A Time for Renaissance in Particle Physics summarises his results and describes his experience in interacting with the physics community. The intended audience is the general public. The author is convinced that he can build a particle theory strictly with 19th-century physics (Newton's laws, Maxwell's equations, and thermodynamics). Einsteinian relativity is considered an aberration (p. 5): "They [the physicists] mistakenly believe the Lorentz Transformation, which is based on a false assumption and is patently false." In the author's theory, accelerated charged particles do not radiate, and all of matter is built through combination of only two fundamental particles, the positron and the electron.

Atoms, Stars and Minds is the linchpin of the Copernican Series. Instead of mindlessly creating elementary particles to explain diverse phenomena, the electron for electricity, the photon for light, the graviton for gravity, ending up in a science based on mindless naming, it looks at reality and asks, what would be the properties of a single elementary particle that could then be used to explain everything that we see? Looking at reality for the properties of that particle, we find that there are only two things that are real in the universe. The first is that things are solid and therefore are held together by something. The second thing is that solid things come apart during combustion, emitting an electromagnetic emission field that travels at the speed of light. Thus, creating an elementary particle with the two properties that reflect these two facts, that the particles have an affinity to come together into solid matter, and once they come together, have a stored energy that makes them want to come apart at the speed of light, produces two properties, affinity propensity and at rest motion, the notion that the elementary particle is at rest when it is moving at the speed of light, two opposing properties in a single particle which can then be used to explain the physical reality that we comprehend. The single particle with its two properties is then used to construct an atom that works and can be used to explain the existence of matter, the periodic table, combustion, the formation of matter into galaxies, stars, solar systems, planets and moons and the cause of the motion of the galaxies and the matter that makes up the solar system, the motion of the planets in their orbits around the sun, the moons around the planets, and most important, their rotation on their axes. Noting that creating an elementary particle with two properties that explain physical reality, however, is not a sufficient check on the accuracy of the particle, Atom, Stars and Minds demands that a particle that explains reality also explain how we, the comprehenders of that reality, can actually comprehend it, how the mind can know that it is a part of the reality that it occupies.Atoms, Stars and Minds throws out the physics and astronomy books that reflect the mindless laws of centuries past created by men who knew nothing of reality and accomplishes precisely what it claims, it synthesizes an elementary particle that comprehends itself.

The recently celebrated discovery of the Higgs boson has captivated the public's imagination with the promise that it can explain the origins of everything in the universe. It's no wonder that the media refers to it grandly as the "God particle." Yet behind closed doors, physicists are admitting that there is much more to this story, and even years of gunning the Large Hadron Collider and herculean number crunching may still not lead to a deep understanding of the laws of nature. In this fascinating and eye-opening account, theoretical physicist Alexander Unzicker and science writer Sheilla Jones offer a polemic. They question whether the large-scale, multinational enterprises actually lead us to the promised land of understanding the universe. The two scientists take us on a tour of contemporary physics and show how a series of highly publicized theories met a dead end. Unzicker and Jones systematically unpack the recent hot theories such as "parallel universes," "string theory," and "inflationary cosmology," and provide an accessible explanation of each. They argue that physics has abandoned its evidence-based roots and shifted to untestable mathematical theories, and they issue a clarion call for the science to return to its experimental foundation.

This text is the first exhaustive treatise on the Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen (EPR) Paradox - the incompatibility, at empirical level, between local realism and the existing quantum theory. The volume collates all the data and thought on the Paradox, from its original formulation in 1935, to some very recent theoretical developments. The authors devote an entire chapter to the EPR Paradox for pairs of neutral kaons. In addition, their text provides 6 different proofs of Bell's Theorem, about 150 references to the literature, and 74 illustrations.

The Olympia conference Frontiers of Fundamental Physics was a gathering of about a hundred scientists who carry on research in conceptually important areas of physical science (they do "fundamental physics").  Most of them were physicists, but also historians and philosphers of science were well represented.  An important fraction of the participants could be considered "heretical" because they disagreed with the validity of one or several fundamental assumptions of modern physics.  Common to all participants was an excellent scientific level coupled with a remarkable intellectula honesty: we are proud to present to the readers this certainly unique book.

Alternative ways of considering fundamental matters should of course be vitally important for the progress of science, unless one wanted to admit that physics at the end of the XXth century has already obtained the final truth, a very unlikely possibility even if one accepted the doubtful idea of the existence of a "final" truth.  The merits of the Olympia conference should therefore not be judged a priori in a positive or in a negative way depending on one's refusal or acceptance, respectively, of basic principles of contemporary sience, but considered after reading the actual new proposals and evidence there presented.  They seem very important to us... - From the Preface.

The Quantum Vector Particle Physics (QVPP) particle structures are so detailed that all related fundamental physical constants are defined by their natural geometry and, as further proof of concepts, derives several previously unknown physical constants. A new electron flux quantum, a quantized Fermi velocity, a proton core precession angle and a neutron and proton undamped magnetic moment. Unification of the strong and electromagnetic force are first presented. It is found that particle binding energy times bond length is a new constant. This (Joule-meter) physical constant serves to derive the Planck constant, and thus physically explains the nature of the electron Cooper pair quantum step resistances, the Josephson junction, the SQUIB and the Peltier theory. ab-initio.

This book explores many of the neglected "what?", "why?", and "how?" questions of quantum and particle physics from the perspective of a particulate ether. I show you ways to visualize the structures and mechanisms of gravity, mass, energy, charge, spin, momentum, forces, wave-particle duality, matter, antimatter, the structures of photons & leptons, and how to understand why energy is conserved, and why phenomena are indeterminate. In Chapter 2, I offer a quantitative defect-pair cluster concept of hadron particles, as a plausible alternative to QCD. Chapter 3 shows how to calculate the mass-deficit of inter-nucleon bonds, while Chapters 4 & 5 show how these paraxial and diagonal bonds produce the complex structures of large, and small nuclei, respectively. Chapter 6 explores particle decay, Chapter 7, particle creation, and Chapter 8, cosmological implications of an ether theory. Finally, in Chapter 9, I discuss my theory's value, limitations, tests, and applications.

Classical spin is described in terms of velocities and acceleration so that knowledge of advanced mathematics is not required. Written in the three-dimensional notation of vector calculus, it can be followed by undergraduate physics students, although some notions of Lagrangian dynamics and group theory are required. It is intended as a general course at a postgraduate level for all-purpose physicists. This book presents a unified approach to classical and quantum mechanics of spinning particles, with symmetry principles as the starting point. A classical concept of an elementary particle is presented. The variational statements to deal with spinning particles are revisited. It is shown that, by explicitly constructing different models, symmetry principles are sufficient for the description of either classical or quantum-mechanical elementary particles. Several spin effects are analyzed.

This article is about the enigmatic situation in modern physics. An alternative to the special theory of relativity is presented, and it is demonstrated that we do not need the concept dilation of time, and also that the reason to existing confusion is due to misunderstandings of stellar aberration and of the experiments done by Michelson and Morley. It is also demonstrated that bound electrons generate POTENTIAL force that becomes real when a second electron is introduced, which demands energy from the ether. This explains why bound electrons do not loose energy, and explains also why 2 light waves in opposite phase can produce zero light.

Work on this theory began incidental to a thesis investigation when the author was a graduate student at Stanford University 40 years ago. It was observed that waves derived from harmonic exponential functions had numerous basic flaws. Over the intervening decades, sporadic efforts continued in attempt to derive a basis for harmonic generation that would avoid the perceived shortcomings. The fmdings culminate in this book. They are profound in that they suggest our traditional interpretation of the natural number system is incomplete. A separate category of enumerating smallest non-divisible entities exists. It distinguishes how quanta or monads must classify as a population. Because fractional values then become disallowed, inter-integer transitions constitute a different class of functional space that is orthogonal to conventional integer values. Scalar natural numbers become vectors. An elegant periodicity in their ordinal sequence brings about a plethora of harmonic wave modes. Derived cyclic phenomena are extremely basic allegedly representing the waves of quantum theory, matter waves, electromagnetic waves, indeed, all waves of physical reality. Mathematically discrete rather than continuous solutions infer various speculations about the physics that could produce such results. The harmonics embed inextricably within the sequence of ordinal integers suggesting resultant periodicities depict many phenomena of Nature like nuclear/electronic structure and DNA type biological entities.

In 1988 NCVA member Duane Whitlock published a book, followed by this treatise, dedicated to making the basic system of atomic structure more understandable. At the same time he has attempted to correct errors that have crept into the current theory of atomic matter. This treatise is clearly more mature than the book, and the author has obviously achieved his goal. At the same time, he has challenged the current thinking of the atomic scientists, because his views are certainly on a collision course with the most erudite of the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory practitioners.

Using skills learned as a cryptographer, and applying the same deductive reasoning required to solve a code or cipher, Whitlock has produced a theory of the basic make-up of atomic matter. Starting with the three primary colors which make up what we see, and showing that each is a bipolar object, it becomes possible to model the prismatic spectrum in terms of six monopoles. Each color has a positive and a negative pole for each of the three long range forces which interact to generate light energy. This makes it easier to understand how the colors black and white are produced, and how color blindness in individuals occurs.

Going forward, the author shows that the principles of structure which organize the system of light are the same principles that organize the system of matter. This simplifies the knowledge of atomic substructure far more precisely and makes it more understandable than anything that is now known or even theorized in the realm of particle physics.

It is not often that such disparate subjects as particle physics and light energy can be discussed without resorting to higher order mathematics. Author Whitlock has accomplished this feat making this treatise comprehensible to most of my readers.

This is an excellent piece of work. Let us hope it reaches the eyes and ears of those physicists in need of better understanding.

This monograph offers a new look at the electron, which was the first elementary particle to be discovered, probably one of the simplest, and possibly one of the most misunderstood. A straightforward classical model is developed that accurately reproduces the main spectroscopic features of the electron, and also its principal quantum aspects. The key to this model is the relativistically spinning sphere, which has been clamoring for recognition for the better part of a century. Although its electrical charge is point-like, the electron itself is Compton-sized, and is composed mainly of non-electromagnetic `mechanical' matter. Due to the rigid nature of the mechanical mass, the electron scatters in a point-like manner at most energies. However, there is a narrow kilovolt energy window where Mott scattering experiments may reveal a finite size. Existing experiments are suggestive but inconclusive. The electron stands at the boundary between classical and quantum physics. This book has been written for researchers in nuclear and atomic physics, and for all scientists interested in the latest developments in fundamental particle physics.

Did the Nobel Prize In Physics in 2013 Make Einstein Turn In His Grave? The Higgs Fake – How Particle Physicists Fooled the Nobel Committee is a merciless critique of the Large Hadron Collider at CERN and of the theoretical model on which the world’s most expensive experiment is based. Unzicker, a German physicist and award-winning science writer, argues that the reaction of the Swedish Academy to last year’s discovery appears to be a result of being beguiled by CERN’s attempts to justify the billions of dollars of public money being spent. The book starts off by claiming that the greatest physicists such as Einstein, Dirac of Schrödinger would have considered the “discovery” of the Higgs particle ridiculous. The reasons, according to the author, are that: “1) the so-called standard model has grown unbelievably complicated, 2) none of the great riddles of physics that have persisted for a century have been solved, 3) history suggests that the current model is a dead end, 4) with their ever-more intricate experimental techniques, particle physicists are fooling themselves with alleged results, 5) scientific convictions in the community are established by blind faith in expert opinions, group-think and parroting, and 6) the data analysis in its complexity cannot be overseen by anybody.” Unzicker gives a historical survey of the field, and concludes that particle physics, as practiced since 1930, is “a futile enterprise in its entirety.” The book is peppered with a series of funny quotes from famous philosophers and scientists. In the last section, “Antidotes,” he specifically attacks “the overstated claims by famous physicists such as Rolf-Dieter Heuer, Michio Kaku, Lisa Randall, Sean Carroll, Brian Cox and Jim Al-Khalili.” At the end, Unzicker lists questions that he would like to be asked to particle physicists at press conferences, hearings and discussions. Unzicker's books have been praised as “well-grounded, sound, [and] informed,” and as “vehement pleading for physics as a natural science, in its best tradition,” but also dismissed by particle physicists as an “incoherent rant” and “time-wasting nonsense.” The new book, written in an even more explicit and provocative tone, is likely to upset the high energy physics community. Praise for previous books of the author: The assertion that “science means, after all, not being a sucker” is well worth taking to heart. – Publishersweekly A broad dismissal of modern theoretical physicists…Unzicker also targets the massive expenditures of funds on high-energy particle accelerators. – Kirkus Reviews Unzicker dares to think outside the mainstream. A refreshing and provoking book... – Prof. Hans Volker Klapdor-Kleingrothaus, University of Heidelberg Timely needed revision of contemporary physics´ idiocies. – Prof. Antonio Ruiz de Elvira, University of Alcalá de Henares A passionate and profound search for scientific truth. Unzicker's questions to particle physicists at CERN are justified. PD Peter Thirolf, nuclear physicist at Munich University. A major contribution to physics... Unzicker is pointing out that the emperor is naked... The establishment scientists will curse and moan. – Edwin E Klingman, author, former NASA Research Physicist

Every hundred years or so, a unique groundbreaking Copernican class volume arises unexpectedly. From ashes long thought cold of Einstein's static universe model, for the first time technically viable alternative interpretations to all pillars of Big Bang cosmology are presented in the context of a profound new continuous-state cosmological paradigm able to elucidate many contemporary problems plaguing the standard model of particle physics. The cosmology provides an alternative derivation of the string/brane tension formalism derived from large-scale additional dimensions that leads to a putative unique background-independent string vacuum without requiring the Higgs mechanism or SUSY superpartners. Breakthroughs presented, arising from the broad spectrum of explanatory power, include an empirical protocol for violation of the quantum uncertainty principle that provides a viable model for the implementation of universal bulk quantum computing. Other developments naturally arising from utility of the new regime include a design for constructing de Broglie-type matter-wave projectile defense shields with far-reaching consequences.

The New Quantum Vector Particle Physics introduces the reader to the final particle physics theory with models that find direct experimental proof in the fundamental physical constants. All equations are fully developed and calculated numerically as proof of concepts. The proton and neutron structures allow calculating the binding energy (mass defect) of nuclei and show which isotopes are stable or unstable against decay. A method to calculate the binding energy between the electron and proton in hydrogen is given. Four new fundamental constants are suggested, and a new theory for superconductivity is indicated.

This book is centered on the most pressing unsolved problem in elementary particle physics: the mass generation of particles. It contains physics that is not included in the Standard Model as it is now formulated, while at the same time being in conformity with the major results of the Standard Model, i.e. isotopic spins and interactions. It differs from the Standard Model in the treatment of masses and pseudoscalar mesons, and in the role assigned to the coupling constant . Presented in a careful and phenomenological way, the material can easily be followed by all physicists, both experimental and theoretical, and also by interested workers in other fields. The author's website 70mev.org gives additional information about the applications of the constant (alpha) in particle physics.

This volume contains the proceedings of a symposium held in honour of Jean-Pierre Vigier in Toronto, Canada, in August 1995. It encompasses many areas in which he has been active over the years, such as stochastic interpretations of quantum mechanics, particle physics and electromagnetic theory. The papers have been loosely ordered in the following categories: ideas about the nature of light and photons; electrodynamics; the formulation and interpretation of quantum mechanics; and aspects of relativity theory. Some of the papers presented deal with alternate interpretations of quantum phenomena in the tradition of Vigier, Bohm et al. The current experimental situation allows for the first time for individual quantum events to be studied, and this opens possibilities for challenges to the orthodox interpretation to be realised. Audience: This book will be of interest to graduate level students and researchers whose work involves quantum mechanics, electromagnetic theory, optics and optoelectronics.

This book on the history of science is a fascinating, informative account of man's effort to find an all-encompassing, unified theory that would explain the nature of the universe.  From the time of the Greek philosophers the subject of continuous versus discrete theories of matter have been vehemently debated.

In the intervening centuries our knowledge of the universe has increased many times over and although we have solved many mysteries, we have uncovered others.  THE SEARCH FOR A THEORY OF MATTER explores in an enlightening, readable way how first one theory, then another was proposed, how some have reappeared after being discarded, how attempts have been made to fuse apparently contradictory theories into a unified and cogent explanation.

Ranging from the physics of ancient Greece through Galileo's studies of freely falling bodies, Newton's laws of motion and gravitation, Faraday's field concept, the theories of Maxwell and Boltzmann, the experiment of Michelson and Morley, to Einstein's theory of relativity, Bohr's model of the atom and the modern quantum theory, Dr. Sachs examines and illuminates man's attempts to gather the laws that govern the motion of objects, electricity, magnetism, optics, gravitation and atomic and elementary particle physics into a unified theory of matter.

The book is suitable for senior high school students, college freshman and all other readers interested in discussions of the important concepts and conflicts of ideas that have appeared throughout the history of physics, highlighting the developments in the twentieth century. - Inside cover
