A new paradox in superluminal signaling
A new causal paradox in superluminal signaling is presented. In contrast to the Tolman paradox with tachyon exchange between two parties, the new paradox appears already in a one-way superluminal
The impossibility of one-way superluminal signaling in the framework of modern Physics
This is a response to the note criticizing my paper “A New Paradox in Superluminal Signaling.” The criticism is based, among other things, on arbitrarily postulated statement about invariance of
Causal Contradiction is absent in Antitelephone
Many physical phenomena exhibit apparent superluminal motion. A light spot is an everyday example: it can move with an arbitrary speed. However, each moment of time it consists of different photons.
Causal hierarchy in modified gravity
We investigate the causal hierarchy in various modified theories of gravity. In general relativity the standard causal hierarchy, (key elements of which are chronology, causality, strong causality,
On Quantum Bayesianism
The lately developed part of Quantum Bayesianism named QBism has been proclaimed by its authors a powerful interpretation of Quantum Physics. This article presents analysis of some aspects of QBism.
Consistency of the standard model effective field theory
We derive bounds on couplings in the standard model effective field theory (SMEFT) as a consequence of causality and the analytic structure of scattering amplitudes. In the SMEFT, there are 64

A little discussed aspect of Heaviside's work in electromagnetics concerned faster-than-light (FTL) charged particles, precursors to the hypothetical tachyon and his discovery that such motion should
Partition Logics, Orthoalgebras and Automata
This work investigates the orthoalgebras of certain non-Boolean models which have a classical realization and investigates the partition logics arising from the investigation of the empirical propositional structure of Moore and Mealy type automata.
A note on a new paradox in superluminal signalling
The Tolman paradox is well known as a base for demonstrating the causality violation by faster-than-light signals within special relativity. It is constructed using a two-way exchange of


The Theory of the Relativity of Motion
THE author of this book takes much for granted. The main source of interest in the principle of relativity is the revolution which it demands in the concepts of space and time. It is not easy for
