Gauge theories on a space-time that is deformed by the Moyal–Weyl product are constructed by twisting the coproduct for gauge transformations. This way a deformed Leibniz rule is obtained, which is used to construct gauge invariant quantities. The connection will be enveloping algebra valued in a particular representation of the Lie algebra. This gives rise to additional fields, which couple only weakly via the deformation parameter θ and reduce in the commutative limit to free fields… 

Deformed Gauge Theories

Gauge theories are studied on a space of functions with the Moyal-Weyl product. The development of these ideas follows the differential geometry of the usual gauge theories, but several changes are

Gauge symmetries on θ-deformed spaces

A Hamiltonian formulation of gauge symmetries on noncommutative (θ deformed) spaces is discussed. Both cases- star deformed gauge transformation with normal coproduct and undeformed gauge

Gauge field theories with covariant star-product

A noncommutative gauge theory is developed using a covariant star-product between differential forms defined on a symplectic manifold, considered as the space-time. It is proven that the field

Gauge generators, transformations and identities on a noncommutative space

By abstracting a connection between gauge symmetry and gauge identity on a noncommutative space, we analyse star (deformed) gauge transformations with the usual Leibniz rule as well as undeformed

Differential calculus and gauge transformations on a deformed space

We consider a formalism by which gauge theories can be constructed on noncommutative space time structures. The coordinates are supposed to form an algebra, restricted by certain requirements that

Tensor calculus on noncommutative spaces

It is well known that for a given Poisson structure one has infinitely many star products related through the Kontsevich gauge transformations. These gauge transformations have an infinite functional

Singular gauge transformations in string field theory

We show that the existence of a tachyon vacuum puts tight restrictions on the form of solutions to the equations of motion of string field theory. In particular, we demonstrate that every solution

Wilson Loops and Area-Preserving Diffeomorphisms in Twisted Noncommutative Gauge Theory

We use twist deformation techniques to analyze the behavior under area-preserving diffeomorphisms of quantum averages of Wilson loops in Yang-Mills theory on the noncommutative plane. We find that

Field theory on nonanticommutative superspace

We discuss a deformation of the Hopf algebra of supersymmetry (SUSY) transformations based on a special choice of a twist. As usual, algebra itself remains unchanged, but the comultiplication

Noncommutative D=4 gravity coupled to fermions

We present a noncommutative extension of Einstein-Hilbert gravity in the context of twist-deformed space-time, with a -product associated to a quite general triangular Drinfeld twist. In particular



A gravity theory on noncommutative spaces

A deformation of the algebra of diffeomorphisms is constructed for canonically deformed spaces with constant deformation parameter θ. The algebraic relations remain the same, whereas the

Noncommutative geometry and gravity

We study a deformation of infinitesimal diffeomorphisms of a smooth manifold. The deformation is based on a general twist. This leads to a differential geometry on a noncommutative algebra of

Noncommutative gauge theory for Poisson manifolds

Enveloping algebra-valued gauge transformations for non-abelian gauge groups on non-commutative spaces

Abstract. An enveloping algebra-valued gauge field is constructed, its components are functions of the Lie algebra-valued gauge field and can be constructed with the Seiberg-Witten map. This allows

String theory and noncommutative geometry

We extend earlier ideas about the appearance of noncommutative geometry in string theory with a nonzero B-field. We identify a limit in which the entire string dynamics is described by a minimally

Noncommutative two-dimensional gravities

We give formulations of noncommutative two-dimensional gravities in terms of noncommutative gauge theories. We survey their classical solutions and show that solutions of the corresponding

Untwisting Noncommutative R^d and the Equivalence of Quantum Field Theories

Twist to Close

It has been proposed that the Poincare and some other symmetries of noncommutative field theories should be twisted. Here we extend this idea to gauge transformations and find that twisted gauge
