A Theory of Gravity Based on Quantum Clocks and Moving Space

Authors: E.P.J. de Haas
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

A theory of gravity based on quantum clocks and moving space is proposed. The theory is based on the hypothesis of the quantum clock equivalence principle (QCEP): it is impossible for a locally isolated observer to distinguish between a red-shift in a moving inertial frame of reference and a red-shift in a reference frame that is at rest in a field of gravity, if the red-shift is all the information he has. This allows us to formulate a time-dilatation measurement based definition of the speed of space in a gravity field. The QCEP is then used to predict the frequency shift of a quantum clock at rest in a g-field, moving in a closed circular orbit and in free fall. The cosmological and quantum gravitational possibilities of the QCEP hypothesis are shortly mentioned.

Biquaternion Formulation of Relativistic Tensor Dynamics

Authors: E.P.J. de Haas
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

In this paper we show how relativistic tensor dynamics and relativistic electrodynamics can be formulated in a bi-quaternion tensor language. The treatment is restricted to mathematical physics, known facts as the Lorentz Force Law and the Lagrange Equation are presented in a relatively new formalism. The goal is to fuse anti-symmetric tensor dynamics, as used for example in relativistic electrodynamics, and symmetric tensor dynamics, as used for example in introductions to general relativity, into one single formalism: a specific kind of biquaternion tensor calculus.

A Remark on an Ansatz by M.W. Evans and the so-Called Einstein-Cartan-Evans Unified Field Theory

Authors: Friedrich W. Hehl
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

M.W. Evans tried to relate the electromagnetic field strength to the torsion of a Riemann-Cartan spacetime. We show that this ansatz is untenable for at least two reasons: (i) Geometry: Torsion is related to the (external) translation group and cannot be linked to an internal group, like the U(1) group of electrodynamics. (ii) Electrodynamics: The electromagnetic field strength as a 2-form carries 6 independent components, whereas Evans' electromagnetic construct Fα is a vector-valued 2-form with 24 independent components. This doesn't match. One of these reasons is already enough to disprove the ansatz of Evans.

From Van Der Waals Gas to CMBR Spectrum, Elementary Particles, and Lenr: a Hypothesis

Authors: V. Christianto
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

In recent years there are some authors suggesting that the origin of dark energy, quintessence etc. can be related to Van der Waals force-type interaction at cosmic scale. [1][2][3] Interestingly, in this regards, this proposition also reminds us to Prof. Castro-Granik's idea sometime ago that if we indeed live in the Cantorian spacetime Universe [5], then the effect would be as if the Universe resembles a large Bose-Einstein condensate.
