Lorentz and CPT Symmetries in DSR

Part of the Fundamental Theories of Physics book series (FTPH, volume 157)

One of the fundamental teachings of Einstein’s relativity theories is that the geometry of the (4D) space–time is globally curved (Riemannian) and locally flat (Minkowskian). This implies the existence of a local frame in which Special Relativity (SR) strictly holds for nongravitational interactions. Such a property is referred to as local Lorentz invariance (LLI) (distinct in principle from local position invariance, LPI, i.e., the independence of such a local Lorentzian frame from space–time position).
