3D Quantum Gravity ?

Gravity in three dimensions strikes a balance between models that are tractable and models that are relevant. It may exhibit black hole solutions, graviton modes and asymptotically AdS solutions. A consistent quantization of AdS_3 gravity would be of great interest. Recently, a chiral version of 3D topologically massive gravity was constructed. Its CFT dual was conjectured to be purely right moving. In this talk we review this construction, and the sometimes heated debate regarding its properties.
