As we showed in a preceding arXiv:gr-qc Einstein equations, conveniently written, provide the more orthodox and simple description of cosmological models with a time dependent speed of light $c$. We derive here the concomitant dependence of the electric permittivity $\epsilon$, the magnetic permeability $\mu$, the unit of charge $e$, Plank's constant $h$, under the assumption of the constancy of the fine structure constant $\alpha$, and the masses of elementary particles $m$. As a consequence…

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

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

The fundamental constants and their variation: observational and theoretical status
This article describes the various experimental bounds on the variation of the fundamental constants of nature. After a discussion of the role of fundamental constants, their definition and link with
Frames of Reference and Some of its Applications
TLDR
A low-level 3-dimensional geometry with constant curvature and a corresponding coordinated proper-time scale is uncovered.
Further evidence for a variable fine-structure constant from Keck/HIRES QSO absorption spectra
We have previously presented evidence for a varying fine-str ucture constant, α, in two independent samples of Keck/HIRES QSO absorption spectra. Here we present a detailed manymultiplet analysis of

We propose a distinguished set of positive and negative energy modes of the Klein-Gordon equation as a time-independent definition of the vacuum state of a quantized scalar field.
