Emergence of Lie group symmetric classical spacetimes in canonical tensor model

  title={Emergence of Lie group symmetric classical spacetimes in canonical tensor model},
  author={Taigen Kawano and Naoki Sasakura},
We analyze a wave function of a tensor model in the canonical formalism, when the argument of the wave function takes Lie group invariant or nearby values. Numerical computations show that there are two phases, which we call the quantum and the classical phases, respectively. In the classical phase, fluctuations are suppressed, and there emerge configurations which are discretizations of the classical geometric spaces invariant under the Lie group symmetries. This is explicitly demonstrated for… Expand


Emergent symmetries in the canonical tensor model

Canonical tensor models with local time
It is an intriguing question how local time can be introduced in the emergent picture of spacetime. In this paper, this problem is discussed in the context of tensor models. To consistentlyExpand

Quantum Graphity
We introduce a new model of background independent physics in which the degrees of freedom live on a complete graph and the physics is invariant under the permutations of all the points. We argueExpand
Uniqueness of canonical tensor model with local time
Canonical formalism of the rank-three tensor model has recently been proposed, in which "local" time is consistently incorporated by a set of first class constraints. By brute-force analysis, thisExpand
