The Discrepancy in Redshift Between Associated Galaxies and Quasars

Authors: Michael J Savins
Comments: 8 pages

There is considerable evidence to suggest that many apparent quasar galaxy pairs, actually are pairs despite their difference in red shift. Therefore, the light leaving the quasar must be gravitationally red shifted at source. However, one might expect the quasar to be blue shifted relative to the galaxy in view of the truly gigantic amount of energy being released ejecting huge volumes of material at relativistic speed. The problem then is how to account for the difference, what mechanism is capable of turning a blue shift into a considerable red shift other than cosmological expansion? The answer is time or more precisely the rate of flow of time. A quasar alters the rate of flow of time in its locality by the following Rt = E/m + -ma. The quasar by attempting to reverse time in its vicinity slows down the universal rate of flow of time in its locality. This slow down of the rate of flow of time or time dilation results in light leaving the quasar being far red shifted at source. This rules out a black hole as being a candidate for the quasar as black holes and galaxies share the same time frame, this means it has to be a white hole which is time reversed in comparison to the rest of the universe

The General Theory of Relativity, Metric Theory of Relativity and Covariant Theory of Gravitation. Axiomatization and Critical Analysis

Authors: Sergey G. Fedosin
Comments: 23 Pages. Published in: International Journal of Theoretical and Applied Physics (IJTAP), ISSN: 2250-0634, Vol.4, No. I (2014), pp. 9-26.

The axiomatization of general theory of relativity (GR) is done. The axioms of GR are compared with the axioms of the metric theory of relativity and the covariant theory of gravitation. The need to use the covariant form of the total derivative with respect to the proper time of the invariant quantities, the 4-vectors and tensors is indicated. The definition of the 4-vector of force density in Riemannian spacetime is deduced.

New Theory of Light and Ether

Authors: Udrea Sergiu
Comments: 7 pages.

Light as a wave needs a medium of propagation. The ether is the medium through which propagate light waves. Light shows a surprising number of properties that were difficult to explain relatively to the ether, but which must appear as naturals, a normal result of the properties of ether. The ether must support the phenomena related to light, particles and their interactions.

Quantum Field Theory with Electric-Magnetic Duality and Spin-Mass Duality But Without Grand Unification and Supersymmetry

Authors: Rainer W. Kühne
Comments: 25 pages.

I present a generalization of quantum electrodynamics which includes Dirac magnetic monopoles and the Salam magnetic photon. This quantum electromagnetodynamics has many attractive features. (1) It explains the quantization of electric charge. (2) It describes symmetrized Maxwell equations. (3) It is manifestly covariant. (4) It describes local four-potentials. (5) It avoids the unphysical Dirac string. (6) It predicts a second kind of electromagnetic radiation which can be verified by a tabletop experiment. An effect of this radiation may have been observed by August Kundt in 1885. Furthermore I discuss a generalization of General Relativity which includes Cartan's torsion. I discuss the mathematical definition, concrete description, and physical meaning of Cartan's torsion. I argue that the electric-magnetic duality of quantum electromagnetodynamics is analogous to the spin-mass duality of Einstein-Cartan theory. A quantum version of this theory requires that the torsion tensor corresponds to a spin-3 boson called tordion which is shown to have a rest mass close to the Planck mass. Moreover I present an empirically satisfied fundamental equation of unified field theory which includes the fundamental constants of electromagnetism and gravity. I conclude with the remark that the concepts presented here require neither Grand Unification nor supersymmetry.

Pioneer Anomaly – A Confirmation of Relativity

Authors: Michael J Savins
Comments: 3 pages.

The Pioneer anomaly is due to time dilation that is caused by the gravity of the Solar System. As pioneer leaves the solar System the rate of flow of time increases causing a doppler blue shift relative to our perspective. This blue shift reduces the expected red shift so the red shift is not as far red shifted as expected. The craft is where it is supposed to be, it just appears to be closer to us than it is.

The Phoenix Theory of the Universe

Authors: Michael J Savins
Comments: 20 pages.

Much knowledge has been discovered about the Universe and is readily available. The Phoenix Theory attempts to re-interpret it in a simple and intuitive manner that better fits what we see. The Phoenix theory builds upon Einstein's theories of Relativity and General Relativity. His simple equation E = mc2 explains a lot more about the universe than it has been credited with. This theory fills in many of the missing details and attempts to complete the picture. Everything in the universe is made of energy. This theory attempts to explain the relationship between mass, energy and time in a cyclic universe, matter, antimatter ad infinitum.

ZPE Zero Point Energy Examples Around Black Holes.

Authors: Leo Vuyk
Comments: 11 pages.

FUNCTION FOLLOWS FORM in Quantum FFF THEORY. The FORM and MICROSTRUCTURE of elementary particles, is supposed to be the origin of FUNCTIONAL differences between Higgs- Graviton- Photon- and Fermion particles. As a consequence, a NEW splitting, accelerating and pairing MASSLESS BLACK HOLE, able to convert vacuum energy (ZPE) into real energy by entropy decrease, seems to be able to explain quick Galaxy- and Star formation, down to Sunspots, Comets and even Ball Lightning.

Three Fundamental Masses Derived by Dimensional Analysis

Authors: Dimitar Valev
Comments: 6 pages, minor changes, paper is published in Am. J. Space Sci., 2013, Vol. 1, Issue 2, pp. 145-149

Three new mass dimension quantities have been derived by dimensional analysis, in addition to the famous Planck mass mp ~ 10^(-8) kg. These masses have been derived by means of fundamental constants – the speed of light (c), the gravitational constant (G), the Plank constant (h_bar) and the Hubble constant (H). The enormous mass m1 ~ 10^53 kg practically coincides with the Hoyle-Carvalho formula for the mass of the observable universe. The extremely small mass m2 ~ 10^(-33) eV has been identified with the minimum quantum of energy, which seems close to the graviton mass. It is noteworthy that the Planck mass appears geometric mean of the masses m1 and m2. The mass m3 ~ 10^7 GeV could not be unambiguously identified at present time. Besides, the order of magnitude of the total density of the universe has been estimated by this approach.

One-Way Speed of Light Relative to a Moving Observer

Authors: Stephan J. G. Gift
Comments: 8 pages.

The one-way speed of light relative to a moving observer is determined using the range measurement equation of the Global Positioning System. This equation has been rigorously tested and verified in the Earth-Centred Inertial frame where light signals propagate in straight lines at constant speed c. The result is a simple demonstration of light speed anisotropy that is consistent with light speed anisotropy detected in other experiments and inconsistent with the principle of light speed constancy. This light speed anisotropy was not observed before because there has been no direct one-way measurement of light speed relative to a moving observer.

Reduced Total Energy Requirements For The Original Alcubierre and Natario Warp Drive Spacetimes-The Role Of Warp Factors.

Authors: Fernando Loup
Comments: 21 pages.

Warp Drives are solutions of the Einstein Field Equations that allows Superluminal Travel within the framework of General Relativity. There are at the present moment two known solutions: The Alcubierre Warp Drive discovered in 1994 and the Natario Warp Drive discovered in 2001. However as stated by both Alcubierre and Natario themselves the Warp Drive violates all the known energy conditions because the stress energy momentum tensor(the right side of the Einstein Field Equations) for the Einstein tensor G00 is negative implying in a negative energy density. While from a classical point of view the negative energy is forbidden the quantum theory allows the existence of very small amounts of it being the Casimir effect a good example as stated by Alcubierre himself. But the stress energy momentum tensor of both Alcubierre and Natario Warp Drives have the speed of the ship raised to the square inside its mathematical structure which means to say that as fast the ship goes by then more and more amounts of negative energy are needed in order to maintain the Warp Drive. Since the total energy requirements to maintain the Warp Drive are enormous and since quantum theory only allows small amounts of it,many authors regarded the Warp Drive as unphysical and impossible to be achieved. We compute the negative energy density requirements for a Warp Bubble with a radius of 100 meters(large enough to contain a ship) moving with a speed of 200 times light speed(fast enough to reach stars at 20 light-years away in months not in years)and we verify that the negative energy density requirements are of about 1028 times the positive energy density of Earth!!!(We multiply the mass of Earth by c2 and divide by Earth volume for a radius of 6300km). However both Alcubierre and Natario Warp Drives as members of the same family of the Einstein Field Equations requires the so-called Shape Functions in order to be mathematically defined. We present in this work two new Shape Functions one for the Alcubierre and another for the NatarioWarp Drive Spacetimes that allows arbitrary Superluminal speeds while keeping the negative energy density at "low" and "affordable" levels.We do not violate any known law of quantum physics and we maintain the original geometries of both Alcubierre and Natario Warp Drive Spacetimes.

On the Expansion of the Universe

Authors: Jorge de Sousa e Meneses
Comments: 6 pages

It is accepted from the beginning that nothing can escape from the Universe and a distance is found at which the expansion and compression of the space around a mass are in equilibrium. With this in mind the density of the space is calculated. The value obtained matches the value obtained experimentally by measuring cosmologic redshifts. Applying this concept to the mass of the Universe a second equation is found. This equation, together with the first one, allows the age of the Universe to be calculated and a value is found which is between the normally accepted limits. The same equations allow the deduction of the density equation calculated by Milne and the relativistic equation deduced by Friedmann. Finally, with these equations, the relation between the mass of the Universe, the speed of light and the universal constant of gravitation is found. This relation indicates possibly new areas of investigation.

Addressing Strength of GW Radiation Affected by Additional Dimensions

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 15 pages, 3 tables, two figures.; Has arguments in simplified form as to what will be brought up for presentation by the author in rencontres de Moriond, in a GW symposium

We examine whether gravitational waves would be generated during the initial phase, δ0 of the universe when triggered by changes in space-time geometry; i.e. We hope to find traces of the breakdown of the Entropy/QM space-time regime during δ0. In particular, we look at if higher dimensions affect the relative strength of ΩGW , and comment as to how this magnitude may affect opportunities for detection of GW from relic sources. In particular, we will explain the reason why GW O of the pre big bang model is so strong, up to 10 to the - 6 power, while the ΩGW of ordinary inflation is so weak. In relic conditions.

The General Relativity Precession of Mercury.

Authors: Javier Bootello
Comments: 7 pages

The solution to the unexplained anomalous precession of the perihelion of Mercury, was the first success of GR (Einstein 1915), event which is near to reach its first centenary. We propose in this paper, to update the classic test of relativity, studying the gradual progression of one-orbit precession, not only in its perihelion, but also along a complete trajectory around the Sun. Just to underline GR results, we have confronted it with other virtual and mathematical potentials which, leading to an identical secular advance of the perihelion, offer different equations of motion with only theoretical meaning. Spacecraft Messenger will begin to orbit Mercury next March 18, and during twelve months, both will make 4.2 revolutions around the Sun. That event should afterwards allow us, to measure and draw accurately, the geometry of the whole geodesic orbit as an open free-fall path, isolated from other planets gravitational interference. This update must verify the GR issues with modern standards, throughout an accessible test to perform, with clear results, unlike a complex test, expensive and with uncertain conclusions.

Serious Anomalies in the Reported Geometry of Einstein's Gravitational Field

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 6 pages

Careful reading of the reported geometry of Einstein's gravitational field reveals that the physicists have committed fatal errors in the elementary differential geometry of a pseudo-Riemannian metric manifold. These elementary errors in mathematics invalidate much of the reported physics of Einstein's gravitational field. The consequences for astrophysical theory are significant.

Fundamental Errors in the General Theory of Relativity

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 15 pages

The notion of black holes voraciously gobbling up matter, twisting spacetime into contortions that trap light, stretching the unwary into long spaghetti-like strands as they fall inward to ultimately collide and merge with an infinitely dense point-mass singularity, has become a mantra of the astrophysical community. There are almost daily reports of scientists claiming that they have again found black holes again here and there. It is asserted that black holes range in size from micro to mini, to intermediate and on up through to supermassive behemoths and it is accepted as scientific fact that they have been detected at the centres of galaxies. Images of black holes interacting with surrounding matter are routinely included with reports of them. Some physicists even claim that black holes will be created in particle accelerators, such as the Large Hadron Collider, potentially able to swallow the Earth, if care is not taken in their production. Yet contrary to the assertions of the astronomers and astrophysicists of the black hole community, nobody has ever found a black hole, anywhere, let alone imaged one. The pictures adduced to convince are actually either artistic impressions (i.e. drawings) or photos of otherwise unidentified objects imaged by telescopes and merely asserted to be due to black holes, ad hoc.

On Line-Elements and Radii: A Correction

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 2 pages

Using a manifold with boundary various line-elements have been proposed as solutions to Einstein's gravitational field. It is from such line-elements that black holes, expansion of the Universe, and big bang cosmology have been alleged. However, it has been proved that black holes, expansion of the Universe, and big bang cosmology are not consistent with General Relativity. In a previous paper disproving the black hole theory, the writer made an error which, although minor and having no effect on the conclusion that black holes are inconsistent with General Relativity, is corrected herein for the record.

On Theoretical Contradictions and Physical Misconceptions in the General Theory of Relativity

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 6 pages

It is demonstrated herein that:-
1. The quantity 'r' appearing in the so-called "Schwarzschild solution" is neither a distance nor a geodesic radius in the manifold but is in fact the inverse square root of the Gaussian curvature of the spatial section and does not generally determine the geodesic radial distance (the proper radius) from the arbitrary point at the centre of the spherically symmetric metric manifold.
2. The Theory of Relativity forbids the existence of point-mass singularities because they imply infinite energies (or equivalently, that a material body can acquire the speed of light in vacuo);
3. Ric=Rμν =0 violates Einstein's 'Principle of Equivalence' and so does not describe Einstein's gravitational field;
4. Einstein's conceptions of the conservation and localisation of gravitational energy are invalid;
5. The concepts of black holes and their interactions are ill-conceived;
6. The FRW line-element actually implies an open, infinite Universe in both time and space, thereby invalidating the Big Bang cosmology.

Geometric and Physical Defects in the Theory of Black Holes

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 12 pages

The so-called 'Schwarzschild solution' is not Schwarzschild's solution, but a corruption of the Schwarzschild/Droste solution due to David Hilbert (December 1916), wherein m is allegedly the mass of the source of the alleged associated gravitational field and the quantity r is alleged to be able to go down to zero (although no proof of this claim has ever been advanced), so that there are two alleged 'singularities', one at r=2m and another at r=0. It is routinely alleged that r=2m is a 'coordinate' or 'removable' singularity which denotes the so-called 'Schwarzschild radius' (event horizon) and that the 'physical' singularity is at r=0. The quantity r in the usual metric has never been rightly identified by the physicists, who effectively treat it as a radial distance from the alleged source of the gravitational field at the origin of coordinates. The consequence of this is that the intrinsic geometry of the metric manifold has been violated in the procedures applied to the associated metric by which the black hole has been generated. It is easily proven that the said quantity r is in fact the inverse square root of the Gaussian curvature of a spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section of Schwarzschild spacetime and so does not denote radial distance in the Schwarzschild manifold. With the correct identification of the associated Gaussian curvature it is also easily proven that there is only one singularity associated with all Schwarzschild metrics, of which there is an infinite number that are equivalent. Thus, the standard removal of the singularity at r=2m is actually a removal of the wrong singularity, very simply demonstrated herein.

The Schwarzschild Solution and Its Implications for Gravitational Waves

Comments: 27 pages

The so-called 'Schwarzschild solution' is not Schwarzschild's solution, but a corruption, due to David Hilbert (December 1916), of the Schwarzschild/Droste solution, wherein m is allegedly the mass of the source of a gravitational field and the quantity r is alleged to be able to go down to zero (although no proof of this claim has ever been advanced), so that there are two alleged 'singularities', one at r=2m and another at r=0. It is routinely asserted that r=2m is a 'coordinate' or 'removable' singularity which denotes the so-called 'Schwarzschild radius' (event horizon) and that the 'physical' singularity is at r=0. The quantity r in the so-called 'Schwarzschild solution' has never been rightly identified by the physicists, who, although proposing many and varied concepts for what r therein denotes, effectively treat it as a radial distance from the claimed source of the gravitational field at the origin of coordinates. The consequence of this is that the intrinsic geometry of the metric manifold has been violated. It is easily proven that the said quantity r is in fact the inverse square root of the Gaussian curvature of a spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section of the 'Schwarzschild solution' and so does not in itself define any distance whatsoever in that manifold. With the correct identification of the associated Gaussian curvature it is also easily proven that there is only one singularity associated with all Schwarzschild metrics, of which there is an infinite number that are equivalent. Thus, the standard removal of the singularity at r=2m is, in a very real sense, removal of the wrong singularity, very simply demonstrated herein. This has major implications for the localisation of gravitational energy i.e. gravitational waves.

Proof that the Black Hole is Fallacious (Without Mathematics)

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 4 pages

The proponents of the black hole make much fanfare of the quantity r that appears in the so-called "Schwarzschild solution". They treat this issue with complicated mathematics and thereby confuse those not versed in the relevant mathematics. They routinely claim that this r is the radius, one way or another. However, this is false because it is not even a distance in "Schwarzschild" spacetime since it is easily proven that it strictly plays the role of the inverse square root of the Gaussian curvature of the spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section of "Schwarzschild" spacetime and so does not itself denote any distance whatsoever in "Schwarzschild" spacetime. Now one does not even need to understand the abstruse mathematics surrounding this issue to see that the black hole is invalid, making this complicated mathematical matter irrelevant, as I now show.

The Fictitious 'interior' of Schwarzschild Spacetime (And a Couple of Other Fallacies)

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 8 pages

All arguments for the black hole are based upon the same fundamental idea in that they conceive of a region that in actual fact does not exist. This fictitious region the relativists call the 'interior', i.e. the region they think is contained by their a spherically symmetric surface they call the 'event horizon'. But there is no such region. The notion comes from a failure to recognise that the centre of spherical symmetry of the problem at hand is not located where they think it is, at their r = 0. I shall discuss this now in more detail.

The Black Hole, the Big Bang – A Cosmology in Crisis (A Detailed Analysis)

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 38 Pages.

It is often claimed that cosmology became a true scientific inquiry with the advent of the General Theory of Relativity. A few subsequent putative observations have been misconstrued in such a way as to support the prevailing Big Bang model by which the Universe is alleged to have burst into existence from an infinitely dense point-mass singularity. Yet it can be shown that the General Theory of Relativity and the Big Bang model are in conflict with well-established experimental facts.

Concerning Fundamental Mathematical and Physical Defects in the General Theory of Relativity

Authors: Stephen J. Crothers
Comments: 13 pages

The physicists have misinterpreted the quantity 'r' appearing in the socalled "Schwarzschild solution" as it is neither a distance nor a geodesic radius but is in fact the inverse square root of the Gaussian curvature of a spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section of the Schwarzschild manifold, and so it does not directly determine any distance at all in the Schwarzschild manifold - in other words, it determines the Gaussian curvature at any point in a spherically symmetric geodesic surface in the spatial section of the manifold. The concept of the black hole is consequently invalid. It is also shown herein that the Theory of Relativity forbids the existence of point-mass singularities because they imply infinite energies (or equivalently, that a material body can acquire the speed of light in vacuo), and so the black hole is forbidden by the Theory of Relativity. That Ric=Rμν = 0 violates Einstein's 'Principle of Equivalence' and so does not describe Einstein's gravitational field, is demonstrated. It immediately follows that Einstein's conceptions of the conservation and localisation of gravitational energy are invalid - the General Theory of Relativity violates the usual conservation of energy and momentum.

Emergent Gravity in Start of Cosmological Inflation as by Product of Dynamical Systems Mappings ?

Comments: 6 pages, one table. An entry into the 11 DSTA conference, in Lotz, Poland, in December 5-8, 2011m put in to facilitate mathematical development and continuation/ improvement of a suggestion brought up by Dr. R. Penrose which the author was priviliged to attend in summer , 2007, at the inagural opening of the new Penn State gravitational physics center.

We present how a Gaussian mapping, combined with what we hope to turn into a strange attractor for re cycling prior universe matter-energy may enable quantum gravity to form. And embed it in a larger- non linear theory. The key development to be worked upon would be turning into a strange attractor the supposition R. Penrose made as to re cycling the 'history' of the universe without the necessity of a 'big crunch', i.e. a contracting universe. The nature of the attractor would be instrumental in helping us come up with conditions enabling the evolution of pre Planckian embedding of non linear ' analog reality' ( 'classical' ) physics meshing into, with an increase in degrees of freedom into 'digital reality' ( 'quantum mechanics') and de facto quantum gravity , at the start of Planckian space time. This Planckian space time would mark the beginning of inflation.

Deceleration Parameter Q(Z) and Examination if a Joint DM-DE Model is Feasible, with Applications to " Atoms of Space Time " Thermodynamcs and BBN

Authors: A. Beckwith
Comments: 15 pages, 3 figures. Submitted to Advances in Astronomy

The case for a four dimensional graviton mass (non zero) influencing reacceleration of the universe in five dimensions is stated, with particular emphasis upon if five dimensional geometries as given below give us new physical insight as to cosmological evolution. One noticeable datum, that a calculated inflaton φ (t) may partly re-emerge after fading out in the aftermath of inflation. The inflaton may be a contributing factor to, with non zero graviton mass, in re acceleration of the universe a billion years ago. Many theorists assume that the inflaton is the source of entropy. The inflaton also may be the source of re acceleration of the universe, especially if the effects of a re emergent inflaton are in tandem with the appearance of macro effects of a small graviton mass, leading to a speed up of the rate of expansion of the universe one billion years ago, at red shift value of Z ~ .423. The key formula, for joint DM-DE shows up in terms of deceleration parameter, Q(z). The choice of the DM-DE eqn. may eventually illuminate how early BBN may affect the formation of low levels of lithium for early star formation which we reference toward the end of this document. We also discuss what is necessary for not only proper BBN, but also to the implications for 'atoms' of space time congruent with relic GW production, i.e. the thermodynamics of emergent structure.

The First 10-35 Seconds from the Imaginary to the Real a First Course in the Exploration of the Unknown

Authors: Nikiforos A. Sideris
Comments: 137 pages.

The first Edition of this work was published as a book in English under the title "THE FIRST 10-35 SECONDS" (ISBN: 960-630-425-6) in Athens on 2005. The circulation of this book however was restricted mainly in the little community of the Greek physicists. Thanks to the very smart development of the viXra.org. I considered that it would be good to present it to the wide International Physics Community in electronic form since the ideas and findings from my work bring new information in the sectors of Elementary Particle Physics and in Cosmology. Some of these new results are based on other works of mine that have already been published mainly in the international journal Physics Essays and also in my new book published in Greek under the title "The Machinary of Newtonian Gravitation and the fallacies of General Relativity" (ISBN: 978-960-8160-49-1). I hope that for many physicists will be useful to be informed that to many as yet unsolved problems of physics, this presentation will give answers that may be discussed. I thank in advance and I congratulate the viXra. organization for their contribution to transfer to the physics community new ideas that perhaps, to my opinion, will bring a little restlessness to some of the top leading minds of the contemporary physics. Perhaps this is one of the reasons that new ideas are prevented to be exposed by some of the top journals on physics. But the ancient Greeks had a proverb: Nothing can be hidden under the Sun.

On the Theory of Everything

Authors: Bertrand Wong
Comments: 4 pages.

A theory of everything , or, grand unified theory (which Einstein had been working on without success, with Superstring Theory now being a good candidate), is one which unites all the forces of nature, viz., gravity, electromagnetism, the strong nuclear force and the weak nuclear force. Important as this theory might be, it is lacking in one important fundamental aspect, viz., the role of consciousness, which could in fact be considered the most fundamental aspect of physics. This paper explains that a theory of consciousness is more important than a theory of everything or grand unified theory and should be the theory of everything instead, or, at least, a part of the theory of everything.
