This volume provides a unique introduction to the gravitational asymptotic safety scenario within quantum gravity research. Aimed at graduate students and experienced researchers alike, it guides readers from the foundations to the state-of-the-art in the field, including applications to black holes and the cosmology near the Big Bang.

Truncations of single-metric type; 6. Bi-metric truncations; 7. Conformally reduced gravity; 8. The reconstruction problem; 9. Alternative field variables; 10. Matter coupled to quantum gravity; 11. Towards phenomenology; 12. Miscellanea; Appendix A. Notation and conventions; Appendix B. Organizing the derivative expansion; Appendix C. Metric variations; Appendix D. Heat Kernel techniques; Appendix E. Cutoff- and threshold functions; Appendix F. Field decompositions; References; Index.
