The Lorentz- and CPT-violating Chern-Simons extension of electrodynamics is considered. In the context of N=4 supergravity in four spacetime dimensions, it is argued that cosmological solutions can generate this extension. Within Chern-Simons electrodynamics, theoretical and phenomenological topics are reviewed that concern the number of the remaining spacetime symmetries and the vacuum Cherenkov effect, respectively.

Derivation of Lorentz Invariance and Three Space Dimensions in Generic Field Theory

A very general quantum eld theory, which is not even assumed to be Lorentz invariant, is studied in the limit of very low energy excitations. Fermion and Boson eld theories are considered in

Search for CPT and Lorentz Violation in B0-B0bar Oscillations with Inclusive Dilepton Events

We report preliminary results of a search for CPT and Lorentz violation in B0-B0bar oscillations using an inclusive dilepton sample collected by the BABAR experiment at the PEP-II B Factory. Using a

Tests of relativity by complementary rotating Michelson-Morley experiments.

Within the standard model extension, simultaneous limits on Lorentz violation for electrons (5 coefficients) and photons (8) at levels down to 10(-16), improved by factors between 3 and 50 compared to previous work.
