The Deutsch-Jozsa Algorithm May Improve Quantum Key Distribution

Authors: Koji Nagata, Tadao Nakamura
Comments: 4 Pages.

We review the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm. We suggest that the Deutsch-Jozsa algorithm may improve quantum key distribution. Alice sends input $N$ partite uncorrelated state to a black box. Bob measures output state. Now, Alice and Bob has promised to use a function $f$ which is of one of two kinds; either the value of $f$ is constant or balanced. To Eve, it is secret. Alice's and Bob's goal is to determine with certainty whether they have chosen a constant or a balanced function. Alice and Bob get one bit if they determine the function $f$. The speed to get one bit improves by a factor of $2^{N}$. This may improve the speed to establish quantum key distribution by a factor of $2^{N}$.

The Domain Theory

Authors: Asim M. Babikr
Comments: 12 Pages.

● The theory in this stage is merely a proposal, an attempt to start looking and find the missing variables of Quantum Mechanics raised by Einstein in his papers, where he stated that "Quantum Mechanics is correct indeed, but it is not the complete way of describing reality", we try to continue after his footsteps here. ● I am not saying or considering the theory as an empirical fact yet, -even if the style of writing would give such an impression, the style meant to help readers to live the possibility of the hypothesis and also for the purpose of convergence of views- but what I'm really saying, it deserves the investigation. ● The theory is intending to build upon the current theories and complete them, and it is not intending to replace them.

On the Electrino Mass

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 3 Pages.

This paper explores the exponential formula for the fine-structure constant that I published in a previous paper entitled: Exponential Formula for the Fine Structure Constant. Unlike the formula presented there, this paper introduces an exact formula in terms of the masses of the two lightest leptons: the electron and the electrino (new lepton); and the lightest baryons: the neutron and the proton. The electrino is a new lepton predicted by the author in a previous paper entitled: Is the Electron Unstable?. This investigation suggests that the mass of this particle, if exists, is 529.3 times lighter than that of the electron.

Laser Cooled Atoms, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle and A Proposal of New Quantum Mechanical Experiments

Authors: Hasmukh K. Tank
Comments: Single-page Note

According to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, both, position and momentum of a particle, cannot be known with ultimate accuracy; the product: Δ x . Δ p > h . Whereas in the case of Laser-cooled atoms, we know that velocity of the particle is close to zero; and its position x is so perfectly known, that an atom is said to be held in Laser forceps. These experiments show that both position and momentum of atoms are accurately knowable! Similarly, when momentum of an atom is zero, the wavelength of its de Broglie wave is very very long; and according to quantum-mechanical interpretation, the atom is likely to be detected anywhere within its de Broglie wavelength, with higher probability at the peaks of the wave. Whereas the experiments with Laser-cooled atoms show that the atom is confined precisely within the Laser forceps. To avoid this anomaly, new experiment is proposed here in which, instead of quantum mechanical waves, which have wavelength h / m v , corresponding to phase velocity of the wave, we can let the waves corresponding to group-velocity, of the wavelength h v / m c^2 , interfere in double-slit interference experiment. And we can expect that a particle may deterministically tunnel from one peak of the group-wave to next peak of the group wave; and can be detected at predictable points. Detailed description will follow soon.

Spiral Structure of Elementary Particles Analogous to Sea Shells: a Mathematical Description

Authors: Suraj Kumar
Comments: 7 Pages.

In this paper we create a self similar analogous image of spiral structure of elementary particles with that of sea shells, using the mathematical description of pigmentation pattern of sea shells, which describes the various potentials of the spiral structure of elementary particles. It also introduces the sea shells analogous parameters for spiral structure of elementary particles for quantising the property of the elementary particles. It applies the Reaction-Diffusion equation for Activator-Inhibitor model to produce the ingredient activated potential which once after the formation of the spiral structure of elementary particles is being described by the Activator- Substrate model.

On value of David Bohm’s Quantum Mechanics

Authors: Dmitri Martila
Comments: 3 Pages.

The Templeton Prize winner wrote: „In the second half of the eighteenth century, the deterministic character of Newton’s equations encouraged many people to see the physical world in strictly mechanical terms, as if the universe is a gigantic piece of cosmic clockwork.” Such wrong view comes from the believe, that the energy and momentum are always conserve.

Is the Electron Unstable?

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 6 Pages.

The problem I shall address in this paper is concerned with the mean lifetimes of leptons. After proposing a formula for the lifetime of the tau particle and following two rules, I build a formula for the lifetime of the muon. Based on these two formulas and based on the same rules, I derived the formula for the mean lifetime of the electron. The formula I found through this extrapolation process indicates that the electron is unstable and that its mean lifetime is, approximately, (π /2)×10^90 years, which is about 10^80 times the age of the universe. Thus according to this formulation the lifetime of the electron is extraordinarily long but not infinite as previously thought.

Anthropic Principle

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 19 Pages.

For nearly half a century, theoretical physicists have made a series of discoveries that certain constants in fundamental physics seem extraordinarily fine-tuned to allow for the emergence of a life-enabling universe. [9] From the standpoint of physics, there is one essential difference between living things and inanimate clumps of carbon atoms: The former tend to be much better at capturing energy from their environment and dissipating that energy as heat. [8] This paper contains the review of quantum entanglement investigations in living systems, and in the quantum mechanically modeled photoactive prebiotic kernel systems. [7] The human body is a constant flux of thousands of chemical/biological interactions and processes connecting molecules, cells, organs, and fluids, throughout the brain, body, and nervous system. Up until recently it was thought that all these interactions operated in a linear sequence, passing on information much like a runner passing the baton to the next runner. However, the latest findings in quantum biology and biophysics have discovered that there is in fact a tremendous degree of coherence within all living systems. The accelerating electrons explain not only the Maxwell Equations and the Special Relativity, but the Heisenberg Uncertainty Relation, the Wave-Particle Duality and the electron’s spin also, building the Bridge between the Classical and Quantum Theories. The Planck Distribution Law of the electromagnetic oscillators explains the electron/proton mass rate and the Weak and Strong Interactions by the diffraction patterns. The Weak Interaction changes the diffraction patterns by moving the electric charge from one side to the other side of the diffraction pattern, which violates the CP and Time reversal symmetry. The diffraction patterns and the locality of the self-maintaining electromagnetic potential explains also the Quantum Entanglement, giving it as a natural part of the Relativistic Quantum Theory and making possible to understand the Quantum Biology.

Comments: 3 Pages.

Experimental realization of Gedanken experiments on Quantum Mechanics continue to suggest inferences of action at a distance, action into the future or past as reported in Delayed choice Quantum entanglement experiments recently by Ma et al (2012). Is it possible to read through this and investigate through simple logic and experiments whether control of the past or future is possible? A set of experiments are suggested here to do the same whose results may be interesting.

Comments: 2 Pages.

This paper introduces a new exponential formula for the fine-structure constant. This approximate formula is expressed in terms of the masses of the electron, the neutron and the proton. The error of the formula is less than 1%. This accuracy suggests that there is an unknown parameter which has not been taken into account.

An Accumulative Model for Quantum Theories

Authors: Chris Thron
Comments: 11 pages, 3 figures

For a general quantum theory that is describable by a path integral formalism, we construct a mathematical model of an accumulation-to-threshold process whose outcomes give predictions that are nearly identical to the given quantum theory. The model is neither local nor causal in spacetime, but is both local and causal is in a non-observable path space. The probabilistic nature of the squared wavefunction is a natural consequence of the model. We verify the model with simulations, and we discuss possible discrepancies from conventional quantum theory that might be detectable via experiment. Finally, we discuss the physical implications of the model.

The Principle of Anti-Superposition in QM and the Local Solution of the Bell’s Inequality Problem

Authors: Jiri Soucek
Comments: 54 Pages.

In this paper we identify the superposition principle as a main source of problems in QM (measurement, collapse, non-locality etc.). Here the superposition principle for individual systems is substituted by the antisuperposition principle: no non-trivial superposition of states is a possible individual state (for ensembles the superposition principle is true). The modified QM is based on the anti-superposition principle and on the new type of probability theory (Extended Probability Theory [1]), which allows the reversible Markov processes as models for QM. In the modified QM the measurement is a process inside of QM and the concept of an observation of the measuring system is defined. The outcome value is an attribute of the ensemble of measured systems. The collapse of the state is substituted by the Selection process. We show that the derivation of Bell’s inequalities is then impossible and thus QM remains a local theory. Our main results are: the locality of the modified QM, the local explanation of EPR correlations, the non-existence of the wave-particle duality, the solution of the measurement problem. We show that QM can be understood as a new type of the statistical mechanics of many-particle systems.

Another Way to Introduce the Wave-Particle Duality

Authors: Emmanuel Kanambaye
Comments: 16 Pages. The document is in french

The hypothesis proposed in this document is a simple and powerful physical hypothesis; it allows to associate a wave behavior in any mass movement and impose a new field to energy; field that prevents the formation of gravitational singularities, offers the possibility to explain the accelerating expansion of the universe, cosmic inflation and much more. So it is a hypothesis that solves most of the problems raised by the current theories and observations.

Uncertainty Principle and Position Operator in Quantum Theory

Authors: Felix M. Lev
Comments: 12 Pages.

The Heisenberg uncertainty principle is a consequence of the postulate that coordinate and momentum representations are related to each other by the Fourier transform. This postulate has been accepted from the beginning of quantum theory by analogy with classical electrodynamics. We argue that the postulate is based neither on strong theoretical arguments nor on experimental data. A position operator proposed in our recent publication resolves inconsistencies of standard approach and sheds a new light on important problems of quantum theory. We do not assume that the reader is an expert in the given field and believe that the content of the paper can be understood by a wide audience of physicists

Quantum Computing and Relativity

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 13 Pages.

Building a quantum computer can sometimes yield unexpected benefits — like providing the right environment to demonstrate that Albert Einstein's theory of special relativity is, in fact, correct. [7] While physicists are continually looking for ways to unify the theory of relativity, which describes large-scale phenomena, with quantum theory, which describes small-scale phenomena, computer scientists are searching for technologies to build the quantum computer. The accelerating electrons explain not only the Maxwell Equations and the Special Relativity, but the Heisenberg Uncertainty Relation, the Wave-Particle Duality and the electron’s spin also, building the Bridge between the Classical and Quantum Theories. The Planck Distribution Law of the electromagnetic oscillators explains the electron/proton mass rate and the Weak and Strong Interactions by the diffraction patterns. The Weak Interaction changes the diffraction patterns by moving the electric charge from one side to the other side of the diffraction pattern, which violates the CP and Time reversal symmetry. The diffraction patterns and the locality of the self-maintaining electromagnetic potential explains also the Quantum Entanglement, giving it as a natural part of the Relativistic Quantum Theory and making possible to build the Quantum Computer.

Can We Violate Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle?

Authors: Koji Nagata, Tadao Nakamura
Comments: 3 pages

Recently, violation of Heisenberg's uncertainty relation in spin measurements is discussed {[J. Erhart {\it et al.}, Nature Physics {\bf 8}, 185 (2012)]} and {[G. Sulyok {\it et al.}, Phys. Rev. A {\bf 88}, 022110 (2013)]}. We derive the optimal limitation of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle in a specific two-level system (e.g., electron spin, photon polarizations, and so on). Some physical situation is that we would measure $\sigma_x$ and $\sigma_y$, simultaneously. The optimality is certified by the Bloch sphere. We show that a violation of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle means a violation of the Bloch sphere in the specific case. Thus, the above experiments show a violation of the Bloch sphere when we use $\pm 1$ as measurement outcome. This conclusion agrees with recent researches {[K. Nagata, Int. J. Theor. Phys. {\bf 48}, 3532 (2009)]} and {[K. Nagata {\it et al.}, Int. J. Theor. Phys. {\bf 49}, 162 (2010)]}.

Memories Might be Passed Down Through Generations in Our DNA

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 16 Pages.

New research from Emory University School of Medicine, in Atlanta, has shown that it is possible for some information to be inherited biologically through chemical changes that occur in DNA. During the tests they learned that that mice can pass on learned information about traumatic or stressful experiences – in this case a fear of the smell of cherry blossom – to subsequent generations. [9] A new way of thinking about consciousness is sweeping through science like wildfire. Now physicists are using it to formulate the problem of consciousness in concrete mathematical terms for the first time. Discovery of quantum vibrations in 'microtubules' inside brain neurons supports controversial theory of consciousness. The human body is a constant flux of thousands of chemical/biological interactions and processes connecting molecules, cells, organs, and fluids, throughout the brain, body, and nervous system. Up until recently it was thought that all these interactions operated in a linear sequence, passing on information much like a runner passing the baton to the next runner.

Quantum Spiral Theory

In this paper we have tried to describe a gauge group for gravitational potential associated with the elementary particle as described by their spiral structure in accordance with the standard model. It relates to the framework of quantum field theory considering the Dark Potential Waves which constitutes the Universe to be destructively interfering through Symmetry which breaks spontaneously through autocatalysis to initiate the Higgs Mechanism which consecutively defines the gravitational potential resulting in various spiral forms of particles. It also redefines the formation of Spiral Structure of Elementary Particles in context to formation of Sea Shells.

Explanation of Quantum Phenomena with a New Model of Photon and Electron Emission, Propagation and Absorption

Authors: Henok Tadesse
Comments: 21 Pages.

The puzzles of quantum mechanics are: 1. what is the medium for the photon and for the electron wave? i.e. what is waving? 2. particle interference pattern 3. observer effect. 4. entanglement. In Quantum Erasure and Double-Slit experiments, how does the emitter know to direct the photon two both slits or only to one slit? And how does the detector know where to detect the photons to form an interference pattern and not a bell-shaped (Gaussian) pattern or vice versa? This paper proposes a few, closely related, simple and subtle laws of nature governing quantum phenomena. Some of the findings in this paper are: 1. A photon is emitted in two steps: the creation of photon path and the emission of the photon 2. Although (almost) all of the energy of the photon is localized in space, the photon extends to infinity. An extremely small energy of the photon, which we call the 'precursor wave' in this paper, extends to infinity. The instant the photon is emitted, its precursor wave creates a path to infinity; it appears instantaneously in all its path to infinity, with infinitely small energy density. The precursor wave serves as the 'highway' for the propagation of the main energy packet. However, to conserve the principle of causality, we assume that the tip of the photon propagates at a speed billions times the speed of light. Thus, there are two speeds associated with the photon: the speed we know as c and the speed at which the photon length increases. 2. A photon will be emitted only towards an absorber. A photon is emitted by the interaction of the emitter and a detector. It is obvious that a photon will not be emitted if there is no emitter. Nor will a photon be emitted if there is no detector . Once a photon is emitted, however, it exists objectively, autonomously. The photon is emitted only after its path is determined by the interaction of the emitter and the absorber, at the instant of emission. 3. The photon energy will be concentrated where there is higher wave amplitude, i.e higher intensity of oscillation of electric and magnetic fields. This results in 'dragging' of the electromagnetic energy by the wave, hence eliminating the need for any medium. It is also proposed that single photon interference is a quantum phenomenon whereas two photon interference is a classical phenomenon. Similar laws hold for the electron. The 'medium' for the electron wave is the electron (the electron mass density field) itself. Where there is higher intensity of electron wave/oscillation, there will be higher electron mass density. This means that the electron wave 'drags' the electron with itself. Therefore, no exotic 'medium' is required for the photon and for the electron wave.

Quantized Capacitance and Energy of the Atom and Photon

Authors: Lane M Davis
Comments: 8 Pages.

By modeling both the atom and the photon as capacitors, the correct energy levels are easily produced via extrapolation from Maxwell's, Gauss', Coulomb's and Ohm's laws — without the need to inject Planck's constant into the equation ad-hoc. In the case of the photon, Einstein's photoelectric equation is formulated as a result, with Planck's constant consequently occurring as an aggregate of fundamental constants. Analysis of these equations lends credence to Planck's fervent and controversial personal dogma that the constant which he himself had discovered is nothing but “a mathematical trick”. Further analysis shows that this model reconciles the wave-particle duality; wherein the wave properties of light and matter produce the particle-like aspects as a result of the laws of electrical engineering in conjunction with the uncertainty principle and Schrödinger's wave equations.

Criticality and Dark Matter

Authors: M. Pitkänen
Comments: 22 Pages.

Quantum criticality is one of the corner stone assumptions of TGD. The value of Kähler coupling strength fixes quantum TGD and is analogous to critical temperature. TGD Universe would be quantum critical. What does this mean is however far from obvious and I have pondered the notion repeatedly both from the point of view of mathematical description and phenomenology. Superfluids exhibit rather mysterious looking effects such as fountain effect and what looks like quantum coherence of superfluid containers which should be classically isolated. These findings serve as a motivation for the proposal that genuine superfluid portion of superfluid corresponds to a large heff phase near criticality at least and that also in other phase transition like phenomena a phase transition to dark phase occurs near the vicinity.

Half-Light Half-Matter Quantum Particles

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 17 Pages.

Prospects of developing computing and communication technologies based on quantum properties of light and matter may have taken a major step forward thanks to research by City College of New York physicists led by Dr. Vinod Menon. [12] Solitons are localized wave disturbances that propagate without changing shape, a result of a nonlinear interaction that compensates for wave packet dispersion. Individual solitons may collide, but a defining feature is that they pass through one another and emerge from the collision unaltered in shape, amplitude, or velocity, but with a new trajectory reflecting a discontinuous jump. Working with colleagues at the Harvard-MIT Center for Ultracold Atoms, a group led by Harvard Professor of Physics Mikhail Lukin and MIT Professor of Physics Vladan Vuletic have managed to coax photons into binding together to form molecules – a state of matter that, until recently, had been purely theoretical. The work is described in a September 25 paper in Nature. New ideas for interactions and particles: This paper examines the possibility to origin the Spontaneously Broken Symmetries from the Planck Distribution Law. This way we get a Unification of the Strong, Electromagnetic, and Weak Interactions from the interference occurrences of oscillators. Understanding that the relativistic mass change is the result of the magnetic induction we arrive to the conclusion that the Gravitational Force is also based on the electromagnetic forces, getting a Unified Relativistic Quantum Theory of all 4 Interactions.

Possible Explanation for the Quantum Entanglement of Photons

Authors: Hasmukh K. Tank
Comments: Single-page note

Quantum entanglement of pair of particles is now an established fact as described in [1]. But its theoretical explanation is yet to be found. So this letter attempts to propose one possible explanation, based on this author’s previous works: In a paper titled: “Some conjectures on the nature of energy and matter”[2] and its latest version “ On the emergence of physical world from the ultimate reality” [3] it was proposed that ‘space’ or ‘vacuum’ can be viewed as a ‘super flexible continuum (SFC), and ‘particles’ of ‘matter’ as ‘spherical standing wave patterns’ of fluctuations generated in SFC. Since, in a continuum, when a labeled dot moves from point A to A’ the point B behind it has to move from B to B’; and this chain of displacements has to complete a closed circular path, whose radius can be as small as a few nano-meters or as large as a few thousand kilometers. This motion of point A completes a small circle on the surface of a spherical shell in a time t , giving rise to a wave in the radial direction. The propagation of this wave in the radial direction is at the speed of light; whereas the displacements of points on the surface of spherical shell are instantaneous; because of the continuum nature of ‘space’. When such a wave of fluctuations moves in radial direction, it mirror-wave, of the same frequency and amplitude, has to move in radially opposite direction, giving rise to a pair of pulses moving apart in r adial directions. Since, the spin and polarization of ‘photons’ are in perpendicular to the direction of their motion, they are in the tangential-direction of the spherical shell, on which displacements of points take place instantaneously. This is what is known as ‘entanglement’ of ‘photons’. The observed entanglement of photons, and other particles, imply the presence of an underlying ‘super flexible continuum’ (SFC) , as was anticipated in [1] in the year 1988.

Twist, Writhe, Linking Number of Quarks and Elementary Particles

Authors: Giuliano Bettini
Comments: 15 Pages.

Abstract A biological model of elementary particles with many resemblances with DNA. More precisely, with a circular supercoiled DNA, or as supercoiled rods. The model is isomorphic with the quark model. It justifies all the elementary particles, and only these. A particle is a closed wire, a single strand, a helix. Quarks are twisted pieces of this helix, having its own charge Q, but also isospin projection I3 and hypercharge Y. I put charge Q, isospin projection I3 and hypercharge Y in one-to-one correspondence with a physical model, in which each quark, each piece of helix, has its own Linking number Lk, Twist Tw and Writhe Wr. As a consequence, any elementary particle is modelled by a closed wire, with its own internal Twist, Writhe Wr and Linking number (charge). For any closed cord Lk is invariant, so the alteration of the Twist will absorbed as Writhe and viceversa. Each couple Tw / Wr corresponds to different conformation. The lowest-energy conformation will have the lowest mass, and the others will have much more mass. As I know, the model is just “picturesque”, but may lead to some idea

Bell was Simply Wrong

Authors: Edwin Eugene Klingman
Comments: 8 Pages.

Bell oversimplified his model based on confusing a provisional precession eigen­value equation with Dirac's fundamental helicity eigenvalue equation. I derive a local classical model based on energy-exchange physics that Bell intentionally suppressed and I show that Bell's constraints determine whether the model is local or non-local. The physical theory upon which the model is based can be tested experimentally; if valid, Bell's claims of non-locality will be proved wrong.

My Explanation for the Observed Wave-Particle-Duality of Light

Authors: Hasmukh K. Tank
Comments: Four-page letter

This letter proposes an explanation for the century-old puzzle of the wave-particle-duality of light, which thousands of physicists, including Einstein, Plank, Feynman …, have been trying to resolve. Since a ‘particle’ is localized in space, it is mathematically characterized here as an impulse-function in space. Then it is argued that if this ‘particle’ has anything to do with waves then we can know it by taking Fourier-transform of the impulse-function in space. When Fourier-transformed into wave-number-domain; we find that a ‘particle’ should contain a wide ‘set’ of waves, and not just a single frequency. Then we show that in the experiments performed so far [1] the red lasers had significantly wide line-width, means the sources have been producing a wide set of waves, and not just a pure single frequency. Similarly, in the single-particle interference-experiments incandescent filament-lamps were used with green filters inserted to isolate single photons; but it is obvious that at the frequencies of light very narrow-band-filters are not yet technically feasible, so the green filters used allowed significantly wide band of waves. So in the experiments performed so far we got ‘particles’ localized in space. And in the double-slit-interference-experiments this wide band of waves passed from both the slits, interfered like waves, and whenever and wherever they got coherently added, a ‘particle’ called ‘photon’ got detected. Atoms emit short-duration pulses of radiation, so their Fourier transform contains a wide band of frequencies. And at the time of detection, an atom needs only a small piece of continuous ‘wave’, of a suitable duration, amplitude and frequency, for ejection of an electron. So it is concluded here that: emission and detection of light is in the form of ‘photons’; whereas its propagation in space is in the form of a wide band of ‘waves’.

Principle of the Compressible Fluid Mechanics Featured by Ether Non-Viscosity and Continuous Medium

Authors: Jia Yongxin, Jia Xiangyun, Jia Yuxuan
Comments: 67 Pages.

In the current optical theory, the moving mass of light quantum is usually studied as the basic mass where the photon energy is concerned. In the paper titled "The Relationship between light translation and fluctuation and ether energy and momentum", the relations between ether photon, energy of the ether field and its momentum can also be considered in light of the manifestation of the mass and momentum, This can show the situation of light quantum based on energy divergence, which has certain significance for an accurate understanding of ether. It can be seen that this method ignores systematicness and independent space of ether photon itself and only the overall relative manifested state of light quantum but not the essential state is revealed. In this context, it is difficult for us to understand the relationship between real photon mass and moving mass, which is quite unacceptable just like the principle of qualitative change in theory of relativity. From the perspective of quantum property of light quantum momentum, the relationship between the real mass of photon, moving mass and motion itself as well as the relationship between ether photon particle group and motion of astral body and hence the relationship with frequency are analyzed. Our discussion can accurately reflect the real conditions of mass, momentum and energy of light quantum. Many results conforming to the observation are obtained, which can provide explanations for the following relations: the relations between light radiation and motion of pulsating star, volume expansion and motion of astral body, nova eruption and motion, transverse Doppler effect, and the frequency difference in solar spherical radiation. The section can also be used as further development of the classical particle physics, and it can become the compressible fluid mechanics featured by failure of universal gravitation, no strength, non-viscosity and continuous media by changing the mechanics of a single mass point to the mechanics of mass point groups and the manifested group mechanics due to the energy expansion of the single mass point. By bypassing the too general concept of energy in theory of relativity, the energy is defined as the quantity of mass points and momentum points, so that the relationship between energy and momentum is analyzed more clearly.

Simplification of Quantum Mechanics

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 11 Pages.

Patrick Coles, Jedrzej Kaniewski, and Stephanie Wehner made the breakthrough while at the Centre for Quantum Technologies at the National University of Singapore. They found that 'wave-particle duality' is simply the quantum 'uncertainty principle' in disguise, reducing two mysteries to one. [4] The accelerating electrons explain not only the Maxwell Equations and the Special Relativity, but the Heisenberg Uncertainty Relation, the Wave-Particle Duality and the electron’s spin also, building the Bridge between the Classical and Quantum Theories. The Planck Distribution Law of the electromagnetic oscillators explains the electron/proton mass rate and the Weak and Strong Interactions by the diffraction patterns. The Weak Interaction changes the diffraction patterns by moving the electric charge from one side to the other side of the diffraction pattern, which violates the CP and Time reversal symmetry.

Information – Entropy Theory of Life

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 18 Pages.

There is also connection between statistical physics and evolutionary biology, since the arrow of time is working in the biological evolution also. From the standpoint of physics, there is one essential difference between living things and inanimate clumps of carbon atoms: The former tend to be much better at capturing energy from their environment and dissipating that energy as heat. [8] This paper contains the review of quantum entanglement investigations in living systems, and in the quantum mechanically modeled photoactive prebiotic kernel systems. [7] The human body is a constant flux of thousands of chemical/biological interactions and processes connecting molecules, cells, organs, and fluids, throughout the brain, body, and nervous system. Up until recently it was thought that all these interactions operated in a linear sequence, passing on information much like a runner passing the baton to the next runner. However, the latest findings in quantum biology and biophysics have discovered that there is in fact a tremendous degree of coherence within all living systems. The accelerating electrons explain not only the Maxwell Equations and the Special Relativity, but the Heisenberg Uncertainty Relation, the Wave-Particle Duality and the electron’s spin also, building the Bridge between the Classical and Quantum Theories. The Planck Distribution Law of the electromagnetic oscillators explains the electron/proton mass rate and the Weak and Strong Interactions by the diffraction patterns. The Weak Interaction changes the diffraction patterns by moving the electric charge from one side to the other side of the diffraction pattern, which violates the CP and Time reversal symmetry. The diffraction patterns and the locality of the self-maintaining electromagnetic potential explains also the Quantum Entanglement, giving it as a natural part of the Relativistic Quantum Theory and making possible to understand the Quantum Biology.

Derivation of the Equation e =mc2 from the Universal Uncertainty Principles

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 9 Pages.

The present paper is concerned with the derivation of the Einstein's formula of equivalence of mass and energy, E = mc^2, from the universal uncertainty relations. These relations are a generalization of the Heisenberg uncertainty relations. Thus, this approach unifies two of the most important laws of physics as provides the proof of the quantum mechanical interpretation of the above formula, and, at the same time, provides the proof of the correctness of the universal uncertainty relations that I found in 2012.

A New Approach on the Photoelectric Effect

Authors: Fran De Aquino
Comments: 7 Pages.

When photons hit a material surface they exert a pressure on it. It was shown that this pressure has a negative component (opposite to the direction of propagation of the photons) due to the existence of the negative linear momentum transported by the photons. Here we show that, in the photoelectric effect, the electrons are ejected by the action of this negative component of the momentum transported by the light photons. It is still shown that, also the gravitational interaction results from the action of this negative component of the momentum transported by specific photons.

The Hunt for Dark Photons

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 13 Pages.

Although the idea of heavy photons has been around for almost 30 years, it gained new interest just a few years ago when theorists suggested that it could explain why several experiments detected more high-energy positrons—the antimatter partners of electrons—than scientists had expected in the cosmic radiation of space. Data from the PAMELA satellite experiment; the AMS instrument aboard the International Space Station; the LAT experiment of the Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope and others have all reported finding an excess of positrons. [13] Hidden photons are predicted in some extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics, and unlike WIMPs they would interact electromagnetically with normal matter. In particle physics and astrophysics, weakly interacting massive particles, or WIMPs, are among the leading hypothetical particle physics candidates for dark matter. The gravitational force attracting the matter, causing concentration of the matter in a small space and leaving much space with low matter concentration: dark matter and energy. There is an asymmetry between the mass of the electric charges, for example proton and electron, can understood by the asymmetrical Planck Distribution Law. This temperature dependent energy distribution is asymmetric around the maximum intensity, where the annihilation of matter and antimatter is a high probability event. The asymmetric sides are creating different frequencies of electromagnetic radiations being in the same intensity level and compensating each other. One of these compensating ratios is the electron – proton mass ratio. The lower energy side has no compensating intensity level, it is the dark energy and the corresponding matter is the dark matter.

Cosmic Quantization with Respect to the Conservation of Upper-Limit Energy (2)

Comments: 10 Pages. email: emaroun85@hotmail.com

The conditions of the early universe are not known with any measure of certainty — they are only theories. Therefore, using the assumption that the estimated total energy of the observable universe is conserved, we propose a different lower limit for the gravitational energy; we attempt to unify the subatomic and the large scale universe into one coherent whole; thus, showing that the cosmos behaves like a quantum object. It uses a form of Bohr’s quantization to strengthen the unification of quantum gravity. Our model is simple, yet comprehensive.

A numeric formula for the masses of composite particles made of three quarks is presented. The formula, which uses “discontinuous” quantum numbers, predicts the masses of 13 baryons and one lepton (the tau particle), with an accuracy of, at least, 3 decimal places. The maximum accuracy of the formula is 5 decimal places. The formula suggests the existence of a general formula for the mass of all known particles, which is yet, to be discovered.

Searching for Dark Photons

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 13 Pages.

Researchers have studied electron-positron (e+e-) collisions for interactions that produce a normal photon γ and a dark photon A′ that interacts with ordinary matter particles. The dark photon can potentially decay into an e+e- pair (shown here) or a μ+μ- pair (not shown). However, the latest results from the BaBar collaboration offer no sign of dark photons, thus placing new limits on these types of models. [13] Hidden photons are predicted in some extensions of the Standard Model of particle physics, and unlike WIMPs they would interact electromagnetically with normal matter. In particle physics and astrophysics, weakly interacting massive particles, or WIMPs, are among the leading hypothetical particle physics candidates for dark matter.

Unlocking the Mystery of Interference Patterns in Electron and Photon Double-Slit Experiments and the Puzzle of ‘Waves Without Medium’

Authors: Henok Tadesse
Comments: 9 Pages.

The formidable problem with double-slit experiments (and with Quantum Mechanics as a whole) is: if electrons and photons exhibit wave properties (seen as interference patterns), then what is waving? What is the medium for transmission of ‘electron waves’? Does it give sense at all to talk about ‘interference’ of a particle? The hypothesis of existence of a medium (the ether) was already disproved experimentally by the Michelson-Morley experiment, in the case of the photon (light). For the electron, such a medium is not even conceivable. Despite the success of Schrodinger’s wave function in predicting and explaining the results of experiments, what physical quantity the wave function actually represents is still unknown. Erwin Schrodinger was on the right track with his view of the electron as a ‘smeared’ object, rather than as a point particle, and with his rejection of the Copenhagen interpretation. Yet he was still far from the ultimate mystery. Then how is a wave possible without a medium? How can a wave property and a particle property co-exist in a single physical entity (the electron and the photon)? Nature uses a simple and subtle trick : the electron mass density at a given point of space is directly proportional to the intensity of oscillation of the electron (the electron wave) at that point. The instantaneous mass density of the electron at a given point is directly proportional to the instantaneous vibrational velocity of the electron at that point. This resolves the central mystery in Quantum Mechanics: electron interference pattern. The photon energy density at a given point is directly proportional to the intensity of vibration (oscillation) of the electric and magnetic fields at that point. The new theory provides a hint on the mystery behind Planck’s relation: E=h.f. Higher frequency photons have higher energy than lower frequency photons just because higher frequency photons also have higher amplitudes of electric and magnetic fields.

Information Flow Direction in the Brain

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 13 Pages.

Sometimes, you can picture something so vividly in your head that it feels as though you’re actually looking at what you’re imagining. But no matter how good your imagination is, information will flow through your brain in the opposite direction compared to when you actually perceive something. That’s the conclusion of a new study, published in NeuroImage, which looked at brain activity in participants when they were either watching clips or recalling them in their heads. [7] The hypothesis that there may be something quantum-like about the human mental function was put forward with “Spooky Activation at Distance” formula which attempted to model the effect that when a word’s associative network is activated during study in memory experiment; it behaves like a quantum-entangled system. The human body is a constant flux of thousands of chemical/biological interactions and processes connecting molecules, cells, organs, and fluids, throughout the brain, body, and nervous system. Up until recently it was thought that all these interactions operated in a linear sequence, passing on information much like a runner passing the baton to the next runner. However, the latest findings in quantum biology and biophysics have discovered that there is in fact a tremendous degree of coherence within all living systems. The accelerating electrons explain not only the Maxwell Equations and the Special Relativity, but the Heisenberg Uncertainty Relation, the Wave-Particle Duality and the electron’s spin also, building the Bridge between the Classical and Quantum Theories. The Planck Distribution Law of the electromagnetic oscillators explains the electron/proton mass rate and the Weak and Strong Interactions by the diffraction patterns. The Weak Interaction changes the diffraction patterns by moving the electric charge from one side to the other side of the diffraction pattern, which violates the CP and Time reversal symmetry. The diffraction patterns and the locality of the self-maintaining electromagnetic potential explains also the Quantum Entanglement, giving it as a natural part of the Relativistic Quantum Theory and making possible to understand the Quantum Biology.

A Simple Formula Suggests a Profound Mass Relation Between Quarks and Leptons

This paper is concerned with a formula for the mass of the neutron. This formula is based on the mass of the proton and the masses of the three heavier leptons: the electron (generation 1), the muon (generation 2) and the tau particle (generation 3). The formula is, at least, accurate to 4 decimal places. Because the mass of the tau particle is poorly known, it is unknown whether this formula is physically correct or it is simply a numeric coincidence. Finally, the formula suggests a deep mass relationship between quarks and leptons.

QUASI UNIVERSE The Universe on the edge of Daleth, Another Cosmological Paradigm

Authors: Jack B. Wenger
Comments: 128 Pages. Availible as html at www. quasiuniverse.com

Preface or abstract Quasi universe changes very little. It is simply another perspective on the standard model and provides substance to field theory. The mathematics involved should be the similar, although this perspective may provide some shortcuts and may even eliminate the need for “normalization”, perhaps not. I think that it makes many of the observed characteristics of cosmology, quantum mechanics and particle physics more intuitive. As far as I can tell it, agrees with observations as reported in the popular press and the texts that I have read. Others may find major flaws in its presentation. If that is the case, I am happy. At least they have read it. The diagram, on the title page represents a cross section of the layers within a 5space hyper sphere. All spacial systems are treated as interfaces. Lines represent 4spaces, the areas between lines represent 5spaces and the point where the lines meet represents a 3space or volume. The convention used within this document is that a 5space hyper sphere has a curved 4space (4 dimensional) surface that encloses a 5space hyper (5 dimensional) volume just as a 3space sphere has a 2space (2 dimensional) or planar surface that encloses a 3space (3 dimensional) volume. The layers within the 5space sphere also have curved 4space surfaces or interfaces. The yellow layer is a 5space fluid that is intruding between two others. The region at which the intruder separates the other two and where all layers meet is a volume or 3space. The intruder rubs against the other two layers and creates shear which is expressed as an extremely fine texture of vortices. This is the primary field, an ocean of energy similar to the Higgs field in our universe. These vortices create and follow wakes of distortion or torque at the interfaces between the intruder and the other two layers. The shear vortices and their wakes are the ingredients that make up vastly larger objects and fields much in the way that grains of sand and cement make up the foundations of a building. These large objects and fields mimic the particles and fields in our universe The paradigm suggests some solutions to apparent problems of today’s physical theories. It suggests a variable rate of expansion of the quasi universe and provides a source for its dark energy. It goes further in that it links dark energy, gravitation and universal expansion together. It provides a structure for a three or four quark system that does not need fractional charge. Debris from collisions would imply the three 5D partitions created by the intrusion of Daleth and should be similar to the debris that implies the three quark model in our universe. Quasi universe allows the Daleth partition to have zero charge because it may contain two matter swarms of opposing charges and intrinsic spin. These extra swarms may behave like our “sea quarks”. The properties of photonic and matter swarms allow us to easily visualize these objects as “particle waves”. There are no conflicts here. And it is easy to visualize shear vortices as the currency for the conversion of matter to energy and vice versa. Their fluidity as swarms requires that their interactions to be described in terms of probabilities, complex interference and quasi quantum states What follows below is rational for this scenario. I am not under the illusion that I have everything right. These are simply suggestion as to how one might approach the paradigm. The paper will be updated as I reevaluate some of the concepts

On the Nature of the Newton Gravitational Constant

Authors: Casper Spanggaard
Comments: 4 Pages. Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License.

A definition of G is derived using the product of two Planck point masses and a definition of hbar based on the speed of light in vacuum and geometry. The theoretical value of G is found to be 6.74981057667161 x 10^-11 m^3 kg^-1 s^-2 yielding a relative accuracy error of the CODATA 2010 G-value of -1.1255%. One experiment resulted in a value with a smaller relative accuracy error than the CODATA 2010 G-value of -0.5098%. Both rest and relativistic mass product equations are derived. These equations relate the relative spacetime spin frequency w_s, the relative orbital frequency w_o and (relativistic equation only) the Lorentz factor y describing relative linear speed of two bodies to the mass product. The Planck mass is a special case mass with w_sw_o = w_planck^2 = 1 s^-2. The theoretical value of the Planck mass was found to be 2.16039211144077 x 10^-8 kg. The relative accuracy error of the CODATA 2010 Planck mass value is 0.7461%. This error is attributed to use of the different definition of hbar. When derived from both hbar and G constants as well as the rest mass product equation, three kilogram unit definition candidates are all inconsistent. The candidate derived from the rest mass product equation is the only candidate that has equal second and meter exponents suggesting a kind of symmetry. This definition is considered the nominal kilogram unit definition. The other two candidates are considered to be artifacts of the hbar and G constants.

Laser-cooled Atoms, Heisenberg's Uncertainty Principle, and A Proposal of Deterministic Quantum Mechanical Experiments

Authors: Hasmukh K. Tank
Comments: Two-page Letter

According to Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle, both, position and momentum of a particle, cannot be known with ultimate accuracy; the product: Δ x . Δ p > h . Whereas in the case of Laser-cooled atoms, we know that velocity of the particle is close to zero; and its position x is so perfectly known, that an atom is said to be held in Laser forceps. These experiments show that both position and momentum of atoms are accurately knowable! Similarly, when momentum of an atom is zero, the wavelength of its de Broglie wave is very very long; and according to quantum-mechanical interpretation, the atom is likely to be detected anywhere within its de Broglie wavelength, with higher probability at the peaks of the wave. Whereas the experiments with Laser-cooled atoms show that the atom is confined precisely within the Laser forceps. To avoid this anomaly, new experiment is proposed here in which, instead of quantum mechanical waves, which have wavelength h / m v , corresponding to phase velocity of the wave, we can let the waves corresponding to group-velocity, of the wavelength h v / m c^2 , interfere in double-slit interference experiment. And we can expect that a particle may deterministically tunnel from one peak of the group-wave to next peak of the group wave; and can be detected at predictable points.

On value of David Bohm’s Quantum Mechanics

Authors: Dmitri Martila
Comments: 3 Pages.

The Templeton Prize winner wrote: „In the second half of the eighteenth century, the deterministic character of Newton’s equations encouraged many people to see the physical world in strictly mechanical terms, as if the universe is a gigantic piece of cosmic clockwork.” Such wrong view comes from the believe, that the energy and momentum are always conserve.

Is the Electron Unstable?

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 8 Pages.

The problem I shall address in this paper is concerned with the mean lifetimes of leptons. After proposing a formula for the lifetime of the tau particle and following two simple rules, I build a formula for the lifetime of the muon. Based on these two formulas and based on the same rules, I derive the formula for the mean lifetime of the electron. The formula I found through this extrapolation process indicates that the electron is unstable and that its mean lifetime is, approximately, (π /2)×10^90 years, which is about 10^80 times the age of the universe. Thus according to this formulation the lifetime of the electron is extraordinarily long but not infinite as previously thought.

The Mass of the Electron (II)

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 5 Pages.

A formula for the mass of the electron is derived from a lepton mass factor, a Koidean ratio for quarks and a dimensionless factor based on the fine-structure constant. If this formula were correct it would prove a profound relationship between the masses of leptons and quarks.

General Principle of Interaction, a Different Approach to Unification in Particle Physics

Authors: Victor Paromov
Comments: 11 pages, 3 tables, 3 figures

In modern physics, the two most basic principles of interaction, the principal of space-time involvement of the General Relativity (GR) and the gauge transformation principle of the quantum field theories are incompatible due to the completely different understanding of the space-time. To solve this fundamental inconsistency, the General Principal of Interaction (GPI) is proposed. The GPI requires the Einstein’s principal of space-time involvement to be applied to all types of interaction assuming that the space-time is nine-dimensional with five extra spatial dimensions in addition to the ordinary space-time (OST). With the GPI, strong nuclear forces can be understood as geometrical alterations of the compactified three-dimensional “nuclear space” (NS), and electromagnetism and weak nuclear forces can be understood as geometrical alterations of the open two-dimensional “electromagnetic space” (EMS). Thus, the space-time includes three realms: OST, EMS and NS, which are geometrically separated due to the differences in their overall curvatures. The GPI provides a strong basis for the future theory unifying all four types of interaction as it naturally combines the space-time-based understanding of interaction with the quantization by describing all elementary particles as curvature waves in the multidimensional space-time. It is expected that the GPI-based theory will be a fully deterministic self-consistent non-renormalizable theory describing all types of interaction with low number of free parameters and no Higgs mechanism. The mathematical description of this theory is not given; only possible ways to construct suitable framework are being discussed. The GPI-based theory requires absence of gauge bosons and prohibits neutrino, H, W and Z bosons. Considering the fact that all these particles are proven experimentally the conjectured GPI-based theory will make no sense until strong experimental evidence of the opposite is found. Also, it is discussed: 1) why the main principals of the GR and gauge theories are mutually exclusive, 2) application of the GPI to the three interactions currently described by the SM, 3) expected advantages of the conjectured GPI-based theory, 4) possible explanations of the “dark matter” and “dark energy” phenomena, 5) the theory’s problems and 6) predictions.

Possible Explanation for the Quantum Entanglement of Photons

Authors: Hasmukh K. Tank
Comments: Seven page letter

Quantum entanglement of pair of particles is now an established fact as described in [1]. But its theoretical explanation is yet to be found. So this letter attempts to propose one possible explanation, based on the previous works. In a paper titled: “Some conjectures on the nature of energy and matter” [2], and its latest version titled: “ On the emergence of physical world from the ultimate reality” [3] it was proposed that ‘space’ or ‘vacuum’ can be viewed as a ‘super flexible continuum (SFC), and ‘particles’ of ‘matter’ as ‘spherical standing wave patterns’ of fluctuations generated in SFC. Einstein tried to do-away with ether in his special theory of relativity, but when he had to assign curvature to space, he told: " Well, in that sense, there exists an ether" But majority of scientists still stick to emptiness of space, and are facing understanding observations like quantum entanglement and collapse of the quantum-mechanical wave-function. In this manuscript space is assumed to be a super-flexible-continuum, and you will find that it helps gaining an insight into the quantum entanglement and collapse of q-m wave-function. Since, in a continuum, when a labeled dot moves from point A to A’, as shown in the figure1 here, the point B behind it has to move from B to B’; and this chain of displacements has to complete a closed circular path, whose radius can be as small as a few nano-meters or as large as a few thousand kilometers. Since there is no preferred axis about which the point A should orbit, it moves partly about x-axis, partly about y-axis and partly about z-axis; forming a small circle on the spherical shell. This motion of point A, of completing a small circle on the surface of a spherical shell, takes some time t, giving rise to a wave in the radial directions. The propagation of this wave in the radial directions is at the speed of light; whereas the displacements of points on the surface of spherical shell are instantaneous and simultaneous; because of the continuum nature of ‘space’. When such a wave of fluctuations moves in radial direction its mirror-wave, of the same frequency and amplitude, has to move in radially opposite direction, giving rise to a pair of pulses moving apart in radial directions. Since, the spin and polarization of ‘photons’ are perpendicular to the direction of photon’s motion, they are in the tangential-direction of the spherical shell, on which displacements of points take place instantaneously. Therefore, when spin, or polarization, of one photon is measured the spin and polarization of the mirror-particle gets instantaneously affected, because of the instantaneous displacement of points on the surface of the spherical shell. Similarly, when a photon is absorbed by one atom on the spherical shell, the wave collapses, because of simultaneous displacement of points on the spherical shell. Thus, the observed entanglement of photons, and other particles, imply the presence of an underlying ‘super flexible continuum’ (SFC), as was anticipated in [2] in the year 1988.

Derivation of the Equation e =mc2 from the Universal Uncertainty Principles

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 9 Pages.

The present paper is concerned with the derivation of the Einstein's formula of equivalence of mass and energy, E = mc^2 , from the universal uncertainty relations. These relations are a generalization of the original uncertainty relations developed by Werner Heisenberg in 1927. Thus, this approach unifies two of the most important laws of physics as provides the proof of a) the quantum mechanical nature of the above formula, and, b) the correctness of the universal uncertainty relations that I found in 2012.

Holographic Two-Step Gravito-Electromagnetic Interaction, Matter-Antimatter Vibration, Non-Doppler Quasar Oscillation and Dark Matter

Authors: Francis M. Sanchez
Comments: 4 Pages.

It is shown how misleading is the Einstein propagating photon, which prevented the discovery of the matter-antimatter vibration. The gravitation - electricity symmetry is patent in the holographic two-step interaction scheme, illustrating Cosmical Immergence. This leads to a logical interpretation of the incredible non-Doppler oscillations, observed by Kotov in several quasars, which confirms Coherent Holographic Cosmology. The correct prediction of Eddington's Large Number for the number of atoms in the observable Universe (136 × 2^256) leads to a simple natural interpretation for dark matter : matter in quadrature oscillation. The Gabor holographic condition leads to the gravitational speed 2.46 × 1036 c and a graviton mass 3.69 × 10-67 kg.

Numeric Formula for the Masses of Baryons

Authors: Rodolfo A. Frino
Comments: 3 Pages.

A numeric formula for the masses of composite particles made of three quarks is presented. The relationship, which uses “discontinuous” quantum numbers, predicts the masses of 16 baryons (including 2 baryon resonances) and one lepton: the tau particle, with an accuracy of, at least, 3 decimal places. The maximum accuracy of the formula is 7 decimal places and corresponds to the two new Ξ b- baryon resonances recorded by the LHCb experiment at CERN. The relationship presented in this paper suggests the existence of a general formula for the mass of all known particles, which is yet, to be discovered.

Unlocking the Mystery of Interference Patterns in Electron and Photon Double-Slit Experiments and the Puzzle of ‘Waves Without Medium’

Authors: Henok Tadesse
Comments: 10 Pages.

The formidable problem with double-slit experiments is: if electrons and photons exhibit wave properties (seen as interference patterns), then what is waving? What is the medium for transmission of ‘electron waves’? Such a medium has been disproved experimentally, in the case of the photon, and not even conceivable for the electron. Erwin Schrodinger was on the right track with his view of the electron as a ‘smeared’ object, rather than as a point particle. Then how is a wave possible without a medium? How can a wave property and a particle property co-exist in a single physical entity (wave- particle duality)? Nature uses a simple and subtle trick : the average electron mass density at a given region of space is directly proportional to the root mean square (RMS) intensity of oscillation (velocity) of the electron (the electron wave) in that region. The instantaneous mass density of the electron at a given point is directly proportional to the instantaneous magnitude of vibrational velocity of the electron at that point. The average photon energy density in a given region of space is directly proportional to the root mean square of rate of change of the electric and magnetic fields in that region. The instantaneous energy density of the photon at a given point of space and time is directly proportional to the magnitude of rate of change of the electric and magnetic fields at that point. The rate of change of electric and magnetic fields in turn depends on the frequency, amplitude and phase of the wave. The electron mass and photon energy will always be concentrated at regions of high wave amplitude. This means that the electron and the photon are dragged by their respective waves. The new theory provides a hint on the mystery behind Planck’s relation: E=h.f. Higher frequency photons have higher energy than lower frequency photons just because higher frequency photons also have higher amplitudes of electric and magnetic field oscillations. If we assume that ordinary waves also have the same fundamental properties as electron waves, then we may be able to explain the lack of backward propagation in Huygens’ principle. We may be able to explain why the bouncing oil droplet in the Couder-Fort oil bath experiment starts to go in the direction of the wave propagation.
