Lorentz-invariant membranes and finite matrix approximations
2011 (English)In: Nuclear Physics B, ISSN 0550-3213, Vol. 849, no 3, 628-635 p.Article in journal (Refereed) Published
The question of Lorentz invariance for finite N approximations of relativistic membranes is addressed. We find that one of the classical manifestations of Lorentz invariance is no! possible for N x N matrices (at least when N = 2 or 3). How the symmetry is restored in the large N limit is studied numerically.
