Quantum Gravity Effects on Particle Properties  

Particle Properties > s.a. effects on photons; modified lorentz symmetry; semiclassical quantum gravity; spacetime foam.
* Idea: Quantum spacetime fluctuations affect light and particle propagation, masses, and possibly other properties, and some effects can be seen as a violation of Lorentz symmetry; Relative corrections are typically of order (λfund/λ)2; Consequences are expected to manifest themselves mostly at Planck scales, and include baryon number violation in black-hole formation and evaporation, CP and CPT violation (distinguished from GUT effects), suppression of ultra-high energy scattering amplitudes.
* History: The first proposal of modified dispersion relations may have been made in the 1971 paper by Kirzhnits & Chechin about the absence of a GZK cutoff in the UHECR spectrum.
