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…

Tachyon Interactions

A consistent theory of free tachyons has shown how tachyon neutrinos can explain major cosmological phenomena, dark energy and dark matter. Now, we investigate how tachyon neutrinos might interact

Proposed Experiments re Tachyon-Neutrinos

Recent theory of tachyon neutrinos, providing an explanation for Dark Matter, leads to the prediction of an enhanced signal in detection of Cosmic Neutrino Background.

Tachyons as a Consequence of Light-Cone Reflection Symmetry

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

Theoretical Search for Gravitational Bound States of Tachyons

The mission here is to see if we can find bound states for tachyons in some gravitational environment. That could provide an explanation for the phenomena called Dark Matter. Starting with the



Toward a Quantum Theory of Tachyon Fields

We construct momentum space expansions for the wave functions that solve the Klein-Gordon and Dirac equations for tachyons, recognizing that the mass shell for such fields is very different from what

An Approach for Modelling Tachyons with Gravitation

This work expands previous efforts, within the classical theories of Special and General Relativity, to include tachyons (faster-than-light particles) along with ordinary (slower-than-light) particles

A Review of Searches for Evidence of Tachyons

Here, we review searches for empirical evidence for the existence of tachyons, superluminal particles having m2<0. The review considers searches for new particles that might be tachyons, as well as

Theoretical Investigation of Subluminal Particles Endowed with Imaginary Mass

In this article, the general solution of the tachyonic Klein-Gordon equation is obtained as a Fourier integral performed on a suitable path in the complex \omega-plane. In particular, it is proved

In earlier work we showed how to handle the Group Theoretical issue of the Little Group for spin 1/2 tachyons by introducing a special metric in the vector space of one-particle states. Here that

Some improvements in the theory of faster-than-light particles

The relationship between differentially conserved quantities (electric current density J/sup ..mu../, stress tensor density T/sup munu/, etc.) and the conserved integral quantities (charge Q,

The Poincaré Group

The relativity of Einstein-Minkowski should be substituted by another relativity which postulates an absolute origin of time. This being at a great distance in the past, the new relativity will be a

Tachyon Dynamics - for Neutrinos?

Following earlier studies that provided a consistent theory of kinematics for tachyons (faster-than-light particles) we here embark on a study of tachyon dynamics, both in classical physics and in

Revised theory of tachyons in general relativity

A minus sign is inserted, for good reason, into the formula for the energy–momentum tensor for tachyons. This leads to remarkable theoretical consequences and a plausible explanation for the
