A review is given of hypothetical faster-than-light tachyons and the development of the author’s model of the neutrino mass states, which includes one tachyonic mass state doublet. Published empirical evidence for the model is summarized, including an interpretation of the mysterious Mont Blanc neutrino burst from SN 1987A as being due to tachyonic neutrinos having This possibility requires an 8 MeV antineutrino line from SN 1987A, which a new dark matter model has been found to support… Expand

Superluminal Neutrinos: Experimental Data and New Interpretative Theories
In this study the data of the OPERA and MINOS experiments, together with those related to the SN1987A supernova, are discussed in the context of the recent theories proposed for the superluminal muonExpand
Tachyons from a Laboratory Perspective
Since the first part of the twentieth century, it has been maintained that faster-than-light motion could produce time travel into the past with its accompanying causality-violating paradoxes.Expand
Algebraic questions about a FTL physics.
The recent proposal of a negative mass fluid to explain both the dark matter and energy has renovated the interest for cosmological solutions based upon non-ordinary masses.
Tachyons for Interstellar Communication
Concerns that tachyons, which have imaginary mass, may violate causality have been been discussed in the context of two distinct embodiments for constructing a message loop. One employs transmittersExpand
The duality in the affine actions on trees.
Every action on a tree given by a (finite) automaton has an associated dual action given by the dual automaton. In this talk I will consider the affine groups of subrings of a global function field,Expand


Tachyonic neutrinos and the neutrino masses
Abstract With a recent claim of superluminal neutrinos shown to be in error, 2012 may not be a propitious time to consider the evidence that one or more neutrinos may indeed be tachyons.Expand
Evidence for two neutrino mass eigenstates from SN 1987A
Abstract This paper reports a new phenomenological analysis of the neutrino burst detected from SN 1987A, and it reveals the presence of two mass eigenstates. The heavier mass eigenstate has mH =Expand
Sterile neutrino fits to dark matter mass profiles in the Milky Way and in galaxy clusters
In recent papers it was claimed that SN 1987A data supports the existence of 4.0 eV and 21.4 eV active neutrino mass eigenstates, and it was suggested that such large active neutrino masses could beExpand
3 Neutrino mass experiments fit a strange 3 + 3 model, but will KATRIN reveal the model’s unique 3-part signature?
Abstract Evidence is presented in support of an unconventional 3 + 3 model of the neutrino mass eigenstates with specific m2 > 0 and m2 0 masses of the model were originally suggested based on a SNExpand
The interactions of neutrinos from the supernova LMC 1987 A by Kamiokande II apparatus have a curious character. Time to energy correlation has two separated groups. If this is not completely byExpand
Direct search for mass of neutrino and anomaly in the tritium beta-spectrum
Abstract Results of the “Troitsk ν-mass” experiment on the search for the neutrino rest mass in the tritium beta-decay are presented. Study of time dependence of anomalious, bump-like structure atExpand
Pair creation constrains superluminal neutrino propagation.
It is found that most of the neutrino would have suffered several pair emissions en route, causing the beam to be depleted of higher energy neutrinos, presenting a significant challenge to the superluminal interpretation of the OPERA data. Expand
Six observations consistent with the electron neutrino being a m2=-0.11±0.02eV2 tachyon
Abstract Six observations involving cosmology, particle physics and cosmic rays are consistent with the hypothesis that the electron neutrino is a m ν , e 2 = - 0.11 ± 0.02 eV 2 tachyon. TheExpand
The OPERA collaboration
The OPERA experiment has discovered the tau neutrino appearance in the CNGS muon neutrino beam, in agreement with the 3 neutrino flavour oscillation hypothesis. The OPERA neutrino interaction target,Expand
Tritium decay and the hypothesis of tachyonic neutrinos
Abstract. Numerous recent measurements indicate an excess of counts near the endpoint of the electron energy spectrum in tritium decay. We show that this effect is expected if the neutrino is aExpand
