Published “About Much Physics: United Models and Specific Predictions”

May 20, 2018

I published the book About Much Physics: United Models and Specific Predictions. The abstract is …

  • We address four physics opportunities. First, suggest new elementary particles and forces. Second, explain phenomena such as dark matter. Third, augment and 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 three known eras – early 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. Extended solutions correlate with known kinematics. We suggest 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 propose that our work unites, suggests details regarding, extends, suggests complements to, and suggests limits regarding aspects of traditional physics theory. Those aspects include classical physics, special relativity, general relativity, quantum mechanics, the elementary particle Standard Model, the cosmology timeline, and galaxy evolution scenarios. The work provides possible insight regarding foundation of physics topics.
  • Fourth, we suggest opportunities for people. We suggest opportunities for observational, experimental, and theoretical physics research. We suggest quantum field theory that features few interaction vertices, sums of few terms as alternatives to conditionally convergent sums of infinite numbers of terms, and no needs to deal with some infinities. We point to possible opportunities to further develop and apply modeling and math we use.

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

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.

Spoke on Dark Matter and Dark Energy, for NextNow

July 29, 2013

Recently, I gave two “Shedding Light on Dark Matter and Dark Energy and More” talks for NextNow.  One talk was July 18 in Berkeley.  The other was July 27 in Portola Valley.  (Each municipality is in the San Francisco Bay Area in northern California.)  Here is a link to a video of the second talk.

I was pleased that “non-scientists” seemed genuinely interested and asked good questions.  I discussed (in non-science terms) research that attempts the following.

  • Suggest descriptions of dark matter and dark energy.
  • Explain quantum gravity and unify it with electromagnetism.
  • Compute the mass of the Higgs boson and suggest masses of neutrinos.
  • Suggest a basis for P violation, CP violation, … and reframe concepts of such violations.
  • Predict undiscovered elementary particles and basic interactions.
  • List known elementary particles and find new uses for the Standard Model.
  • Provide other results.

I was one of several speakers (4 in Berkeley and 8 in Portola Valley).  Each talk was limited to 5 minutes.  11 of the 12 presentations each had 20 slides, with an automated change of slide every 15 seconds.  The format is called Ignite.  Other speakers discussed software and patents (Randy Farmer), a youth program based on sailing and discussing STEM {science, technology, engineering, and mathematics} (Ian Andrewes, The American Youth Sailing Force), the future of NextNow (Jay Cross), the practice of happiness (Randy Taran – Project Happiness), chocolate and writing (Birgitte Rasine – Birgitte Racine’s author web site), how to write books (Joel Orr), and why smart is sometimes dumb and dumb sometimes wise (Prasad Kaipa).

I would like to thank Bill Daul, Jay Cross, and Tammy Chan for offering these speaking opportunities and recording video.  Bill started NextNow years ago.  I have been privileged to be a member.  Various people, including Jay and Bill, are helping to try to even more invigorate the group.

Coincidentally, CreateSpace (an Amazon.com subsidiary) listed my book, Physics Small and Vast: Basic Interactions (via Create Space), earlier on the day of my presentation in Portola Valley.  And, the book is now available via Amazon at Physics Small and Vast: Basic Interactions (via Amazon.com), Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.de, and Amazon.fr.
