We investigate a version of noncommutative QED where the interaction term, although natural, breaks the spin-statistics connection. We calculate e(-) + e(-) -> e(-) + e(-) and gamma + e(-) -> gamma + e(-) cross-sections in the tree approximation and explicitly display their dependence on theta(mu nu). Remarkably the zero of the elastic e(-) + e(-) -> e(-) + e(-) cross-section at 90 degrees in the center-of-mass system, which is due to Pauli principle, is shifted away as a function of theta(mu…

Location and direction dependent effects in collider physics from noncommutativity

We examine the leading order noncommutative corrections to the differential and total cross sections for e{sup +}e{sup -{yields}}qq. After averaging over the Earth's rotation, the results depend on

S matrix on the Moyal plane: Locality versus Lorentz invariance

Twisted quantum field theories on the Groenewold-Moyal plane are known to be nonlocal. Despite this nonlocality, it is possible to define a generalized notion of causality. We show that interacting

A modern guide to 𝜃-Poincaré

Motivated by the recent interest in underground experiments phenomenology (see Refs. 1–3), we review the main aspects of one specific noncommutative space–time model, based on the Groenewold–Moyal

Twisted gauge and gravity theories on the Groenewold-Moyal plane

Recent work indicates an approach to the formulation of diffeomorphism invariant quantum field theories (qft's) on the Groenewold-Moyal plane. In this approach to the qft's, statistics gets twisted

Wigner oscillators, twisted Hopf algebras, and second quantization

By correctly identifying the role of the central extension in the centrally extended Heisenberg algebra h, we show that it is indeed possible to construct a Hopf algebraic structure on the

Lehmann-Symanzik-Zimmermann S -matrix elements on the Moyal plane

Field theories on the Groenewold-Moyal plane are studied using the Lehmann-Symanzik-Zimmermann formalism. The example of real scalar fields is treated in detail. The $S$-matrix elements in this

Noncommutative scalar fields in compact spaces: quantization and implications

In this paper we consider a two component scalar field theory, with noncommutativity in its conjugate momentum space. We quantize such a theory in a compact space with the help of dressing

In this work, we formulate a non-commutative (NC) extension of AdS-CFT correspondence that is manifested in the modification of behavior of a holographic superconductor. The noncommutativity is

Quantum Fields on the Groenewold-Moyal Plane

We give an introductory review of quantum physics on the noncommutative space–time called the Groenewold–Moyal plane. Basic ideas like star products, twisted statistics, second quantized fields and

The explicit Feynman rules are given for massive particles of any spin j, in both a 2j+1-component and a 2(2j+l)-component formalism. The propagators involve matrices which transform like symmetric

Twisted Galilean symmetry and the Pauli principle at low energies

We show the twisted Galilean invariance of the noncommutative parameter, even in the presence of spacetime noncommutativity. We then obtain the deformed algebra of the Schrodinger field in

We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero B-field. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimally

We define a theory of noncommutative general relativity for canonical noncommutative spaces. We find a subclass of general coordinate transformations acting on canonical noncommutative spacetimes to
