It has been proposed that the scattering of electromagnetic zero-point radiation by accelerating objects results in a reaction force that may account, at least in part, for inertia [1,2,3]. This arises because of asymmetries in the electromagnetic zero-point field (ZPF) or electromagnetic quantum vacuum as perceived from an accelerating reference frame. In such a frame, the Poynting vector and momentum flux of the ZPF become non-zero. If one assumes that scattering of the ZPF radiation takes… 
Inertial mass and the quantum vacuum fields
Even when the Higgs particle is finally detected, it will continue to be a legitimate question to ask whether the inertia of matter as a reaction force opposing acceleration is an intrinsic or
Gravity and the Quantum Vacuum Inertia Hypothesis
In previous work it has been shown that the electromagnetic quantum vacuum, or electromagnetic zero-point field, makes a contribution to the inertial reaction force on an accelerated object. We show
Vacuum charges within a teleparallel weyl tensor: a new apporach to quantum gravity
A comparison is given between the Newtonian and Einsteinian frames of gravitation. From this it is shown that there exist a weak connection to gravitation and electromagnetism. This connection is

The quantum vacuum, fractal geometry, and the quest for a new theory of gravity
In this letter recent developments are shown in experimental and theoretical physics which brings into question the validity of General Relativity. This letter emphasizes the construction of a
Can zero-point phenomena truly be the origin of inertia?
A current approach to the problem of inertia suggests that the origin of the inertial properties of matter is the interaction between matter and vacuum electromagnetic zero-point radiation. Herein,

Planck-Einstein-de Broglie relations for wave packet: the acoustic world
In this paper we study the relations of Planck-Einstein-de Broglie type for the wave packets. We assume that the wave packet is a possible model of particle . When studying the behaviour of the wave
Vacuum Energy
There appears to be three, perhaps related, ways of approaching the nature of vacuum energy. The first is to say that it is just the lowest energy state of a given, usually quantum, system. The
Electron as a Complex-Dynamical Interaction Process
A system of two initially homogeneous, physically real fields uniformly attracted to each other is considered as the simplest basis of the self-developing world structure. It is shown that the system


Inertia as reaction of the vacuum to accelerated motion
Abstract It was proposed by Haisch, Rueda and Puthoff that the inertia of matter could be interpreted at least in part as a reaction force originating in interactions between the electromagnetic

The interpretation that inertia is an electromagnetic resistance arising from the known spectral distortion of the ZPF in accelerated frames is proposed and suggests a physically rigorous version of Mach's principle.
Contribution to Inertial Mass by Reaction of the Vacuum to Accelerated Motion
We present an approach to understanding the origin of inertia involving the electromagnetic component of the quantum vacuum and propose this as a step toward an alternative to Mach's principle.
Derivation of inertial forces from the Einstein-de Broglie-Bohm (E.d.B.B.) causal stochastic interpretation of quantum mechanics
The physical origin of inertial forces is shown to be a consequence of the local interaction of Dirac's real covariant ether model(1) with accelerated microobjects, considered as real extended

A previously derived Brownian behavior (paper I) induced by the zero-point field is assumed to hold for a more realistic model. The statistical description of the particle in our model leads

The detailed motion of a free Dirac electron is investigated by examining the expectation values of the position r and of r×ṙ in a wave packet. It is shown that the well-known zitterbewegung may be
