We show that U(1) Yang-Mills theory on noncommutative IR 4 can be renormalized at the one-loop level by multiplicative dimensional renormalization of the coupling constant and fields of the theory. We compute the beta function of the theory and conclude that the theory is asymptotically free. We also show that the Weyl-Moyal matrix defining the deformed(More)
U(1) gauge theory on non-commutative Minkowski space-time in the Feynman-'t Hooft background gauge is studied. In particular, UV divergences and non-commutative IR divergent contributions to the two, three and four-point functions are explicitly computed at one loop. We show that the negative sign of the beta function results from paramagnetism –producing(More)
We discuss both the UV and IR origin of the one-loop triangle gauge anomalies for noncommutative nonabelian chiral gauge theories with fundamental, adjoint and bi-fundamental fermions for U(N) groups. We find that gauge anomalies only come from planar triangle diagrams, the non-planar triangle contributions giving rise to no breaking of the Ward identies.(More)
We compute the beta function at one loop for Yang-Mills theory using as regulator the combination of higher covariant derivatives and Pauli-Villars determinants proposed by Faddeev and Slavnov. This regularization prescription has the appealing feature that it is manifestly gauge invariant and essentially four-dimensional. It happens however that the(More)
—Mobile systems increasingly are being used for production-grade data-centered applications which require system support for transactional properties. For mobile applications, transactions can hide, to some extent, the infrastructure intrinsic to mobile systems, such as disconnection from the network, dozing, and storage limitations. In this paper, we(More)
Electronic commerce systems (retail, auction, etc.) are good examples of data-based systems that operate under correctness and resilience requirements of a transactional nature but go beyond conventional databases, as they are formed by the aggregation of heterogeneous, autonomous components. In this paper we introduce a framework to specify, analyze, and(More)
Current literature on database transaction recovery reveals a semantic gap between high-level requirements (such as the all-or-nothing property) and the low-level descriptions of how these requirements are implemented (in terms of buuers and their policies, volatile and persistent storage, shadows, etc.). At the same time, fast growing demands for recovery(More)
