Resumen

A simple idea of relating the loop quantum gravity (LQG) and loop quantum cosmology (LQC) degrees of freedom is introduced and used to define a relatively robust interface between these theories in context of toroidal Bianchi I model. The idea is an expansion of the construction originally introduced by Ashtekar and Wilson-Ewing and relies on explicit averaging of a certain subclass of spin networks over the subgroup of the diffeomorphisms remaining after the gauge fixing used in homogeneous LQC. It is based on the set of clearly defined principles and thus is a convenient tool to control the emergence and behavior of the cosmological degrees of freedom in studies of dynamics in canonical LQG. The constructed interface is further adapted to isotropic spacetimes. Relating the proposed LQG-LQC interface with some results on black hole entropy suggests a modification to the area gap value currently used in LQC.
