Breaking Relativity: the Why and How of Lorentz Violation

Lorentz invariance, the symmetry behind special relativity, lies at the foundations of all known physics. However, attempts to formulate an ultimate theory of everything suggest that Lorentz invariance may be slightly broken. This idea has led to numerous searches for Lorentz violation, ranging from modern versions of the classic Michelson-Morley experiment to tests involving the elusive neutrino. These experiments are probing nature at the very limits of our understanding and may help uncover some of the Universe's biggest secrets.
