# A Consistent Theory of Tachyons with Interesting Physics for Neutrinos

@article{Schwartz2022ACT, title={A Consistent Theory of Tachyons with Interesting Physics for Neutrinos}, author={Charles Schwartz}, journal={Symmetry}, year={2022}, volume={14}, pages={1172} }

Working strictly within the physics theories of Special and General Relativity, I have produced a series of studies developing a consistent mathematical description of tachyons, using both classical and quantum frameworks for particles and fields. The most important choices throughout this work concern the question of which habits from the study of ordinary particles (those that are restricted to velocities less than that of light) should be kept and which should be changed. The first part of…

We introduce a new symmetry, light-cone reflection (LCR), which interchanges timelike and spacelike intervals. Our motivation is to provide a reason, based on symmetry, why tachyons might exist, with…
