SummaryWe suggest that the Higgs might be unobservable as a free particle, due to its origin at a symmetry-breaking mechanism. The standard model is kept intact, only the definition of the vacuum for the Higgs is changed. With the new (natural) definition, the Higgs propagator is half-advanced and half-retarded. This Green’s function is compatible with the absence of free particles. 
Iterated Kleinian Equations
A higher order field has different forms of excitation. Some of them have negative energies. The signs of the quantization rules depend on the signs of the energies. An abnormal sign implies aExpand
A Repulsive Interaction in Classical Electrodynamics
Herein, we introduce an additional term into the induction equation (one of the Maxwell’s equation). The related Lagrangian formalism applying the scalar and vector potentials is fitted to thisExpand
Wheeler Propagator of the Lorentz Invariant Thermal Energy Propagation
Two decades ago it was made the first steps to establish a really Hamiltonian description of field theory of dissipative transport processes in order to apply all of the tools of modern fieldExpand
Can a Lorentz Invariant Equation Describe Thermal Energy Propagation Problems
In the new technologies the development towards the small scales initiates and encourages the reformulation of those well-known transport equations, like heat and electric conduction, that wereExpand


A modification of the standard model of electroweak interactions with the nonlocal Higgs sector is proposed. Proper form of nonlocality makes Higgs particles unobservable after the electroweakExpand
Weak interactions at very high energies: The role of the Higgs-boson mass
We give an S -matrix-theoretic demonstration that if the Higgs-boson mass exceeds M c = ( 8 π 2 / 3 G F ) 1 / 2 , parital-wave unitarity is not respected by the tree diagrams for two-body scatteringExpand
Propagator for Complex-Mass Fields
A complex-mass field obeys a Klein-Gordon equation with a complex-mass parameter. The usual canonical procedures and quantization lead to a Hamiltonian whose spectrum is continuous and extends fromExpand
The tachyon propagator
SummaryFollowing the canonical quantization procedure for a tachyon field, the usual Hamiltonian and the creation and annihilation operators are obtained. The observation that the massExpand
Interaction with the Absorber as the Mechanism of Radiation
"We must, therefore, be prepared to find that further advance into this region will require a still more extensive renunciation of features which we are accustomed to demand of the space time mode ofExpand
Classical Electrodynamics in Terms of Direct Interparticle Action
Many of our present hopes to understand the behavior of matter and energy rely upon the notion of field. Consequently it may be appropriate to re-examine critically the origin and use of thisExpand
Tachyons and Higher Order Wave Equations
We consider a fourth order wave equation having normal as well as tachyonic solutions. The propagators are, respectively, the Feynman causal function and the Wheeler-Green function (half advanced andExpand
