A pedagogical and selfcontained introduction to noncommutative quantum field theory is presented, with emphasis on those properties that are intimately tied to string theory and gravity. Topics covered include the WeylWigner correspondence, noncommutative Feynman diagrams, UV/IR mixing, noncommutative YangMills theory on infinite space and on the torus, Morita equivalences of noncommutative gauge theories, twisted reduced models, and an indepth study of the gauge group of noncommutative YangMills theory. Some of the more mathematical ideas and

We review the generalization of field theory to spacetime with noncommuting coordinates, starting with the basics and covering most of the active directions of research. Such theories are now known to emerge from limits of M theory and string theory, and to describe quantum Hall states. In the last few years they have been studied intensively, and many qualitatively new phenomena have been discovered, both on the classical and quantum level. Submitted to Reviews of Modern Physics.
Spacetime noncommutative field theories and unitarity

Field theories with only space noncommutativity are perturbatively unitary. This can be understood from string theory, since space noncommutati ..."

We study the perturbative unitarity of noncommutative scalar field theories. Field theories with spacetime noncommutativity do not have a unitary Smatrix. Field theories with only space noncommutativity are perturbatively unitary. This can be understood from string theory, since space noncommutative field theories describe a low energy limit of string theory in a background magnetic field. On the other hand, there is no regime in which spacetime noncommutative field theory is an appropriate description of string theory. Whenever spacetime noncommutative field theory becomes relevant massive open string states cannot be neglected. May
Noncommutative Renormalization

A new version of scale analysis and renormalization theory has been found on the noncommutative Moyal space. It could be useful for physics beyond the standard model or for standard physics in strong external field. The good news is that quantum field theory is better behaved on noncommutative than on ordinary space: indeed it has no Landau ghost. Noncommutativity might therefore be an alternative to supersymmetry. We review this rapidly growing subject.

We investigate the deformation of D–brane world–volumes in curved backgrounds. We calculate the leading corrections to the boundary conformal field theory involving the background fields, and in particular we study the correlation functions of the resulting system. This allows us to obtain the world–volume deformation, identifying the open string metric and the noncommutative deformation parameter. The picture that unfolds is the following: when the gauge invariant combination ω = B + F is constant one obtains the standard Moyal deformation of the brane world–volume. Similarly, when dω = 0 one obtains the noncommutative Kontsevich deformation, physically corresponding to a curved brane in a flat background. When the background is curved, H = dω ̸ = 0, we find that the relevant algebraic structure is still based on the Kontsevich expansion, which now defines a nonassociative star product. We then recover, within this formalism, some known results of Matrix theory in curved backgrounds. In particular, we show how the effective action obtained in this framework describes, as expected, the dielectric effect of D–branes. The polarized branes

We study the U(N) noncommutative YangMills theory at the oneloop approximation. We check renormalizability and gauge invariance of the model and calculate the oneloop beta function. The interaction of the SU(N) gauge bosons with the U(1) gauge boson plays an important role in the consistency check. In particular, the SU(N) theory by itself is not consistent. We also find that the θ → 0 limit of the U(N) theory does not converge to the ordinary SU(N) × U(1) commutative theory, even at the planar limit. Finally, we comment on the UV/IR mixing. 1 Introduction and Conclusions Noncommutative gauge field theories lately attracted a lot of attention, mainly due to the discoveries of their relation to string theory [1]. It was also found that the perturbative structure of these theories has an interesting pattern. It was shown [2], in the case of scalar theory, that planar

We consider the Standard Model on a noncommutative space and expand the action in the noncommutativity parameter θ µν. No new particles are introduced, the structure group is SU(3) × SU(2) × U(1). We derive the leading order action. At zeroth order the action coincides with the ordinary Standard Model. At leading order in θ µν we find new vertices which are absent in the Standard Model on commutative spacetime. The most striking features are couplings between quarks, gluons and electroweak bosons and many new vertices in the charged and neutral currents. We find that parity is violated in noncommutative QCD. The Higgs mechanism can be applied. QED is not deformed in the minimal version of the

We show that the matrixmodel action for noncommutative U(n) gauge theory actually describes SU(n) gauge theory coupled to gravity. This is elaborated in the 4dimensional case. The SU(n) gauge fields as well as additional scalar fields couple to an effective metric Gab, which is determined by a dynamical Poisson structure. The emergent gravity is intimately related to noncommutativity, encoding those degrees of freedom which are usually interpreted as U(1) gauge fields. This leads to a class of metrics which contains the physical degrees of freedom of gravitational waves, and allows to recover e.g. the Newtonian limit with arbitrary mass distribution. It also suggests a consistent picture of UV/IR mixing in terms of an induced gravity action. This should provide a suitable framework for quantizing gravity.

We present the exact solution of a scalar field theory defined with noncommuting position and momentum variables. The model describes charged particles in a uniform magnetic field and with an interaction defined by the GroenewoldMoyal starproduct. Explicit results are presented for all Green’s functions in arbitrary even spacetime dimensionality. Various scaling limits of the field theory are analysed nonperturbatively and the renormalizability of each limit examined. A supersymmetric extension of the field theory is also constructed in which the supersymmetry transformations are parametrized by differential operators in an infinitedimensional noncommutative algebra.
