I will summarize Noncommutative Geometry Spectral Action, an elegant geometrical model valid at unification scale, which offers a purely gravitational explanation of the Standard Model, the most successful phenomenological model of particle physics. Noncommutative geometry states that close to the Planck energy scale, spacetime has a fine structure and proposes that it is given as the product of a four-dimensional continuum compact Riemaniann manifold by a tiny discrete finite noncommutative… Expand

Universal Formula for Noncommutative Geometry Actions: Unification of Gravity and the Standard Model.
TLDR
A universal formula for an action associated with a noncommutative geometry, defined by a spectral triple sA, H, Dd, is proposed, based on the spectrum of the Dirac operator, that gives an action that unifies gravity with the standard model at a very high energy scale. Expand
