Recently, I completed and made available a new book Physics 642b: Patterns, Forces, Particles, and Stuff.
Why is the universe expanding? Does dark energy drive that expansion? Traditional physics poses such questions.
I wrote this book to propose answers. The book explores patterns pertaining to forces, particles, and matter-like stuff. The book pieces together – as would a detective – clues and develops patterns and theories.
Results propose new ways to catalog forces and elementary particles, new forces, new physics regarding light-speed particles, and new ways to interpret dark matter and dark energy.
Notably, results include that dark energy is stuff, but the expansion of the universe is driven by a zero-mass boson. Results also include proposals for a size, for objects in our universe, beyond which repulsion caused by the zero-mass boson dominates attraction caused by gravity; masses of neutrinos; and mathematical expressions for ratios of physical constants.
