Generalized uncertainty principle and Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity

By Yun Soo Myung

Abstract

We explore a connection between generalized uncertainty principle (GUP) and modified Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz (HL) gravity. The GUP density function may be replaced by the cutoff function for the renormalization group of modified Ho\v{r}ava-Lifshitz gravity. We find the GUP-corrected graviton propagators and compare these with tensor propagators in the HL gravity. Two are qualitatively similar, but the $p^5$-term arisen from Cotton tensor is missed in the GUP-corrected graviton propagator.Comment: 14 pages, 2 figures, version to appear in PL
