The Triality of Electromagnetic-Condensational Waves in a Gas-Like Ether

Authors: C. K. Thornhill
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

In a gas-like ether, the duality between the oscillating electric and magnetic fields, which are transverse to the direction of propagation of electromagnetic waves, becomes a triality with the longitudinal oscillations of motion of the ether, if electric field, magnetic field and motion are coexistent and mutually perpendicular. It must be shown, therefore, that if electromagnetic waves comprise also longitudinal condensational oscillations of a gas-like ether, analogous to sound waves in a material gas, then all three aspects of such waves must propagate together along identical wave-fronts. To this end, the full characteristic hyperconoids are derived for the equations governing the motion and the electric and magnetic field-strengths in a gas-like ether, in three space variables and time. It is shown that they are, in fact, identical. The equations governing the motion and the electric and magnetic field-strengths in such an ether, and their common characteristic hyperconoid, are all invariant under Galilean transformation.

The Refraction of Light in Stationary and Moving Refractive Media

Authors: C. K. Thornhill
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

A new theory of the refraction of light is presented, using the mathematical fact that the equations of acoustics and optics are identical and that light may therefore be treated as waves in a fluid ether. Light waves are penetrated by the more slowly moving constituents of a refractive medium and so the rays behind them are perturbed and made wavy as they are diffracted around material particles. The arc-length along a wavy ray is thus increased by a factor...

The Kinetic Theory of Electromagnetic Radiation

Authors: C. K. Thornhill
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

It is shown that Planck's energy distribution for a black-body radiation field can be simply derived for a gas-like ether with Maxwellian statistics. The gas consists of an infinite variety of particles, whose masses are integral multiples n of the mass of the unit particle, the abundance of n-particles being proportional to...

Begin the Adventure How to Break the Light Barrier by A.d. 2070

Authors: Homer B. Tilton, Florentin Smarandache
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

For most of the 20th century, both relativity and star travel fascinated this writer. The reasons Albert Einstein concluded there is an absolute barrier at the speed of light seemed at first clear, then later not so clear upon closer examination. "The speed of light relative to what?" I often asked anyone who would listen. The common response was, "Light needs no specification of that kind; its speed is the same no matter who measures it." "That's true." I would respond; "That's just the second postulate of special relativity which is not in doubt; but that postulate applies to light, and we're talking about rocketships here." However it seemed that no one understood what I was saying. By referring to the universal constant c= 299.792 458 megameters per second as "the speed of light," we paint ourselves into a logical corner in which light is automatically taken as the subject of discussion even when it is not. The careful reader will know not to immediately think "light" when he hears or reads "the speed of light." But it is better to have a neutral name for that universal constant. It has been called the Lorentz speed; Ignazio Ciufolini & John Archibald Wheeler (1995) called it the characteristic speed of space, and they were then able to apply it to all "primordial forces" whether electromagnetic or gravitational or other (what other, C&W did not say).

More About the Claimed Identity Between Inertial Mass and Gravitational Mass

Authors: Raul A. Rapacioli
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Following the work recently developed by Guala-Valverde in this journal, we search for the conditions which constrain the choice of arbitrary sets of standards in order to make inertial mass numerically equal to gravitational mass.

Theoretical Derivation to Newton's Second Law And the Coulomb Law

Authors: Fu Yuhua
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

To discuss the possibility of deriving the law of Coulomb and Newton's second law theoretically, according to the law of conservation of energy, the variable dimension fractal method is developed, and used to improved Newton's second law and the law of Coulomb in an example (a small electrification ball moves down along a long incline within the electric field due to an electrification globe). ...

Authors: P. A. LaViolette
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

The novel physics methodology of subquantum kinetics predicted in 1980 that photons should blueshift their frequency at a rate that varies directly with negative gravitational potential, the rate of blueshifting for photons traveling between Earth and Jupiter having been estimated to average approximately...

The Electric Charge and Magnetization Distribution of the Nucleon: A Turing Wave Pattern?

Authors: Paul A. LaViolette
Comments: recovered from sciprint.org

Recent fits to nucleon form factor data show that the nucleon core has a Gaussian charge density distribution and peripheral periodicity of declining amplitude whose wavelength approximates the particle's Compton wavelength. This periodic feature was not anticipated by quark models, but its characteristics do match those of a three-dimensional Turing wave pattern produced in certain nonlinear reaction-diffusion systems. Almost three decades prior to these observational findings, the novel physics methodology of subquantum kinetics had predicted this type of electric field distribution for the nucleon, theorizing that subatomic particles may be Turing patterns or dissipative structures that emerge from an underlying reaction-diffusion matrix. This model, which is now confirmed by particle scattering data, provides new insights into the origin of charge, spin, nuclear binding, particle diffraction and electron orbital quantization.

Nonlinear Classical Fields

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

We regard a classical field as medium. Then additional parameter is appearing. It is the local fourvelocity vector of field. If the one itself regard as potential of same field then all field's self energies became finite. As examples electromagnetic, mechanical, pionic, and somewhat gluonic fields are regarding
