We consider one of the fundamental debates in performing the relativity theory, namely, the ether and the relativity points of view, in a way to aid the learning of the subjects. In addition, we present our views and prospects while describing the issues that being accessible to many physicists and allowing broader views. Also, we very briefly review the two almost recent observations of the Webb redshift and the ultra high energy cosmic rays, and the modified relativity models that have been…

Cosmological constant implementing Mach principle in general relativity
We consider the fact that noticing on the operational meaning of the physical concepts played an impetus role in the appearance of general relativity (GR). Thus, we have paid more attention to the
Derivation of Generalized Einstein's Equations of Gravitation in Inertial Systems Based on a Sink Flow Model of Particles
J. C. Maxwell, B. Riemann and H. Poincare have proposed the idea that all microscopic particles are sink flows in a fluidic aether. Following this research program, a previous theory of gravitation
QED treatment of linear elastic waves in asymmetric environments
Regarding some logical gaps in the existing asymmetric elastic theories, by generalizing (i.e., via adding vibration degrees of freedom) and modifying (i.e., via introducing gauge property of the

CosMIn: THE SOLUTION TO THE COSMOLOGICAL CONSTANT PROBLEM
The current acceleration of the universe can be modeled in terms of a cosmological constant Λ. We show that the extremely small value of , the holy grail of theoretical physics, can be understood in
Dark Energy and Dark Gravity
Observations provide increasingly strong evidence that the universe is accelerating. This revolutionary advance in cosmological observations confronts cosmological theory with a tremendous challenge,
A Simple Varying-alpha Cosmology
We investigate the cosmological consequences of a simple theory in which the electric charge $e$ is allowed to vary. The theory is locally gauge and Lorentz invariant, and satisfies general
Dark energy: current issues
The observed recent accelerated expansion of the Universe constitutes a dramatic departure from traditional views. The mechanism behind this accelerated expansion is still mysterious and is a major

Relativity: The Special and the General Theory A Popular Exposition
A POPULAR exposition of the doctrine of Relativity and what it implies: for this the world has been crying since the astronomers announced that the stars had proved it true. Here is an excellent
Chameleon Cosmology
The evidence for the accelerated expansion of the Universe and the time dependence of the fine-structure constant suggests the existence of at least one scalar field with a mass of order H0. If such
Varying-α theories and solutions to the cosmological problems
Abstract If the fine structure constant α = e 2 /(ℏ c ) were to change, then a number of interpretations would be possible, attributing this change either to variations in the electron charge, the
Dark energy and dark gravity: theory overview
Observations provide increasingly strong evidence that the universe is accelerating. This revolutionary advance in cosmological observations confronts theoretical cosmology with a tremendous
A simple cosmology with a varying fine structure constant.
TLDR
This model satisfies geonuclear, nucleosynthesis, and cosmic microwave background constraints on time variation in alpha, while fitting the observed accelerating Universe and evidence for small alpha variations in quasar spectra and specific restrictions on the nature of the dark matter.
