A group theoretical mechanism for unification of local gauge and spacetime symmetries is introduced. No-go theorems prohibiting such unification are circumvented by slightly relaxing the usual requirement on the gauge group: only the so called Levi factor of the gauge group needs to be compact semisimple, not the entire gauge group. This allows a non-conventional supersymmetry-like extension of the gauge group, glueing together the gauge and spacetime symmetries, but not needing any new exotic…

A new kind of local symmetry without gauge bosons

In conventional gauge theories, any local gauge symmetry generator is accompanied by a corresponding gauge boson in order to compensate the transformation of the gauge-covariant derivation against

Possible Alternative Mechanism to SUSY: Conservative Extensions of the Poincaré Group

A group theoretical mechanism is outlined, which can indecomposable extend the Poincare group by the compact internal (gauge) symmetries at the price of allowing some nilpotent (or, more precisely:

Inequivalent Goldstone hierarchies for spontaneously broken spacetime symmetries

The coset construction is a powerful tool for building theories that non-linearly realize symmetries. We show that when the symmetry group is not semisimple and includes spacetime symmetries,

Gravity and unification: a review

We review various classical unified theories of gravity and other interactions that have appeared in the literature, paying special attention to scenarios in which spacetime remains four-dimensional,

We consider a diffeomorphism invariant theory of a gauge field valued in a Lie algebra that breaks spontaneously to the direct sum of the spacetime Lorentz algebra, a Yang–Mills algebra and their

All Possible Symmetries of the S Matrix

We prove a new theorem on the impossibility of combining space-time and internal symmetries in any but a trivial way. The theorem is an improvement on known results in that it is applicable to

Problem of Combining Interaction Symmetries and Relativistic Invariance

It is proved that the symmetry-interaction generators do not commute with either theLorentz translation generators or the homogeneous Lorentz generators. (M.J.T.)

A necessary and sufficient condition for two quasifree states of CAR to be quasiequivalent is obtained. Quasif ree states is characterized as the unique KMS state of a Bogoliubov automorphism of CAR.
