About the precise form of M8-H duality

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

The precise form of M8-H duality (see this, this, and this) has remained open since one consider several variants for the duality in M4⊂ M8=M4× E4 degrees of freedom mapped to M4⊂ M4× CP2 degrees of freedom.

The first problem is that the momenta at the M8 side are complex unlike the space-time points at the H side. The basic condition comes from the Uncertainty Principle in semiclassical form but does not complettessellationely fix the duality.

  1. If the momenta are real, the simplest option is that the mass shell is mapped to a time shell a=heff/m, where a is light-cone proper time. For physical states the momenta are real by Galois confinement and have integer components when the momentum scale is defined by causal diamond (CD). For virtual fermions, the momenta are assumed to be algebraic integers and can be complex. The question is whether one should apply M8-H a duality only too the real momenta of physical states or also the virtual momenta.
  2. For virtual momenta the M8-H duality must be consistent with that for real momenta and the simplest option is that one projects the real part of the virtual momentum and applies M8-H duality to it. The square mR2 for the real part Re(p) of momentum however varies for the points on the complex mass shell since only the real part Re(m2) of mass squared is constant at the complex mass shell. If 3-momenta are real, one has (Re(p))2= Re(p0)2 -p32=mR2 and is not constant and in general larger than Re(p2)=Re(p0)2-Im(p0)2 -p32=Re(m2). Should one use mR2 or Re(m2) in M8-H duality?

Re(m2) is constant at M8 side in accordance with the definition of mass shell. The value of a2= heff2(mR2)/Re(m2)2 at H side varies and has a width defined by the variation of Im(p0) at the points of the mass shell. mR2 is not constant at the M8 side. This might relate to the fact that particle masses have a width and would relate Im(p0 to a physical observable. The time shell is given by a2= heff2/mR2 and is genuine H3. The model for the gravitational hum (see this) provides another problem, which can serve as an additional guideline.

  1. The model was based on gravitational diffraction in the tessellation defined by a discrete subgroup of SL(2,C). This tessellation is a hyperbolic analog of a lattice in E3 with a discrete translation group replaced with a discrete subgroup Γ of the Lorentz group or its covering SL(2,C). The matrix elements of the matrices in Γ should belong to the extension of rationals defined by the polynomial P defining the space-time surface by M8-H duality.
  2. For ordinary lattices, the reciprocal lattice assigns to a spatial lattice a momentum space lattice, which automatically satisfies the constraint from the Uncertainty Principle. Could the notion of the reciprocal lattice generalize to H3? What is needed are 3 basis vectors (at least) characterizing the position of a fundamental region and having components that must belong to the algebraic extension of rationals considered. The application of Γ would then produce the entire lattice. In this case a linear superposition of lattice vectors is not satisfied.
  3. The (at least) 3 basic 3-vectors p3,i need not be orthogonal or have the same length. They should have components, which are algebraic integers in the extension of rationals defined by P. M4⊃ H3 is a subspace of complexified quaternions with the space-like part of momentum vector, which is imaginary with respect to commuting imaginary unit i to transform the algebraic scalar product (no conjugation with respect to i). The ordinary cross product appearing in the definition of the reciprocal lattice appears in the quaternionic product. This suggests that the (at least) 3 reciprocal vectors p3,i as M4 projections of four-momentum vectors are proportional to the cross products of the basis vectors apart from a normalization factor determined by the condition that the light-cone proper time is proportional to the inverse of mass. One would have x3i∝ εijkp3,j× p3,kk.
  4. The conditions have a similar form independently of whether one takes a mass squared parameter, call it M2 to be M2=Re(m2) or M2=mR2. The time components of the momentum vectors pi associated with p3,i, which are assumed to be real, are determined by the mass shell condition Re(p0,i)2-Im(p0,i)2- Re(pi2) =Re(m2). One must use the real projection of the time component. The image of the energy is time coordinate t0i= heffp0i/M2. Spatial coordinates in M4 must obey similar formula, which implies the length of the image vector is r= heff×p3,i/M2 so that time shell condition reas t2-r2= heff2/M2 and conforms with the Uncertainty Principle.
  5. If one can satisfy these conditions for the 3 (at least) reciprocal vectors with suitable normalization factors ki, the action by Γ on this triplet guarantees the on mass shell condition for the entire tessellation. The most general ansatz for the lattice vectors at H side is x3i= heff k(i) εijkp3,j× p3,k/M2. The conditions give k(1)= p1/p2p3, k(2)= p2/p3p1, and k(3)= p3/p1p2. Here one must be very careful with what one means with pi. Number theoretic purely algebraic norm proportional to the commuting imaginary unit i so that x3i is proportional to i so that the number theoretic scale product reduces at H side to the scalar product defined by Minkowski metric.
  6. Which option is correct: M2=Re(m2) or M2=mR2? For the first option the discretized real mass shell mR2 is deformed and might be essential for having a non-trivial number theoretical holography implying by M8-H duality a non-trivial holography at H side. One can however defend the second option by non-trivial holography at H side.
