Relativity


The theory of relativity, or simply relativity, encompasses two theories of Albert Einstein: special relativity and general relativity. However, the word relativity is sometimes used in reference to Galilean invariance.

Science and Hypothesis : Chapter 15 - Science and Hypothesis B

By: Henri Poincaré

Jules Henri Poincaré (1854 – 1912) was one of France's greatest mathematicians and theoretical physicists, and a philosopher of science. As a mathematician and physicist, he made many original fundamental contributions to pure and applied mathematics, mathematical physics and celestial mechanics. He was responsible for formulating the Poincaré conjecture, one of the most famous problems in mathematics. In his research on the three-body problem, Poincaré became the first ...

Dark Matter as a Quantum Foam In-Flow Effect

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: The galactic ?dark matter? effect is regarded as one of the major problems in fundamental physics. Here it is explained as a self-interaction dynamical effect of space itself, and so is not caused by an unknown form of matter. Because it was based on Kepler?s Laws for the motion of the planets in the solar system the Newtonian theory of gravity was too restricted. A reformulation and generalization of the Newtonian theory of gravity in terms of a velocity in-flo...

Description: Fraunhofer IOF Jena, Albert-Einstein-Str. 7, 07745 Jena, Germany. In this work a simple new method for calibration evaluation and calibration stability monitoring of fringe projection based 3D scanners is introduced. This method is based on high precision point correspondence finding of fringe projection sensors using phase values in two perpendicular directions and epipolar geometry concerning calibration data of stereo sensors. The calibration evaluatio...

Description: Géosciences Azur, UMR 6526, Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis, 250 rue Albert Einstein, Sophia-Antipolis, 06560 Valbonne, France. Using a new 3-D physical modelling technique we investigated the initiation and evolution of large scale landslides in presence of pre-existing large scale fractures and taking into account the slope material weakening due to the alteration/weathering. The modelling technique is based on the specially developed properly scal...

Begin the Adventure : How to Break the Light Barrier

By: Florentin Smarandache

For most of the 20th century, both relativity and star travel fascinated this writer. The reasons Albert Einstein concluded there is an absolute barrier at the speed of light seemed at first clear, then later not so clear upon closer examination. "The speed of light relative to what?" I often asked anyone who would listen. The common response was, "Light needs no specification of that kind; its speed is the same no matter who measures it." "That's true." I would respo...

One's reach should exceed one's grasp. Thus we reach for Alpha Centauri with a round-trip manned and womanned mission as the proposed overarching goal under a clear plan of exploration - a grand experiment described in later chapters. Whether or not we succeed in grasping the goal under this or under any plan is not as important as it is to set a definite plan and work towards its goal. The plan outlined here is in two phases: Phase one has a high probability of succe...

By: Christoph Poth

Einstein was right. The Big Bang never happend! www.einsteins-universe.com/en/ On the basis of the spiritual ideas of a Belgian priest and an Indian Brahmin, so-called “modern cosmology” has been peddling unadulterated mysticism for decades now. This mysticism has found worldwide distribution especially through a plethora of television documentaries, despite the fact that their pseudoscientific content has been proven to lie completely outside the laws of physics. ...

Time and Space Reversal Problems in Armenian Theory of Relativity

By: Robert Nazaryan; Haik Nazaryan

In this current article we are analyzing in detail, T-symmetry (time reversal transformation) and P-symmetry (spatial inverse transformations) phenomenons in Armenian Theory of Relativity in one dimensional physical space. For that purpose we are referring and using our previous articles results, especially in the case of research mirror reflection phenomena (spatial inversion) where we are mostly referring to our main research article, published in Armenia on June 2013...

Mental Radio

By: Sinclai, Upton

Description: Upton Sinclair took a gamble publishing this book. A lifelong Socialist who ran for high office several times, a muckraking author who had exposed the abuses of capitalism, was dabbling with what was seen as the occult. The impetus for this was his dear wife, Mary Craig Sinclair, known as 'Craig,' who had been aware all her life that she could sense things that had not yet happened, or which she had no rational access to. In the late 1920s, this came to ligh...

Self-Referential Noise and the Synthesis of Three-Dimensional Space

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Introduction: General relativity begins the modeling of reality by assuming differentiable manifolds and dynamical equations for a 3:1 metric spacetime. Clearly this amounts to a high level phenomenology which must be accompanied by various meta-rules for interpretation and application. The same situation also occurs in the quantum theory. But how are we to arrive at an understanding of the origin and logical necessity for the form of these laws and their interpretationa...

Engineering the Quantum Foam

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: In 1990 Alcubierre, within the General Relativity model for space-time, proposed a scenario for ?warp drive? faster than light travel, in which objects would achieve such speeds by actually being stationary within a bubble of space which itself was moving through space, the idea being that the speed of the bubble was not itself limited by the speed of light. However that scenario required exotic matter to stabilize the boundary of the bubble. Here that proposal...

Michelson-Morley Experiments Revisited and the Cosmic Background R...

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Excerpt: We report a simple re-analysis of the old results from the Michelson-Morley interferometer experiments that were designed to detect absolute motion. We build upon a recent (1998) analysis of the original data by Munera, which revealed small but significant effects after allowing for several systematic errors in the original analysis. The further re-analysis here reveals that a genuine effect of absolute motion is expected, in what is essentially a quantum interf...

Description : An unrealized potential to understand the genetic basis of aging in humans, is to consider the immense survival advantage of the rare individuals who live 100 years or more. The Longevity Gene Study was initiated in 1998 at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine to investigate longevity genes in a selected population : the ‘‘oldest old’’ Ashkenazi Jews, 95 years of age and older, and their children. The study proved the principle that some of these subject...

Process Physics: From Information Theory to Quantum Space and Matter

By: Reginald T. Cahill

Physics Literature

Abstract: This is a review of the new information-theoretic Process Physics. The fundamental assumption is that reality is to be modeled as self-organizing semantic or relational information using a self-referentially limited neural network model, where the information theoretic limitations are implemented via self-referential noise. This modeling was motivated by the discovery that such stochastic neural networks are foundational to known quantum field theories. In Proc...
