On quantum aspects of general theory of relativity and its detectors

Department of HEAS (Mathematics), Rajasthan Technical University, Kota 324010, India

Special Issues: 2nd International Conference on Mathematical Modeling, Applied Analysis and Computation (ICMMAAC-19), August 8–10, 2019, JECRC University, Jaipur, India

Starting from limitations of quantum theory and its measurements we have discussed the concept of quantization in general theory of relativity in strong regime as well as quantization of gravity, which leads to gravitons, in weak field limitation. This is based on the fact that general theory of relativity based on strong principle of equivalence which is incompatible with quantum principle. It has shown that this is the complete agreement with the implications following from the measurement analysis. To discuss the physical consequences of the limitations arising for quantum GRT, Compton effect and Euler scattering are discussed.
