The Results of Recent Neutrino Velocity Experiments Disprove Special Relativity Theory

  title={The Results of Recent Neutrino Velocity Experiments Disprove Special Relativity Theory},
  author={Ramzi Suleiman},
The time dilation predicted by Special Relativity Theory is completely determined by the Lorentz Factor. The Invariance Principle, expressed in γ, puts two categorical constraints on the velocity β: 1. β< 1, and 2. γ(β) = γ(-β). The findings of recent neutrino velocity experiments, which tested the first constraint, reveal that the velocity of neutrinos is not statistically different from the velocity of light. Surprisingly, in all these experiments, the second constraint, γ(β) = γ(-β), which…

On Reconciling Quantum Theory and Relativity

One of the most important open questions in physics is the possibility of reconciliation, and perhaps unification, between quantum theory and relativity theory. Here I show that a relativity theory

Complete Relativity Predicts the Recently Reported Mass of the Higgs Boson

In two recent articles I have shown that a relativity theory without the Lorentz Invariance Principle, termed Complete Relativity, conforms to quantum mechanics and cosmology. Here I demonstrate that

Relativity without Lorentz Invariance Solves the Twin Paradox

The Twin Paradox is one of the most fascinating paradoxes in physics. In Special Relativity, the paradox arises due to the nonexistence of a preferred frame of reference, resulting in both twins



A Complete Relativity Theory Predicts with Precision the Neutrino Velocities Reported by OPERA, MINOS, and ICARUS

The present paper utilizes the recently proposed Complete Relativity Theory (CR) for the prediction of neutrino velocity in a prototypical neutrino velocity experiment. The derived expression for the

Experimental Basis for Special Relativity in the Photon Sector

A search of the literature reveals that none of the five new optical effects predicted by the special theory of relativity have ever been observed to occur in nature. In particular, the speed of

Quantum gravity corrections to neutrino propagation

Neutrino bursts accompanying gamma ray bursts that have traveled cosmological distances L are considered and a dependence L(-1)(os) approximately &pmacr;(2)l(P) is found for a two-flavor neutrino oscillation length.

Test of relativistic time dilation with fast optical atomic clocks at different velocities

Time dilation is one of the most fascinating aspects of special relativity as it abolishes the notion of absolute time. It was first observed experimentally by Ives and Stilwell in 1938 using the

Lorentz invariance and quantum gravity: an additional fine-tuning problem?

It is explained that combining known elementary particle interactions with a Planck-scale preferred frame gives rise to Lorentz violation at the percent level, some 20 orders of magnitude higher than earlier estimates, unless the bare parameters of the theory are unnaturally strongly fine tuned.

Spontaneous Lorentz breaking at high energies

Theories that spontaneously break Lorentz invariance also violate diffeomorphism symmetries, implying the existence of extra degrees of freedom and modifications of gravity. In the minimal model

Quantum gravity without Lorentz invariance

There has been a significant surge of interest in Hoyrava's model for 3+1 dimensional quantum gravity, this model being based on anisotropic scaling at a z = 3 Lifshitz point. Hoyrava's model, and

Search for Quantum Gravity

A satisfactory theory of quantum gravity maynecessitate a drastic modification of our perception ofspace-time, by giving it a foamy structure at distancescomparable to the Planck length. It is argued
