On the Existence of Gauge Functions for Space-Like Separations
So one of Jackson ́s aims in [1] is to show a whole class of gauge functions for several gauge conditions. The other aim was to prove that whatever the gauge conditions imposed on the Maxwell ́s
Mind and Tachyons: Mind-Body Interactive Dualism
Following on the observation in Vedanta that mind is restless and faster than matter, we propose that memory and thought in the brain involve tachyons. Although experiments to detect
Uma introdução à teoria dos táquions
The theory of relativity, which was proposed in the beginning of the 20th century, applies to particles and frames of reference whose velocity is less than the velocity of light. In this paper we
An Introduction to the Theory of Tachyons
The theory of relativity, which was proposed in the beginning of the 20th century, applies to particles and frames of reference whose velocity is less than the velocity of light. In this paper we
Tachyons, Quanta, and Chaos
It is shown using numerical simulation that classical charged tachyons have several features normally thought to be unique to quantum mechanics. Spin-like self-orbiting helical motions are shown to
Slower-than-Light Spin-1/2 Particles Endowed with Negative Mass Squared
Extending in a straightforward way the standard Dirac theory, we study a quantum mechanical wave equation describing free spinning particles — which we propose to call Pseudotachyons (PT's) — which

Fully Symmetric Relativistic Quantum Mechanics and Its Physical Implications
A new formulation of relativistic quantum mechanics is presented and applied to a free, massive, and spin zero elementary particle in the Minkowski spacetime. The reformulation requires that time and
The existence of superluminal particles is consistent with relativistic dynamics
On a Scale Invariant Model of Statistical Mechanics, Kinetic Theory of Ideal Gas, and Riemann Hypothesis
A scale invariant model of statistical mechanics is applied to derive invariant forms of conservation equations. A modified form of Cauchy stress tensor for fluid is presented that leads to modified


Considerations about the apparent «superluminal expansions» observed in astrophysics
SummaryThe orthodox models devised to explain the apparent «superluminal expansions» observed in astrophysics—and here briefly summarized and discussed together with the experimental data—do not seem
An extended theory of relativity in a six-dimensional manifold
The present paper develops arguments for the need to formulate the basic theories of physics in terms of a six-dimensional manifold, as opposed to the four-dimensional space-time continuum of
Bell’s theorem and the foundations of quantum physics
A locality property expressing the idea that causal influences can propagate only forward in time, from earlier cause to later effect, and no faster than light is shown to be mathematically
Generation of new electromagnetic fields in six-dimensional special relativity
SummaryNew electromagnetic fields arise in six-dimensional relativity because a gradient operator is defined with respect to the three time co-ordinates. These fields, defined previously, consist of
Massive narrow resonance solutions of strongly coupled relativistic particles: a mechanism of mass generation
By explicit solutions of the relativistic wave equation corresponding to strong singular (nonrenormalizable) magnetic dipole interactions, we show how very massive almost stable reonances, as well as
Proof of a quantum mechanical nonlocal influence
First it is proved that, in a deterministic theory, Malus' law requires that, if a photon is successively transmitted by two polarizers with appropriately chosen settings, the first transmission
Quantum mechanics from self-interaction
We explore the possibility thatzitterbewegung is the key to a complete understanding of the Dirac theory of electrons. We note that a literal interpretation of thezitterbewegung implies that the
