Approximately twenty five years ago a novel proposal was made to explain two of the outstanding cosmological conundrums, namely those of the Horizon Problem and the Flatness Problem of the Universe. These are the fact that widely separated parts of the sky that have never been in causal contact during the evolution of the Universe have apparently the same CMB temperature and the fact that the mean density of the Universe is very close to the critical one, i.e. very close to the density that…

The Newtonian gravity constant G plays a central role in gravitational theory. Researchers have, since at least the 1980s, tried to see if the Newton gravitational constant can be expressed or

The Sagnac effect in conformal Weyl gravity

We investigate the Sagnac effect, representing the difference in travel time or phase shift observed for relativistic matter or light beams counter-propagating in a rotating interferometer. This is

1 A ( geometrical ) Hilbert space based quantum gravity model

In the book „The Mathematical Reality, Why Space and Time are an Illusion“, (UnA1), , the concept of „Vision – Mathematization – Simplification“ is proclaimed. The overall „Vision“ is about a

A Kummer function based Zeta function theory to prove the Riemann Hypothesis and the Goldbach conjecture

We claim that an alternative Kummer function based Zeta function theory overcomes current challenges of several RH criteria. The probably most elegant RH criterion is the Hilbert-Polya conjecture,

From the Publisher: Roger Penrose's views on the large-scale physics of the universe, the small-scale world of quantum physics and the physics of the mind are controversial and widely discussed. The
