Theory of an Electro-Cordic Field Operating in Quantum Systems II

Authors: R. Wayte
Comments: 32 Pages.

Abstract: The physical nature of proposed electro-cordic guidewaves has been demonstrated by applying the theory to relativistic potential wells and a simple harmonic system. Interference observed in Young's slits and the Michelson interferometer has also been explained as due to active guidewave fields controlling photons. Entanglement is interpreted in terms of real coupling by interlinked guidewaves between particles or photons; so wavefunction collapse occurs when this physical link is broken. Superconductivity requires real material binding for electron-pair creation and correlation.

Theory of an Electro-Cordic Field Operating in Quantum Systems I.

Authors: R. Wayte
Comments: 18 Pages.

Abstract: A theory of electro-cordic guidewaves is developed to supplement the standard acausal statistical laws of quantum mechanics and account for the growth of precision interference patterns from apparently random quantum events. Every effort is made to reveal the physical reality of the guidewaves which organise photons or electrons into predictable states. Einstein’s equations of general relativity have also been applied to hydrogen, to yield energy levels identical to those of Dirac’s theory. A companion paper will cover other applications of electro-cordic guidewaves in quantum theory to interference, tunnelling, non-local phenomena, and superconductivity.

The Wave Equation and Spherical Time

Authors: Gary D. Simpson
Comments: 24 Pages.

The mathematical treatment of time is revised to be spherical rather than linear. The resulting wave equation is solved for spherical time and space. The resulting solution has a finite value for r = 0 and t = 0. Also, it is simple to produce and equation that is inversely proportional to r^2 as is necessary for gravity and electro-statics.

Electron Spin Precession for the Time Fractional Pauli Equation

Authors: Hosein Nasrolahpour
Comments: 7 Pages.

In this work, we aim to extend the application of the fractional calculus in the realm of quantum mechanics. We present a time fractional Pauli equation containing Caputo fractional derivative. By use of the new equation we study the electron spin precession problem in a homogeneous constant magnetic field.

The Periodic Table and the MCAS Electron Orbital Model

Authors: Joel M Williams
Comments: 4 Pages. This document was accepted for inclusion in the 3rd International Conference on the Periodic table held August 14-16, 2012 in Cusco, Peru.

A useful periodic table of the elements provides a number of important facts for its user: valence, metallic vs non-metallic compound formation and atomic weight being some of the more valuable. The current popular version has proven quite adequate in this regard for many chemists. A stubborn adherence to the stoic spdf-quantum-theory model, however, creates problems. Thus, this perspective requires that H be placed over Li and/or F even though it has little or no chemical similarity to either of them. This view of the electron structure of atoms also requires a number of “rules” and “hybridizations” to explain even the simplest aspects surrounding the electron structure and chemical bonding; mathematical orthogonality between periodic levels is a sham; and increasingly weirder shaped orbitals are needed to make the math fit the stoic spdf model. Transition and rare-earth/lanthanide series appear without physical rationale. In light of all these spdf-associated problems, the arrangement and behavior of the elements in the periodic table is addressed in this document according to the dynamic MCAS electron orbital model.

The Wave Equation and Rotation

Authors: Gary D. Simpson
Comments: 32 Pages.

A vector solution to the spherical wave equation is presented. The solution requires rotation of the wave media and a minor revision to the form of the wave equation.

The Mathematical Basis of the Fine Structure Constant

Authors: Robert Tetlow
Comments: 4 Pages.

It can be shown that the Fine Structure Constant can be defined as: α ≡ 1/√(( -2eπ -e + 2πe + eπ2 + π2)) = 0.007297352558.

A Challenge to Quantized Absorption by Experiment and Theory

Authors: Eric Stanley Reiter
Comments: 10 pages. Essay was submitted to 2012 FQXI contest

After recognizing dubious assumptions regarding light detectors, a famous beam-split coincidence test of the photon model was performed with gamma-rays instead of visible light. A similar test was performed to split alpha-rays. Both tests are described in detail to justify conclusions. In both tests, coincidence rates greatly exceeded chance, leading to an unquantum effect. This is a strong experimental contradiction to quantum theory and photons. These new results are strong evidence of the long abandoned accumulation hypothesis, also known as the loading theory, and draw attention to assumptions applied to key past experiments that led to quantum mechanics. The history of the loading theory is outlined, including the loading theory of Planck's second theory of 1911. A popular incomplete version of the loading theory that convinced physics students to reject it is exposed. The loading theory is developed by deriving a wavelength equation similar to de Broglie's, from the photoelectric effect equation. The loading theory is applied to the photoelectric effect, Compton effect, and charge quantization, now free of wave-particle duality. It is unlikely that the loading theory can apply to recent claimed success of giant molecule multi-path interference/diffraction, and that claim is quantitatively challenged. All told, the evidence reduces quantized absorption to an illusion, due to quantized emission combined with newly identified properties of the matter-wave.
