We derive an exact quantum equation of motion for the photon Wigner operator in non-commutative QED, which is gauge covariant. In the classical approximation, this reduces to a simple transport equation which describes the hard thermal effects in this theory. As an example of the effectiveness of this method we show that, to leading order, this equation generates in a direct way the Green amplitudes calculated perturbatively in quantum field theory at high temperature.

Towards noncommutative fuzzy QED

We study in one-loop perturbation theory noncommutative fuzzy quenched QED4. We write down the effective action on fuzzy S2 ? S2 and show the existence of a gauge-invariant UV-IR mixing in the model

Space-time noncommutative theories at finite temperature

We analyze renormalization and the high-temperature expansion of the one-loop effective action of the space-time noncommutative {phi}{sup 4} theory by using the zeta-function regularization in the

Two roads to noncommutative causality

We review the physical motivations and the mathematical results obtained so far in the isocone-based approach to noncommutative causality. We also give a briefer account of the alternative framework

Finite-temperature field theory

In relativistic theories particle number is not conserved (although both lepton and baryon number are). Therefore when discussing the thermodynamics of a quantum field theory one uses the grand
