Virtual extra dimensions from unparticle fields

Recording Details

PIRSA Number: 


The phenomenology of TeV-scale physics can be modified by the existence of scale-invariant \'unparticle\' fields that can couple to the standard model sector. In particular, it has been shown that unparticles can alter gravitational interactions in a similar fashion to extra dimensions. Observable results from this mechanism -- most notably mini-black hole formation -- will be discussed, and methods of differentiating unparticles from extra dimensional models will be addressed.
