In this talk, we review the basics concepts of fuzzy physics and quantum field theory on the Groenewold-Moyal Plane as examples of noncommutative spaces in physics. We introduce the basic ideas, and discuss some important results in these fields. At the end we outline some recent developments in the field.

Dimensional Reduction of Supersymmetric Gauge Theories

Main objective of the present dissertation is the investigation for all the possible low energy models which emerge in four dimensions by the dimensional reduction of a gauge theory over multiple

Topological Many-Body States in Quantum Antiferromagnets via Fuzzy Supergeometry

This work reviews applications of the mathematics of fuzzy super-geometry in the construction of supersymmetric versions of VBS (SVBS) states, and gives a pedagogical introduction of SVBS models and their properties.

Monte-Carlo simulation of the Gaussian BFSS matrix model at large number of dimensions

A Gaussian approximation to the bosonic part of the BFSS matrix model using Monte Carlo simulations based on Metropolis algorithm reproduces with great accuracy the stringy Hagedorn phase transition from a confinement (black string) phase to a deconfinement (black hole) phase.

The Fuzzy Supersphere

Fermion doubling problem and noncommutative geometry. 2.

This paper brings out its relationship to the Ginsparg-Wilson approach for the fermion doubling problem in discrete field theories based on the fuzzy sphere and its cartesian products.

Remarks on twisted noncommutative quantum field theory

We review recent results on twisted noncommutative quantum field theory by embedding it into a general framework for the quantization of systems with a twisted symmetry. We discuss commutation

D-Branes in Noncommutative Field Theory

A mathematical introduction to the classical solutions of noncommutative field theory is presented, with emphasis on how they may be understood as states of D-branes in Type II superstring theory.

Noncommutative Manifolds, the Instanton Algebra¶and Isospectral Deformations

Abstract: We give new examples of noncommutative manifolds that are less standard than the NC-torus or Moyal deformations of ℝn. They arise naturally from basic considerations of noncommutative
