Graviton Physics

  author={Barry R. Holstein},
The interactions of gravitons with matter are calculated in parallel with the familiar photon case. It is shown that graviton scattering amplitudes can be factorized into a product of familiar electromagnetic forms, and cross sections for various reactions are straightforwardly evaluated using helicity methods.

The interactions of gravitons with spin-1 matter are calculated in parallel with the well known photon case. It is shown that graviton scattering amplitudes can be factorized into a product of
Quantum gravity at the LHC
We study the production of massless gravitons at the LHC and compare our results to those obtained in extra-dimensional models. The signature in both cases is missing energy plus jets. In case of
Gravitational Möller scattering, Lorentz violation and finite temperature
A formal analogy between the gravitational and the electromagnetic fields leads to the notion of Gravitoelectromagnetism (GEM) to describe gravitation. A Lagrangian formulation for GEM is developed...

Inspired by recent progress on classical limits of scattering amplitudes, we show that hard thermal loops can be obtained from classical limits of off-shell currents. The classicality of hard thermal
Effective action for the Einstein–Maxwell theory at order RF4
We use a recently derived integral representation of the one-loop effective action in the Einstein–Maxwell theory for an explicit calculation of the part of the effective action containing the
CHY representations for gauge theory and gravity amplitudes with up to three massive particles
A bstractWe show that a wide class of tree-level scattering amplitudes involving scalars, gauge bosons, and gravitons, up to three of which may be massive, can be expressed in terms of a
Photon-graviton amplitudes from the effective action
We report on the status of an ongoing effort to calculate the complete one-loop low-energy effective actions in Einstein-Maxwell theory with a massive scalar or spinor loop, and to use them for
Scattering equations and BCJ relations for gauge and gravitational amplitudes with massive scalar particles
A bstractWe generalize the scattering equations to include both massless and massive particles. We construct an expression for the tree-level n-point amplitude with n − 2 gluons or gravitons and a


Quantum Corrections to the Schwarzschild and Kerr Metrics: Spin 1
a previous evaluation of the one-graviton loop corrections to the energy-momentum tensor has been extended to particles with unit spin and speculations are presented concerning general properties of
Low-Energy Theorem for Graviton Scattering
A low-energy theorem for the scattering of gravitons from spin-0 particles is derived. We use the dispersion-theoretic method, recently utilized by Abarbanel and Goldberger to derive low-energy
Gravitational Born amplitudes and kinematical constraints
It is shown that in the Born approximation the helicity amplitudes for graviton-graviton scattering are completely determined by kinematical considerations alone, without detailed Feynman graph

Gyroscope precession and general relativity
Precession of a gyroscope in the presence of a gravitational field is of considerable interest, on account of the soon to be launched satellite test and because of its connection to Mach’s principle.
On the generally covariant Dirac equation
Using explicit tetrads for any given metric and Fock–Ivanenko coefficients of the generally covariant Dirac equation, we develop a formal method to relate the wave function in a noninertial frame to
Low-Energy Theorems, Dispersion Relations, and Superconvergence Sum Rules for Compton Scattering
A derivation of low-energy theorems for Compton scattering from spin-0 and spin-½ targets is given within the framework of dispersion theory. We work exclusively with physical helicity amplitudes and
