Abstract: Information measures for relativistic quantum spinors are constructed to satisfy various postulated properties such as normalization invariance and positivity. Those measures are then used to motivate generalized Lagrangians meant to probe shorter distance physics within the maximum uncertainty framework. The modified evolution equations that follow are necessarily nonlinear and simultaneously violate Lorentz invariance, supporting previous heuristic arguments linking quantum nonlinearity with Lorentz violation. The nonlinear equations also break discrete symmetries. We discuss the implications of our results for physics in the neutrino sector and cosmology. © 2011 World Scientific Publishing Company.
