It is our aim to show that the Chern-Simons terms of modified gravity can be understood as generated by the addition of a 3-dimensional algebraic manifold to an initial 11-dimensional space-time manifold; this builds up an -dimensional space-time. In this system, firstly, some fields living in the bulk join the fields that live on the 11-dimensional manifold, so that the rank of the gauge fields exceeds the dimension of the algebra; consequently, there emerges an anomaly. To solve this problem…

Anomaly on Superspace of Time Series Data

Abstract We apply the G-theory and anomaly of ghost and antighost fields in the theory of supersymmetry to study a superspace over time series data for the detection of hidden general supply and



Kaluza-Klein theory in the limit of large number of extra dimensions

The Kaluza-Klein compactification in the limit of a large number of extra dimensions is studied. The starting point is the Einstein-Hilbert action plus cosmological constant in 4+D dimensions. It is

Chern-Simons modification of general relativity

General relativity is extended by promoting the three-dimensional gravitational Chern-Simons term to four dimensions. This entails choosing an embedding coordinate v_\mu -- an external quantity,

Perturbations of Schwarzschild black holes in Chern-Simons modified gravity

We study perturbations of a Schwarzschild black hole in Chern-Simons modified gravity. We begin by showing that Birkhoff's theorem holds for a wide family of Chern-Simons coupling functions, a scalar

Chern-Simons modified gravity and closed timelike curves

We verify the consistency of the Godel-type solutions within the four-dimensional Chern-Simons modified gravity with the non-dynamical Chern-Simons coefficient, for different forms of matter

The birth of the universe in a new G-Theory approach

Recently, Padmanabhan has discussed that the expansion of the cosmic space is due to the difference between the number of degrees of freedom on the boundary surface and the number of degrees of

Birth of the GUP and its effect on the entropy of the Universe in Lie-$N$-algebra

In this paper, the origin of the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP) in an $M$-dimensional theory with Lie-$N$-algebra is considered. This theory which we name GLNA(Generalized

Papapetrou energy-momentum tensor for Chern-Simons modified gravity

We construct a conserved, symmetric energy-momentum (pseudo-)tensor for Chern-Simons modified gravity, thus demonstrating that the theory is Lorentz invariant. The tensor is discussed in relation to

M5 from M2

Recently an action based on Lie 3-algebras was proposed to describe M2-branes. We study the case of infinite dimensional Lie 3-algebras based on the Nambu-Poisson structure of three dimensional
