Abstract
We apply the formalism of thermofield dynamics to group field theory quantum gravity and construct thermal representations associated with generalised equilibrium Gibbs states using Bogoliubov transformations. The newly constructed class of thermal vacua are entangled, two-mode squeezed, thermofield double states. The corresponding finite temperature representations are inequivalent to the standard zero temperature one based on a degenerate vacuum. An interesting class of states, coherent thermal states, are defined and understood as thermal quantum gravity condensates.
