Review of the Empirical Evidence for Superluminal Particles and the 3 + 3 Model of the Neutrino Masses

A review is given of hypothetical faster-than-light tachyons and the development of the author’s 3+3 model of the neutrino mass states, which includes one tachyonic mass state doublet. Published

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

Neutrinos as Superluminal Particles

Based on parity violation in the weak interaction and evidences from neutrino oscillation, a natural choice is that neutrinos may be superluminal particles with tiny mass. To keep causality for

Lepton pair Čerenkov radiation emitted by tachyonic neutrinos: Lorentz-covariant approach and IceCube data

Current experiments do not exclude the possibility that one or more neutrinos are very slightly superluminal or that they have a very small tachyonic mass. Important bounds on the size of a

New fermionic dark matters, extended Standard Model and cosmic rays

Three generations of leptons and quarks correspond to the lepton charges (LCs) in this work. Then, the leptons have the electric charges (ECs) and LCs. The quarks have the ECs, LCs and color charges

We consider extensions of the Dirac equation with mass terms m1+i γ 5m2 and im1+γ 5 m2. The corresponding Hamiltonians are Hermitian and pseudo-Hermitian (“γ Hermitian”), respectively. The

From Generalized Dirac Equations to a Candidate for Dark Energy

We consider extensions of the Dirac equation with mass terms and . The corresponding Hamiltonians are Hermitian and pseudo-Hermitian ( Hermitian), respectively. The fundamental spinor solutions for



Neutrino mass limits from SN1987A.

The Irvine-Michigan-Brookhaven data, with a higher energy threshold, primarily provide information regarding the total duration of the burst and bound 12 eV/c 2 is obtained.

The analysis of the energies and times of arrival of neutrino events in the Kamioka and Irvine-Michigan-Brookhaven detectors yields two mass groupings; a preliminary assignment of flavors to the neutrinos producing these events is attempted but large statistical and systematic uncertainties necessitate caution in assessing this interpretation.

Neutrinos from type II supernovae: The first 100 milliseconds

The collapse of a 1.17 solar mass iron core is numerically followed through infall to 100 ms past core bounce, and the emergent neutrino spectra during each phase are highlighted. It is found that,

Observation of a neutrino burst from the supernova SN1987A.

A neutrono burst was observed in the KAMIOKANDE-II detector on 23 February during a time interval of 13 seconds and consisted of 11 electron events of energy 7.5 to 36 MeV with angles 18°±18° and 15°±27°.

Implications for the cosmic ray spectrum of a negative electron neutrino (mass)**2

The hypothesis that the electron neutrino is a tachyon with |m|=sqrt(-m^2) = 0.5 eV/c^2 is consistent with certain properties of the cosmic ray spectrum, including: the existence of a change in power

Angular distribution of events from SN1987A.

Improved measurements of the event energies and energy uncertainties, relative times, triggering efficiencies, and angles from the presumed source are presented.
