Holiday Physics Card, 2016

Just put them in the mail on December 24...It was a fun year of thinking, whether the idea is right...

Unified Mathematical Field Theory Talk

I gave a 15 minute talk at a local Americal Physical Society Meeting.  Here is the title and...

# Holiday Card, 2013

Dec 24 2013 | comment(s)

Another year, another card inspired by what I am thinking about in physics.

Time is not space,

$m \frac{d^2 R}{d t^2} = - G \frac{m M}{R^2} = - m \nabla \Phi$

# Upgrading Newton's Universal Gravity Law

[note: this blog, as written is insufficient. I will need to provide an action to clarify the nature of the proposal.]

# A Scalar Gravity Coupling Model That Bends Light

Classical gravity is not good enough.  As a first step, one must think about groups since that is the foundation of the Standard Model of physics.

# Rescinded: The Light Matter Proposal: A Big Picture View

I have decided to rescind this proposal.  Stars in a galaxy travel at one velocity, light at the speed c.  There is only one velocity involved in applying the product rule to the definition of a force as a change in momentum.  Note that is not a trivial application of the product rule either.  Newton's second law is invariant under Galilean transformation.  The dm/dt dR/dt is not invariant.

My 20+ year tradition of a physics inspired holiday card continues.  My friends like them, even if they are not understood :-)
