Pair production is a key component of mass-energy equivalence yet the deeper processes whereby photons transform into matter-antimatter pairs are unknown. A theory is presented for the mechanics of pair production at the fundamental level. Physical realism was accepted at the outset. A theory was developed comprising internal structures (hidden variables) and discrete fields, called the Cordus theory. Logical inference was used to determine the mechanics for pair production under these…

Energy Conversion Mechanics for Photon Emission per Non-Local Hidden-Variable Theory
Problem-Energy conversion processes in optical phenomena are incompletely explained by wave theory or quantum mechanics. There is a need for ontologically rich explanations at the level of individual
Towards Unification of Fundamental Interactions Using Non-Local Hidden-Variable Theory
Problem: The mechanisms whereby force operates are poorly understood at the fundamental level. This is reflected in the difficulty of finding a single coherent theory for explaining all the
A Physical Explanation for Particle Spin
CONTEXT The spin of a particle is physically manifest in multiple phenomena. For quantum mechanics (QM), spin is an intrinsic property of a point particle, but an ontological explanation is lacking.
Deeper mechanisms for force and the fundamental interactions from a NLHV perspective
Problem: The mechanisms whereby force operates are poorly understood at the fundamental level. This is reflected in the difficulty of finding a single coherent theory for explaining all the
A Physical Basis for Entanglement in a Non-Local Hidden Variable Theory
Problem: Superposition and entanglement are coherent effects, which can be quantified by quantum mechanics (QM), but lack descriptive explanations. They are typically analysed with inequality
Entropy at the Level of Individual Particles: Analysis of Maxwell’s Agent with a Hidden-Variable Theory
Problem: Maxwell’s Agent (MA) is a thought experiment about whether the second Law is violated at smaller scales. This is a complex problem because the scale dependencies are unclear for perfect gas
Effect of Matter Distribution on Relativistic Time Dilation
Context: Derivations for the relativity formulations for the Lorentz are conventionally based on continuum mechanics. Purpose: This paper derives the formulations from a particle perspective.
Explanation of Photon Navigation in the Mach-Zehnder Interferometer
Photons in interferometers manifest the functional ability to simultaneously navigate both paths through the device, but eventually appear at only one outlet. How this relates to the physical

Context The existing literature on particle motion at the fundamental level is sparse. Particles, whether classical or quantum, are assumed to move with a continuous (even if uncertain) velocity.
Lorentz Transformation and Relativistic Doppler Derived from a Particle Mechanics
PROBLEM: General and special relativity provide the formulations for how an observer in one frame of reference perceives motion in another. These cosmological principles arise from application of
