Contrary to what is often stated, a fundamental spacetime discreteness need not contradict Lorentz invariance. A causal set’s discreteness is in fact locally Lorentz invariant, and we recall the reasons why. For illustration, we introduce a phenomenological model of massive particles propagating in a Minkowski spacetime which arises from an underlying causal set. The particles undergo a Lorentz invariant diffusion in phase space, and we speculate on whether this could have any bearing on the… CONTINUE READING
