# Possible spontaneous breaking of lorentz and CPT symmetry

@article{Colladay1999PossibleSB, title={Possible spontaneous breaking of lorentz and CPT symmetry}, author={D. Colladay}, journal={Physics of Atomic Nuclei}, year={1999}, volume={63}, pages={1097-1102} }

One possible ramification of unified theories of nature such as string theory that may underlie the conventional standard model is the possible spontaneous breakdown of Lorentz and CPT symmetry. In this talk, the formalism for inclusion of such effects into a low-energy effective field theory is presented. An extension of the standard model that includes Lorentz-and CPT-breaking terms is developed. The restriction of the standard model extension to the QED sector is then discussed.
