In the context of conventional quantum field theory, we present a general Lorentz-violating extension of the minimal $\mathrm{SU}(3)\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}\mathrm{SU}(2)\ifmmode\times\else\texttimes\fi{}\mathrm{U}(1)$ standard model including $\mathrm{CPT}$-even and $\mathrm{CPT}$-odd terms. It can be viewed as the low-energy limit of a physically relevant fundamental theory with Lorentz-covariant dynamics in which spontaneous Lorentz violation occurs. The extension has gauge… 

Dimensional reduction of a Lorentz- and CPT-violating Maxwell-Chern-Simons model

Taking as a starting point a Lorentz and CPT noninvariant Chern-Simons-like model defined in $1+3$ dimensions, we proceed to realize its dimensional reduction to $D=1+2.$ One then obtains a new

Lorentz violating scalar Casimir effect for a D -dimensional sphere

We investigate the Casimir effect, due to the confinement of a scalar field in a $D$-dimensional sphere, with Lorentz symmetry breaking. The Lorentz-violating part of the theory is described by an

One-loop structure of the photon propagator in the standard model extension

We study radiative corrections on the photon propagator from the electroweak sector of the minimal Lorentz- and $CPT$-violating Standard Model Extension. We derive the most general Lorentz-violating

Maxwell electrodynamics modified by a CPT -odd dimension-five higher-derivative term

In this paper, we consider an electrodynamics of higher derivatives coupled to a Lorentz-violating background tensor. Specifically, we are interested in a dimension-five term of the CPT-odd sector of

Photon sector analysis of Super and Lorentz symmetry breaking: effective photon mass, bi-refringence and dissipation

Within the standard model extension (SME), we expand our previous findings on four classes of violations of Super-Symmetry (SuSy) and Lorentz Symmetry (LoSy), differing in the handedness of the

Thermal aspects of interacting quantum gases in Lorentz-violating scenarios

In this work, we study the interaction of quantum gases in Lorentz-violating scenarios considering both boson and fermion sectors. In the latter case, we investigate the consequences of a system

Leading-order classical Lagrangians for the nonminimal standard-model extension

In this paper, we derive the general leading-order classical Lagrangian covering all fermion operators of the nonminimal Standard-Model Extension (SME). Such a Lagrangian is considered to be the

Noncommutative gauge theory without Lorentz violation

The most popular noncommutative field theories are characterized by a matrix parameter ${\ensuremath{\theta}}^{\ensuremath{\mu}\ensuremath{\nu}}$ that violates Lorentz invariance. We consider the

Lorentz-violating supersymmetric quantum field theories

We study the possibility of constructing Lorentz-violating supersymmetric quantum field theories under the assumption that these theories have to be described by Lagrangians which are renormalizable

Testing Lorentz and CPT invariance with ultracold neutrons

In this paper we investigate, within the standard model extension framework, the influence of Lorentz- and CPT-violating terms on gravitational quantum states of ultracold neutrons. Using a



Theory and Experiment in Gravitational Physics

New technological advances have made it feasible to conduct measurements with precision levels which are suitable for experimental tests of the theory of general relativity. This book has been

Review of particle properties.

This biennial Review summarizes much of Particle Physics using data from previous editions, plus 2205 new measurements from 667 papers, and features expanded coverage of CP violation in B mesons and of neutrino oscillations.
