The following document is to answer if higher dimensions add value to answering fundamental cosmology questions. The results are mixed, 1st with higher dimensions apparently helping in reconstructing and preserving the value of Planck’s constant, and the fine structure constant from a prior to a present universe, while 2nd failing to add anything different(More)
First, using a driven harmonic oscillator model by a numerical scheme formulated by Littlewood, we present a computer simulation of charge density waves (CDW); next, we use this simulation to show how the dielectric model presented via this procedure leads to a blow up at the initialization of a threshold field ET . Finding this approach highly unphysical,(More)
We use an explicit Randall-Sundrum brane world effective potential as congruent with conditions needed to form a minimum entropy starting point for an early universe vacuum state. We are investigating if the Jeans instability criteria mandating low entropy, low temperature initial pre inflation state configuration can be reconciled with thermal conditions(More)
BACKGROUND Hysteroscopic sterilization using tubal microinsert devices is an increasingly common method of contraception. Postprocedure pain is typically minimal and brief, adding to the popularity of this method. This report describes a case of intractable pain after placement of microinserts, ultimately requiring removal of the inserts. CASE A(More)
We once again reference Theorem 6.1.2 of the book by Ellis, Maartens, and MacCallum in order to argue that if there is a non zero initial scale factor, that there is a partial breakdown of the Fundamental Singularity theorem which is due to the Raychaudhuri equation. Afterwards, we review a construction of what could happen if we put in what Ellis,(More)
We present evidence in terms of a D’Alembertain operator acting on a scalar field minus the first derivative of a potential system, with respect to an inflaton scalar field, that the Penrose model as outlined as an alternative to cosmological big crunch models gives us emergent behavior for an inflaton scalar field in early universe cosmological models.(More)
We initially look at a non singular universe representation of entropy, based in part on what was brought up by Muller and Lousto, and then generalize it to the question of initial time step as a function of NLED (non linear Electrodynamics) . Speculations as to the contribution of initial entropy to massive gravitons is also included. In addition, the non(More)
We find that having the scale factor close to zero due to a given magnetic field value in an early universe magnetic field affects how we would interpret Mukhanov’s chapter on “self reproduction” of the universe in in his reference. The stronger an early-universe magnetic field is, the greater the likelihood of production of about 20 new domains of size(More)
