"Mysteries"of Modern Physics and the Fundamental Constants $c$, $h$, and $G$

  title={"Mysteries"of Modern Physics and the Fundamental Constants \$c\$, \$h\$, and \$G\$},
  author={William Stuckey and Timothy J. McDevitt and Michael Silberstein},
We review how the kinematic structures of special relativity and quantum mechanics both stem from the relativity principle, i.e., “no preferred reference frame” (NPRF). Essentially, NPRF applied to the measurement of the speed of light c gives the light postulate and leads to the geometry of Minkowski spacetime, while NPRF applied to the measurement of Planck’s constant h gives “average-only” projection and leads to the denumerable-dimensional Hilbert space of quantum mechanics. These kinematic… 


Quantum Theory: Informational Foundations and Foils
This book provides the first unified overview of the burgeoning research area at the interface between Quantum Foundations and Quantum Information, with fourteen original contributions from leading experts in the field covering some of the most promising research directions that have emerged in the new wave of quantum foundations.
Quantum Mechanics as Quantum Information (and only a little more)
In this paper, I try once again to cause some good-natured trouble. The issue remains, when will we ever stop burdening the taxpayer with conferences devoted to the quantum foundations? The suspicion
Gravitation and Cosmology: Principles and Applications of the General Theory of Relativity
A leading physicist delves into relativity and experimental applications Gravitation and Cosmology: Principles and Applications of the General Theory of Relativity offers a Nobel laureate's
Albert Einstein: Philosopher-Scientist
Written by the man considered the "Person of the Century" by Time magazine, this is not a glimpse into Einstein's personal life, but an extension and elaboration into his thinking on science. Two of
Quantum Field Theory in a Nutshell
This chapter provides a survey of quantum electrodynamics, the quantum theory of the electromagnetic field and its interaction with electrically charged particles, such as electrons. We start by
The Ontology Of Spacetime
The sixteen papers collected in this volume are expanded and revised versions of talks delivered at the Second International Conference on the Ontology of Spacetime, organized by the International
however (for it was the literal soul of the life of the Redeemer, John xv. io), is the peculiar token of fellowship with the Redeemer. That love to God (what is meant here is not God’s love to men)

On Time
I HAVE deferred my answer to the remarks of Mr. J. J. Murphy (NATURE, vol. xvi. p. 182) till now, in order to see if my letter of June 14 would cause more discussion. But it seems that my views are
