Abstract

This project contains two research themes: one theme is dedicated to the study and development of the Horava-Lifshitz theory of Gravitation, considering consistency and dynamic quantization, while the other deals with no commutative theories applied to a classical model of statistical mechanics. The study of quantum gravity as an emerging theory is also proposed. Possible links between these effective theories are considered for the study and understanding of both. (AU)
