**ABSTRACT:**The focus of the present thesis is on the analysis of gauge symmetry and its various impacts on gauge theories. In the first part of this thesis, we have studied different aspects of symmetries in connection with various field and string theoretic models. The manifestations of gauge symmetries and their interconnection with the diffeomorphism invariances have been discussed in the context of different generally covariant models like string, membrane, $p-$brane and metric gravity. Analysis of interacting string with proper inclusion of the stringy boundary conditions led to the noncommutative nature of the string coordinates. In the second part of the thesis the emphasis was primarily on the impact of gauge symmetries on the field theories defined over noncommutative space-time. The correspondence between the NC gauge symmetry and ordinary gauge symmetry manifest by Seiberg--Witten maps between the NC gauge fields and ordinary gauge fields have been used to construct equivalent commutative theories describing the original NC gauge theories. Using this commutative equivalent approach we have analysed several NC gauge field theories of current interest. A upper-bound on the time-space noncommutative parameter has also been worked out.

**ABSTRACT:**A thorough analysis of Galilean symmetries for the gravitational well problem on a noncommutative plane is presented. A complete closure of the one-parameter centrally extended Galilean algebra is realised for the model. This implies that the field theoretic model constructed to describe noncommutative gravitational quantum well in \cite{ani} is indeed independent of the coordinate choice. Hence the energy spectrum predicted by the model can be associated with the experimental results to establish the upper-bound on time-space noncommutative parameter. Interestingly, noncommutativity is shown to increase the gravitational pull on the neutron trapped in the gravitational well.Physical review D: Particles and fields 03/2008; -
##### Article: Noncommutative Solitons of Gravity

[Show abstract] [Hide abstract]

**ABSTRACT:**We investigate a three-dimensional gravitational theory on a noncommutative space which has a cosmological constant term only. We found various kinds of nontrivial solutions, by applying a similar technique which was used to seek noncommutative solitons in noncommutative scalar field theories. Some of those solutions correspond to bubbles of spacetimes, or represent dimensional reduction. The solution which interpolates $G_{\mu\nu}=0$ and Minkowski metric is also found. All solutions we obtained are non-perturbative in the noncommutative parameter $\theta$, therefore they are different from solutions found in other contexts of noncommutative theory of gravity and would have a close relation to quantum gravity.
