On the Origin of Physical Dynamics

Authors: Ir J.A.J. van Leunen
Comments: 268 pages

When physics must be based on an axiomatic foundation then the law set of traditional quantum logic is a valid candidate. However, at first sight, these axioms do not treat physical fields and they do not treat dynamics. It only prescribes the static relations that exist between quantum logical propositions that treat static subjects. These subjects are considered to be physical subjects or their properties. Amongst these propositions statements exist that describe everything that can be said about the static condition of a given physical item. Such propositions represent that item.

Random Motion, Harmonic Oscillator and Dark Energy

Authors: John L. Haller Jr.
Comments: 4 pages

We explore the random motion of a quantum free particle and re-introduce an additional term to the textbook solution for the variance. Prior experiments could have missed this term yet it should be possible to test the hypothesis. A quadratic potential energy derived from the self gravitational potential of the particle is hypothesized resulting in the well known quantum harmonic oscillator in the special condition that the particle rests exactly in the ground state, i.e. hω0 = kBT Radiation is found trapped in this gravitational potential and when the particle carries the reduced Planck mass the density of radiation is exactly that of the black body. We argue this "dark" particle is responsible for the open question of dark energy and has a relic density of only 17% more than the commonly accepted value.

How Logical Foundation of Quantum Theory Derives from Foundational Anomalies in Pure Mathematics

Authors: Steve Faulkner
Comments: 17 pages

Logical foundation for quantum theory is considered. I claim that quantum theory correctly represents Nature when mathematical physics embraces and indeed features, logical anomalies inherent in pure mathematics. This approach links undecidability in arithmetic with the logic of quantum experiments. The undecidablity occupies an algebraic environment which is the missing foundation for the 3-valued logic predicted by Hans Reichenbach, shown by him to resolve `causal anomalies' of quantum mechanics, such as: inconsistency between prepared and measured states, complementarity between pairs of observables, and the EPR-paradox of action at a distance. Arithmetic basic to mathematical physics, is presented formally as a logical system consisting of axioms and propositions. Of special interest are all propositions asserting the existence of particular numbers. All numbers satisfying the axioms permeate the arithmetic indistinguishably, but these logically partition into two distinct sets: numbers whose existence the axioms determine by proof, and numbers whose existence axioms cannot determine, being neither provable nor negatable. Failure of mathematical physics to incorporate this logical distinction is seen as reason for quantum theory being logically at odds with quantum experiments. Nature is interpreted as having rules isomorphic to the abovementioned axioms with these governing arithmetical combinations of necessary and possible values or effects in experiments. Soundness and Completeness theorems from mathematical logic emerge as profoundly fundamental principles for quantum theory, making good intuitive sense of the subject.

The Stability of Electron Orbital Shells based on a Model of the Riemann-Zeta Function

Authors: Michael Harney
Comments: 3 pages

It is shown that the atomic number Z is prime at the beginning of the each s1, p1, d1, and f1 energy levels of electrons, with some fluctuation in the actinide and lanthanide series. The periodic prime number boundary of s1, p1, d1, and f1 is postulated to occur because of stability of Schrodinger's wave equation due to a fundamental relationship with the Riemann-Zeta function.
