Theories with maximal acceleration

Research output: Contribution to journalReview articlepeer-review


Maximal accelerations are related to the existence of a minimal time for a given physical system. Such a minimal time can be either an intrinsic timescale of the system or connected to a quantum gravity induced ultraviolet cutoff. In this paper, we pedagogically introduce the four major formulations for kinematics accounting for a maximal acceleration. Some phenomenological repercussions are offered as hints for future investigations.
