We recall some models for noncommutative space-time and discuss quantum field theories on these deformed spaces. We discribe the IR/UV mixing disease, which implies nonrenormalizability for a large

Noncommutative time in quantum field theory

We analyze, starting from first principles, the quantization of field theories, in order to find out to which problems a noncommutative time would possibly lead. We examine the problem in the

The Violation of Remaining Lorentz Symmetry in the Approach of TOPT to Space-Time Noncommutativity

We study remaining Lorentz symmetry, i.e. Lorentz transformations which leave the noncommutativity parameter θ invariant, within the approach of TOPT to space-time noncommutative theories. Their

Retarded functions in noncommutative theories

Troubles with spacetime noncommutative theories: tachyons or S-branes?

We find lorentzian solutions of spacetime noncommutative gauge theories that are localized exponentially in space and time. Together with time translational invariance of the theories, we argue that

Lorentz invariance, unitarity and UV-finiteness of QFT on noncommutative spacetime

Ultraviolet finite quantum field theory on even-dimensional noncommutative spacetime is formulated using coordinate coherent states. 2D spacetime is foliated into families of orthogonal,

Renormalisation of Noncommutative Quantum Field Theories

We sketch our proof that the real Euclidean ϕ4-model on the four-dimensional Moyal plane is renormalisable to all orders. The bare action of relevant and marginal couplings of the model is



Time-ordered perturbation theory on non-commutative spacetime II: Unitarity

Abstract. We examine the unitarity issue in the recently proposed time-ordered perturbation theory on noncommutative (NC) spacetime. We show that unitarity is preserved as long as the interaction

BRST quantization of noncommutative gauge theories

In this paper, the BRST symmetry transformation is presented for the noncommutative U(N) gauge theory. The nilpotency of the charge associated to this symmetry is then proved. As a consequence for

Noncommutative field theory

We review the generalization of field theory to space-time with noncommuting coordinates, starting with the basics and covering most of the active directions of research. Such theories are now known


Although noncommutative QED presents a non-Abelian structure, it does not present structure constants. In view of this we investigate how Ward identity is satisfied in pair annihilation process and

Non-Abelian Gauge Theories on Non-Commutative Spaces

Abstract: The construction of a non-abelian gauge theory on non-commutative spaces is based on enveloping algebra-valued gauge fields. The number of independent field components is reduced to the

Time-ordered perturbation theory on non-commutative spacetime: Basic rules

Abstract. Assuming that the S-matrix on non-commutative (NC) spacetime can still be developed perturbatively in terms of the time-ordered exponential of the interaction Lagrangian, we investigate the

Some phenomenological consequences of the time-ordered perturbation theory of QED on non-commutative spacetime

Abstract. A framework was recently proposed for doing perturbation theory on non-commutative (NC) spacetime. It preserves the unitarity of the S matrix and differs from the naive, popular approach
