    The dynamical variables (which in gravity theory are the metric components gμν) are denoted by φ i. The index i is to be understood as a combined discrete-continuous label. The implicit summation convention involves integrals as well as sums.Google Scholar

    We use units for which ħ = c = 1 and a spacetime signature-+++.Google Scholar
