Event Details & Abstract: 

We discuss the different forms of the functional RG equation and their relation to each other. In particular we suggest a generalized version of the Polchinski equation as an alternative to the Wetterich equation in order to discuss Weinberg's asymptotic safety program for defining quantum gravity.
