Published “Unified Physics including Dark Matter and Dark Energy” (a guest blog)

February 11, 2018

Stephen Perrenod published my guest blog “Unified Physics including Dark Matter and Dark Energy.” (link)

The article describes aspects of my physics research. (See also, my webpage.)

I appreciate Stephen’s inviting me to write the article. He has a Ph.D. in astrophysics from Harvard; maintains a web site devoted to astrophysics (link); writes good responses to science questions posted on Quora (link); and consults to technology companies in the areas of AI, Big Data, and High Performance Computing.

I welcome feedback, discussion, and collaboration. I welcome people trying to connect other people with my work and/or me.


Published “Some Physics United: With Predictions and Models for Much”

January 8, 2018

I published the book Some Physics United: With Predictions and Models for Much. The abstract is …

  • We address four physics opportunities. First, predict new elementary particles and forces. Second, explain phenomena such as dark matter. Third, unite physics theories and models. Fourth, point to opportunities for further research.
  • We use models based on solutions to equations featuring isotropic pairs of isotropic quantum harmonic oscillators.
  • First, we show solutions that match the known elementary particles. We propose that other solutions correlate with elementary particles that people have yet to detect and with dark energy forces leading to the three known eras – initial acceleration, subsequent deceleration, and current acceleration – pertaining to the rate of expansion of the universe.
  • Second, we extend solutions to encompass known conservation-law symmetries. We note that extended solutions correlate with known kinematics. We propose that extended solutions describe dark matter, explain ratios of density of dark matter to density of ordinary matter, correlate with dark energy density, and explain other phenomena.
  • Third, we note that the work unites, extends, and limits aspects of traditional physics. Those aspects include classical physics, special relativity, general relativity, quantum mechanics, the elementary particle Standard Model, and the cosmology timeline. The work provides possible insight regarding foundations of physics topics.
  • Fourth, we suggest opportunities for people. We suggest opportunities for observational, experimental, and theoretical physics research. We point to possible opportunities to further develop and apply math we use.

I invite you to read, enjoy, learn, and extend work “Some Physics United” discusses.

e&s (Engineering & Science) publishes 2-sentence article

September 14, 2016

The Fall 2016 edition of Caltech’s magazine e&S (Engineering & Science) includes my 2-sentence article under a heading of “In honor of Caltech’s 125th, we asked alumni: What’s your favorite Caltech story, personal or historical? Here are just a few of those memories.”

The magazine includes the following text. (link)

  • As a math major and senior, I took graduate-level physics courses taught by Richard Feynman, Rudolf Mossbauer, and Kip Thorne. THREE GREAT TEACHERS teaching three great courses, each in a subject for which the teacher is, to put it mildly, well known.
