P4_02 Lorentz Symmetry Breaking through a hypothetical Compton Effect

Rishan Dev Choudhury, Robert Savage, Thomas Rawlins, Adam G. Hammerton


Lorentz Invariance is upheld by the two postulates of special theory of relativity. This paper considers the Compton effect at very high energies and by using the Compton Effect Scattering equations and proposing the speed of light to be a function of frequency, two new events were worked out. These being: no scattered photon and a scattered photon with higher energy. These situations can be considered as verifying signatures for Lorentz Invariance Violation (LIV) in high energy regions of the Universe.
