"Lorentz Invariance Violation: A bridge from theory to experiment"

Leyre Nogués

(Institut de Física d'Altes Energies, IFAE)

Lorentz Invariance Violation appears in some attempts of treating Quantum Gravity and General Relativity under a common theoretical framework. Even though this goal gives place to a wide diversity of Theoretical approaches, some of them attract the attention of the Experimental community that, thanks to the improved sensitivity of the current generation of instruments, sees a possibility to test and constrain the potential observable deviations that LIV could bring. This talk aims to give a short introduction to the LIV phenomenology, giving an overview on the different phenomena that allow to search for LIV experimentally. The talk will focus finally on the Time-Of-Flight studies, going through the different methodologies to extract the observable LIV from the data and the constraints set so far
