Is Mass Constant in a Gravitational Field?

Authors: Zhan Likui
Comments: 14 pages, 4 figures, 3586 words, In English

In a black hole, no force can prevent matter from collapsing into a point, a gravitational singularity. The problem of the singularity is always a difficult one. We attempt to discussion gravitation from another angle in this work. Based on experimental analysis and theoretical verification, a hypothesis regarding mass in gravitational fields is presented. It can avoid the problem of singularity, and the meaning of gravitation is simple to determine.

Evolutionary Sequence of Spacetime/intrinsic Spacetime and Associated Sequence of Geometry in a Metric Force Field. Part II.

Authors: Akindele J. Adekugbe
Comments: 20 pages. Submitted to Progress in Physics

Graphical analysis of the geometry of a curved 'three-dimensional' absolute intrinsic metric space, (an absolute intrinsic Riemannian metric space) φM3, which is curved onto the absolute time/absolute intrinsic time 'dimensions' (along the vertical), as a curved hyper-surface, and projects a flat three-dimensional proper intrinsic metric space φE'3 underlying its outward manifestation namely, the flat proper physical Euclidean 3-space φE'3, both as flat hyper-surfaces along the horizontal, isolated in part one of this paper, is done. Two absolute intrinsic tensor equations, one of which is of the divergenceless form of Einstein free-space field equations and the other which is a tensorial statement of local Euclidean invariance on φM3, are derived. Simultaneous (algebraic) solution of the equations yields the absolute intrinsic metric tensor and absolute intrinsic Ricci tensor of absolute intrinsic Riemann geometry on the curved absolute intrinsic metric space φM3, in terms of an isolated absolute intrinsic curvature parameter. Relations for absolute intrinsic coordinate projections into the underlying flat proper intrinsic space are derived. A superposition procedure that yields resultant absolute intrinsic metric tensor and resultant absolute intrinsic Ricci tensor, as well as resultant absolute intrinsic coordinate projection relations when two or a larger number of absolute intrinsic Riemannian metric spaces co-exist, are developed. Finally the fact that a curved 'three-dimensional' absolute intrinsic metric space φM3 is perfectly isotropic (that is, all directions are perfectly the same) and is consequently contracted to a 'onedimensional' absolute intrinsic metric space denoted by φρ, which is curved onto the absolute time/absolute intrinsic time 'dimensions' along the vertical and that the underlying projective three-dimensional flat proper intrinsic metric space φE'3 is perfectly isotropic and is consequently contracted to a straight line one-dimensional isotropic proper intrinsic metric space φρ' along the horizontal, with respect to observers in the physical proper Euclidean 3-space φE'3 that overlies φρ', are deduced.

Evolutionary Sequence of Spacetime/intrinsic Spacetime and Associated Sequence of Geometries in a Metric Force Field. Part I.

Authors: Akindele J. Adekugbe
Comments: 11 pages. Submitted to Progress in Physics

Having isolated a four-world picture in which four symmetrical universes in different spacetime domains coexist and in which an isolated two-dimensional intrinsic spacetime underlies the four-dimensional spacetime in each universe, and having shown that the special theory of relativity rests on a four-world background elsewhere, we review the geometry of spacetime/intrinsic spacetime in a long-range metric force field within the four-world picture in the four parts of this paper. We show within an elaborate programme that the four-dimensional metric spacetime and its underlying two-dimensional intrinsic metric spacetime undergo two stages of evolution in the sequence of absolute spacetime/absolute intrinsic spacetime → proper spacetime/proper intrinsic spacetime → relativistic spacetime/relativistic intrinsic spacetime in all finite neighborhood of a long-range metric force field and that these are supported by a sequence of spacetime /intrinic spacetime geometries. The programme takes off in this first paper by isolating two classes of three-dimensional Riemannian metric space namely, the conventional three-dimensional Riemannian metric space and a new 'three-dimensional' absolute intrinsic Riemannian metric space.

Can the Universe be Represented by a Superposition of Spacetime Manifolds?

Authors: Raymond Jensen
Comments: 15 pages, To appear in 2011 SPESIF Proceedings.

In this article it is argued, that the universe cannot be modeled as a space-time manifold. A theorem of geometry provides that null geodesics on a space-time manifold which begin at the same point with the same initial tangent vector are unique. But in reality, light originating from a single point with a given initial direction does not travel along a unique null geodesic path when a massive object attracts it, in particular when the massive object is in an indefinite location. Therefore, the universe cannot be described as a space-time manifold. It is then argued that the universe is a superposition of space-time manifolds, where the manifolds form a Hilbert space over the complex numbers.

The Origin of Space and Time

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 12 Pages. adding new section

Fundamentally, the dimensionality of spacetime is a matter of energy conservation: three dimensions are sufficient to establish an entropic domain in which the basic thermodynamic requirements necessary to conserve the energy of free forms of electromagnetic energy (light, EM radiation, etc.) are present; likewise, four dimensions are necessary to meet the conservation requirements of bound forms of electromagnetic energy (mass/matter).

On the Accelerating Universal Expansion

Authors: R. Wayte
Comments: 25 pages

Repulsive gravity at large distances has been included in the universal solution of Einstein's equations by introducing a cosmological constant, which excludes the dark energy interpretation. For an external-coordinate-observer cosmological model, the big-bang singularity has been replaced by a granular primeval particle, and expansion is controlled by the velocity of light. Then problems inherent in the standard model do not arise, and no inflation phase is necessary. It is advantageous to truncate the graviton field at a maximum radius, which is related to proton dimensions through the ratio (e2/Gm2). This governs the onset of universal repulsion at around 7Gyr, in rough agreement with observations of Type Ia supernovae.

The Intrinsic Motions of Matter

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 10 pages

Intrinsic motions are the expression of conservation law and cosmic order in matter. The Universe, and everything in it, is always in some type of motion, whether absolute, relative, intrinsic, entropic, atomic, biological, or evolutionary.

The Black Hole Catastrophe: A Reply to J. J. Sharples

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 29 pages

A recent Letter to the Editor (Sharples J. J., Coordinate transformations and metric extension: a rebuttal to the relativistic claims of Stephen J. Crothers, Progress in Physics, v.1, 2010) has analysed a number of my publications in Progress in Physics. There are serious problems with this treatment which should be brought to the attention of the Journal's readership. Dr. Sharples has committed errors in both mathematics and physics. For instance, his notion that r = 0 in the so-called "Schwarzschild solution" marks the point at the centre of the related manifold is false, as is his related claim that Schwarzschild's actual solution describes a manifold that is extendible. His post hoc introduction of Newtonian concepts and related mathematical expressions into Schwarzschild's actual solution are invalid; for instance, Newtonian two-body relations into what is alleged to be a one-body problem. Each of the objections are treated in turn and their invalidity fully demonstrated. Black hole theory is riddled with contradictions. This article provides definitive proof that black holes do not exist.

A Possible Connection Between "Inflation" and the "Big Crunch"

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 4 pages

In Alan Guth's theory of inflation, "repulsive gravity" is produced by the "negative pressure" of a supercooled "Higgs inflaton field" in a "false vacuum". This "repulsive gravity" drives the expansion of space (restoring the "true vacuum") during the brief period of inflation which initiates the Universe. There is a curious similarity between this conception of the mechanics of inflation and the notion of a "rebound" at the end of a cosmic life cycle or "Big Crunch" in a closed, cyclic Universe. This "rebound" is the explosion of a cosmic-sized black hole which has exhausted all external supplies of space, and so can no longer create the gravitational field and time dimension necessary to contain its energy content, which exists largely or wholly in the form of gravitationally bound light (due to proton decay within the black hole's event horizon). (See: "Entropy, Gravitation, and Thermodynamics".)

New Perspectives on the Classical Theory of Motion, Interaction and Geometry of Space-Time

Authors: A. R. Hadjesfandiari
Comments: 73 pages

By examining the theory of relativity, as originally proposed by Lorentz, Poincare and Einstein, a fundamental theory of general motion is developed. From this, the relationship between space-time and matter is discovered. As a result, the geometrical theory of interaction is introduced. The corresponding geometrical theory of electrodynamics resolves the origin of electromagnetic interaction, as a vortex-like field, and clarifies some of the existing ambiguities.

Champs, Vide, et Univers Miroir

Authors: L. Borissova, D. Rabounski
Comments: 263 pages, première édition en langue française, traduit de l'anglais et édité par Patrick Marquet, American Research Press, Rehoboth (NM), USA

Cet ouvrage est la traduction française du livre "Fields, Vacuum and the Mirror Universe" publié originalement en anglais en 2009, par les physiciens Larissa Borissova et Dmitri Rabounski, enrichi de nouveaux exposés. Le livre propose une analyse physico-mathématique nouvelle en élaborant une théorie des observables dans le cadre de la relativité générale. Dans leur célèbre livre de référence "Théorie des Champs", Lev Landau et Evgeny Lifshitz ont décrit de manière très complète le mouvement des particules dans les champs électromagnétique et gravitationnel. Les méthodes d'analyse covariante alors en vigueur depuis le milieu des années 30 ne prenaient pas encore en compte les concepts de quantités physiquement observables (grandeurs chronologiquement invariantes ou plus précisément grandeurs dites "chronométriques") de la relativité générale. Les auteurs ont donc voulu insister sur la nécessité d'étendre cette perspective mathématique à la théorie physique existante en l'appliquant au mouvement des particules se déplaçant dans les champs électromagnétiques et gravitationnels. De plus, l'étude des mouvements d'une particule douée de moment de rotation intrinsèque, n'a pas été entreprise dans ce contexte par Landau et Lifshitz. C'est pourquoi un exposé séparé du livre a été entièrement consacré à ce type de mouvement particulier. Les auteurs ont également ajouté un chapitre redéfinissant les éléments d'algèbre tensorielle et d'analyse dans le cadre des invariants chronométriques. L'ensemble de cet ouvrage se présente alors comme une contribution supplémentaire à la "Théorie des Champs".

Space, Time and Units-Fundamental Vision

Authors: G. V. Sharlanov
Comments: 13 pages

The change of the units between two "time-spatial domains" with different gravitational potentials is analyzed in the article, as a consequence of the nature of space and time which are mutually connected with each other in the warped spacetime of the Universe. The main topic of the article is: New definition of the postulate "invariance of the speed of light" - "uncertainty principle of the macro-world". Other topics concerned: The change of the SI base units (second and metre) and the speed of light in the Gravitational Field are analyzed while discussing of the article of Albert Einstein "On the Influence of Gravitation on the Propagation of Light". The change of the SI base units (second and metre) in Field without Gravity is analyzed, and then conclusion about Special Theory of Relativity is made. new universal hierarchical structure of the SI System is proposed, where the "second" and "metre" stay at the highest level. The main principle of the hierarchical place of any unit is also proposed. The consequences of this article directly reflect on cosmology and give explanations of a lot of problems (such as: "the accelerated expansion of the Universe", "the problem with the dark matter", etc.).

Adiabatic Expansion of the Universe

Authors: Shehrin Sayed
Comments: 4 pages

The expansion of the universe is proved to be an adiabatic process. The proposed idea shows good agreement with the observable universe and can explain some basic characteristics of the universe. It is also showed that the first kind of Friedmann model contradicts with the observable universe. The proposed idea also indicates that the size of the universe is finite.

The Higgs Boson and the Weak Force IVBs (Intermediate Vector Bosons): A General Systems Perspective (parts II, III, IV)

Authors: John A. Gowan
Comments: 10 pages

The IVBs (Intermediate Vector Bosons) are the field vectors (force carriers) of the weak force. The IVBs reconstitute the very dense, early metric of spacetime (during the "Big Bang"), and their mass is the probable consequence of the binding energy necessary to condense, compact, and/or convolute the spacetime metric. Originally, the "W" IVBs were indistinguishable from the early dense metric of which they were a part - the energy level of electroweak unification. The "Electroweak Era" existed from 10(-12) to 10(-35) seconds after the Big Bang, when collision energy exceeded 100 GEV and the temperature exceeded 10(15) Kelvins. During this time (a tiny fraction of a second in human terms) the whole of spacetime - the whole Cosmos - was in effect a single huge "W" IVB within which all the transitions of "identity" within the lepton family of particles (including the heavy leptons), and all the transitions of "flavor" within the quark family of particles (including quarks of the heavy baryons or "hyperons"), could take place freely without restriction or energy barriers (quark and lepton families were unified among themselves, but quarks remained separate from leptons.)

Another Look at the Cosmological Model of Omnès

Authors: Henry D. May
Comments: 7 pages

The cosmological model of Roland Omnès was abandoned more than 30 years ago because it failed to show that coalescence was able to continue long enough to produce aggregations as large as the masses of galaxies. It was also determined that a universe containing antimatter galaxies is inconsistent with observations of cosmic annihilation radiation. This paper explores the implications of a simple assumption that suggests a reevaluation of those objections is needed.

Re-Identification of the Many-World Background of Special Relativity as Four-World Background. Part II.

Authors: Akindele O. J. Adekugbe
Comments: 15 pages. Paper to appear in Progress in Physics vol.1, 2011, pp. 25-39.

The re-identification of the many-world background of the special theory of relativity (SR) as four-world background in the first part of this paper (instead of two-wold background isolated in the initial papers), is concluded in this second part. The flat two-dimensional proper intrinsic spacetime, which underlies the flat four-dimensional proper spacetime in each universe, introduced as ansatz in the initial paper, is derived formally within the four-world picture. The identical magnitudes of masses, identical sizes and identical shapes of the four members of every quartet of symmetry-partner particles or objects in the four universes are shown. The immutability of Lorentz invariance on flat spacetime of SR in each of the four universes is shown to arise as a consequence of the perfect symmetry of relative motion at all times among the four members of every quartet of symmetry-partner particles and objects in the four universes. The The perfect symmetry of relative motions at all times, coupled with the identical magnitudes of masses, identical sizes and identical shapes, of the members of every quartet of symmetry-partner particles and objects in the four universes, guarantee perfect symmetry of state among the universes.

Re-Identification of the Many-World Background of Special Relativity as Four-World Background. Part I.

Authors: Akindele O. J. Adekugbe
Comments: 22 pages. Paper to appear in Progress in Physics, vol.1, 2011, pp. 3-24.

The pair of co-existing symmetrical universes, referred to as our (or positive) universe and negative universe, isolated and shown to constitute a two-world background for the special theory of relativity (SR) in previous papers, encompasses another pair of symmetrical universes, referred to as positive time-universe and negative time-universe. The Euclidean 3-spaces (in the context of SR) of the positive time-universe and the negative time-universe constitute the time dimensions of our (or positive) universe and the negative universe respectively, relative to observers in the Euclidean 3-spaces of our universe and the negative universe and the Euclidean 3-spaces of or our universe and the negative universe constitute the time dimensions of the positive time-universe and the negative time-universe respectively, relative to observers in the Euclidean 3-spaces of the positive time-universe and the negative time-universe. Thus time is a secondary concept derived from the concept of space according to this paper. The one-dimensional particle or object in time dimension to every three-dimensional particle or object in 3-space in our universe is a three-dimensional particle or object in 3-space in the positive time-universe. Perfect symmetry of natural laws is established among the resulting four universes and two outstanding issues about the new spacetime/intrinsic spacetime geometrical representation of Lorentz transformation/intrinsic Lorentz transformation in the two-world picture, developed in the previous papers, are resolved within the larger four-world picture in this first part of this paper.

A New Face of the Multiverse Hypothesis: Bosonic-Phononic Inflaton Quantum Universes

Authors: Lukasz Glinka
Comments: 12 pages, published in Prespacetime Journal 1(9), pp. 1395-1402 (November 2010)

The boson-phonon duality due to inflaton energy is presented in the context of quantum universes discussed recently by the author. The duality leads to bonons, i.e. the bosonic-phononic quantum universes. This state of things manifestly corresponds to the Lewis-Kripke modal realism, and physical presence of Multiverse in Nature.

Equivalent Photon Model of Matter

Authors: Juan Carlos Alcerro Mena
Comments: 11 pages

An unpublished observation made in the theory of relativity, reveals a reality of higher spatial dimensions which implies a new model of matter, called equivalent photon model of matter, which displays every particle with rest mass greater than zero, as a photon in a fourdimensional space (without referring to the space-time). This gives an alternative derivation of quantum physics, also can observe the reality behind special relativity, arise physical predictions that not are covered by the existing physical theory and spontaneously arises the concept of fivedimensional space-time, with its fourth spatial axis of compact type.

Zero Kelvin Big Bang, an Alternative Paradigm: III. The Big Bang

Authors: Royce Haynes
Comments: 11 pages, Paper 3 in series of 3, "Zero Kelvin Big Bang, an Alternative Paradigm", submitted to Apeiron, November 2, 2010.

In the first paper in this series, we described a "cosmic fabric" which served as the birthplace of our universe: spin-oriented hydrogen atoms at zero Kelvin in a matrix perhaps infinite and (almost) eternal. In the second paper we described how a portion of the cosmic fabric ultimately condensed into a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC), the "primeval atom". In this third paper we describe the Big Bang itself, an implosion-explosion event involving nuclear fusion of hydrogen into the primordial mix of elements. Using the ZKBB model, one can calculate the approximate temperature of the Big Bang as 5.7 billion K. The explosion fragmented the remaining BEC, propelling billions of fragments of "cosmic shrapnel" out from the locus of the Big Bang, which ultimately evolved into the structures we see in our present universe.

In the first paper in this series, we described the logic suggesting a "cosmic fabric", which served as the birthplace of our universe: a sparse distribution of spin-oriented hydrogen atoms at zero Kelvin, perhaps infinite and (almost) eternal. This second paper describes how a portion of this cosmic fabric could have condensed into a Bose-Einstein condensate (BEC). This cold ball of highly concentrated matter may be the "primeval atom", proposed by Georges Lemaître in 1931, as the starting point for our universe.

Zero Kelvin Big Bang, an Alternative Paradigm: I. Logic and the Cosmic Fabric

Authors: Royce Haynes
Comments: 13 pages, Paper 1 in series of 3, "Zero Kelvin Big Bang, an Alternative Paradigm", submitted to Apeiron, November 2, 2010.

This is the first in a series of papers describing an alternative paradigm for the history of the universe. The Zero Kelvin Big Bang (ZKBB) theory is compared to the prevailing paradigm of the Standard Big Bang (SBB), and challenges the notion that the universe is "all there is". Logic suggests that the Big Bang was not a creation event, but that the universe did have a beginning: a "cosmic fabric" of pre-existing matter, in pre-existing space. Instead, the ZKBB was a transitional event between that "beginning" and our present universe. Extrapolating entropy back in time (as SBB does for matter and energy) and applying simple logic suggests a "cosmic fabric" consisting of the simplest, stable particles of matter, at the lowest energy state possible: singlet state, spin-oriented atomic hydrogen at zero Kelvin, at a density of, at most, only a few atoms per cubic meter of space, infinite and (almost) eternal. Papers II and III in this series describe formation of an atomic hydrogen Bose-Einstein condensate as Lemaître's primeval atom, followed by an implosion-explosion Big Bang.
