Binary Precession Solutions Based on Synchronized Couplings

Authors: Jamahl Peavey
Comments: 5 pages, The attached article's results were presented at Bulgaria's Sofia Technical University's "Physics Day Conference 2011"

A classical wave function is presented as an interface between a gravitational and an electromagnetic field. Binary star precessions are calculated as a best test for the most important interface in physics. Among the ten most difficult systems tested are DI Herculis, V541 Cygni and AS Camelopardalis. These systems have observed precessions which are not consistent with theoretical predictions. The precession results based on the classical wave function prove there is a fundamental relationship between Newtonian mechanics, general relativity and quantum mechanics.

Possible Explanation for Speed of Neutrinos, Faster Than Light

Authors: Janko Kokosar
Comments: 2 pages

The recent measurement of speed of muon neutrinos shows that it is possible that speed of neutrinos is faster than speed of light. Here an explanation is suggested, that this is a consequence of Scharnhorst effect. This effect shows that photons propagating through vacuum are modifying in virtual pairs electron-positron for a while and thus the measured speed of light is really lower than one maximal possible speed of light in short moments. Because neutrinos are not modifying so, author supposes that their speed is larger than speed of photons.

The Atoms of Space

Authors: Bichara Sahely
Comments: 12 Pages. typos corrected and more references added

In this brief note, it will be shown that space may have hidden properties normally attributed to elementary particles, such as mass and charge. We will also elucidate the thermodynamic properties of these atoms of space by modelling these atoms as ideal gas entities propagating disturbances at the speed of light. We have only demanded consistency in the formulas for circular motion, Einstein's mass-energy eqivalance, wave-particle duality, Planck-Einstein equation, Newton's law of universal gravitation, Schwarzschild solution of general relativity, the Reissner–Nordström metric and black hole thermodynamics. We will then use the adiabatic index formula to elucidate the degrees of freedom of these atoms of space. We will also reinterpret Einstein's theories of relativity, solve the mystery of the double slit experiment, muse on the physical nature of dark energy, and finally uncover a possible blindspot that may have hampered progress in constructing a consistent and complete theory of quantum gravity.

Relating a 10-Dimensional Model of a 'D-brane and Type I String Structure' to Space-time and Elementary Particles

Authors: Gary Heen
Comments: 22 pages.

Modern theory states that matter and energy in their most basic form exist in discrete amounts, or quanta. The author proffers that space-time also exists as discrete quanta, and derives a physical model of space-time and elementary particles. The hypothesis for this model is that the quanta for matter and space-time are convertible states of the same elementary building block composed of D-branes and Type I strings: the D-string.

The Nature of Semi-Classical Nature of Gravity Reviewed, and Can We Use a Graviton Entanglement Version of the EPR Experiment to Answer if the Graviton is Classical or Quantum in Origin?

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 85 pages. Presentation for San Marino Workshop on Astrophysics and Cosmology for Matter and Antimatter - September 5-9, 2011

We present what is relevant to squeezed states of initial space time and how that affects both the composition of relic GW, and also gravitons. A side issue to consider is if gravitons can be configured as semi classical "particles",which is akin to the Pilot model of Quantum Mechanics as embedded in a larger non linear "deterministic" background. The final part of the talk will be to examine practical testing of the EPR hypothesis, as given by B. Cocciaro, S. Faetti, L. Fronzoni, as to a lower bound for a superluminal communication signal propagating in space time, with a similar argument made between Graviton entangled states as what is done for photons.

The Derivation of the Schwarzchild Solution from a Scalar Model of Spherical Quantum Waves

Authors: Michael Harney
Comments: 4 pages

It is shown that if space is modeled as an elastic medium that propagates spherical, scalar quantumwaves, then the ratio of the square of the wave velocity to c2 reveals the same results as the familiar time dilation formula that is produced from the Schwarzchild G44 component. The Schwarzchild radius derived from the scalar-wave model is shown to be equal to the radius of the universe, implying that there are no gravitational singularities present within the radius of the universe.

Particle Count Reduction in an E8 Standard Model

Authors: J Gregory Moxness
Comments: 24 pages

By definition in Lie Algebras, all roots can be composed from either all positive or all negative combinations of their "simple roots". Taking a modified A.G. Lisi split real even E8 model with 240 fundamental physics particles associated with an extended Standard Model, a particle count reduction (from 240 fundamental particles to 8 "elemental" particles) is determined from these 8 simple roots. Interestingly, by taking account of the particle mass assignments, all known fermions {e/ν, u/d, c/s, t/b}, as well as known (plus the Lisi predicted) bosons {W/B, gluons(g), ω, eφ, xΦ} can be generated with the sum of the simple root masses being less than the resulting composite particle masses (with the exception of the four 2nd and 3rd generation lepton
