Modifications and Violations of Lorentz Invariance: Phenomenology  

Particle Physics > s.a. anomaly [chiral]; causal sets; CPT; dirac fields; instantons; particle statistics; spinning particles.
* Possibilities: It can by expected to lead to violations of causality, locality and unitarity, and to modified photon dispersion relations (and also for gravitons and other particles), from \(\omega^2 = c^2k^2\) to \(\omega^2 = c^2k^2 + ak^4 + \ldots\).
