Interplay between Spacetime Curvature, Speed of Light and Quantum Deformations of Relativistic Symmetries

  title={Interplay between Spacetime Curvature, Speed of Light and Quantum Deformations of Relativistic Symmetries},
  author={Angel Ballesteros and Giulia Gubitosi and Flavio Mercati},
Recent work showed that κ-deformations can describe the quantum deformation of several relativistic models that have been proposed in the context of quantum gravity phenomenology. Starting from the Poincaré algebra of special-relativistic symmetries, one can toggle the curvature parameter Λ, the Planck scale quantum deformation parameter κ and the speed of light parameter c to move to the well-studied κ-Poincaré algebra, the (quantum) (A)dS algebra, the (quantum) Galilei and Carroll algebras…

Deformed quantum phase spaces, realizations, star products and twists
We review deformed quantum phase spaces and their realizations in terms of undeformed phase space. In particular, methods of calculation for the star product, coproduct of momenta and twist from
Diffeomorphisms in momentum space: physical implications of different choices of momentum coordinates in the Galilean Snyder model
It has been pointed out that different choices of momenta can be associated to the same noncommutative spacetime model. The question of whether these momentum spaces, related by diffeomorphisms,
Double Quantization
In a quantum gravity theory, it is expected that the classical notion of spacetime disappears, leading to a quantum structure with new properties. A possible way to take into account these quantum


Cayley-Klein Lie Bialgebras: Noncommutative Spaces, Drinfel'd Doubles and Kinematical Applications
The Cayley–Klein (CK) formalism is applied to the real algebra so(5) by making use of four graded contraction parameters describing, in a unified setting, 81 Lie algebras, which cover the (anti-)de
Coisotropic Lie bialgebras and complementary dual Poisson homogeneous spaces
Quantum homogeneous spaces are noncommutative spaces with quantum group covariance. Their semiclassical counterparts are Poisson homogeneous spaces, which are quotient manifolds of Lie groups M = G/H
Fuzzy worldlines with κ-Poincaré symmetries
Abstract A novel approach to study the properties of models with quantum-deformed relativistic symmetries relies on a noncommutative space of worldlines rather than the usual noncommutative
Noncommutative (A)dS and Minkowski spacetimes from quantum Lorentz subgroups
The complete classification of classical r-matrices generating quantum deformations of the (3 + 1)-dimensional (A)dS and Poincaré groups such that their Lorentz sector is a quantum subgroup is
Quantum gravity phenomenology at the dawn of the multi-messenger era -- A review
The exploration of the universe has recently entered a new era thanks to the multi-messenger paradigm, characterized by a continuous increase in the quantity and quality of experimental data that is

Dispersion relations in κ-noncommutative cosmology
We study noncommutative deformations of the wave equation in curved backgrounds and discuss the modification of the dispersion relations due to noncommutativity combined with curvature of spacetime.

Four-dimensional gravity on a covariant noncommutative space
We formulate a model of noncommutative four-dimensional gravity on a covariant fuzzy space based on SO(1,4), that is the fuzzy version of the $\text{dS}_4$. The latter requires the employment of a
