"Spacetime symmetry and gravity"

Q. Bailey

In recent decades, there has been a dramatic increase in high-precision tests of spacetime symmetries, including local Lorentz invariance. The motivation for this area of research is partly the exciting possibility that measurable signals from an underlying unified theory may include tiny violations of spacetime symmetries. In this talk, I discuss this motivation, theoretical issues with spacetime symmetry violations, and a survey of the experimental and observational spacetime symmetry tests.
