Black hole remnant and information Paradox
The fate of Lorentz symmetry at Planck scale Threshold anomaly of ultra high energy cosmic rays : GZK cutoff S.Coleman and S.Glashow, Phys. Rev.D 59, 116008 (1999) J. Magueijo and L. Smolin, Phys. Rev. Lett(88) 190403,2002. Modified dispersion relations

The fate of Lorentz symmetry at Planck scale Modified dispersion relations from semiclassical LQG:
Doubly Special Relativity(DSR) The relativity of inertial frames, two universal constant: 1) In the limit, the speed of a photon goes to a universal constant,. 2) in the above condition is also a universal constant. As a result, the invariant of energy and momentum is modified to
Non-linear Lorentz transformation in DSR In momentum space
Two key issues in DSR The definition of position space Soccer problem ?
Gravity’s rainbow Non-linear map on momentum space: To keep the contraction between position and momentum linear The dual space is endowed with an energy dependent quadratic invariant.
From doubly special relativity to gravity’s rainbow or deformed general relativity Rainbow gravity as an extension of DSR into a general relativity: 1) Correspondence principle 2) Modified equivalence principle Freely falling observers who take measurement with energy E, will observe the laws of physics to be the same as modified special relativity.

Rainbow metric and rainbow Einstein equations Rainbow metric Rainbow Einstein equation
Modified FRW universe The modified equations from LQG:
Remark 1: Statistics of photons with modified dispersion relations The state density
Remark 1: Statistics of photons with modified dispersion relations Modified Stefan-Boltzmann law
Remark 2: Impact on black hole physics the modified black holes will not evaporate totally, but have a remnant which can be viewed as a candidate for dark matter. Unruh effect
Summary and Conjectures Rainbow gravity or deformed general relativity can be viewed as an effective theory at the semi-classical limit of quantum gravity. In this framework there is no single or fixed background spacetime, it depends on the energy of probes or test particles. We have considered some possible impacts on the FRW universe as well as Unruh effect and black holes in a heuristic way. More strict mathematical consideration is needed. The scheme presented here can be generalized to other sorts of modified black hole solutions. Conjectures 1)Tunneling effect 2) MOND THANK YOU!
