Effective line-elements in loop quantum gravity

Canonical quantization schemes often suggest modifications to classical dynamics, such as in an effective Friedmann equation. However, although often ignored, they also necessarily imply new effects for quantum space-time leading to new (quantum) symmetries. The invariant line-element, corresponding to  new geometrical structures emerging in the presence of holonomy modifications in loop quantum gravity, shall be consistently derived in this talk. We shall use black-hole models to illustrate new features of this quantum space-time, going beyond standard Riemannian manifolds.
