About one year ago Horava proposed a power-counting renormalizable theory of quantum gravity which abandons local Lorentz invariance. The proposal has been received with growing interest and resulted in various different versions of Horava—Lifshitz gravity theories involving a colourful potpourri of new terminology. In this seminar we first motivate and briefly overview the various different approaches, clarifying their differences and similarities. We then focus on a model referred to as projectable Horava-Lifshitz gravity and summarize the key results regarding its viability.
