Title: Deformed relativistic and nonrelativistic symmetries on canonical noncommutative spaces

Abstract

We study the general deformed conformal-Poincare (Galilean) symmetries consistent with relativistic (nonrelativistic) canonical noncommutative spaces. In either case we obtain deformed generators, containing arbitrary free parameters, which close to yield new algebraic structures. We show that a particular choice of these parameters reproduces the undeformed algebra. The modified coproduct rules and the associated Hopf algebra are also obtained. Finally, we show that for the choice of parameters leading to the undeformed algebra, the deformations are represented by twist functions.

  • We review deformed conformal-Poincare, Schroedinger and conformal-Galilean symmetries compatible with the canonical (constant) noncommutative spacetime.
  • We study the twisted Hopf-algebra symmetries of observer-independent canonical spacetime noncommutativity, for which the commutators of the spacetime coordinates take the form [x{sup {mu}},x{sup {nu}}]=i{theta}{sup {mu}}{sup {nu}} with observer-independent (and coordinate-independent) {theta}{sup {mu}}{sup {nu}}. We find that it is necessary to introduce nontrivial commutators between transformation parameters and spacetime coordinates, and that the form of these commutators implies that all symmetry transformations must include a translation component. We show that with our noncommutative transformation parameters the Noether analysis of the symmetries is straightforward, and we compare our canonical-noncommutativity results with the structure of the conserved charges and the ''no-pure-boost'' requirementmore » derived in a previous study of {kappa}-Minkowski noncommutativity. We also verify that, while at intermediate stages of the analysis we do find terms that depend on the ordering convention adopted in setting up the Weyl map, the final result for the conserved charges is reassuringly independent of the choice of Weyl map and (the corresponding choice of) star product.« less
  • We define a noncommutative Lorentz symmetry for canonical noncommutative spaces. The noncommutative vector fields and the derivatives transform under a deformed Lorentz transformation. We show that the star product is invariant under noncommutative Lorentz transformations. We then apply our idea to the case of actions obtained by expanding the star product and the fields taken in the enveloping algebra via the Seiberg-Witten maps and verify that these actions are invariant under these new noncommutative Lorentz transformations. We finally consider general coordinate transformations and show that the metric is undeformed.
  • In this paper we have studied the nature of kinematical and dynamical laws in {kappa}-Minkowski spacetime from a new perspective: the canonical phase space approach. We discuss a particular form of {kappa}-Minkowski phase space algebra that yields the {kappa}-extended finite Lorentz transformations derived in [D. Kimberly, J. Magueijo, and J. Medeiros, Phys. Rev. D 70, 084007 (2004).]. This is a particular form of a deformed special relativity model that admits a modified energy-momentum dispersion law as well as noncommutative {kappa}-Minkowski phase space. We show that this system can be completely mapped to a set of phase space variables that obeymore » canonical (and not {kappa}-Minkowski) phase space algebra and special relativity Lorentz transformation (and not {kappa}-extended Lorentz transformation). The complete set of deformed symmetry generators are constructed that obeys an unmodified closed algebra but induce deformations in the symmetry transformations of the physical {kappa}-Minkowski phase space variables. Furthermore, we demonstrate the usefulness and simplicity of this approach through a number of phenomenological applications both in classical and quantum mechanics. We also construct a Lagrangian for the {kappa}-particle.« less
  • We study a noncommutative nonrelativistic fermionic field theory in 2+1 dimensions coupled to the Chern-Simons field. We perform a perturbative analysis of the model and show that up to one loop the ultraviolet divergences are canceled and the infrared divergences are eliminated by the noncommutative Pauli term.
