# Three-dimensional gravity and deformations of relativistic symmetries

@article{Trzeniewski2015ThreedimensionalGA, title={Three-dimensional gravity and deformations of relativistic symmetries}, author={Tomasz Trześniewski}, journal={arXiv: High Energy Physics - Theory}, year={2015} }

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…

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…

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.…
