A Star Product for Differential Forms on Symplectic Manifolds

  title={A Star Product for Differential Forms on Symplectic Manifolds},
  author={Anthony Tagliaferro},
  journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory},
We present a star product between differential forms to second order in the deformation parameter $\hbar$. The star product obtained is consistent with a graded differential Poisson algebra structure on a symplectic manifold. The form of the graded differential Poisson algebra requires the introduction of a connection with torsion on the manifold, and places various constraints upon it. The star product is given to second order in $\hbar^2$. 


A covariant Poisson bracket and an associated covariant star product in the sense of deformation quantization are defined on the algebra of tensor-valued differential forms on a symplectic manifold,

Noncommutative gauge theory using a covariant star product defined between Lie-valued differential forms

We develop an internal gauge theory using a covariant star product. The space-time is a symplectic manifold endowed only with torsion but no curvature. It is shown that, in order to assure the

Gauge field theories with covariant star-product

A noncommutative gauge theory is developed using a covariant star-product between differential forms defined on a symplectic manifold, considered as the space-time. It is proven that the field

Noncommutative differential forms on the kappa-deformed space

We construct a differential algebra of forms on the kappa-deformed space. For a given realization of noncommutative coordinates as formal power series in the Weyl algebra we find an infinite family

Diffeomorphism covariant star products and noncommutative gravity

The use of a diffeomorphism covariant star product enables us to construct diffeomorphism invariant gravities on noncommutative symplectic manifolds without twisting the symmetries. As an example, we

Integrable Hopf twists, marginal deformations and generalised geometry

The Leigh-Strassler family of N=1 marginal deformations of the N=4 SYM theory admits a Hopf algebra symmetry which is a quantum group deformation of the SU(3) part of the R-symmetry of the Ncal=4

Quantum Space-Time and Noncommutative Gauge Field Theories

The three original publications in this thesis encompass various aspects in the still developing area of noncommutative quantum field theory, ranging from fundamental concepts to model building. One



Poisson Algebra of Differential Forms

We give a natural definition of a Poisson differential algebra. Consistency conditions are formulated in geometrical terms. It is found that one can often locally put the Poisson structure on the

Deformation Quantization of Poisson Manifolds

I prove that every finite-dimensional Poisson manifold X admits a canonical deformation quantization. Informally, it means that the set of equivalence classes of associative algebras close to the

Noncommutative differential calculus for a D-brane in a nonconstant B field background with H=0

In this paper we try to construct noncommutative Yang-Mills theory for generic Poisson manifolds. It turns out that the noncommutative differential calculus defined in an old work is exactly what we

Abstract: We give a quantum field theory interpretation of Kontsevich's deformation quantization formula for Poisson manifolds. We show that it is given by the perturbative expansion of the path
