The "Missing" Measurements of the Gravitational Constant

Authors: Maurizio Michelini
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

The G measurements are made with torsion balance in "vacuum" to the aim of eliminating the air convection disturbance. Nevertheless, the accuracy of the measured G values appears unsatisfying. In 2000 J.Luo and Z.K.Hu first denounced the presence of some unknown systematic problem in high vacuum G measurement. In this work a new systematic effect is analysed which arises in calm air from the non-zero balance of the overall momentum discharged by the air molecules on the test mass in the vacuum chamber. This effect is normally negligible, but the disturbing force becomes comparable to the gravitational force when the chamber pressure drops to about 10-5 bar , at which the molecule mean free path equals the thickness of the meatus facing the test mass. At the epoch of Heyl's measurement at 1 millibar (1927), the technology of vacuum pumps reaching void levels up to 10-9 bar was developed, but this chance was not used. The recent G measurements used high vacuum techniques up to 10-10 bar and 10-11 bar, so the effect of the air meatus results very little. What happened to the "missing" measurements made at vacuum pressures in the "forbidden" interval between millibar and nanobar ? As a matter of fact, we were not able to find the related papers in the literature. This lack appears embarrassing in absence of an adequate physical explanation.

Non-Unitary Evolution in High Energy Physics: a Brief Overview

Authors: Ervin Goldfain
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Unitarity and locality are fundamental postulates of Quantum Field Theory (QFT). By construction, QFT is a replica of equilibrium thermodynamics, where evolution settles down to a steady state after all transients have vanished. Events unfolding in the TeV sector of particle physics are prone to slide outside equilibrium under the combined action of new fields and un-suppressed quantum corrections. In this region, the likely occurrence of critical behavior and the approach to scale invariance blur the distinction between "locality" and 2non-locality". We argue that a correct description of this far-from-equilibrium setting cannot be done outside nonlinear dynamics and complexity theory.
