Arithmetic Information in Particle Mixing

Authors: M. D. Sheppeard
Comments: 8 Pages.

Quantum information theory motivates certain choices for parameterizations of the CKM and MNS mixing matrices. In particular, we consider the rephasing invariant parameterization of Kuo and Lee, which is given by a sum of real circulants. Noting the relation of this parameterization to complex rotation matrices we find a potential reduction in the degrees of freedom required for the CKM matrix.

What Causes The Mass To Be Deficit Inside A Nucleus?

Authors: Karunakar Marasakatla
Comments: 7 Pages. This article has been published in the Focus Issue (Part-II) of Prespacetime Journal on Cosmology & Gravity (Vol. 1, Issue. 9), pp. 1418-1424, November 2010.

There is ample amount of ambiguity regarding the concept of mass in present principles of physics. The mass of a gas nebula will be measured as the combined mass of all the atoms within that nebula. The only option for the measurement of mass of the same nebula when it collapses to a neutron star is by combining the mass of all the neutron particles. These two values of mass for the same object will never be the same. This is, in fact, against the definition of mass which states that the mass of an object is a fixed amount irrespective of the size of the object. It appears that our understanding of mass and the way we measure it is flawed. All the observations demonstrate that there will be deficit or gain in the mass of an object when there is a change in the volume of that object. An object measures more mass when the volume of the object was decreased. A neutron star is a compact form of the gas nebula from which it was collapsed, therefore the neutron star measures more mass or gravity than the gas nebula. A nucleus measures more gravity when all the particles were packed together in a small volume. The cause for the deficit of mass inside a nucleus is the increase in volume in which the particles were occupied.

The Weight Change of a Body in Connection with the Electrical Tension

Authors: H.-J. Hochecker
Comments: 3 Pages.

I stick metal foil on an a 1 square meter large and 10 kilograms heavy dielectric so that a condenser is build. By putting a tension of 10 kV on the condenser or by short-circuiting it I measure a real reduction of the weight of about 0.1 grams each time. This result confirms my theoretical conclusion which says that the weight of a body is related with the movements of its charges (protons and electrons).
