Emergent gravity from a mass deformation in warped spacetime
Abstract
We consider a deformation of fivedimensional warped gravity with bulk and boundary mass terms to quadratic order in the action. We show that massless zero modes occur for special choices of the masses. The tensor zero mode is a smooth deformation of the RandallSundrum graviton wave function and can be localized anywhere in the bulk. There is also a vector zero mode with similar localization properties, which is decoupled from conserved sources at tree level. Interestingly, there are no scalar modes, and the model is ghostfree at the linearized level. When the tensor zero mode is localized near the IR brane, the dual interpretation is a composite graviton describing an emergent (induced) theory of gravity at the IR scale. In this case Newton's law of gravity changes to a new power law below the millimeter scale, with an exponent that can even be irrational.

Starting from a standard noncommutative gauge theory and using the SeibergWitten map, we propose a new version of a noncommutative gravity. We use consistent deformation theory starting from a free gauge action and gauging a killing symmetry of the background metric to construct a deformation of the gauge theory that we can relate with gravity. The result of this consistent deformation of the gauge theory is nonpolynomial in A{sub {mu}.} From here we can construct a version of noncommutative gravity that is simpler than previous attempts. Our proposal is consistent and is not plagued with the problems of other approachesmore »

Discretizing gravity in warped spacetime
We investigate the discretized version of the compact RandallSundrum model. By studying the mass eigenstates of the lattice theory, we demonstrate that for warped space, unlike for flat space, the strong coupling scale does not depend on the IR scale and lattice size. However, strong coupling does prevent us from taking the continuum limit of the lattice theory. Nonetheless, the lattice theory works in the manifestly holographic regime and successfully reproduces the most significant features of the warped theory. It is even in some respects better than the KK theory, which must be carefully regulated to obtain the correct physicalmore » 
Dual field theories in (d1)+1 emergent spacetimes from a unifying field theory in d+2 spacetime
According to twotime physics, there is more to space and time than can be garnered with the ordinary formulation of physics. Twotime physics has shown that the standard model of particles and forces is successfully reproduced by a twotime field theory in four space and two time dimensions projected as a holographic image on an emergent spacetime in 3+1 dimensions. Among the successes of this approach is the resolution of the strong CP problem of QCD as an outcome of the restrictions imposed by the higher symmetry structures in 4+2 dimensions. In this paper we launch a program to constructmore » 
Emergent geometry from quantized spacetime
We examine the picture of emergent geometry arising from a massdeformed matrix model. Because of the mass deformation, a vacuum geometry turns out to be a constant curvature spacetime such as ddimensional sphere and (anti)de Sitter spaces. We show that the massdeformed matrix model giving rise to the constant curvature spacetime can be derived from the ddimensional Snyder algebra. The emergent geometry beautifully confirms all the rationale inferred from the algebraic point of view that the ddimensional Snyder algebra is equivalent to the Lorentz algebra in (d+1)dimensional flat spacetime. For example, a vacuum geometry of the massdeformed matrix model ismore » 
Braneinduced gravity from asymmetric warped compactification
We show that braneinduced gravity can be realized as a low energy effective theory of brane worlds with asymmetric warped compactification. A selfaccelerating universe without cosmological constant on the brane can be realized in a model where one side of the bulk has finite volume, but the other side has infinite volume. The spin2 perturbations for braneinduced gravity and asymmetric warped compactification models have the same spectrum at low energies. For a de Sitter brane, the spin2 graviton has mass in the range 0<m{sup 2}{<=}2H{sup 2}, with m{sup 2}=2H{sup 2} in the selfaccelerating universe.
