Newtonian versus Special-Relativistic Statistical Predictions for Low-Speed Scattering

- PhysicsPloS one
- 2012

For low-speed chaotic scattering, special-relativistic mechanics must be used, instead of the standard practice of using Newtonian mechanics, to obtain empirically-correct statistical predictions from an initially well-localized Gaussian ensemble.

Review of Multiscale Modeling of Detonation

The observation of 100-MeV synchrotron radiation from the Crab nebula is used to improve the previous limit by a factor of 40 million, ruling out this type of Lorentz violation, and thereby providing an important constraint on theories of quantum gravity.

A new test of Lorentz invariance is performed by comparing the resonance frequencies of two orthogonal cryogenic optical resonators subject to Earth's rotation over approximately 1 yr, improving the best previous result by about 2 orders of magnitude.

The frequencies of a cryogenic sapphire oscillator and a hydrogen maser are compared to set new constraints on a possible violation of Lorentz invariance and determine the variation of the oscillator frequency as a function of its orientation and of its velocity with respect to a preferred frame candidate.
