Lorentz symmetry violation, dark matter and dark energy
Taking into account the experimental results of the HiRes and AUGER collaborations, the present status of bounds on Lorentz symmetry violation (LSV) patterns is discussed. Although significant
Ultra-high energy physics and standard basic principles - Do Planck units really make sense?
It has not yet been elucidated whether the observed flux suppression for ultra- high energy cosmic rays (UHECR) at energies above � 4x1 0 19 eV is a signature of the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin (GZK)
Ultra-high energy physics and standard basic principles
It has not yet been elucidated whether the observed flux suppression for ultrahigh energy cosmic rays (UHECR) at energies above 4 x 1019 eV is a signature of the Greisen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin (GZK) cutoff
Possible cosmogenic neutrino constraints on Planck-scale Lorentz violation
We study, within an effective field theory framework, O(E2MPl2) Planck-scale suppressed Lorentz invariance violation (LV) effects in the neutrino sector, whose size we parameterize by a dimensionless
Possible cosmogenic neutrino constraints on Planck-scale Lorentz violation
We study, within an effective field theory framework, O(E2MPl2) Planck-scale suppressed Lorentz invariance violation (LV) effects in the neutrino sector, whose size we parameterize by a dimensionless
Superbradyons and some possible dark matter signatures
Superluminal preons (superbradyons) with a critical speed in vacuum much larger than the speed of light would, if they exist, play a fundamental role as constituents of the physical vacuum and of the
Planck-scale Lorentz violation constrained by Ultra-High-Energy Cosmic Rays
We investigate the consequences of higher dimension Lorentz violating, CPT even kinetic operators that couple standard model fields to a non-zero vector field in an Effective Field Theory framework.
Lorentz invariance violation and chemical composition of ultra high energy cosmic rays
Motivated by experimental indications of a significant presence of heavy nuclei in the cosmic ray flux at ultra high energies (≳1019 eV), we consider the effects of Planck scale suppressed Lorentz
Lorentz violation, vacuum, cosmic rays, superbradyons and Pamir data
eV could be due to a suppression ofeffective space transverse dimensions. The new pattern considered violates Lorentz symmetry. We point out that,in models with Lorentz symmetry violation, a
Renormalization group flows in a Lifshitz-like four fermi model
We study renormalization group flows in the Lifshitz-like $N$-flavor four-Fermi model discussed in [Phys. Rev. D 80, 105018 (2009)]. In the large-$N$ limit, a nontrivial flow occurs in only one of

Light nuclei solving the AUGER puzzles: the Cen-A imprint
Ultra-high-energy cosmic rays' (UHECR) maps at 60 EeV have been found recently by the AUGER group to be spreading anisotropy signatures in the sky. The results have been interpreted as a
Latest Results from HiRes
HiRes has made the first statistically significant observation of the Griessen-Zatsepin-Kuzmin suppression, by fitting the ultra high energy cosmic ray spectrum observed in monocular mode by the two
Quantum tachyon dynamics
It is suggested that charged tachyons of extremely large mass M could not only contribute to the dark matter needed to fit astrophysical observations, but could also provide an explanation for gamma
Recent results from the Pierre Auger Observatory
The main results from the Auger Observatory are described. A steepening of the spectrum is observed at the highest energies, supporting the expectation that above 4 x 1019 eV the cosmic ray energies

The obscured universe
Auger results on clustering of 60 EeV UHECR ions and the interpretation of the γ-ray spectra of TeV blazars are connected by effects from the extragalactic background light (EBL). The EBL acts as an
Could deformed special relativity naturally arise from the semiclassical limit of quantum gravity
A argument is described for how deformed or doubly special relativity (DSR) may arise in the semiclassical limit of a quantum theory of gravity. We consider a generic quantum theory of gravity

In order to quantitatively test the ability of averaged inhomogeneous cosmologies to correctly describe observations of the large-scale properties of the Universe, we introduce a smoothed template

We discuss the effect of curvature and matter inhomogeneities on the averaged scalar curvature of the present-day universe. Motivated by studies of averaged inhomogeneous cosmologies, we contemplate

We analyze the active-galaxy correlation reported in 2007 by the Pierre Auger Collaboration. The signal diminishes if the correlation-function approach (counting all "source–event" pairs and not only
