  • The Physics of Negative Mass Tachyons and the Fundamental Electrodynamic Origin of Electron de Broglie Waves Plus a Longitudinal Electrodynamic Neutrino Model (1995) [Updated 6 years ago]
    by Ernst L. Wall   read the paper:

    This web page provides a summary derivation of a very simple tachyon based, unified particle model that produces general agreement with experiment for  most of the known subatomic particles, namely the electron, the proton, the neutron, and the mesons. It also produces the binding energy of the deuteron.  Further, it suggests an electrodynamic origin of the electron's de Broglie waves, and from that, an attendant longitudinal electrodynamic impulse neutrino associated with the   and  transitions.

    In order to get this agreement with experiment, it was necessary to abandon the imaginary mass tachyon and to use, instead, a simple negative mass tachyon.  This should be a minimal problem because after some 45 years since it was introduced, the imaginary mass tachyon has produced no agreement whatsoever with experiment.  It goes without saying that reasonable agreement with experiment is necessary for a physical model to be considered viable, and the imaginary mass tachyon is certainly no exception.

    The data that is used to verify this model is obtained from the standard physics literature, especially the Review of Particle Physics, published by the Particle Data Group of the American Physical Society.  (See Tables 17-1 and 17-2 below.)

    All possible attempts have been made to make this presentation as simple as possible so that even someone with a relatively modest background in physics can verify the model for himself by carrying out some of the calculations with a simple hand calculator.  In fact, the reader is encouraged to try the calculations for himself.  (Physical constants and particle data are provided in Section 17.)
