On the Cosmological Variation of the Fine Structure Constant

Authors: Fran De Aquino

Recently, evidence indicating cosmological variations of the fine structure constant, alpha, has been reported. This result led to the conclusion that possibly the physical constants and the laws of physics vary throughout the universe. However, it will be shown here that variations in the value of the elementary electric charge, e, can occur under specific conditions, consequently producing variations in the value of alpha.
