Does Newton's Constant Vary Due to Gravitomagnetic Torsion?

Authors: Brent Jarvis
Comments: 7 Pages.

Periodic oscillations are observed in Newton's gravitational constant (G) which coincide with length of day data obtained from the International Earth Rotation and Reference System. It was determined by Anderson et. al. (2015) that the oscillatory period of G is ≈ 5.9 years (5.899 ± 0.062 years), which is close to one−half the principle period of solar activity. It will be shown, from mathematical analysis, that the variations in G are concomitant with gravitomagnetically induced torsion on the Earth's spin during the ≈ 5.9 year period.

Doubling Number of Z Bosons While Eliminating H Bosons: Result of Perceived Dark Matter Annihilation

Authors: George R. Briggs
Comments: 1 Page.

Abstract: My recent publication viXra 1605.0223 indicates that dark matter requires more energy than 34 GEV gamma radiation to annihilate: the best one can do is annihilate -H bosons with the aid of -Z bosons (2(H-Z)). The result doubles the number of -Z bosons very close to the centers of spiral galaxies. This lessens the energy needed to manufacture stars spiraling away from the center of the galaxy.

X-Particle as a Solution for the Cosmological Constant Problem

Authors: Wook Koh
Comments: 10 Pages.

The cosmological constant is a fundamental problem in modern physics, and arises at the intersection between general relativity and quantum field theory. In this paper we show how the cosmological constant problem can be solved by X-particles of dark energy with the repulsive force proportional to energy density.

The Geometrodynamic Foundation of Electrodynamics: A Brief Summary

Authors: Jay R. Yablon
Comments: 8 Pages.

We summarize how the Lorentz Force motion observed in classical electrodynamics may be understood as geodesic motion derived by minimizing the variation of the proper time along the worldline of test charges in external potentials, while the spacetime metric remains invariant under, and all other fields in spacetime remain independent of, any rescaling of the charge-to-mass ratio q/m. In order for this to occur, time is dilated or contracted due to attractive and repulsive electromagnetic interactions respectively, in very much the same way that time is dilated due to relative motion in special relativity. As such, it becomes possible to lay an entirely geometrodynamic foundation for classical electrodynamics.

Engineering Approach to Explanation of Special Relativity Theory

Authors: Jaroslav Hynecek
Comments: 4 Pages. none

In this short note it is shown that the Special Relativity Theory (SRT) is a theory describing the reality correctly providing that certain conditions that are encapsulated in the theory’s assumptions are satisfied. This is demonstrated by using a simple capacitor, which avoids many difficulties of a relatively complex mathematics that leads many physics hobby enthusiasts to a wrong conclusion claiming that the theory cannot be correct and needs to be changed.

Dark Energy/Fermion Ratio Matches E8 Symmetry, Cyclic Universe Within 1/2% if Dark Matter Annihilation Gamma Emission Energy is 2(H-Z)

Authors: George R. Briggs
Comments: 2 Pages.

Abstract: The latest experimentally measured 68.3%/26.8% dark energy/fermion mass ratio matches cyclic universe, E8 symmetry theory to within 1/2% if dark matter annihilation gamma radiation energy is 2 x 33.81 GEV. This is the positive mass-energy of 2(H-Z) bosons, and indicates that the Z dark bosons were not not annihilated but were re-incorporated in positive energy form.

Final Results from Projective Unified Field Theory (Puft): Motion of Bodies, Anomalous Rotation Curves, Anomalous Pioneer Effect, Heat Production Via Cosmological Expansion, Maxwell-Faraday Equations,dark Matter,accelerated Expansion of the Universe Model

Authors: Ernst Schmutzer
Comments: 20 Pages.

The two preceding papers published recently in viXra [1] and in [2] are geometrically grounded and physically based on the following forces: gravitation, electromagnetism and scalarism (new phenomenon of Nature, hypothetically introduced 1980) [3]. The cosmology of a closed symmetric isotropic world model is treated, enlarging the Einstein theory, based on fundamental new field equations and conservation laws (additional terms), being the result of the projection onto the 4-dimensional space-time. The physical basis of this world model is a two-component gas-mixture: mechanical dark-matter scalon-gas (particle: scalon) and electromagnetic photon-gas. The numerical procedure by resolving the appearing system of equations yields: Urstart of the expansion (named by the author) without singularity (no Big Bang) [4]. This way leads to the acceleration effect of the cosmological expansion (about 8 billion years after Urstart), according to the empirical detection some years ago. Further correct rendering of the Hubble parameter. The age of finish of our world model yields 28 billion of years. On such theoretical and (up to now) empirical basis we present here in this Paper 3 following results as hypotheses: 1. Gravitational-scalaric field of a sphere. 2. Geodetic equation and general equation of motion of a moving body. 3. Anomalous pioneer effect of moving space-crafts (departure from Newtonian behaviour). 4. Anomalous rotation curves of stars, moving around the centres of spiral galaxies (characteristic deviations from Newtonian mechanics). 5. Heat production in expanding moving bodies. 6. Reinterpretation of Maxwell-Faraday equations. 7. Status of Dark energy and accelerated cosmological expansion.

Gravitational Waves and Dark Matter

Authors: George Rajna
Comments: 18 Pages.

A theoretical analysis examines the possibility that the black holes detected by LIGO serve as dark matter. [6] In a landmark discovery for physics and astronomy, international scientists said Thursday they have glimpsed the first direct evidence of gravitational waves, or ripples in space-time, which Albert Einstein predicted a century ago. [5] Scientists at the National Institute for Space Research in Brazil say an undiscovered type of matter could be found in neutron stars (illustration shown). Here matter is so dense that it could be 'squashed' into strange matter. This would create an entire 'strange star'-unlike anything we have seen. [4] The changing acceleration of the electrons explains the created negative electric field of the magnetic induction, the electromagnetic inertia, the changing relativistic mass and the Gravitational Force, giving a Unified Theory of the physical forces. Taking into account the Planck Distribution Law of the electromagnetic oscillators also, we can explain the electron/proton mass rate and the Weak and Strong Interactions.

Is "Dark Energy" Just an Effect of Gravitational Time Dilation?

Authors: Steven Kenneth Kauffmann
Comments: 13 Pages.

During an epoch when a uniform-density expanding dust ball's radius doesn't sufficiently exceed the Schwarzschild value, the dust ball's expansion rate will actually be increasing because the dominant gravitational time dilation effect diminishes as the dust ball expands. However this "acceleration of expansion" is absent in the "comoving" FLRW dust-ball model because the "comoving" fixing of the 00 component of the metric tensor to unity suppresses gravitational time dilation, an obvious fact in the static gravitational field limit and manifested in the "comoving" FLRW model by the precisely Newtonian form of its Friedmann equation of motion. Therefore we extend to all dust-ball initial conditions the singular Oppenheimer-Snyder transformation from "comoving" to "standard" coordinates which they carried out for a particular initial condition. In "standard" coordinates we find that gravitational and speed time dilation is wired into the equation of motion of the dust ball's dynamical radius. All sufficiently small dust balls undergo acceleration rather than deceleration of expansion, but dust balls with sufficiently highly "hyperbolic" initial conditions actually undergo acceleration of expansion at any size. Attempts to account for the observed acceleration of the expansion of the universe by means of an ad hoc nonzero cosmological constant thus seem to be quite unnecessary.

A Resonance of Cherenkov Radiation Angles with Parallel Bremsstrahlung Radiation

Authors: Michael John Sarnowski
Comments: 7 Pages.

When a charged particle travels faster than light, it emits Cherenkov radiation. When a charged particle is accelerated it emits a braking radiation called Bremsstrahlung. Inside a proton are the many configurations of the nucleons. It is proposed here, and likely proposed by others that there may be some equivalent process that there is a constant acceleration of charged particles or superluminal movement of charged particles that causes the mass of the proton or other particles. It is proposed that the ratios of the masses of particles to the mass of the neutron is related to ratio of the Bremsstrahlung to the Bremsstrahlung where velocity is parallel to acceleration. In the case of the mass ratio of the proton to the neutron, the possible form of the equation was found first. This paper is an attempt of an explanation and derivation for the equation that very closely, within the known Codata 2014 mass ratio of the proton to the neutron, gives the mass ratio of the proton to the neutron. An equation is developed below that uses the coupling dependence and Cherenkov radiation angles summing the radiation angles from to angles and integrating through what may appear to be multiple levels of dimensions. This equation then uses a component of Bremsstrahlung radiation and proposes that there may be some relationship to both Bremsstrahlung radiation and Cherenkov type radiation within the nucleons that causes some type of resonance that stabilizes the masses of the fundamental particles. This resonance is potentially demonstrated for a proton. This is a continuation of Sarnowski’s Sphere Theory for the construction of the universe.

Dark Matter Cosmology Based on the Projective Unified Field Theory

Authors: Ernst Schmutzer
Comments: 16 Pages.

The Projective Unified Field Theory (PUFT) of the author is applied for a dark matter cosmos. Detailed results appeared recently in two volumes [1]. The set of formulas needed for cosmology (including hypothetic empiric predictions) is presented in [2]. The main essence of this paper lays in following assumptions: dark matter basis of the mechanical part of the cosmological gas component; taking into account the hypothetical scalarism phenomenon, introduced by the author at the GRG-congress 1980 in Jena [3]. One of our main results is the singularity-free beginning of the cosmos model investigated (Urstart instead of Big Bang). The occurring numerical result for the Hubble-parameter is physically full satisfactory.

It is first shown that there is no exchange of energy-momentum during planetary motion. Then, starting with the field equations, it is shown that the gravitational field does not exchange energy-momentum with any form of matter. Conclusion: In general relativity, there is no gravitational energy, momentum, stress, force or power.

Rewriting General Relativity Based on Dark Energy

Authors: Wook Koh, Soonhoi Ha
Comments: 12 Pages.

There are strong indications the general relativity theory is incomplete. Observational data that is taken as evidence for dark energy and dark matter could indicate the need for new physics. In this paper, general relativity is rewritten based on the X-particles of dark energy. The goal is to help classical mechanics and general relativity to reconcile with the laws of quantum physics.

Projective Unified Field Theory today

Authors: Ernst Schmutzer
Comments: 12 Pages.

The short reproduction of the Projective Unified Field Theory of the author (including empiric predictions) will be presented during the subsequent time: Fundamental 5-dimensional physical laws within the projective space and projection of these basic laws onto space-time. Transition from this 4-dimensional complex of the physical laws to the (better understandable) 3-dimensional version with new additional physical terms, being prepared for a physical interpretation (influence of cosmological expansion). Numerical presentation of the predicted astrophysical and cosmological effects: anomalous motion of bodies according to the pioneer effect, anomalous rotation curve of rotating bodies around a gravitational centre. One should take note of my hypothetic result that the true origin of these both effects (pioneer effect and rotation curve effect) seems to have the same cause, namely the overwhelming dark matter existing in our Universe.

On the Origin of Gravitational Force

Authors: Zhi Cheng
Comments: 5 Pages.

Equivalence principle is the basement of general relativity theory. It points out that the gravitational force is equivalent to the inertial force. However, the general relativity theory does not give the reason. In this paper, we assume the space is a kind of elastic media. The energy can take pressure on the space. It will make the space curved. The curved space-time produces gravitational force. This paper gives the mathematical calculation based on elasticity theory to show that this assumption is true. It also gives the accurate relationship between mass and gravitational force. The relationship is in line with the conclusion of general relativity.

Dark Energy Warp Drive

Authors: Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr
Comments: 14 Pages.

Gabriele U. Varieschi and Zily Burstein in arXiv 1208.3706 showed that with Conformal Gravity Alcubierre Warp Drive does not need Exotic Matter. In E8 Physics of viXra 1602.0319 Conformal Gravity gives Dark Energy which expands our Universe and can curve Spacetime. Clovis Jacinto de Matos and Christian Beck in arXiv 0707.1797 said “... based on the model of dark energy a proposed by Beck and Mackey ... assume... that photons ... can exist in two different phases: A gravitationally active phase where the zeropoint fluctuations contribute to the [dark energy] cosmological constant /\, and a gravitationally inactive phase where they do not contribute to /\. ... this type of model of dark energy can lead to measurable effects in supeconductors, via ... interaction with the Cooper pairs in the superconductor. ... the transition between the two graviphoton’s phases ... occurs at the critical temperature Tc of the superconductor, which defines a cutoff frequency of opoint fluctuations ... Graviphotons can form weakly bounded states with Cooper pairs ... [which] ... form a condensate ...[in]... superconduct[ors] ... the cosmological cutoff frequency [could be measured] through the measurement of the spectral density of the noise current in resistively shunted Josephson Junctions ...”. Xiao Hu and Shi-Zeng Lin in arXiv 0911.5371 and 1206.516 showed that BSCCO superconducting crystals are natural Josephson Junctions. A Pentagonal Dipyramid configuration of 16 BSCCO crystals cannot close in flat 3-dim space, but can close if Conformal Dark Energy accumulated in the BSCCO Josephson Junctions curves spacetime. Such spacetime curvature allows construction of a Conformal Gravity Alcubierre Warp Drive that does not need Exotic Matter.

The Cyclic Universe E8 Symmetry Theory Updated: the Critical Role of the TH, TtH, TZ, and TtZ Fermibosonic Entities Seen at the LHC

Authors: George R. Briggs
Comments: 4 Pages.

Abstract: It has been almost a year since I updated the cyclic universe E8 symmetry theory. The best starting point is the big bang. At this point our universe was the smallest it could be because gravity was active but all matter was in the special-entity form of fermibosons, which had effectively zero mass, and no big crunch could take place. Instead, the universe grew until it reached its present gigantic size and the fermibosons mostly disintegrated back into fermions and negative mc^2 dark matter. The dark matter eventually annihilated, producing 40 GEV gamma radiation and simple expansion of space. Someday the expansion will end: there will be a contraction (not a crunch) of the universe and the cycle will repeat.

The Return of Absolute Simultaneity and Its Relationship to Einstein’s Relativity of Simultaneity

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 11 Pages.

In this paper we show how Einstein's relativity of simultaneity is fully consistent with anisotropic one-way speed of light. We get the same end result and observations as predicted by Einstein, but with a very different interpretation. We show that the relativity of simultaneity is an apparent effect due to an Einstein clock synchronization error, which is rooted in assuming that the one-way speed of light is the same as the well-tested round-trip speed of light. Einstein's relativity of simultaneity leads to several bizarre paradoxes recently introduced by Haug (2016a, 2016b).

The Return of Absolute Simultaneity? A New Way of Synchronizing Clocks Across Reference Frames

Authors: Espen Gaarder Haug
Comments: 7 Pages.

This paper introduces a new way to synchronize clocks distanced apart and a way to synchronize clocks between reference frames. Based on a simple synchronization thought experiment, we claim that relativity of simultaneity must be incomplete. Einstein's special relativity theory predicts relativity of simultaneity and that two events that happen simultaneously in one reference frame will not happen simultaneously as observed from another reference frame. Relativity of simultaneity is directly linked to a particular way of synchronizing clocks (Einstein-Poincar\'{e} synchronization) that again assumes that the one-way speed of light is isotropic and identical with the well-tested round-trip speed of light. In the new thought experiment introduced here, there is reason to believe that two distant events can happen simultaneously in both frames. Still, we agree that these events will not happen simultaneously as measured with Einstein synchronized clocks. The claim here is that Einstein synchronized clocks lead to apparent relativity of simultaneity due to a clock synchronization error rooted in the assumption of isotropic one-way speed of light.

Space Axis of Time-Space Frame of Reference for Special Relativity Theory and The Core of the Theory

Authors: Tsuneaki Takahashi
Comments: 4 Pages.

It may be hard to understand Lorentz transformation intuitively because it is derived inductively from the light speed constancy for every inertia systems. Specially the definition of space-axis (time zero line) is unclear although time-axis definition may be reasonable when the Lorentz transformation is recognized as a rotation of frame of reference on the Minkowski space. On such situation, Lorentz transformation may become understandable if the logic of space-axis definition become clear. And light speed constancy may not be an axiom, it should be what to be derived.

Frame Dragging Remedy for Polarizable Vacuum Theory at High Speed in Deep Space Transport

Authors: Jerry L. Decker
Comments: 14 Pages. Frame Dragging Predicted By Modified Polarizable Vacuum Theory

Frame dragging resulted from modifications of Polarizable Vacuum Theory that were done to bring high velocity terms into PV consistent with established science of energy and momentum at high speed. It was found that velocity terms could not be brought into PV theory without formalism for exchange of kinetic energy with the vacuum space. Planck’s Law in general and Heisenberg Uncertainty in a specific case were used to develop a mechanism for continual exchange of kinetic energy with the local vacuum. The mechanism calls for incurring equal exchange of energy with space when acceleration does not occur, and unequal exchange when a physical object is accelerating. Accumulating kinetic energy in space was found to polarize the vacuum in a way equivalent to the polarizing parameter K of Harold Puthoff. Frame dragging results from the continual increase of vacuum stress energy trailing longitudinally and propagating transversely from an accelerating deep space vehicle.

Interpretational Scenarios of Special Relativity

Authors: Bernardo Sotomayor Valdivia
Comments: 10 Pages.

This monograph was motivated by the following question posted by the author at the ResearchGate (RG) Website: In the context of Special Relativity (SR): is it time dilation, clock frequency increase, both of the above or none of the above? At the writing of this document there were over 520 RG postings related to the above question by many different scholars/researchers, both proponents and dissenters of Special Relativity. The discourse of the answers clearly shows in my opinion that most of the apparent incongruencies mentioned in the posts about Special Relativity were not necessarily because of its formulation, but because of the different interpretations that arise from the physical effects that the Lorentz Transformation (LT) predicts. This is not to say that SR has or has not problems as a theory but that its general acceptability is hampered by the many interpretational paradoxes that can be formulated because of its notoriously ambiguous concepts regarding time dilation and length contraction. Not surprisingly, the concepts of relativistic momentum and energy were not subject to scrutiny, I suspect because of their already accepted relative nature and their established relativistic relation to motion as empirically demonstrated in particle accelerators and the like. Needless to say, most of the so called incongruencies that were posted dealt with time dilation, as to its meaning or as to whether it is real or apparent. As usual on RG posts, many of the answers were diametrically opposed. In this monograph, I propose a comparative scenario of SR that is shown to be free of incongruencies or paradoxes.

Simple Experiment That Unequivocally Verify Relativity.

Authors: Chan Rasjid, Kah Chew
Comments: 2 Pages.

Although many experiments have been cited as empirical verification of special relativity, they are not experiments that could not have questions raised about their validity as proofs. There is one simple experiment that could be carried out to put to rest, incontrovertibly, the controversies concerning the validity of special relativity - by a direct measurement of the speed of beta particles from beta decay. If special relativity is correct, no electrons would be found to go faster than light speed. If special relativity is invalid, then kinetic energy obeys the old 1 / 2 mv2 formula. Some beta particles could be ejected with kinetic energy greater than 1 MeV; such electrons would be detected to travel at about twice the speed of light. Though it is one of the simplest experiment that many laboratories over the world could perform,until now, the experiment has yet to be carried out.

The G\"{o}del Universe and the Einstein-Podolsky-Rosen Paradox

Authors: Moninder Singh Modgil
Comments: 11 Pages.

Notion of causality in G\"{o}del universe, is compared with what is implied by the Einstein-Podolski-Rosen (EPR) type experiments of quantum mechanics. Red shift of light from distant galaxies is explained by employing Segal's compact time coordinate - in the G\"{o}del universe - which indeed was considered by G\"{o}del in his seminal paper. Various possibilities for the rotation of the universe are discussed. It is note worthy that in recent years, the scope of research on G\"{o}del univese, has expanded to include topics in string theory, supersymmetry and embedding of black holes.

Replacement of Einstein’s Relativity Theory with a New One: Why the Second Postulate is Superfluous?

Authors: A. V. Mamaev
Comments: 11 Pages. The article was refused from publishing in EPL as the paper does not meet the criteria for novelty.

My purpose consisted in creation of a new relativistic space-time theory instead of Einstein’s Relativity Theory, but basing upon only one postulate. This could become feasible only if a law of light propagation in a moving inertial reference frame could be made a consequence of the relativity postulate. It was made a reality by discovery by P.M. Rapier of a quadratic dependence of light speed upon the speed of a light source. Considering various ways of making the second postulate superfluous the most short of them was through introducing into the theory of a new concept “light speed in a moving inertial reference frame” by means of usage of a four-dimensional Minkovski’s formalism. This new concept speed was defined as equal to a fourth component of a four-dimensional speed of any moving particle. Then using this newly introduced concept the time-measurement unit was calculated for a moving light clock that occurred to be equal to the time measurement unit of a stationary light clock. And as a very happy event the time dilation effect was deleted from the theory.

The Identity of the Inertial Mass with the Gravity Mass

Authors: Miroslav Pardy
Comments: 5 Pages. original article

The motion of the mathematical extra-terrestrial pendulum is considered in the spherical gravitational field. The potential energy of the pendulum bob is approximated to give the nonlinear equation of motion. After solving it by the Landau-Migdal method we obtain the frequency of motion and the swing amplitude. The crucial point of our experiment is, that if the inertial mass m depends on its distance from the reference body M, then the calculated frequuency of our pendulum is not identical with the measured frequency. This crucial knowledge of the pendulum project can have substantional influence on the future development of general relativity and physics of elementary particles.

On The Origin of Magnetism And Gravitation And On The Nature of Electricity And Matter

Authors: Hochecker, Hans-Joerg
Comments: 28 Pages.

I can show that gravitation is an electric effect. To this, it is necessary to better understand the qualities of the electric charges and their forces. I start by showing that the magnetic field can be represented as an angled electric field. To this, the electric field must have two qualities: the dependence of the electric force on the velocity, and the electric anti-field. All previous cognitions on electrodynamics stay with it untouched. Then, I apply these two new qualities to gravitation, and it turns out that gravitation is an electric effect if a third quality applies to the electric field: the quantization of the energy transfer of the electric field. These three new qualities complete our picture of electrodynamics. Finally, I go to the origins of the three new qualities with the help of the early quantum mechanics. This turns out well by representing the electric charge as a spacetime wave, in which its frequency corresponds to its mass.

Does Newton's Constant Vary Due to Gravitomagnetic Torsion?

Periodic oscillations are observed in Newton's gravitational constant (G) which coincide with length of day data obtained from the International Earth Rotation and Reference System. It was determined by Anderson et. al. (2015) that the oscillatory period of G is ≈ 5.9 years (5.899 ± 0.062 years), which is close to one−half the principle period of solar activity. It will be shown, from mathematical analysis, that the variations in G are concomitant with gravitomagnetically induced torsion on the Earth's spin during the ≈ 5.9 year period.

The Geometrodynamic Foundation of Classical Electrodynamics: A Brief Summary

Authors: Jay R. Yablon
Comments: 8 Pages.

We summarize how the Lorentz Force motion observed in classical electrodynamics may be understood as geodesic motion derived by minimizing the variation of the proper time along the worldline of test charges in external potentials, while the spacetime metric remains invariant under, and all other fields in spacetime remain independent of, any rescaling of the charge-to-mass ratio q/m. In order for this to occur, time is dilated or contracted due to attractive and repulsive electromagnetic interactions respectively, in very much the same way that time is dilated due to relative motion in special relativity, without contradicting the latter’s well-established experimental content. As such, it becomes possible to lay an entirely geometrodynamic foundation for classical electrodynamics in four spacetime dimensions.

Is "Dark Energy" Just an Effect of Gravitational Time Dilation?

Authors: Steven Kenneth Kauffmann
Comments: 13 Pages.

During an epoch when a uniform-density expanding dust ball's radius doesn't sufficiently exceed the Schwarzschild value, the dust ball's expansion rate will actually be increasing because the dominant gravitational time dilation effect diminishes as the dust ball expands. However this "acceleration of expansion" is absent in the "comoving" FLRW dust-ball model because the "comoving" fixing of the 00 component of the metric tensor to unity suppresses gravitational time dilation, an obvious fact in the static gravitational field limit and manifested in the "comoving" FLRW model by the precisely Newtonian form of its Friedmann equation of motion. Therefore we extend to all dust-ball initial conditions the singular Oppenheimer-Snyder transformation from "comoving" to "standard" coordinates which they carried out for a particular initial condition. In "standard" coordinates we find that gravitational and speed time dilation is wired into the equation of motion of the dust ball's dynamical radius. All sufficiently small dust balls undergo acceleration rather than deceleration of expansion, but dust balls with sufficiently highly "hyperbolic" initial conditions actually undergo acceleration of expansion at any size. Attempts to account for the observed acceleration of the expansion of the universe by means of an ad hoc nonzero cosmological constant thus seem to be quite unnecessary.

A Resonance of Cherenkov Radiation Angles with Parallel Bremsstrahlung Radiation

Authors: Michael John Sarnowski
Comments: 7 Pages. Corrected Typos.

When a charged particle travels faster than light, it emits Cherenkov radiation. When a charged particle is accelerated it emits a braking radiation called Bremsstrahlung. Inside a proton are the many configurations of the nucleons. It is proposed here, and likely proposed by others that there may be some equivalent process that there is a constant acceleration of charged particles or superluminal movement of charged particles that causes the mass of the proton or other particles. It is proposed that the ratios of the masses of particles to the mass of the neutron is related to ratio of the Bremsstrahlung to the Bremsstrahlung where velocity is parallel to acceleration. In the case of the mass ratio of the proton to the neutron, the possible form of the equation was found first. This paper is an attempt of an explanation and derivation for the equation that very closely, within the known Codata 2014 mass ratio of the proton to the neutron, gives the mass ratio of the proton to the neutron. An equation is developed below that uses the coupling dependence and Cherenkov radiation angles summing the radiation angles from to angles and integrating through what may appear to be multiple levels of dimensions. This equation then uses a component of Bremsstrahlung radiation and proposes that there may be some relationship to both Bremsstrahlung radiation and Cherenkov type radiation within the nucleons that causes some type of resonance that stabilizes the masses of the fundamental particles. This resonance is potentially demonstrated for a proton. This is a continuation of Sarnowski’s Sphere Theory for the construction of the universe.

Herein we describe our analysis and results.
