It is possible that relativistic symmetries become deformed in the semiclassical regime of quantum gravity. Mathematically, such deformations lead to the non- commutativity of spacetime geometry and non-vanishing curvature of momentum space. The best studied example is given by the κ-Poincare Hopf algebra, associ- ated with κ-Minkowski space. On the other hand, the curved momentum space is a well-known feature of particles coupled to three-dimensional gravity. The pur- pose of this thesis was…

Beyond Fock space in three-dimensional semiclassical gravity

Quantization of relativistic point particles coupled to three-dimensional Einstein gravity naturally leads to field theories living on the Lorentz group in their momentum representation. The Lie


In this paper, we review some aspects of relativistic particles' mechanics in the case of a nontrivial geometry of momentum space. We start by showing how the curved momentum space arises in the

Quantum Mechanics of a Point Particle in 2+1 Dimensional Gravity

We study the phase space structure and the quantization of a pointlike particle in (2 + 1)-dimensional gravity. By adding boundary terms to the first-order Einstein-Hilbert action, and removing all

Group Momentum Space and Hopf Algebra Symmetries of Point Particles Coupled to 2+1 Gravity

We present an in-depth investigation of the $SL(2,\mathbb{R})$ momentum space describing point particles coupled to Einstein gravity in three space-time dimensions. We introduce different sets of

Relative locality in κ-Poincaré

We show that the κ-Poincaré Hopf algebra can be interpreted in the framework of curved momentum space leading to relative locality. We study the geometric properties of the momentum space described

Spectral geometry as a probe of quantum spacetime

Employing standard results from spectral geometry, we provide strong evidence that in the classical limit the ground state of three-dimensional causal dynamical triangulations is de Sitter spacetime.

Poisson structure and symmetry in the Chern?Simons formulation of (2 + 1)-dimensional gravity

In the formulation of (2 + 1)-dimensional gravity as a Chern?Simons gauge theory, the phase space is the moduli space of flat Poincar? group connections. Using the combinatorial approach developed by
