Superluminal Neutrinos in Matter and Causality

Authors: B.D.O. Adams

In the presence of a strong electric or magnetic field, quantum field theory modifies the speed of light. We see that the same effect can explain the recent observation of neutrinos travelling faster than the speed of light in the vacuum from the CERN collider to the OPERA neutrino detector in Gran Sasso. We investigate the causality of the situation, and show that a form of electrical induction between very fast moving bodies will prevent closed timelike loops from occuring.
