#### Background independent quantum mechanics and gravity

(American Physical Society, 2003-09-15)

We argue that the demand of background independence in a quantum theory of gravity calls for an extension of standard geometric quantum mechanics. We discuss a possible kinematical and dynamical generalization of the latter ...

#### Exact solution of the harmonic oscillator in arbitrary dimensions with minimal length uncertainty relations

(American Physical Society, 2002-06-15)

We determine the energy eigenvalues and eigenfunctions of the harmonic oscillator where the coordinates and momenta are assumed to obey the modified commutation relations [(x) over cap (i),(p) over cap (j)]=i (h) over ...

#### Relating the cosmological constant and supersymmetry breaking in warped compactifications of IIB string theory

(American Physical Society, 2003-02-15)

It has been suggested that the observed value of the cosmological constant is related to the supersymmetry breaking scale M-susy through the formula Lambdasimilar toM(p)(4)(M-susy/M-p)(8). We point out that a similar ...

#### Effect of the minimal length uncertainty relation on the density of states and the cosmological constant problem

(American Physical Society, 2002-06-15)

We investigate the effect of the minimal length uncertainty relation, motivated by perturbative string theory, on the density of states in momentum space. The relation is implemented through the modified commutation relation ...

#### alpha-states in de Sitter space

(American Physical Society, 2005-02)

Field theory in de Sitter space admits a one-parameter family of vacua determined by a superselection parameter alpha. Of these vacua, the Euclidean vacuum uniquely extrapolates to the vacuum of flat Minkowski space. States ...

#### Quantum gravity, torsion, parity violation, and all that

(American Physical Society, 2005-11)

We discuss the issue of parity violation in quantum gravity. In particular, we study the coupling of fermionic degrees of freedom in the presence of torsion and the physical meaning of the Immirzi parameter from the viewpoint ...

#### Short distance versus long distance physics: The classical limit of the minimal length uncertainty relation

(American Physical Society, 2002-07-15)

We continue our investigation of the phenomenological implications of the "deformed" commutation relations [(x) over cap (i),(p) over cap (j)]=i (h) over bar[(1+beta(p) over cap (2))delta(ij)+beta'(p) over cap (i)(p) over ...

#### Mass, entropy, and holography in asymptotically de Sitter spaces

(American Physical Society, 2002-06-15)

We propose a novel prescription for computing the boundary stress tensor and charges of asymptotically de Sitter (dS) spacetimes from data at early or late time infinity. If there is a holographic dual to dS spaces, defined ...

#### Glueball spectrum of pure Yang-Mills theory in 2+1 dimensions

(American Physical Society, 2007-09)

We present details of the analytic computation of the spectrum of lowest spin glueballs in pure Yang-Mills theory in 2+1 dimensions. The new ingredient is provided by the conjectured new nontrivial expression for the ...

#### Notes on spacetime thermodynamics and the observer dependence of entropy

(American Physical Society, 2004-03)

Because of the Unruh effect, accelerated and inertial observers differ in their description of a given quantum state. The implications of this effect are explored for the entropy assigned by such observers to localized ...
