# Tachyon Dynamics - for Neutrinos?

@article{Schwartz2017TachyonD, title={Tachyon Dynamics - for Neutrinos?}, author={Charles Schwartz}, journal={arXiv: General Physics}, year={2017} }

Following earlier studies that provided a consistent theory of kinematics for tachyons (faster-than-light particles) we here embark on a study of tachyon dynamics, both in classical physics and in the quantum theory. Examining a general scattering process we come to recognize that the labels given to "in" and "out" states are not Lorentz invariant for tachyons; and this lets us find a sensible interpretation of negative energy states. For statistical mechanics, as well as for scattering…
