Noncommutative Geometry in the LHCEra
Abstract
Noncommutative geometry allows to unify the basic building blocks of particle physics, YangMillsHiggs theory and General relativity, into a single geometrical framework. The resulting effective theory constrains the couplings of the particle model and reduces the number of degrees of freedom. After briefly introducing the basic ideas of noncommutative geometry, I will present its predictions for the Standard Model and the few known models beyond the Standard Model. Most of these models, including the Standard Model, are now ruled out by LHC data. But interesting extensions of the Standard Model which agree with the presumed Standard Model Scalar mass and predict new particles are still very much alive and await further experimental data.
