Problem - The theory of Relativity is premised on the constancy of the speed of light (c) in-vacuo. While no empirical evidence convincingly shows the speed to be variable, nonetheless from a theoretical perspective the invariance is an assumption. Need- It is possible that the evidence could be explained by a different theory. Approach - A non-local hidden-variable (NLHV) solution, the Cordus particule theory, is applied to identify the causes of variability in the fabric density, and then…

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.
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
Towards Unification of Fundamental Interactions Using Non-Local Hidden-Variable Theory

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.
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.

New varying speed of light theories
We review recent work on the possibility of a varying speed of light (VSL). We start by discussing the physical meaning of a varying-c, dispelling the myth that the constancy of c is a matter of
A limit on the variation of the speed of light arising from quantum gravity effects
TLDR
The detection of emission up to ∼31 GeV from the distant and short GRB, and no evidence for the violation of Lorentz invariance is found, which disfavour quantum-gravity theories in which the quantum nature of space–time on a very small scale linearly alters the speed of light.
Scale invariant spectrum from variable speed of light metric in a bimetric gravity theory
An approximately scale invariant spectrum generating the seeds of structure formation is derived from a bimetric gravity theory. By requiring that the amplitude of the CMB fluctuations from the model
Outer boundary of the expanding cosmos: Discrete fields and implications for the holographic principle
A physical interpretation of the holographic principle is derived, using a specific non-local hidden-variable theory called the Cordus conjecture. We start by developing an explanation for the
VARIABLE SPEED OF LIGHT THEORIES: A THERMODYNAMIC ANALYSIS OF PLANETARY AND WHITE DWARF PHENOMENA
The thermodynamics of a scalar field interacting with a perfect fluid is studied, and observable consequences of the covariant variable speed of light (VSL) theory proposed by J. Magueijo are
Covariant and locally Lorentz-invariant varying speed of light theories
We propose definitions for covariance and local Lorentz invariance applicable when the speed of light $c$ is allowed to vary. They have the merit of retaining only those aspects of the usual
Geometrodynamics of variable-speed-of-light cosmologies
Variable-speed-of-light (VSL) cosmologies are currently attracting interest as an alternative to inflation. We investigate the fundamental geometrodynamic aspects of VSL cosmologies and provide
Stars and black holes in varying speed of light theories
We investigate spherically symmetric solutions to a recently proposed covariant and locally Lorentz-invariant varying speed of light theory. We find the metrics and variations in $c$ associated with
A look at the abandoned contributions to cosmology of Dirac, Sciama, and Dicke
The separate contributions to cosmology of the above researchers are revisited and a cosmology encompassing their basic ideas is proposed. We study Dirac's article (1938) on the large number
Dynamical system approach to cosmological models with a varying speed of light
Methods of dynamical systems have been used to study homogeneous and isotropic cosmological models with a varying speed of light (VSL). We propose two methods of reduction of dynamics to the form of
