Six flavor quark matter
A bstractMacroscopic nuggets of quark matter were proposed several decades ago as a candidate for dark matter. The formation of these objects in the early universe requires the QCD phase transition
Cosmological scenarios from multiquintessence
In this work we derive and analyse cosmological scenarios coming from multi-component scalar field models. We consider a direct sum of a sine-Gordon with a Z2 model, and also a combination of those
Manifestation and Origin of the Isotope Effect
This article reviews from one point of view the current status of the manifestations of isotope effect in a nuclear, atomic and molecular as well as solid state physics. Although these manifestations
Origin of the Blueshift in Signals from Pioneer 10 and 11
A previous paper [1] introduced a quantum-mechanical theory of gravity, and showed it agrees with the standard experimental tests of general relativity. Doppler tracking signals returned by t he
AdS/QCD approach to the scale-invariant extension of the standard model with a strongly interacting hidden sector
A bstractIn this paper, we revisit a scale-invariant extension of the standard model (SM) with a strongly interacting hidden sector within AdS/QCD approach. Using the AdS/QCD, we reduce the number of
Anticipating a new Golden Age
The standard model of fundamental interactions is remarkably successful, but it leaves an unfinished agenda. Several major questions seem ripe for exploration in the near future. I anticipate that
A Constructive Critique of the Three Standard Systems
This is a broad and in part unconventional review of our current knowledge of fundamental physics, emphasizing the potential for advances the LHC will open up.
How Electrons consist of Electromagnetic Waves
In this paper we investigate the connection between electrons and electromagnetic waves. We then propose how electrons could consist of electromagnetic waves. From this proposal we explain why
Mass of an Electromagnetic Wave
In this paper we investigate whether an electromagnetic wave can have mass, whilst also still having a maximum velocity equal to the speed of light. We find that their mass is inversely proportional
