We introduce the concept of kinematical algebras and their associated homogeneous spaces where our physical theories live. Some of these algebras are related via Lie algebra contraction. We develop a framework that captures systematically the corrections to the contraction procedure, for example the non-relativistic corrections of order v/c, by introducing new infinite-dimensional kinematical algebras. We consider different realizations of these algebras.
Speaker will be presenting live from the Higgs Centre seminar room.
