Fundamental Constants in Effective Theory
Abstract
In the discussion between L.B. Okun, G. Veneziano, and M.J. Duff concerning the number of fundamental dimensionful constants in physics [9], they advocated, respectively, 3, 2, and 0 fundamental constants. Here, we consider this problem with an example of effective relativistic quantum field theory, which emerges in the lowenergy corner of quantum liquids and which reproduces many features of our physics, including Lorentz invariance, chiral fermions, gauge fields, and dynamical gravity.
