CPT-Violating Gravitational Orbital Perturbations

Don Colladay

Published 2019-11-06Version 1

A model for spontaneous symmetry breaking using a specific form of the bumblebee model is analyzed in the context of a Schwarzschild background metric. The resulting back reaction of the symmetry-breaking field on the metric is computed to second order. Consistency with conventional (pseudo)Riemannian geometry is demonstrated. This background field is coupled to fermions via a spin-dependent CPT-violating coupling term of a type commonly considered in the Standard-Model Extension. The perturbations of various orbital trajectories are discussed. Specifically, a spin-dependent orbital velocity is found as well as a spin-dependent precession rate.
