- Pure mathematics

John C. Baez spends much of his time researching Pure mathematics, Quantum gravity, Algebra, Gauge theory and Theoretical physics. The study of Pure mathematics is intertwined with the study of Group in a number of ways. His studies deal with areas such as SIC-POVM and Quantum probability as well as Quantum gravity.

In his work, Barrett–Crane model, Group field theory and Euclidean quantum gravity is strongly intertwined with Spin foam, which is a subfield of Theoretical physics. His studies in Quantum geometry integrate themes in fields like Quantization and Classical mechanics. His Canonical quantum gravity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating elements of Horizon and Black hole thermodynamics.

The scientist’s investigation covers issues in Pure mathematics, Mathematical physics, Algebra, Quantum gravity and Quantum mechanics. His work in Higher-dimensional algebra, Lie group, Hilbert space, Morphism and Invariant is related to Pure mathematics. His work in Mathematical physics addresses subjects such as Mathematical analysis, which are connected to disciplines such as Minkowski space.

His Quantum gravity research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Theoretical physics and Classical mechanics. The Loop quantum gravity study which covers Quantum geometry that intersects with Black hole thermodynamics, Horizon and Immirzi parameter. In his research on the topic of General relativity, Group is strongly related with Gauge theory.
