I report, emphasizing some key open issues and some aspects that are particularly relevant for phenomenology, on the status of the development of "doubly-special" relativistic ("DSR") theories with both an observer-independent high-velocity scale and an observer-independent small-length/large-momentum scale, possibly relevant for the Planck-scale/quantum-gravity realm. I also give a true/false characterization of the structure of these theories. In particular, I discuss a DSR scenario without…

Position in Minimal Length Quantum Mechanics
Several approaches to quantum gravity imply the presence of a minimal measurable length at high energies. This is in tension with the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle. Such a contrast is then

Some encouraging and some cautionary remarks on Doubly Special Relativity in Quantum Gravity
The idea of a role for DSR (doubly-special relativity) in quantum gravity finds some encouragement in a few scenarios, but in order to explore some key conceptual issues it is necessary to find a
Phenomenology of doubly special relativity
Investigations of the possibility that some novel "quantum" properties of space–time might induce a Planck-scale modification of the energy/momentum dispersion relation focused at first on scenarios
Dirac spinors for Doubly Special Relativity
We construct a Dirac equation that is consistent with one of the recently-proposed schemes for relativistic transformations with two observer-independent scales (a velocity scale, still naturally
Phenomenology of Planck-scale Lorentz-symmetry test theories
In the recent quantum-gravity literature, there has been considerable interest in exploring the possibility of Planck-scale departures from Lorentz symmetry, including possible modifications of the
Non-commutative space-time of Doubly Special Relativity theories
Doubly Special Relativity (DSR) theory is a recently proposed theory with two observer-independent scales (of velocity and mass), which is to describe a kinematic structure underlining the theory of
DOUBLY SPECIAL RELATIVITY VERSUS κ-DEFORMATION OF RELATIVISTIC KINEMATICS
We argue that the so-called doubly special relativity (DSR), recently proposed by Amelino-Camelia et al.1,2 with deformed boost transformations identical with the formulae for κ-deformed kinematics
Modified special relativity on a fluctuating spacetime
It was recently proposed that deformations of the relativistic symmetry, as those considered in deformed special relativity (DSR), can be seen as the outcome of a measurement theory in the presence
A strong astrophysical constraint on the violation of special relativity by quantum gravity
TLDR
The observation of 100-MeV synchrotron radiation from the Crab nebula is used to improve the previous limit by a factor of 40 million, ruling out this type of Lorentz violation, and thereby providing an important constraint on theories of quantum gravity.
Comparison of relativity theories with observer-independent scales of both velocity and length/mass
We consider the two most studied proposals of relativity theories with observer-independent scales of both velocity and length/mass: the one discussed by Amelino-Camelia as an illustrative example
CANONICAL REALIZATIONS OF DOUBLY SPECIAL RELATIVITY
Doubly special relativity is usually formulated in momentum space, providing the explicit nonlinear action of the Lorentz transformations that incorporates the deformation of boosts. Various
