Computational Geometry Column 43
We show that the introduction of triangulations with variable connectivity and fluctuating egde-lengths (Random Regge Triangulations) allows for a relatively simple and direct analyisis of the modular properties of 2 dimensional simplicial quantum gravity.
The modular geometry of Random Regge Triangulations
Such an analysis allows us to associate a WeilPetersson metric with the set of random Regge triangulations and prove that the corresponding volume provides the dynamical triangulation partition function for pure gravity.
The modular geometry of Random Regge Triangulations
It is important to stress that whereas a Regge triangulation characterizes a unique (up to automorphisms) singular Euclidean structure, this latter actually allows for a more general type of metric triangulation.
The modular geometry of Random Regge Triangulations
An ensemble of planar triangulations with properties very different from those of the Poissonian Vorono¨ıDelaunay lattices is given by the so-called dynamical triangulations model, which has been used as a constructive approach to discrete Euclidean quantum gravity in two dimensions38 .
