Abstract:
An unified structure of noncommutative space-time for both gravity and particle physics is presented. This gives possibilities of testing the idea of noncommutative space-time at the currently available energy scale. There are several arguments indicating that noncommutative space-time is visible already at the electroweak scale. This noncommutative space-time predicts the top quark mass m_t \sim 172 GeV, the Higgs mass M_H \sim 241 GeV and the existence of a vector meson and a scalar, which interact universally with the matter.

Abstract:
It is shown that the violation of unitarity observed in space/time noncommutative field theories is due to an improper definition of quantum field theory on noncommutative spacetime.

Abstract:
We study the perturbative unitarity of noncommutative scalar field theories. Field theories with space-time noncommutativity do not have a unitary S-matrix. 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 space-time noncommutative field theory is an appropriate description of string theory. Whenever space-time noncommutative field theory becomes relevant massive open string states cannot be neglected.

Abstract:
By exploring a possible physical realisation of the geometric concept of noncommutative tangent bundle, we outline an axiomatic quantum picture of space as topological manifold and time as a count of its reconfiguration events.

Abstract:
In this paper, we construct for the ?rst time the non-commutative fluid with the deformed Poincare invariance. To this end, the realization formalism of the noncommutative spaces is employed and the results are particularized to the Snyder space. The non-commutative fluid generalizes the fluid model in the action functional formulation to the noncommutative space. The fluid equations of motion and the conserved energy-momentum tensor are obtained.

Abstract:
We study the Compton scattering in the noncommutative counter part of QED (NC QED). Interactions in NC QED have momentum dependent phase factors and the gauge fields have Yang Mills type couplings, this modifies the cross sections and are different from the commuting Standard Model. Collider signals of noncommutative space-time are studied at the Next Linear Collider (NLC) operating in the $e \gamma$ mode. Results for different polarised cases are presented and it is shown that the Compton process can probe the noncommutative scale in the range of 1 - 2.5 TeV for typical proposed NLC energies.

Abstract:
We investigate a particle velocity in the $\kappa$-Minkowski space-time, which is one of the realization of a noncommutative space-time. We emphasize that arrival time analyses by high-energy $\gamma$-rays or neutrinos, which have been considered as powerful tools to restrict the violation of Lorentz invariance, are not effective to detect space-time noncommutativity. In contrast with these examples, we point out a possibility that {\it low-energy massive particles} play an important role to detect it.

Abstract:
The power spectra of the scalar and tensor perturbations in the noncommutative k-inflation model are calculated in this paper. In this model, all the modes created when the stringy space-time uncertainty relation is satisfied are generated inside the sound/Hubble horizon during inflation for the scalar/tensor perturbations. It turns out that a linear term describing the noncommutative space-time effect contributes to the power spectra of the scalar and tensor perturbations. Confronting the general noncommutative k-inflation model with latest results from \textit{Planck} and BICEP2, and taking $c_S$ and $\lambda$ as free parameters, we find that it is well consistent with observations. However, for the two specific models, i.e. the tachyon and DBI inflation models, it is found that the DBI model is not favored, while the tachyon model lies inside the $1\sigma$ contour, if the e-folds number is assumed to be around $50\sim60$.

Abstract:
Space-time coordinates in DSR theories with two invariant scales based on a dispersion relation with an energy independent speed of light are introduced by the demand, that boost and rotation generators are invariant under a transformation from SR to DSR variables. This turns out to be equivalent to a recent suggestion postulating the existence of plane wave solutions in DSR theories. The momentum space representation of coordinates is derived, yielding a noncommutative space-time and the deformed algebra.

Abstract:
As argued previously, amplitudes of quantum field theories on noncommutative space and time cannot be computed using naive path integral Feynman rules. One of the proposals is to use the Gell-Mann--Low formula with time-ordering applied before performing the integrations. We point out that the previously given prescription should rather be regarded as an interaction point time-ordering. Causality is explicitly violated inside the region of interaction. It is nevertheless a consistent procedure, which seems to be related to the interaction picture of quantum mechanics. In this framework we compute the one-loop self-energy for a space/time noncommutative \phi^4 theory. Although in all intermediate steps only three-momenta play a role, the final result is manifestly Lorentz covariant and agrees with the naive calculation. Deriving the Feynman rules for general graphs, we show, however, that such a picture holds for tadpole lines only.
