We reexamine various issues surrounding the definition of twisted quantum field theories on flat noncommutative spaces. We propose an interpretation based on nonlocal commutative field redefinitions which clarifies previously observed properties such as the formal equivalence of Green’s functions in the noncommutative and commutative theories, causality, and the absence of UV/IR mixing. We use these fields to define the functional integral formulation of twisted quantum field theory. We exploit techniques from braided tensor algebra to argue that the twisted Fock space states of these free fields obey conventional statistics. We support our claims with a detailed analysis of the modifications induced in the presence of background magnetic fields, which induces additional twists by magnetic translation operators and alters the effective noncommutative geometry seen by the twisted quantum fields. When two such field theories are dual to one another, we demonstrate that only our braided physical states Twisted quantum field theory is a modification of the traditional approach to noncommutative field theory [19, 42] aimed at restoring the symmetries of spacetime which are broken by noncommutativity.

Abstract: We derive noncommutative Einstein equations for abelian twists and their solutions in consistently symmetry reduced sectors, corresponding to twisted FRW cosmology and Schwarzschild black holes. While some of these solutions must be rejected as models for physical spacetimes because they contradict observations, we find also solutions that can be made compatible with low energy phenomenology, while exhibiting strong
Twisted noncommutative field theory with the Wick–Voros and Moyal products, Phys

For the latter we discuss both the classical and the quantum field theory in the quartic potential case, and calculate the Green’s functions up to one loo ..."

We present a comparison of the noncommutative field theories built using two different star products: Moyal and WickVoros (or normally ordered). For the latter we discuss both the classical and the quantum field theory in the quartic potential case, and calculate the Green’s functions up to one loop, for the two and four points cases. We compare the two theories in the context of the noncommutative geometry determined by a Drinfeld twist, and the comparison is made at the level of Green’s functions and Smatrix. We find that while the Green’s functions are different for the two theories, the Smatrix is It is likely that at short distances spacetime has to be described by different geometrical structures, and that the very concept of point and localizability may no longer be adequate. This is one of the main motivations for the introduction of noncommutative geometry [1, 2, 3]. The simplest kind of

Abstract. We construct a differential algebra of forms on the kappadeformed space. For a given realization of the noncommutative coordinates as formal power series in the Weyl algebra we find an infinite family of oneforms and nilpotent exterior derivatives. We derive explicit expressions for the exterior derivative and oneforms in covariant and noncovariant realizations. We also introduce higherorder forms and show that the exterior derivative satisfies the graded Leibniz rule. The differential forms are not gradedcommutative, but they satisfy the graded Jacobi identity. The starproduct of classical differential forms is also defined. It is shown that the product depends on the realizations of both the noncommutative coordinates and oneforms on the kappadeformed space. 1.

This work is an effort in order to compose a pedestrian review of the recently elaborated Doplicher, Fredenhagen, Roberts and Amorim (DFRA) noncommutative (NC) space which is a minimal extension of the DFR space. In this DRFA space, the object of noncommutativity (θ µν) is a variable of the NC system and has a canonical conjugate momentum. Namely, for instance, in NC quantum mechanics we will show that θ ij (i, j = 1, 2, 3) is an operator in Hilbert space and we will explore the consequences of this socalled “operationalization”. The DFRA formalism is constructed in an extended spacetime with independent degrees of freedom associated with the object of noncommutativity θ µν. We will study the symmetry properties of an extended x+θ spacetime, given by the group P ′ , which has the Poincaré group P as a subgroup. The Noether formalism adapted to such extended x + θ (D = 4 + 6) spacetime is depicted. A consistent algebra involving the enlarged set of canonical operators is described, which permits one to construct theories that are dynamically invariant under the action of the rotation group. In this framework it is also possible to give dynamics to the NC operator sector, resulting in new features. A consistent classical mechanics formulation is analyzed in such a way that, under quantization, it furnishes a NC

Dedicated to the memory of Raffaele Punzi We show that the Ultraviolet/Infrared mixing of noncommutative field theories with the GrönewoldMoyal product, whereby some (but not all) ultraviolet divergences become infrared, is a generic feature of translationally invariant associative products. We find, with an explicit calculation that the phase appearing in the nonplanar diagrams is the one given by the commutator of the coordinates, the semiclassical Poisson structure of the non commutative spacetime. We do this One of the original motivations [1, 2] to consider a noncommutative structure of space or spacetime was the hope that the presence of a dimensionful parameter, and a modification of the short distance properties, could resolve the problem of the infinities of quantum field theory. The analogy in this

We consider noncommutative geometries obtained from a triangular Drinfeld twist. This allows to construct and study a wide class of noncommutative manifolds and their deformed Lie algebras of infinitesimal diffeomorphisms. This way symmetry principles can be implemented. We review two main examples [15][18]: a) general covariance in noncommutative spacetime. This leads to a noncommutative gravity theory. b) Symplectomorphims of the algebra of observables associated to a noncommutative configuration space. This leads to a geometric formulation of quantization on noncommutative spacetime, i.e., we establish a noncommutative correspondence principle from ⋆Poisson brackets to ⋆commutators. New results concerning noncommutative gravity include the Cartan structural equations for the torsion and curvature tensors, and the associated Bianchi identities. Concerning scalar field theories the deformed algebra of classical and quantum An interesting and promising field of research is the issue of spacetime structure in extremal

We give a general and nontechnical review of some aspects of noncommutative geometry as a tool to understand the structure of spacetime. We discuss the motivations for the constructions of a noncommutative geometry, and the passage from commutative to noncommutative spaces. We then give a brief description of Connes approach to the standard model, of the noncommutative geometry of strings and of field theory on noncommutative spaces. We also discuss the role of symmetries and some possible consequences for cosmology. Talk given at the workshop: Geometry, Topology, QFT and Cosmology, Paris, 2830 In this contribution I will give a general, and personal, overview of some attempts that physicists and mathematicians are making to understand the structure of spacetime at extremely small distances. The tool used for the description of spacetime at the Planck length scale is what is called Noncommutative
