  • The Holor Representation of Chemistry (2009) [Updated 7 years ago]

    Classical Physics can be represented with vectors in a 3-dimensional space. Chemistry, on the other hand, is described in terms of holors with 116 merates. Chemical reactions are represented by the addition of suitable holors in this 116 dimensional space.

    Since the time of Newton and even before there have been scientists who discussed and possibly utilized a family of chemical reactions in which two or more chemicals could combine to form a different element from any of the original chemicals. Such a chemical reaction is called a transmutation. The holor representation of transmutations is also suggested.


  • The Stability of a Spinning Charged Ring (2007) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The paper develops and analyses the stability conditions for a spinning charged ring according to the Maxwellian Electromagnetic Theory and according to the New Gaussian Electromagnetic Theory. Conclusions are drawn as to whether a charge cluster can be modeled by a spinning charged ring according to either electromagnetic theory for particles with any ratio of mass to electric charge.


  • The 21st Century Form of Newton?s Gravitational Equation (2007) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The paper studies the modifications of Newton?s law of gravity proposed by Andre Assis and Jaroslav Klyushin in order to determine whether either of these can predict the seasonal Monti effect. Both of these equations add terms which are functions of velocity and acceleration to the original function of position proposed by Newton.


  • Developing Low-Cost Vehicle Location And Web Mapping Using Nextel GPS Cell Phones And Google? Maps (2007) [Updated 1 year ago]

    Research and demonstration projects sponsored by the U.S. Department of Transportation explored low cost and higher reliability alternatives to Global Positioning System (GPS) based Automatic Vehicle Location (AVL) systems. As a result, the GeoGraphics Laboratory has developed and tested AVL software for low-cost mobile phones and web mapping which allows for the collection, transmission, storage and mass consumption of location data (web-based mapping). This has lead to research in the following areas: 1) Development of j2me software for military specification Sprint-Nextel? mobile phones to allow the collection of Location data at a refresh rate of 2-5 seconds; 2) Creation of protocols and software on a mobile phone and on a web server for the efficient and timely (within 2 seconds of collection) transmission of location data to a database using, TCP sockets, and lightweight-webservices; 3) Creation of database structures and software development using Google's AJAX mapping tools to display at a glance bus location, bus routes, bus stops and bus stop information, "map within a map" and super high definition photos of the Bus stop; 4) Development of a user interface to allow bus drivers to easily update which vehicle and route they are running, and when they are active.


  • The Spinning Charged Ring (2006) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The simplest model of a charge cluster is a spinning charged ring. The gravitational and electromagnetic forces must add to zero if charge clusters are to be in dynamic equilibrium. The paper investigates whether spinning rings of charge can be in dynamic equilibrium according to classical electromagnetic theory and according to the New Gaussian electromagnetic theory.


  • Developments on the Postulate on the Velocity of Light in the Twentieth Century (2005) [Updated 7 years ago]

    Galileo was the first person to attempt to measure the velocity of light. Einstein was remarkable in 1905 in recognizing that a postulate on the velocity of light was necessary. But only two years later in 1907 he found it necessary to revise his original postulate. The very next year in 1908 Ritz proposed a radically different postulate. It was nearly half a century later that the universal time postulate was first proposed by Moon and Spencer in 1956. It was not until 1990 that the general formulation of the universal time postulate was developed by Moon, Spencer and Moon. Today we know that electromagnetic signals from moving sources can be synchronized. The paper reviews the experimental evidence for accepting the universal time postulate.


  • The Gravitational Explanation of the Seasonal Variations in Chemical Processes Observed by Roberto and Emilio Monti (2005) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The remarkable Monti experiments show that some chemical reactions occur in spring and fall but not in summer or winter. In this paper it is proposed that Newton?s law of gravity be modified by the addition of a force term that varies with the seasons. Investigation of the equations of planetary motion shows that certain functions of the derivative of the radius with respect to angle have such a seasonal variation. The proposed modification of Newton?s law of gravity is compared with the modifications previously proposed by Assis and by Kluyshin.


  • The Spinning Charged Ring (2005) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The gravitational and electromagnetic forces on the spinning charged ring are analyzed in the following two ways:

    1. the Classical Electromagnetic Theory and Newton?s Gravitational Equation
    2. the New Gaussian Electromagnetic Theory and the newly modified gravitational equation proposed in the previous paper

    Conclusions are drawn on the possible existence of a spinning charged ring, from the point of view of classical physics, and from the point of view of the most recent formulation of gravitational and electromagnetic theory.


  • Comparison of the Classical Electromagnetic Theory with the New Gaussian Electromagnetic Theory (2004) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The paper gives a comparative derivation of the fundamental equations of electromagnetic theory in the two formulations that have been investigated most extensively:  the Classical Electromagnetic Theory and the New Gaussian Electromagnetic Theory.  The principal differences are that the Classical Theory is based on Einstein's postulate on the velocity of light and on the absolute velocity of moving charges while the New Gaussian Theory is based on the universal time postulate on the velocity of light and on the relative velocity of moving charges.  The paper outlines the derivation of the expressions for the force between moving charges and the divergence and curl of the electromagnetic field vectors in both systems.  Since we now have five experimental proofs of the validity of the New Gaussian Electrodynamics and the failure of Classical Electrodynamics, it is time to seriously study the beautiful system that explains our actual phsyical experiments.


  • Comparative Analysis of the Doppler Shift Based on Two Postulates on the Velocity of Light (2004) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The paper presents a mathematical derivation of the Doppler shift based on two postulates on the velocity of light:  Postulate I* proposed by Einstein in 1907, and Postulate III* proposed by Moon, Spencer and Moon in 1990.

  • The Electrodynamic Interpretation of Mass Variation (1999) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The paper considers the special case of a charged particle moving in a uniform electric field. Three formulations of the problem are compared, utilizing the Weber equation. and the new Gaussian equation. The critical difference is whether the force is defined in terms of absolute velocity (classical) or relative velocity (Weber and new Gaussian). The actual trajectory of the charged particle can be explained in two ways: if the force is a function of absolute velocity it is necessary to introduce a variable mass. However. if the force is a function of relative velocity the correct trajectory is predicted with a constant mass. Consequently. both the Weber Equation and the new Gaussian equation explain the experimental trajectories of charged particles in a uniform electric field with a mass which does not vary.


  • High Velocity Applications of Electrodynamics (1999) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The problem of the trajectory of a charged particle in both electric and magnetic fields is formulated in three ways: utilizing the Weber equation for the force between moving charges. the classical equation and the new Gaussian equation: In the analysis. in terms of the classic equation, it is necessary to assume that mass varies with velocity. Since both the Weber equation and the new Gaussian equation are expressed in terms of relative velocity, it is possible to retain the simpler concept of constant mass. Applications will be made to the key high velocity configurations. It is not possible to discriminate between the three theories studies on the basis of this set of applications. since the classical theory can be made to conform with real measurements by introducing variation of mass with velocity.


  • The Interpretation of the Velocity of Light (1999) [Updated 7 years ago]

    Previous papers have shown that the only postulate on the velocity of light that is consistent with all of the experiments hitherto analyzed is the universal time postulate on the velocity of light which was proposed by Moon and Spencer in 1956. This paper will concentrate on the interpretation of the universal time postulate. Light travels outward from its source in a spherical wave whose radius always increases at velocity c. as suggested by Huygens. The center of this sphere is always at the source. If the source travels at a constant velocity. this reduces to the corpuscular hypothesis of Newton. But if the source is accelerated. the result is slightly different than was suggested by either Huygens or Newton. It is this small difference which permits the synchronization of all moving clocks and makes possible the existence of clocks which tell universal time. Such clocks are now commercially available, controlled by the satellite system.

  • Electromagnetic Fields from Three Viewpoints (1998) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The field of a static charge distribution will be examined from three viewpoints: the Weber equation, the classical equation on which special relativity is based and the new Gaussian equation. It will be shown that with the Weber equation the force is a function of both velocity and acceleration and with the new Gaussian equation the force in a uniform electric field depends on the velocity of the test charge. But with the classical equation the force is independent of the velocity of the test charge. Experimental trajectories require mass to vary with velocity if the classical equation is postulated as in special relativity. But these trajectories may be consistent with a constant mass in both the Weber and the new Gaussian formulations. The field of a stationary current element is also examined from the three viewpoints. Extra terms occur with the Weber and the New Gaussian equations that will be significant in the analysis of high-speed charges moving in magnetic fields. Finally the force between stationary current elements is analyzed. According to classical theory the force is always perpendicular to the current element on which it acts. Tangential forces such as have been observed in many experiments can occur with both the Weber and the New Gaussian Equations.

  • Visualizing the Postulates of the Velocity of Light (1998) [Updated 7 years ago]

    An elementary geometric construction enables one to clearly visualize and fully comprehend the differences between three postulates on the velocity of light -- those of Einstein (1905, 1907), Ritz (1908), and Moon and Spencer (1956, 1989). The universal time postulate of Moon and Spencer is the only one of these three in full agreement with a11 experiments hitherto analyzed. It displays an essential simplicity, and involves a simple method of synchronizing the clocks of two moving observers that is not possible in general for the Ritz and Einstein postulates.


  • The Motion of an Electric Charge in a Uniform Electric Field: Three Viewpoints (1998) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The force on a charge moving in a uniform electric field is calculated in three ways: from the Weber equation proposed in 1846: from the classtcal equation generally taught today; and from the new Gaussian equation recently proposed and published by Moon, Spencer, Mirchandaney, Shama and Mann (Proceedings of the International Conference on Problems of Space, Time, Gravitation (Sept. 1996. St. Petersburg, Russia: pp. 188-195)). The classical field 150 a constant, but the Weber and new Gaussian fields are different functions of velocity.


  • The Electrodynamic Formulation of the Hering Furnace and Overhead Welding: Three Viewpoints (1998) [Updated 1 year ago]

    The Hering furnace and overhead welding have previously been analyzed from the po1ot of view of the currently taught classical equation and the new Gaussian equation of Moon, Spencer, et al for the force between moving charges. This paper extends this analysis to the Weber equation of 1846. Conclusions are drawn on the validity of each of these three electrodynamic equations.


  • The Reality of Universal Time (1998) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The paper proves the mathematical necessity for a new postulate on the velocity of light, if universal time is a reality. This is the universal time postulate on the velocity of light proposed by Moon and Spencer in 1956. Moon, Spencer and Moon developed the general form of this postulate in 1989. The paper then summarizes the recent proofs of the validity of the universal time postulate: stellar aberration based on the astronomical observations of Bradley in 1728 and the current establishment of universal time by the GPS satellite system. Both prove that Einstein's postulate on the velocity of light must be abandoned.


  • Weber's Equation and the Scalar Potential (1997) [Updated 1 year ago]

    Weber's equation for the force between moving charges was published in 1846. In 1848 Weber published a second paper in which he claimed to have derived his equation for the force between moving charges from the gradient of a scalar potential which was a function of position and relative velocity. I n this paper we prove that Weber's mathematical derivation does not employ the correct tensor definition of the gradient. Weber's formulation for the derivation of his force equation from his scalar potential is flawed from the point of view of modern holor theory. However, this does not invalidate Weber's force equation. It may be useful even though it cannot be derived from the gradient of Weber's scalar potential.


  • The Hering Experiment from Three Viewpoints (1997) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The paper presents an experimental verification of the validity of the new Gaussian equation for the force between moving charges. Equations for the force between current elements which are derived from the Weber equation, the classical equation and the new Gaussian equation are presented. These equations are applied to the Hering furnace. The operation of the Hering furnace is consistent with the new Gaussian equation for the force between moving charges. There are difficulties with the Weber equation and the classical equation predicts that a furnace which has been used In industry for nearly a century cannot possibly operate.


  • Overhead Welding from Three Viewpoints (1997) [Updated 7 years ago]

    The paper presents a second experimental verification of the validity of the new Gaussian equation for the force between moving charges. Three equations for the force between moving charges are applied to the problem of overhead welding: the Weber equation, the classical equation and the new Gaussian equation. From the new Gaussian equation, it is found that large electromagnetic forces are present which hold the weld bead in place. According to the classical equation, these forces do not exist and overhead welding is impossible. According to the Weber equation, the weld bead is repelled by a large electromagnetic force!


  • The Transformation Equations of the Electromagnetic Field Vectors (1997) [Updated 7 years ago]

  • Synchronization of Clocks (1997) [Updated 1 year ago]

    How do you set your watch? If observers A and B are not in relative motion, there is no problem. But if A and B are moving relative to each other, they must communicate by light signals. The paper shows how the universal time postulate on the velocity of light, first suggested by Moon and Spencer in 1956, was derived by considering the process of synchronization of clocks. In this paper, the motion of A and B is confirmed to a straight line. The 3-dimensional generalization was obtained by Moon, Spencer and Moon in 1989.


  • The Transformation Equations of the Electromagnetic Field Vectors (1997) [Updated 7 years ago]

    It is generally believed that the fundamental equations of physics can be expressed in terms of tensors. The paper considers the electromagnetic field vectors and shows that they must be represented by holors rather than tensors except in very special cases.


  • Stellar Aberration and the Postulates on the Velocity of Light (1996) [Updated 7 years ago]
    by Domina Eberle Spencer, Uma Y. Shama   read the paper:

    This paper presents a simple proof of the validity of the universal time postulate on the velocity of light based on the experimental data on stellar aberration observed by Bradley in 1728. It is demonstrated that Einstein's postulate on the velocity of light predicts stellar aberration correctly in coordinate systems in which the star is stationary but fails to predict the phenomenon at all in the earthbound coordinate system in which it is observed.

  • A New Interpretation of the Hafele-Keating Experiment (1996) [Updated 1 year ago]

    It is generally considered that one of the most crucial experiments in support of the special theory of relativity is the Hafele-Keating experiment. Four atomic clocks were flown around the world and then compared with the master clock in Washington, D.C. However, the original paper did not publish the raw data. Dr. Keating has been kind enough to permit us to analyze the raw data. We have found that an entirely different interpretation of the experimental data, which supports the universal time postulate on the velocity of light, is perfectly consistent with the experimental data obtained by Hafele and Keating. Thus, one of the essential experimental supports of the relativistic theory of time dilation is shown to be invalid. Instead, the original data provide additional strongsupport of the reality of the universal time postulate on the velocity of light.

  • The Force Between Current Elements (1994) [Updated 7 years ago]

    Amp?re proposed an equation for the force between current elements in 1823. Gauss and Weber suggested equations for the force between moving charges which are derived from scalar potentials and are consistent with the Amp?re equation. Grassmann derived an alternative equation for the force between current elements in 1845, which is often called the Lorentz force. This paper derives a time-variant generalization of this equation. It also proposes a new equation for the force between current elements that satisfies the basic criteria suggested by Gauss and Hertz.


  • The Electrodynamics of Gauss, Neumann, and Hertz (1994) [Updated 1 year ago]

    This paper is based on the fundamental criteria for the electrodynamic equation suggested by Gauss. It considers the definitions of the electric field proposed by Neumann and by Hertz. The classical formulation utilizing Neumann's definition and Einstein's postulate on the velocity of light does not satisfy the criteria suggested by Gauss. A new electrodynamic equation is proposed, utilizing the Hertzian definition of the electric field and the universal time postulate on the velocity of light, which does satisfy the Gaussian criteria.
