The differential cross section for Moller scattering with Lorentz-violating parameter at finite temperature is calculated.
Lorentz-Violating Corrections to Moller Scattering at Finite Temperature
The Lagrangian that describes the Moller scattering is given by
There are two Feynman diagrams that describe the Moller scattering, the t-channel and the u-channel, as represented in Figure 1.
This result shows that corrections for Moller scattering due to Lorentz violation at finite temperature are altered.
Thus, while small, Lorentz-violating terms do not contradict any experimental measurements of the Moller scattering at zero temperature.
In this paper, the nonminimal coupling term, CPT-odd term, is used to calculate the Lorentz-violating corrections to Moller scattering at finite temperature.
