How a Randall-Sundrum Brane-World Effective Potential Influences Inflation Physics

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 12 pages, 2007 submission to STAIF conference, prior to author's interest in entropy/graviton production. mix as reflected in adaptation of Y. J. Ng's quantum infinite statistics as done by Beckwith, in 2009

In string theory, even when there are ten to the thousand power vacuum states, does inflation produce overwhelmingly one preferred type of vacuum state? We respond affirmatively to questions whether existence of graviton production is confirmable using present detector methodology. We use an explicit Randall-Sundrum brane-world effective potential as congruent with an inflationary quadratic potential start. This occurs after Bogomolnyi inequality eliminates need for ad hoc assumption of axion wall mass high temperature related disappearing. Graviton production has explicit links with a five-dimensional brane-world negative cosmological constant and a four-dimensional positive valued cosmological constant, whose temperature dependence permits an early universe graviton production activity burst. We show how di quarks, wave functions, and various forms tie into the Wheeler-De Witt equation. This permits investigating a discretized quantum bounce and a possible link to the initial phases of present universe's evolution with a prior universe's collapse to the bounce point - the initial starting point to inflationary expansion. This opens a possibility of realistically investigating gravitons as part of a space propulsion system and dealing with problems from a beam of gravity waves, which would create a g-force because the geodestic structure is near field. It can be applied to existing and to new space propulsion concepts.

How Can Brane World Physics Influence the Existence of a Relic Graviton Burst in the Onset of Inflation?

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 25 pages, concept paper used as foundation of initial work given to STAIF 2007 and 2008, before the author was aware of the issue of confluence of classical and quantum predictions of relic particle prediction. Has a very different flavor of interpretation as far as how to understand the importance of relic graviton production.

We use an explicit Randall-Sundrum brane world effective potential as congruent with conditions needed to form a minimum entropy starting point for an early universe vacuum state. We justify this by pointing to the Ashtekar, Pawlowski, and Singh (2006) article about a prior universe being modeled via their quantum bounce hypothesis which states that this prior universe geometrically can be modeled via a discretized Wheeler - De Witt equation, with it being the collapsing into a quantum bounce point singularity converse of the present day universe expanding from the quantum bounce point so delineated in their calculations. In doing so, we use thermal/ gravitational inputs into our present universe, using a simplified model of graviton production similar to what was done by Wheeler in the 1970s for spin two gravitons . Doing so permits modeling of experimental conditions needed for directional graviton production which conceivably could be used for space craft in the foreseeable future once an experimental verification of early universe conditions for graviton production and power radiation are finalized. This leads to intense power production using a model for power production reported by Dr. Fontana in 2005 in the new frontiers section of STAIF. We report upon what we think is a range of intense graviton production parameters in the onset of cosmological inflation. This builds upon an idea of a semi resonant cavity effect for spin two gravitons, with the walls dissolving after ten to the minus 43 seconds, with a build up of temperature, and a steady energy insertion leading to , after axion wall collapse due to rising temperatures, a massive release of relic gravitons at the same time the initiation of inflation takes place. This answers the apparent incongruency of low entropy, low temperatures postulated by S. Carroll, and J. Chen, with a naturally occurring 'laboratory' as to necessary and sufficient conditions needed to model graviton production on a large scale.

Incompatibility of the Relic Dark Energy Hypothesis with Physically Admissible Solutions to the Cosmic Ray Problem of Special Relativity

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 23 pages, 3 figures. Work done with Joe Lykken, FNAL, which was to show that Magueijo's propused revisions of Special relativity, the so called double special relativity hypothesis, was inconsistent with respect to cosmology. Accepted by FNAL theory division, rejected by a reviewer in GRG journal due to the fact that the derived scalar potential did not satisfy slow roll hypothesis of inflation. Non withstanding that the non compliance of the scalar potential with slow roll was cited to one of the primary faults of Magueijo's double special relativity

We offer evidence that the Trans Plankian hypothesis about Dark energy is incompatible with necessary and sufficient conditions for solving the cosmic ray problem along the lines presented by Magueijo et al. We can obtain conditions for a dispersion relationship congruent with the Trans Planckian hypothesis only if we cease trying to match cosmic ray data which is important in investigating special relativity. This leads us to conclude that the Trans Planckian hypothesis is inconsistent with respect to current astrophysical data and needs to be seriously revised .

Entropy Growth in the Early Universe , DM Models , with a Nod to the Lithium Problem

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 10 page slide show, given in the AP1 dark matter section hosted by Dr. Chardin, at the Paris observatory, in July 17th 2009 as a talk in the 12 Marcel Grossman meeting.

We outline how DM density profiles may be perturbed by entropy generation, and that in part due to relic graviton production. The interaction of gravitons as an entropy generator may influence relic neutrino and neutralino production, which would affect not only DM behavior, but in certain situations the relic abundance of Lithium in the early universe.

Entropy, Neutrino Physics, and the Lithium Problem Why Stars with no Lithium in Early Universe Exist

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 32 pages, and pre cursor of 3 page academic text requested by Dr Faessler for a special edition of the journal "Progress in Particle and Nuclear Physics" (Editor: Amand Faessler) which has been made of the author in lieu of a successful presentation in the "International School of Nuclear Physics, 31st Course : Neutrinos in Cosmology, in Astro-, Particle- and Nuclear Physics, Erice-Sicily September 16-24, 2009"

We present a first principle argument for modeling changes in BBN which may affect the probability that super massive stars forming before galactic structures formed may have been sans Lithium 7. The author believes that relic neutrinos plus gravitons may play a role in damping and modifying the density fluctuations of early space time, which have chances to affect nucleosynthesis.

Entropy Growth in the Early Universe and Confirmation of Initial Big Bang Conditions

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 8 pages, AIP conference proceedings entry 1168, "Numerical analysis and applied mathematics, 2009, Reythmono, Crete" , Greece; a peer reviewed submission to 'Symposium: The big challenge of Gravitational waves, a New Window into the future', as organized by Dr. Christian Corda of the Associazione Scientifica Gallieo Galilei: pp 1077-1083 of AIP conference proceedings 1168

This paper shows how increased entropy values from an initially low big bang level can be measured experimentally by counting relic gravitons. Furthermore the physical mechanism of this entropy increase is explained via analogies with early-universe phase transitions. The role of Jack Ng's (2007, 2008a, 2008b) revised infinite quantum statistics in the physics of gravitational wave detection is acknowledged. Ng's infinite quantum statistics can be used to show that ΔS ≈ ΔNgravitonsis a starting point to the increasing net universe cosmological entropy. Finally, in a nod to similarities with ZPE analysis, it is important to note that the resulting ΔS ≈ ΔNgravitons ≠ 1088, that in fact it is much lower, allowing for evaluating initial graviton production as an emergent field phenomena, which may be similar to how ZPE states can be used to extract energy from a vacuum if entropy is not maximized. The rapid increase in entropy so alluded to without near sudden increases to 1088 may be enough to allow successful modeling of relic graviton production for entropy in a manner similar to ZPE energy extraction from a vacuum state.

Hydrogen Cloud Separation as Direct Evidence of the Dynamics of the Universe.

Authors: Lyndon Ashmore
Comments: 11 Pages. This paper was presented at the CCC2 conference at port Angeles Washington State and is to be published along with the procedings of this conference by ASP.

Despite the idea of an expanding universe having been around for nearly one hundred years there is still no conclusive, direct evidence for expansion. This paper examines the Lyman Alpha forest in order to determine the average temperature and the average separation of Hydrogen clouds over the aging of the universe. A review of the literature shows that the clouds did once become further and further apart (showing expansion?) but are now evenly spaced (an indication of a static universe?). Doppler parameters give an indication of the temperature and/or the degree of disturbance of the clouds and the evidence is that the temperature or degree of disturbance is increasing rather than decreasing as required by an expanding universe. Whilst these results do not support any cosmology individually, they do support one where the universe expanded in the past but that expansion has now been arrested and the universe is now static. A separate mechanism for redshift would be required to explain why, in this scenario, the Hydrogen Clouds are evenly spaced in the local universe - but have differing redshifts. High z hydrogen cloud separation can be used to give an independent estimate on the lower limit of the age of the universe in an expanding model and it is found that the age must be far greater than the presently accepted value of 13.8 billion years - if the H1 clouds are to achieve their present separations without some mechanism other than inflation being involved.

(Anti) de Sitter Relativity, Modified Newtonian Dynamics, Noncommutative Phase Spaces and the Pioneer Anomaly

Authors: Carlos Castro
Comments: 24 Pages. This article appeared in Adv. Studies Theor. Phys., Vol. 2, no. 7 (2008) 309 - 332

It is shown how the de-Sitter Relativistic behaviour of the hyperbolic trajectory of Pioneer, due to the expansion of the Universe (non-vanishing cosmological constant), is the underlying physical reason for the observed anomalous acceleration of the Pioneer spacecraft of the order of c2/RH ~ 8.74 x 10-10 m/s2, where c is the speed of light and RH is the present Hubble scale. We display the explicit isomorphism among Yang's Noncommutative space-time algebra, the 4D Conformal algebra SO(4,2) and the area-bi-vector-coordinates algebra in Clifford spaces. The former Yang's algebra involves noncommuting coordinates and momenta with a minimum Planck scale λ (ultraviolet cutoff) and a minimum momentum p = h/R (maximal length R, infrared cutoff ). It is shown how Modified Newtonian dynamics is also a consequence of Yang's algebra resulting from the modified Poisson brackets. To finalize we study the deformed Kepler and free motion resulting from the modified Newtonian dynamics due to the Leznov-Khruschev noncommutative phase space algebra and which stems also from the Conformal algebra SO(4,2) in four dimensions. Numerical examples are found which yield results close to the experimental observations, but only in very extreme special cases and which seem to be consistent with a Machian view of the Universe.

Entropy, Neutrino Physics, and the Lithium Problem; Why Stars with no Lithium in Early Universe Exist?

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: Nine pages, part of source background for PPT which will be presented September 17th, 2009 in the Erice Nuclear physics school. Will be considerably refined for conference submission, in early November , 2009 for Nuclear physics journal which has proceedings of the 2009 nuclear physics school , Erice, Italy.

We review how graviton initial energy values are linkable to possible order of the Lorentz gravitational violation. Counter intuitively, the greatest Lorentz gravitational violation would be at lower to moderate initial velocity value conditions due to pre inflationary conditions. .We assume with rapid build up of graviton energies , convergence to flat space, Lorentz invariance as gravitons , due to a high level of initially extreme inflationary conditions speed up with introduction of massively boosted energies at the onset of the big bang. The coupling of neutrinos to gravitions would be enhanced as their wave lengths would initially be quite similar, i.e. very short. Consequences for the Lithium problem in stars, due to stellar formation, and gravitational perturbation on DM and will be discussed toward the end of this document. The neutrino / gravitational wave interaction leads to a damping factor in the intensity of GW of [1-5⋅(ρneutrino/ρ) + ϑ([ρneutrino/ρ]2 )] as far as relic GW as could be shown up in the CMBR data sets. This would have no bearing upon the peak of the frequency range, which is another matter entirely. The contention advanced, though is that proper analysis of the big bang, including initial treatment of nucleosynthesis may show a way forward to explain the recent discovery of early old stars with no lithium. Thereby closing one of the huge holes in the big bang, and lithium abundance.

Value of High-Frequency Relic Gravitational Wave (HFRGW) Detection to Astrophysics and Fabrication and Utilization of the Li-Baker HFRGW Detector

Authors: Andrew Beckwith, Robert M L Baker Jr.
Comments: 13 pages, possible submission to SPESIF, 2010 as a paper, and talk, and also a source for open discussion of hard ware requirements for a HFGW detector, with applications to detection of astrophysical GW. Inputs to this document await commentary and feed back from the Gravwave team. (I.e. this document may undergo many revisions)

A number of applications of High-Frequency Relic Gravitational Wave (HFRGW) detection to astrophysics are identified and a means for detecting them is presented that is sensitive enough to provide useful data. Observation of relic gravitational waves will provide vital information about the birth of the Universe and its early dynamical evolution as well as enable significant direct inferences to be drawn about the value of the Hubble parameter of the early universe and the cosmological scale factor. Other astrophysical applications involve the entropy growth of the early Universe, an ability to rule out alternatives to inflation, to pinpoint the energy scale at which inflation took place and to provide clues about the symmetries underlying new physics at the highest energies. Several alternative HFRGW detectors are described and the proposed Li-Baker HFRGW detector, which is theoretically sensitive to GW amplitudes, A, as small as 10-32, is discussed in detail. It is recommended that plans and specifications for the Li-Baker HFRGW detector be prepared in order to expedite its fabrication.

How Can Gw/graviton Generation Has Semi Classical Features, and What the Implications Are for Cosmological re Acceleration of the Universe, and Initial Relic Entropy Generation in Term of the Importance of Dimensions.

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 17 pages. For possible inclusion as entry into the ICAAM AIP conference proceedings, as a study/presentation for Dr. Christian Corda's GW work shop.

We argue in this document that initial vacuum state values possibly responsible for GW generation in relic conditions in the initial onset of inflation may have a temporary un squeezed, possibly even coherent initial value, which would permit in certain models classical coherent initial gravitational wave states. Secondly, if gravitational waves have semi classical features in their genesis, then the problem of how q(Z) under goes through an inflection point and how the rate of acceleration increases a billion years ago needs to be re examined. Additional dimensions are not the problem. Determining if GW/Gravitions are semi classical in their initial formulation at the source of the big bang, is. Also, semi classical and quantum entropy generating processes are compared, with the role of looking for over lap between them.

Dark Particles (Black Holes with the Reduced Planck Mass) Answers Dark Energy

Authors: John L. Haller Jr.
Comments: 9 pages

This paper argues a hypothetical "dark" particle (a black hole with the reduced Planck mass) gives a simple explanation to the open question of dark energy and has a relic density of only 17% more than the commonly accepted value. By considering an additional near horizon boundary of the black hole, set by its quantum length, the black hole can obtain an arbitrary temperature. Black body radiation is still present and fits as the source of the Universe's missing energy. Support for this hypothesis is offered by showing a stationary solution to the black hole's length scale is the same if derived from a quantum analysis in continuous time, a quantum analysis in discrete time, or a general relativistic analysis.

Cosmic de Celebration Parameter Q(Z) Dependence Upon Gravitons? Implications for the DM Rocket/ram Jet Model

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 15 pages. Source of information for presentations on DM , and idea of DM rocket / ram jet as will in part be presented in both SPESIF, February 2010, and AIBEP, November 2009. Discussion of material of this document not involved with DM rocket are part of general back ground material for presentation by the author in ICAAM Crete, September 2009 at gravitational physics sub session run by Dr. Corda..AIBEP talk will have DM rocket/ ram jet, but also include laser physics

In the 12th Marcel Grossmann Meeting, July 9th, 2009, the author raised the issue of whether early graviton production could affect non-Gaussian contributions to DM density profiles. Another issue to consider, is if or not gravitons with mass affect DM profiles, but could also impact the cosmic acceleration of the universe, leading to an increase of acceleration one billion years ago, in a manner usually attributed to DE. Following Marcio E. S. Alves, Oswaldo D. Miranda, Jose C. N. de Araujo, 2009 in an article brought to the attention to the author by Christian Corda, the author, using his modification of Friedman equations, incorporating some brane models to allow for additional dimensions found that there is, for low graviton mass of the order of mgraviton ~ 10-65 grams similar behavior as noted by Alves, et al. 2009. If of mgraviton ~ 10-65 also is reconcilable as to KK dark matter models, which is under investigation, the new modeling super structure could have significant impact upon the DM rocket / ram jet proposal the author, Beckwith, brought up in the AIBEP meeting in Scottsville, Arizona. The author will high light what KK style gravitons, with a slightly different mass profile could mean in terms of his DM rocket proposal brought up in both Christ Church, Dark 2009, and in different form in SPESIF, 2009. I.e. value of up to 5 TeV , as opposed to 400 GeV for DM, which may mean more convertible power for a suitably designed platform.

How Can One Look at if GW Generation Has Semi Classical Features, and What This Implies About Compression of Vacuum Wave States, and Coherence/de Coherence? Also, What About High Versus Low Frequencies as to Relic GW?

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 12 pages. 3 pages of references put in as bibliography as to important GW papers.

We argue in this document that initial vacuum state values possibly responsible for GW generation in relic conditions in the initial onset of inflation may have a temporary un squeezed , possibly even coherent initial value, which would permit in certain models classical coherent initial gravitational wave states. The coherent states would be amendable to nucleation by classical/ highly non linear processes which would be almost immediately eliminated by compression and squeezing. Even though that the general background of incoherency for relic GW is a given. Furthermore, several arguments pro and con as to if or not initial relic GW should be high frequency will be presented, with the reason given why earlier string models did NOT favor low relic GW from the big bang.

The invariance of physical law between a prior to a present universe is brought up, as a continuation of analyzing entropy in today's universe, and the relationship of entropy to information content in a prior universe. If or not there is enough information to preserve the amount of physical law also may play a role as to if or not additional dimensions for cosmological dynamics is necessary.

Entropy Growth in the Early Universe, and the Search for Determining if Gravity is Classical or Quantum, Part I (Confirmation of Initial Big Bang Conditions?)

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: 23 pages.

We begin our inquiry by asking two questions. First, is there an approximate match up between the total entropy of the universe, and the sum total of entropy between super massive black holes at the center of spiral galaxies? Note that Sean Carroll in 2005 presented a black hole entropy value which could have a super massive black hole in the center of a galaxy having more than 1089 non dimensionalized units of entropy in value. This value would be greater than what H. J. de Vega calculated as the entropy value of the entire universe. And there are conceivably up to a million spiral galaxies. Secondly, we accept what De Vega presented about entropy, i.e. its approximate present day value was nearly reached during the end of the re heating of the universe, right after the big bang. If so, the second question is what initiated entropy growth in the beginning ? This paper shows how increased entropy values from an initially low big bang level can be measured experimentally by counting relic gravitons. Furthermore the physical mechanism of this entropy increase is explained via analogies with early-universe phase transitions. The role of Jack Ng's revised infinite quantum statistics in the physics of gravitational wave detection is acknowledged. Ng's infinite quantum statistics can be used to show that gravitons ΔS ≈ ΔN is a starting point to the increasing net universe cosmological entropy. Finally, in a nod to similarities with ZPE analysis, it is important to note that the resulting/\] ΔS ≈ ΔNgravitons ≠ 1089, that in fact it is much lower, allowing for evaluating initial graviton production as an emergent field phenomena, which may be similar to how ZPE states can be used to extract energy from a vacuum if entropy is not maximized.. Finally, the implications of if or not gravitons have mass will be reviewed as far as how graviton mass issues, and the nature of gravitational waves, may affect experimental measurements of relic big bang conditions. The relationship of some models of KK gravitons as having similar evolution equations to GW in GR models will be commented upon, with suggestions as to how that ties in DM values.

Equivalence Between the Empty Microspace and the Cosmological Space

Authors: R.A.Isasi
Comments: 24 Pages. In this v.5, I have corrected, some typing and orthographic errors

In this article, we discuss the origin and nature oe the total photons number N of the CMB radiation, in relation with the critical baryon number Nb and the energy of the empty space. The CMB radiation is considered as a huge amplification of the phenomena at atomic scale originated in the past, as the background microwaves are the support of all the prints originated by posterior pertubations. This allows us to establish a connection between the microphysics and macrophysics by means of their redution to a problem of scale and dimensional analysis. Taking into account the mean wavelength of the CMB radiation, we can parametrize the total number of photons as an invariant number through the succesive evolutive phases. The equivalence between the electrical potential and the gravitational potential is establishes by the relativistic implications which are found in Millikan´s experiment. This generalization, makes it possible to extend the formula of Saha, used specifically in the inverse thermal ionization, and extend it to the gravitational collapse when the Universe had the size of 1.032 Mps. Furthermore, this scale unit,marks as much as the initial conditions , as the present one for the Hubble Law.

Conformal Kepler Solar System, Pioneer and 55 Cancri

Authors: Frank Dodd Tony Smith Jr
Comments: 30 Pages.

Irving Ezra Segal's Gravity based on the Conformal Group Spin(2,4) = SU(2,2) not only allows calculation of the present value of the ratio Dark Energy : Dark Matter : Ordinary Matter = 0.75 : 0.21 : 0.04 ( see vixra 0907.0007 and 0907.0006 ) but also explains the Pioneer Anomaly and is consistent with an extension of Kepler's Polyhedral Model of Planetary Orbit Radii to include Uranus and Neptune by using the Cuboctahedron and the Rhombic Dodecahedron for the outer region where the Conformal Pioneer Gravitational Acceleration becomes effective. The Conformally Extended Kepler Polyhedral Model not only describes Our Solar System of the Sun and its Planets, but, as Poveda and Lara have shown, it also describes the only other presently known Star and Planets system with at least 5 planets, the system of 55 Cancri. Since both of the only two presently known Star-Planet systems with at least 5 planets obey the Conformally Extended Kepler Polyhedral Model, it seems likely that the model is not a mere numerological coincidence, but is in fact based on realistic physics related to Segal's Conformal Gravity.

Entropy Growth in the Early Universe, and the Search for Determining if Gravity is Classical or Quantum , Part III (Is Gravity a Classical or Quantum Phenomenon at Its Genesis 13.7 Billion Years Ago?)

Authors: Andrew Beckwith
Comments: part III of a series of inter related articles in the process of finalization which discuss entropy in terms of the search for if or not gravity is a classical or quantum emergent "field" in relic conditions. 33 pages

In the 12th Marcel Grossmann Meeting, July 9th, 2009, the author raised the issue of whether early graviton production could affect non-Gaussian contributions to DM density profiles. Non gaussianity of evolving cosmological states is akin to asking if there is a way to get quantum contributions due to squeezed initial vacuum states which act highly non classscially. If particle counting algorithms in graviton production is important as for entropy, and if entropy perturbations affects the density profile of dark matter clumping prifiles, then there is room to ask to what degree initial perturbations affecting structure formation are due to classical/ non linear processes, or more quantum theoretic states. If squeezing of the initial vacuum states is essential in the relic conditions, then quantization is unavoidable. If squeezing is not essential, then coherent initial vacuum states may contribute in semi classical ways to GW production . The end result of this stated inquiry may be answering if or not gravity in the onset of inflation is a quantized field. Or if a highly non linear set of complex initial conditions for gravity can be stated using purely classical models, as T'Hooft, Corda, and others believe. Note, also that Bojowald as of 2008 has left the degree of squeezing of initial vacuum states in the region of space as an open problem. In Bojowald's model of a cosmological bounce, the degree of squeezing is a measure of what strength the "bounce" from an initial configuration of the universe takes, and how strongly quantum effects contribute to the evolution of the LQG cosmos, after inflation commences. Similar questions are being raised as to the necessity of squeezing of initial vacuum states and if or not coherency of initial states is initially largely achievable, before the rapid expansion of the universe commences. Finally, and not least is a series of questions as to what conditions which would either require high or low frequencies as to relic signals from the big bang. As it is, large spatial dimensions which could induce far lower initial frequencies for relic signals are popular in many string theory models. The author views this assumption as of debatable validity, as well as the assumption made by Arkani Hamid that largely does away with coherency of initial vacuum states and specifies highly quantum , low frequency generation of relic GW.

Discovery of a New Dimming Effect Specific to Supernovae and Gamma-Ray Bursts

Authors: Thomas B. Andrews
Comments: 42 pages

Because type Ia supernovae (SNs) are anomalously dimmed with respect to the at (qo = 0.5) Friedman Expanding Universe model, I was surprised to find that the brightest cluster galaxies (BCGs) are not anomalously dimmed. Based on the absence of anomalous dimming in BCGs, the following conclusions were reached:

  • ⋅ Since the light from the SNs and BCGs traverses the same space, the current hypothesis of an accelerated expansion of the universe to explain the anomalous dimming of SNs is disproved.
  • ⋅ The cause of the anomalous dimming must be specific to the SNs.
The first conclusion is important since current research in dark energy and the cosmological constant was initiated based on the accelerated expansion hypothesis. The disproof of this hypothesis, therefore, casts serious doubts on the existence of dark energy and the cosmological constant. The second conclusion indicates that the occurrence of anomalous dimming depends on a basic difference between the SNs and BCGs. The only difference besides the obvious - that SNs are exploding stars and the BCGs are galaxies - is that the light curves of the SNs are limited in duration. Due on this difference, I discovered that SNs light curves are broadened at the observer by a new Hubble redshift effect. Since the total energy of the light curve is then spread over a longer time period, the apparent luminosity is reduced at the observer, causing the observed anomalous dimming of SNs. I also show that BCGs are not anomalously dimmed because their absolute luminosity is approximately constant over the time required for the light to reach the observer. The above conclusions also apply to Gamma Ray Bursts (GRBs) since gamma-ray "light" curves are limited in duration. Finally, the light curve broadening effect can be used to determine if the universe is expanding or static. In the expanding universe model, a light curve broadening effect is predicted due to time-dilation for the SNs, GRBs and BCGs. Consequently, if the universe is expanding, two light curve broadening effects should occur for the SNs and GRBs. However, if the universe is static, only one light curve broadening effect will occur for the SNs and GRBs. Fortunately, Golhaber has measured the width's of SNs light curves and conclusively showed that only one light curve broadening effect occurs. Consequently, the expanding universe model is logically falsified.

The Spiral Structure of NGC 3198.

Authors: Bruce Rout
Comments: 9 Pages. Explanation of flat velocity rotation curve and distance measure to NGC 3198

Observations of NGC 3198 show a discrepancy between the rotational velocity and its apparent geometry which defies the predicted behaviour of Keplerian Dynamics. This paper reconciles this anomaly by considering the relativistic effect of gravity on galactic spiral arms over great distances in a rotating reference frame. Keplerian dynamics hold true in this analysis by considering the rotational behaviour of a cloud of stars as more accurate than that of a central mass with satellites at discrete orbits. A re-examination from first principles describes the spiral arms of NGC 3198 as a linear star cloud of near-uniform density which appears, from our local reference frame, as a non-uniform disc due to its rotation. The apparent non-uniform radial distribution of stars is described by delayed gravitational interactions over great distances in an accelerating reference frame whereby a uniform distribution of stars appears to occupy an increasing circumference. The theory is substantiated by deriving the shape of a linear star cloud of the dimensions and rotational velocity of NGC 3198 as it would appear from Earth, using Einstein's equations and Keplerian dynamics. Since the derived shape is congruent with the observed shape of NGC 3198, the exact shape and size of the resulting spiral can be used to determine its distance from Earth with great accuracy using simple trigonometry.

A Short Article On A Newly Proposed Model Of Cosmology

Authors: Dan Visser, Chris Forbes, Keith Lees
Comments: 2 pages

In this paper a new model of cosmology is proposed in an informal manner, with most results merely stated and not derived, in anticipation of a fuller, more mathematical paper to be published at a later date. A historical overview of its development is given and its main propositions and results are explained and evaluated.
