Tensor operators in Loop Quantum Gravity

I will show that tensor operators appear naturally in the
context of Loop Quantum Gravity and how these objects allow us to build
observables for any gauge group - classical or quantum. Then focusing on the
case of Uq(su(2)) as gauge group, I will define some geometric observables for
a q-deformed intertwiner and discuss how such intertwiners characterize a
quantized hyperbolic geometry.
