Problems in Quantum General Relativity and Gravitation
From the early sixties a long-term scientific wave was initiated in the communities of the physical and mathematical disciplines. It was described very well by the title of the survey book (1993) prepared for the 65th birthday of D. Sciama: “The Renaissance of General Relativity and Cosmology” . Six years later one can see that in this area experimental and theoretical issues are still growing in quantity and quality and cross-fertilizing in a measure conceivable only in a very fortunate period of the evolution of a science.
