Finite entanglement entropy and spectral dimension in quantum gravity
/ Arzano, Michele ; Calcagni, Gianluca
What are the conditions on a field theoretic model leading to a finite entanglement entropy density? We prove two very general results: (1) Ultraviolet finiteness of a theory does not guarantee finiteness of the entropy density; (2) If the spectral dimension of the spatial boundary across which the entropy is calculated is nonnegative at all scales, then the entanglement entropy cannot be finite.

Relativistic Planckscale polymer
/ AmelinoCamelia, Giovanni ; Arzano, Michele ; Da Silva, Malú Maira ; OrozcoBorunda, Daniel H.
Polymer quantum mechanics has been studied as a simplified picture that reflects some of the key properties of Loop Quantum Gravity; however, while the fate of relativistic symmetries in Loop Quantum Gravity is still not established, it is usually assumed that the discrete polymer structure should lead to a breakdown of relativistic symmetries.

Planckscale dimensional reduction without a preferred frame
/ AmelinoCamelia, Giovanni ; Arzano, Michele ; Gubitosi, Giulia ; Magueijo, João
Several approaches to quantum gravity suggest that the standard description of spacetime as probed at lowenergy, with four dimensions, is replaced in the Planckian regime by a spacetime with a spectral dimension of two. [...]
