We review why the Thomas rotation is a crucial facet of special relativity, that is just as fundamental, and just as “unintuitive” and “paradoxical”, as such traditional effects as length… (More)

Abstract We calculate the masses of the lowest lying eigenstates of improved SU(2), SU(3), SU(4) and SU(5) Hamiltonian lattice gauge theory (LGT) in 2+1 dimensions using an analytic variational… (More)

The Foldy–Wouthuysen transformation of the Dirac Hamiltonian is generally taught as simply a mathematical trick that allows one to obtain a two-component theory in the low-energy limit. It is not… (More)

We review how antiparticles may be introduced in classical relativistic mechanics, and emphasize that many of their paradoxical properties can be more transparently understood in the classical than… (More)

There have been many declarations of the death of the Weinberg model of spontaneous CP violation. Previous studies, before the recent measurements of 0= , indicated that the model could not… (More)

We show that it is possible to obtain self-consistent and physically acceptable relativistic classical equations of motion for a point-like spin-half particle possessing an electric charge and a… (More)

We calculate the masses of the lowest lying eigenstates of improved SU(2) and SU(3) lattice gauge theory in 2+1 dimensions using an analytic variational approach. The ground state is approximated by… (More)

We argue that magnetic and electric charges of the Reissner-Nordstrom black hole are quantized in CP conserving theories. Dequantization phenomenon occurs when CP is broken either explicitly or… (More)

The original topological Aharonov-Casher (AC) effect is due to the interaction of the anomalous magnetic dipole moment (MDM) with certain configurations of electric field. Naively one would not… (More)

An extremely light scalar weakly interacting with light neutrinos has interesting consequences in stellar evolution, neutrino oscillations and laboratory neutrino mass measurements. In this paper we… (More)
