Mass of the fundamental fermion and degeneracy of the vacuum

Within the framework of the Heisenberg variant of the unified nonlinear spinor theory of elementary particles an attempt is made to calculate the mass of the fundamental fermion (“nucleon”). The

A four-dimensional generalization of the quantum Hall effect.

A generalization of the quantum Hall effect, where particles move in four dimensional space under a SU(2) gauge field, is constructed, which has a macroscopic number of degenerate single particle states and forms an incompressible quantum liquid.

High Energy Quantumelectrodynamics II

Quantumelectrodynamics is at present the only example of a complete relativistic quantum theory which is known to be relevant to physics. The rules for calculation based upon Feynman diagrams give

Looking for a Possible Breakdown of Local Lorentz Invariance for Electromagnetic Phenomena: Theory and First Experimental Results

We propose a new electromagnetic test of breakdown of local Lorentz invariance. It is based essentially on the detection of a non-zero force between a circular steady current and a charge, both at

A note on spontaneously broken Lorentz invariance

We consider a relativistic effective field theory of vector boson whose vacuum exhibits spontaneous breaking of Lorentz invariance. We argue that a simple model of this type, considered recently by

Dynamical foundations of the brane-induced gravity

We present a comprehensive formalism to derive precise expressions for the induced gravity of the braneworld, assuming the dynamics of the Dirac–Nambu–Goto type. The quantum fluctuations of the brane



Divergence of perturbation theory in quantum electrodynamics

An argument is presented which leads tentatively to the conclusion that all the power-series expansions currently in use in quantum electrodynamics are divergent after the renormalization of mass and

Dynamical Model of Elementary Particles Based on an Analogy with Superconductivity. II

It is suggested that the nucleon mass arises largely as a self-energy of some primary fermion field through the same mechanism as the appearance of energy gap in the theory of superconductivity. The
