Euclidean quantum gravity is studied with renormalization group methods. Analytical results for a nontrivial ultraviolet fixed point are found for arbitrary dimensions and gauge fixing parameters in the Einstein-Hilbert truncation. Implications for quantum gravity in four dimensions are discussed.

Item Type: Article
Additional Information: A new ultraviolet fixed point is detected in four and more dimensions. New analytical RG equations for gravity are derived, solved and discussed; relevance for physics at hadron colliders is emphazised. Our approach has been taken up subsequently by all other groups in this field. It has over 50 citations.
