We investigate the formation of virtual black holes in the context of the generalized uncertainty principle (GUP), as a mediator for a proton decay process which is forbidden by the standard model. Then, we calculate the lower bounds of the GUP deformation parameter by the experimental bound on the half-life of the proton. 

Proton decay and the quantum structure of space–time

Virtual black holes in noncommutative space–time are investigated using coordinate coherent state formalism such that the event horizon of a black hole is manipulated by smearing it with a Gaussian

Neutrino decoherence from quantum gravitational stochastic perturbations

Neutrinos undergoing stochastic perturbations as they propagate experience decoherence, damping neutrino oscillations over distance. Such perturbations may result from fluctuations in space-time

ER= EPR and Non-Perturbative Action Integrals for Quantum Gravity

In this paper, we construct and calculate non-perturbative path integrals in a multiply-connected spacetime. This is done by summing over homotopy classes of paths. The topology of the spacetime is

On the fundamental role of massless form of matter in physics

In the paper, with the help of various models, the thesis on the fundamental nature of the field form of matter in physics is considered. In the first chapter a model of special relativity is



No existence of black holes at LHC due to minimal length in quantum gravity

A bstractWe investigate the impact of the Generalized Uncertainty Principle (GUP), proposed by some approaches to quantum gravity such as String Theory and Doubly Special Relativity Theories (DSR) on

How classical are TeV-scale black holes?

We show that the Hawking temperature and the entropy of black holes are subject to corrections from two sources: the generalized uncertainty principle and thermal fluctuations. Both effects increase

Proton decay in minimal supersymmetric SU(5)

We systematically study proton decay in the minimal supersymmetric SU(5) grand unified theory. We find that although the available parameter space of soft masses and mixings is quite constrained, the

Proton decay in supersymmetric models

Will we observe black holes at LHC

The generalized uncertainty principle, motivated by string theory and non-commutative quantum mechanics, suggests significant modifications to the Hawking temperature and evaporation process of black

Black holes at the Large Hadron Collider.

The correlation between the BH mass and its temperature, deduced from the energy spectrum of the decay products, can test Hawking's evaporation law and determine the number of large new dimensions and the scale of quantum gravity.

The Generalized Uncertainty Principle and Quantum Gravity Phenomenology

In this article we examine a Generalized Uncertainty Principle which differs from the Heisenberg Uncertainty Principle by terms linear and quadratic in particle momenta, as proposed by the authors in

Some aspects of virtual black holes

The area and hence the entropy of a real macroscopic black hole is quantized in this model, which gives an intrinsic entropy to all physical systems that can be used to define a direction of time and hence provide a solution to the problem of time.
