Can Particles Exist as Standing Waves in a Superdense Aether?
Keywords: Particles,Standing Waves, Ether
The proposed aether is based on the existence in all space of an exceeding dense gas that strictly obeys Newton's laws. Its equations are as used in the theory of sound. The standing-wave amplitude drops off approximately as 1/rl.5 the solution will be discussed; it is my own. The mass of the particle is the displaced mass of the aethers; so dualism is naturally present. Besides reducing the local aether density, the standing waves emit second-harmonic waves whose amplitude is proportional to the displaced mass and so create gravitational-like forces between particles having the same mass. Special relativity is obeyed, except the velocity relative to the aether is observable. Spin-O particles appear in clusters of three that are phased 120 degrees apart and so can be said to have colors red, green, and blue. The solution of spin-1/2 particles is discussed. The need to maintain space-time phase lock at the centers of particles leads to quantum mechanics. Since the energy density drops off exponentially, the concept of renormalization needs to be utilized (My intuitive understanding of this concept is poor). More complete theoretical verification of the proposed concepts could lead to a better understanding of free energy in the vacuum.
