A new duality between topological M-theory and loop quantum gravity

- MathematicsScience China Physics, Mechanics & Astronomy
- 2018

Inspired by the long wave-length limit of topological M-theory, which re-constructs the theory of $3+1$D gravity in the self-dual variables' formulation, we conjecture the existence of a duality…

Inspired by the low wave-length limit of topological M-theory, which re-constructs the theory of $3+1$D gravity in the self-dual variables' formulation, and by the realization that in Loop Quantum…

Gravitational origin of the weak interaction's chirality

We present a new unification of the electro-weak and gravitational interactions based on the joining the weak SU(2) gauge fields with the left handed part of the spacetime connection, into a single…

Enhanced color gauge invariance and a new di-photon state at the LHC

- Physics
- 2016

We propose to interpret the possible resonance seen in di-photons at the LHC at 750 Gev as a bound state of a new pair of heavy gluons associated with an enhanced color gauge invariance. These have a…

GRAVITY AND MIRROR GRAVITY IN PLEBANSKI FORMULATION

We present several theories of four-dimensional gravity in the Plebanski formulation, in which the tetrads and the connections are the independent dynamical variables. We consider the relation…

Higher Theory and the Three Problems of Physics

According to the Butterfield–Isham proposal, to understand quantum gravity we must revise the way we view the universe of mathematics. However, this paper demonstrates that the current elaborations…

Invisible QCD as Dark Energy

We account for the late time acceleration of the Universe by extending the Quantum Chromodynamics (QCD) color to a S U ( 3 ) invisible sector (IQCD). If the Invisible Chiral symmetry is broken in the…

Plebanski action extended to a unification of gravity and Yang-Mills theory

We study a unification of gravity with Yang-Mills fields based on a simple extension of the Plebanski action to a Lie group G which contains the local Lorentz group. The Coleman-Mandula theorem is…

New spinfoam vertex for quantum gravity

- Physics

We introduce a new spinfoam vertex to be used in models of 4d quantum gravity based on SU(2) and SO(4) BF theory plus constraints. It can be seen as the conventional vertex of SU(2) BF theory, the…

Gravi-weak unification

The coupling of chiral fermions to gravity makes use only of the selfdual SU(2) subalgebra of the (complexified) SO(3, 1) algebra. It is possible to identify the antiselfdual subalgebra with the…

This work presents an alternative dynamics that can be derived as a quantization of a Regge discretization of Euclidean general relativity, where second class constraints are imposed weakly.

Coherent states for FLRW space-times in loop quantum gravity

We construct a class of coherent spin-network states that capture properties of curved space-times of the Friedmann-Lamaitre-Robertson-Walker type on which they are peaked. The data coded by a…
