New research discovers link between disparate approaches to quantum gravity

A new study by researchers from the International Centre for Theoretical Sciences (ICTS) and the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics (PI) discovers a unifying thread in two approaches to quantum gravity that were previously believed to be separate. The study also elucidates a remarkable theoretical prediction: when both quantum mechanical and gravitational effects are important, it is impossible to confine information to a finite region of space.
