Study of the anomalous acceleration of Pioneer 10 and 11
Our previous analyses of radio Doppler and ranging data from distant spacecraft in the solar system indicated that an apparent anomalous acceleration is acting on Pioneer 10 and 11, with a magnitudeExpand
Coherent States
Coherent states (of the harmonic oscillator) were introduced by Erwin Schrödinger (1887-1961) at the very beginning of quantum mechanics in response to a complaint by Lorentz that Schrödinger’s waveExpand
Indication, from Pioneer 10 / 11, Galileo, and Ulysses data, of an apparent anomalous, weak, long range acceleration
Radio metric data from the Pioneer 10/11, Galileo, and Ulysses spacecraft indicate an apparent anomalous, constant, acceleration acting on the spacecraft with a magnitudeExpand
Phase and Angle Variables in Quantum Mechanics
The quantum-mechanical description of phase and angle variables is reviewed, with emphasis on the proper mathematical description of these coordinates. The relations among the operators and stateExpand
The arguments against ``antigravity'' and the gravitational acceleration of antimatter
Abstract In the 1950's interest arose in the science-fiction idea of “antigravity”. This concept was a speculation that matter and antimatter would repel each other in ordinary tensor (Einsteinian)Expand
Terrestrial and Extraterrestrial Limits on The Photon Mass
We give a review of methods used to set a limit on the mass $\ensuremath{\mu}$ of the photon. Direct tests for frequency dependence of the speed of light are discussed, along with more sensitiveExpand
The energy transfer process in planetary flybys
Abstract We illustrate the energy transfer during planetary flybys as a function of time using a number of flight mission examples. The energy transfer process is rather more complicated than aExpand
Photon and graviton mass limits
Efforts to place limits on deviations from canonical formulations of electromagnetism and gravity have probed length scales increasing dramatically over time. Historically, these studies have passedExpand
We derive in simple analytic closed form the eigenfunctions and eigenenergies for the hydrogen atom in N dimensions. A section is devoted to the specialization to one dimension. Comments are made onExpand
