Mechanical Stresses Produced by a Light Beam

Authors: Radi I. Khrapko
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

A circularly polarized electromagnetic beam is considered, which is absorbed by a plane, and the mechanical stress produced in the plane by the beam is calculated. It is shown that the central part of the beam produces a torque at the central region of the plane due to the spin of the beam, and the wall of the beam produces an additional torque due to orbital angular momentum of the beam. The total torque acting on the plane equals two power of the beam divided by the frequency. This fact contradicts the standard electrodynamics, which predicts the torque equals power of the beam divided by frequency, and means the electrodynamics is incomplete. An introducing of the spin tensor corrects the electrodynamics.

Langlands Program and TGD

Authors: M. Pitkanen
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Number theoretic Langlands program can be seen as an attempt to unify number theory on one hand and theory of representations of reductive Lie groups on the other hand. So called automorphic functions to which various zeta functions are closely related define the common denominator. Geometric Langlands program tries to achieve a similar conceptual unification in the case of function fields. This program has caught the interest of physicists during last years.

Einstein Versus the Physical Review on Gravitational Waves and the Principle of Causality

Authors: C. Y. Lo
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Einstein & Rosen discovered the non-existence of wave solutions. However, the Physical Review found that the singulari-ties they discovered are removable. Since the editorial accepted wave solutions with unbounded amplitude, Einstein's require-ment on weak gravity was implicitly rejected in disagreement with general relativity. On the other hand, from the Hulse-Taylor binary pulsars experiment, it has been found that the nonexistence of gravitational wave solution is due to a violation of the principle of causality. It will be shown that such a violation can be seen directly from the cylindrical "waves" of Einstein and Rosen. The root of such an error lasting more than half a century is due to that the editorial of Physical Review and others did not understand Einstein's equivalence principle and incorrectly regarded it as essentially the same as Pauli's version. Conse-quently, they do not understand a basic principle in science, the principle of causality adequately. Moreover, the rejection of Einstein's requirement on weak gravity was based on the invalid interim "covariance principle". Currently, misinterpretations of Einstein's equivalence principle and the acceptance of the invalid "covariance principle", in effect, have developed into efforts conspired to give deceptive predictions.

Nuclear String Hypothesis

Authors: M. Pitkanen
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Nuclear string hypothesis is one of the most dramatic almost-predictions of TGD. The hypothesis in its original form assumes that nucleons inside nucleus form closed nuclear strings with neighboring nuclei of the string connected by exotic meson bonds consisting of color magnetic flux tube with quark and anti-quark at its ends. The lengths of flux tubes correspond to the p-adic length scale of electron and therefore the mass scale of the exotic mesons is around 1 MeV in accordance with the general scale of nuclear binding energies. The long lengths of em flux tubes increase the distance between nucleons and reduce Coulomb repulsion. A fractally scaled up variant of ordinary QCD with respect to p-adic length scale would be in question and the usual wisdom about ordinary pions and other mesons as the origin of nuclear force would be simply wrong in TGD framework as the large mass scale of ordinary pion indeed suggests.

Quaternion Relativity, Ehrenfest Paradox, and Finsler-Berwald Metric: Reply to "notes on Pioneer Anomaly Explanation by Satellite-Shift Formula of Quaternion Relativity"

Authors: V. Christianto, F. Smarandache
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

In the present article we would like to make a few comments on a recent paper by A. Yefremov in this journal [1]. It is interesting to note here that he concludes his analysis by pointing out that using full machinery of Quaternion Relativity it is possible to explain Pioneer XI anomaly with excellent agreement compared with observed data, and explain around 45% of Pioneer X anomalous acceleration. We argue that perhaps it will be necessary to consider extension of Lorentz transformation to H4 of Finsler-Berwald metric, as discussed by a number of authors in the past few years. In this regard, it would be interesting to see if the use of extended Lorentz transformation could also elucidate the long-lasting problem known as Ehrenfest paradox. Further observation is of course recommended in order to refute or verify this proposition.
