Séminaire de Physique ThéoriqueTowards twisted standard model in Moyal spacetime
T R Govindarajan (Institute of Mathematical Sciences, Chennai, India)
Monday 18 May 2009 14:00 - Tours - Salle 1180 (Bât E2)
We will consider in detail the Moyal spacetime as an example of Noncommutative geometry and point out the existance of twisted Poincare invariance in such a spacetime. We will establish violation Pauli's exclusion principle if this symmetry is to be preserved. We will explore how gauge theories are to be constructed and study the question of spontaneous symmetry breakdown as a step towards cosntruction of standard model in these spaces.
