The Atomic Nuclei, Elementary Particles and the Nature of Matter Nuclear physics emerged as a new independent science when, ten years ago, Cockcroft and Walton, working on a suggestion by Rutherford, first used protons artificially accelerated to immense velocities for bombarding other heavier atoms. Before that time, work of this kind had only been done with the help of radioactive substances, atoms of which are transmuted spontaneously without any outside agent, with the expulsion of alpha… 

Innovative Solutions of Unsolved Problems and Misconceptions in Physics

According to a previous review of thermodynamics of electromagnetism, the Maxwell’s wave Equations were casted into an energy frame of reference by replacing the time in these Equations by entropy.

MICHEL JANSSEN AND MATTHEW MECKLENBURG FROM CLASSICAL TO RELATIVISTIC MECHANICS: ELECTROMAGNETIC MODELS OF THE ELECTRON 1. INTRODUCTION “Special relativity killed the classical dream of using the energy-momentum- velocity relations as a means of probing the dynamical origins of [the mass

“Special relativity killed the classical dream of using the energy-momentumvelocity relations as a means of probing the dynamical origins of [the mass of the electron]. The relations are purely

CHARGED PARTICLES ARE PREVENTED FROM GOING FASTER THAN THE SPEED OF LIGHT BY LIGHT ITSELF: A BIOPHYSICAL CELL BIOLOGIST'S CONTRIBUTION TO PHYSICS

Investigations of living organisms have led biologists and physicians to introduce fundamental concepts, including Brownian motion, the First Law of Thermodynamics, Poiseuille's Law of fluid flow,

Rethinking the Foundations of the Theory of Special Relativity: Stellar Aberration and the Fizeau Experiment

In a previous paper published in this journal, we described a new relativistic wave equation that accounts for the propagation of light from a source to an observer in two different inertial frames.

The Theory of (Exclusively) Local Beables

It is shown how, starting with the de Broglie–Bohm pilot-wave theory, one can construct a new theory of the sort envisioned by several of QM’s founders: a Theory of Exclusively Local Beables (TELB).

NAA for Life Sciences at Frank Laboratory of Neutron Physics, Joint Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna

Experience in applying conventional and epithermal neutron activation analysis for some challenging areas of the life sciences is reviewed. For more than 25 years of its operation the radioanalytical

x ] 3 H(SO 4 ) 2 mixed crystals, which has earlier been determined by the dielectric spectroscopy, is stabilized below room temperature if Rb concentration exceeds 9%. The presented results of X-ray

Hendrik Antoon Lorentz’s struggle with quantum theory

A historical overview is given of the contributions of Hendrik Antoon Lorentz in quantum theory. Although especially his early work is valuable, the main importance of Lorentz’s work lies in the
