Within the setting of a recently proposed model of quantum fields on noncommutative Minkowski space, the consequences of the consistent application of the proper, untwisted Poincare group as the symmetry group are investigated. The emergent model contains an infinite family of fields which are labelled by different noncommutativity parameters, and related to each other by Lorentz transformations. The relative localization properties of these fields are investigated, and it is shown that to each…

On second quantization on noncommutative spaces with twisted symmetries

By the application of the general twist-induced ⋆-deformation procedure we translate second quantization of a system of bosons/fermions on a symmetric spacetime into a noncommutative language. The

Noncommutative Deformations of Wightman Quantum Field Theories

Quantum field theories on noncommutative Minkowski space are studied in a model-independent setting by treating the noncommutativity as a deformation of quantum field theories on commutative space.

Strict Deformation Quantization and Noncommutative Quantum Field Theories

There exist several theoretical frameworks attempting to unify quantum physics with gravity, such as string theory, loop quantum gravity, and quantum field theory (QFT) on noncommutative spacetimes.

The construction and analysis of deformations of quantum field theories by warped convolutions is extended to a class of globally hyperbolic spacetimes. First, we show that any four-dimensional

We re-examine various issues surrounding the definition of twisted quantum field theories on flat noncommutative spaces. We propose an interpretation based on nonlocal commutative field redefinitions
