Einstein, Podolsky, and Rosen Paradox in Atomic, Nuclear, and Particle Physics by Alexander Afriat, Prof. Franco Selleri KeyWords: einstein Pages: 268 Publisher: Springer Year: 1998 ISBN: 0306458934 ISBN: 9780306458934 ISBN: B000OSA3SM Buy it now Description 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.

Quantum Paradoxes and Physical Reality by Prof. Franco Selleri, Prof. Alwyn Van der Merwe Pages: 340 Publisher: Springer Year: 1990 ISBN: 0792302532 ISBN: 9780792302537 Buy it now Description This book is an expanded version of Selleri's Die Debatte um die Quantentheorie, and is devoted to the most foundamental themes of Quantum Physics: acausality, waveparticle duality, EinsteinPodolskyRosen (EPR) paradox, and so on. Several paradoxes have plagued quantum physics since its beginnings, the easiest of which to solve are the paradoxes of completeness (Schrodinger's cat, Wigner's friend, de Broglie's box, etc.). At a deeper level is the paradox of waveparticle duality whose solution probaily requires the Einsteinde Broglie picture of atomic systems. The most difficult of them all is the EPR paradox (incompatibility between local realism and quantum theory). The book shows that experimental research can, in principle, solve paradoxes such as EPR and waveparticle duality but the experiments performed on Belltype inequalities have instead left the conceptual situation fundamentally unmodified. Rewiews of "Quantum Paradoxes and Physical Reality": "This volume is major contribution to the literature on the foundations of quantum physics. It should be an important reference book in the field for years to come."  Alastair I.M. Rae, Found. Physics, Vol. 23, p. 133 (1993). "I strongly recommend the reading of Selleri's book, not only because of its technical interest, but also for seeing how the inevitable perplexities of any other quantum theorist are viewed by a declared partisan of realism." (Transl. from French)  Olivier Costa de Beauregard, Ann. Fond. L. de Broglie, Vol. 15, p. 239 (1991). "Professor Selleri is almost uniquely qualified  a true skeptic who nonetheless has a deep grasp of the 'Copenhagen interpretation'. If you add to this an unflagging intellectual honesty and a basic sense of fairness, you can appreciate what a special document this book is."  Daniel Greenberger, Physics Essays, Vol. 4, p. 436 (1991). "Selleri has written with rigor and clarity a superb book which is understandable and informative for every one interested in quantum mechanics."  Max Jammer, Found. Physics, vol. 21, p. 1335 (1991). "Selleri has also achieved a part of what Einstein had in mind: to find a possibility to conceive causal and real processes as the foundation of statistical quantum theory without falling into logical contradictions." (Transl. from German)  Erwin Kerkenberg, Jour. Gen. Phil. Science, Vol. 22, p. 177 (1991). "On reading these pages one is overcome with the impression that the 'Copenhagen interpretation' is not the only possible one. I do belive that this book makes us understand the essence of quantum mechanics, an understanding that is never available in regular textbooks of physics." (Trasl. from Japanese)  Mikio Namiki, Butsuri, Vol. 53, p. 795 (1991). "In this work Professor Franco Selleri of the University of Bari turns in a remarkable virtuoso performance in which historically and philosophically sensitive discussion accompanies a careful and thorough presentation of the requisite technical details."  James Cushing, Am. Jour. of Physics, Vol. 58, p. 797 (1990). "The work described here is a fascinating story, documented with meticulous details, of human inquiry into some of the most intriguing fundamental questions of science."  Dipankar Home, 2001, Vol. Nov. 1990, p. 37.

Frontiers of Fundamental Physics: Proceedings of an International Conference held September 2730, 1993, in Olympia, Greece by Prof. Michele Barone (Editor), Prof. Franco Selleri (Editor) Pages: 620 Publisher: Plenum Press Year: 1994 ISBN: 0306448254 ISBN: 9780306448256 Buy it now Description 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. Contents: ASTROPHYSICS: ANOMOLOUSREDSHIFTS

Controlled Nucleosynthesis: Breakthroughs in Experiment and Theory by Dr. Stanislav V. Adamenko (Editor), Prof. Franco Selleri (Editor), Prof. Alwyn Van der Merwe (Editor) Pages: 780 Publisher: Springer Year: 2007 ISBN: 140205873X ISBN: 9781402058738 Buy it now Description This book ushers in a new era of experimental and theoretical investigations into collective processes, structure formation, and selforganization of nuclear matter. It reports the results of experiments wherein for the first time the nuclei constituting our world (those displayed in Mendeleev's table as well as the superheavy ones) have been artificially created. Pioneering breakthroughs are described, achieved at the ?Proton21? Laboratory, Kiev, Ukraine, in a variety of new physical and technological directions. A detailed description of the main experiments, their analyses, and the interpretation of copious experimental data are given, along with the methodology governing key measurements and the processing algorithms of the data that empirically confirm the occurrence of macroscopic selforganizing processes leading to the nuclear transformations of various materials. The basic concepts underlying the initiation of selfsustaining collective processes that result in the formation of nuclear structures are also examined. How to realize nucleosynthesis of stable nuclei in the laboratory? Why are metallic meteorites of iron or nickeliron? Could the iron be nuclear fuel and could an iron star blow up as a supernova? And what could be the energy source of such an explosion? Is it possible to obtain nuclear energy from any terrestrial substance without producing radioactivity? Do superheavy (Migdal's) nuclei exist, and is it possible to synthesize them in the laboratory? What physical mechanisms could one use to control nuclear transformations and particularly the sign of the overall energy balance involved? Answers to these and other intriguing questions are to be found in this book.

Weak Relativity: The Physics of Space and Time Without Paradoxes by Prof. Franco Selleri KeyWords: Relativity Pages: 174 Publisher: Franco Selleri Year: 2009 Read it now online Description This book reveals the results obtained in recent years by the author in relativistic physics. The recently increased conviction about the conventional definition of relativistic simultaneity has opened the doors to new ideas, in spite of the fact that research has shown that simultaneity in the physical reality exists and is not at all conventional. If the coefficient of the space variable x in the Lorentz, or other transformation of time (we call it e_{1}) had a convetional nature it should be possible to modify it without touching the empirical predictions of the theory. Given that Einstein's principle of relativity leads necessarily to the Lorentz transformations, and thus also to a fixed value of e_{1}, such a modification would imply a reformation of the relativistic idea itself. With respect to the idealized initial picture, the concrete development of research has produced some exciting novelties. Several phenomena, in particular those taking place on accelerating systems (Sagnac effect, and all that) converge in a strong indication of the value e_{1} = 0. This implies absolute simultaneity and a new type of space and time transformations, which we call "inertial". We give six proofs of absolute simultaneity, which are essentially independent of one another. In order to make their identification easy, the six chapters in which these proofs are given have equality e_{1} = 0 already in the title. The cosmological consequences of the new structure of space and time go against the big bang model. After our results relativism, although weakened, is not dead, but survives in milder forms.

Abstract: The description of natural phenomena by observers in motion is a problem that many consider solved once and for all by the Lorentz transformations of the Theory of Special Relativity (TSR), though it was actually was left open. Consequences of my alternative transformations of the space and time variables are: (i) an explanation of the empirical data better than provided by the TSR; (ii) the elimination of those features of the TSR which give rise to paradoxes. This is obtained thanks to the recovery of a preferred inertial frame in which the Lorentz ether is at rest. In the present paper I expound the basic ideas of the research, leaving aside mathematical detail.

Abstract: The description of natural phenomena by observers in motion is a problem that many consider solved by Lorentz transformations, but that actually was left open. Consequences of my alternative "inertial" transforamtions are: (i) an explanation of the empirical data better than provided by the Theory of Special Relativity (TSR); (ii) the elimination of those features of the TSR giving rise to paradoxes thanks to the recovery of a privileged inertial frame in which the Lorentz ether is at rest. The example of the "clock paradox" is discussed and a complete resolution is obtained by giving an exhaustive unified description of all possible situations. Velocity (and nothing else) is thus seen to be responsible for the differential retardation effect.

Abstract: The experimental evidence for electromagnetic signals propagating with superluminal group velocity is recalled. Transformations of space and time depending on a synchronization parameter, e1, indicate the existence of a privileged inertial system. The Lorentz transformations are obtained for a particular e1 different from zero. No standard experiment on relativity depends on e1, but if accelerations are considered only e1 = 0 remains possible. The causal paradox generated by superluminal signals in the theory of relativity does not exist in the theory with e1 = 0. The irrelevance of superluminal signals for the Einstein, Podolsky and Rosen paradox is pointed out.

Abstract: In the last ten years I have been working at the description of natural phenomena by observers in motion. It is a problem that many consider solved once for all by the Lorentz transformations of the Theory of Special Relativity (TSR in the following), but that actually was left open for reasons I will say. The result of this research is twofold: an explanation of the empirical data better than provided by the TSR, and the elimination of those features of the TSR which give rise to paradoxes; all this is obtained thanks to the liberation of time from the enslavement to space forced upon it in Minkowski space. The story is told in detail in a recent book [FS]. In the present paper I expound the basic ideas of the research leaving aside its mathematical parts.

Abstract: Transformations of space and time between inertial systems are set up by starting from two empirically based assumptions: (1) The twoway velocity of light is the same in all inertial systems; (2) Clock retardation takes place with the usual velocitydependent factor when clocks move with respect to an isotropic reference frame. The transformations thus obtained contain a free parameter e_{1}, the coefficient of x in the transformation of time. The Theory of Special Relativity is recovered for a particular choice of e_{1}. Different values of e_{1} correspond to different theories of space and time, which are to a large extent empirically equivalent. We show that Michelson type experiments, aberration, occultation of Jupiter's satellites, and radar ranging of planets are insensitive to the choice of e_{1}. Several other experiments lead to the same conclusion. An exception is discussed in Part II.

Abstract: A physical quantity p exists for which the theory of special relativity (TSR) predicts p = 1 relative to all inertial frames. Under extremely general conditions we prove that p = (c +v)/(c  v) for all rotating disks having the same peripheral velocity v and arbitrarily small acceleration a. This value of p must hold in any small region near the disk rim. Therefore, the TSR gives rise to a discontinuity. The limit a > 0 should instead be smooth, because all empirical knowledge about inertial systems is obtained in frames with a <> 0, e.g., because of the Earth's rotation. Elimination of the discontinuity is possible using the set of theories "equivalent" to TSR of Part I. The clock synchronization ambiguity in inertial systems is then solved: only e_{1} = 0 (corresponding to absolute simultaneity) gives p = (c + v)/(c  v) when a > 0. Noninvariant values of the oneway velocity of light are thus obtained.

Abstract: It is remarkable that almost a century after the discovery of the Sagnac effect no justification based on the two relativistic theories has been found. Hasselbach and Nicklaus, describing their own experiment, list about twenty different explanations of the effect and comment: "This great variety (if not disparity) in the derivation of the Sagnac phase shift constitutes one of the several controversies ... that have been surrounding the Sagnac effect since the earliest days of studying interferences in rotating frames of reference." In the Sagnac 1913 experiment a platform was made to rotate uniformly around a vertical axis at a rate of 12 full rotations per second. In an interferometer mounted on the platform, two interfering light beams, reflected by four mirrors, propagated in opposite directions along a closed horizontal circuit defining a certain area. The rotating system included also the luminous source and a photographic plate recording the interference fringes.

Abstract: Recently pubblished spacetime transformations between inertial systems (different from the Lorentz transormations) are reviewed. Energy and momentum are defined consistently with these new transformation laws. Formally they equal the usual relativistic expressions only in the privileged frame, but numerically they do so in all inertial frames. All the precise experimental data concerning thresholds for inelastic processes, particle masses, and so on, can thus be explained also within this new theoretical framework.

Abstract: Traditional clock synchronisation on a rotating platform is shown to be incompatible with the experimentally established transformation of time. The latter transformation leads directly to solve this problem through noninvariant oneway speed of light. The conventionality of some features of relativity theory allows full compatibility with existing experimental evidence.

Abstract: We consider an isotropical inertial reference frame ("stationary") and in it a uniformly rotating circular platform of radius R. The velocity of light c relative to the rim of the platform is calculated and found to have values necessarily different from c. This c remains the same if R is increased but the peripheral velocity is kept constant. Since by so doing any small piece of the circumference can be considered better and better at rest in a ("moving") inertial system, the velocity of light relative to this system can be deduced. Noninvariant values are obtained and shown to coincide with the predictions of our recently published "inertial transformations".

Abstract: Atomic clocks distributed around the world communicate with one another by means of radio signals. The synchronization signals sent by a transmitting station always reach the receiving station 'on time', at any hour of the day and in any season, despite the motion of the Earth. For some authors this means that these signals propagate isotropically (with one way velocity c), even with respect to the Earth surface. In fact this may not be so; we show that the proper working of the network says nothing about the one way velocity, as it is consistent with another theory, empirically (almost) equivalent to special relativity, in which the one way speed of light has a directional dependence in moving frames.

Abstract: In the transformation of time between inertial reference frames the coefficient of the space variable, e_{1}, describes the possible choices of clock synchronization with its different values. In the first part of the paper we review the proof of a zero acceleration discontinuity for rotating platforms: the velocity of light relative to inertial reference frames agrees with the zero acceleration limit of the velocity of light relative to rotating platforms only by assuming e_{1} = 0, that is by replacing the Lorentz by the "inertial" transformations based on absolute simultaneity. The second part of the paper contains the proof that the same discontinuity exists also for linearly accelerated reference frames. Absolute simultaneity again provides the cure.

Abstract: Our recently proposed inertial transformations of the space and time variables based on absolute simultaneity imply the existence of a single isotropic inertial reference system ("privileged system"). We show, however, that a resynchronization of clocks in all inertial systems is possible leadind to a different, arbitrarily chosen, isotropic "privileged" system. Such a resynchronization does not modify any one of the empirical consequences of theory, which is thus compatible with a formulation of the relativity principle weskeer than adopted in Einstein's theory of special relativity.

Abstract: An isotropic inertial reference frame ("stationary") is considererd, in which a circular disk of radius R rotates uniformly. The velocity of light [] relative to the rim of the disk is calculated under very general assumptions and found to satisfy []. This [] remains the same if R is increased but the peripheral velocity of the disk is kept constant. Since by so doing any small part of the circumference can be considered (for a short time) better and better at rest in a ("moving") inertial system, there is a discontinuity between accelerated reference frames with arbitrarily small acceleration and inertial frames, if the velocity of light is assumed to be c in the latter. Elimination of the discontinuity is shown to imply fos inertial systems a velocity of light [], necessarily equal to that obtained from recently published "inertial transformations."

Abstract: The present paper reviews the results obtained in recent years by the author in relativistic physics. Historically the two theories of relativity were born from the clash of positivism and realism. The former current of thought used relativism as a weapon against ideas of realistic inclination, like Lorentz's. Paradoxes were the consequence in the new relativistic paradigm of emarginating realism. The recent understanding of the role of the conventional definition of simultaneity in relativistic physics has opened the doors to new lines of thought. Epistemologists have stressed that the coefficient of the space variable x in the Lorentz transformation of time (we call it e1) has a nonphysical ("conventional") nature. Therefore, it should be possible to modify e1 without touching the empirical predictions of the theory. Given that Einstein's principle of relativity leads necessarily to the Lorentz transformations, such a modification implies however a reformulation of the relativistic idea itself. With respect to this ideal picture, the concrete development of the research has produced some exciting surprises. Nature does not seem to be so indifferent about the value of e1, given that several phenomena, in particular those taking place on a rotating platform (Sagnac effect, and all that) converge in a strong indication of the value e1 = 0 .This implies absolute simultaneity and a new type of space and time transformations which we call "inertial". Today we count on six proofs of absolute simultaneity, which are essentially independent of one another (three are contained in the second part of the paper). The cosmological consequences of the new structure of space and time go against the big bang model. After our results relativism, although weakened, is not dead and keeps proposing itself under milder forms.

Abstract: At the end of the XIX century Poincar? had the idea that one way velocities are not measurable. To measure them one needs synchronized clocks, but to synchronize clocks one needs to know the one way velocity of some signal. It seems a perfect logical loop, impossible to overcome. Einstein essentially adopted the idea when he defined the velocity of light as constant to formulate the TSR. In 1927 the German philosopher of science Hans Reichenbach, discussed this definition concluding that even if essential for the TSR, it was “not epistemologically necessary.“ Half a century later, in the years 19771984, Max Jammer produced a very stimulating reconstruction of the debates about the notion of distant simultaneity. He stressed that one cannot know the simultaneity of distant events at all since simultaneity is arbitrary; and therefore we can lay down whatever definition we wish concerning it, without giving rise to any error. At this point several people must have felt that the ReichenbachJammer conjecture was too selfassured for a statement almost completely lacking empirical support. Researches trying to confirm/invalidate the conjecture actually started in several places. If the coefficient of the space variable x in the Lorentz, or other, transformation of time (we call it e_{1}) had a conventional nature it should be possible to modify it without touching the empirical predictions of the theory. Given that Einstein’s principle of relativity leads necessarily to the Lorentz transformations, and thus also to a fixed value of e_{1} , such a modification would imply a reformulation of the relativistic idea itself. With respect to the idealized initial picture, the concrete development of research has produced some exciting novelties. Several phenomena, in particular those taking place on accelerating systems (Sagnac effect, and all that) converge in a strong indication of the value = e_{1}. This implies absolute simultaneity and a new type of space and time transformations, which we call "inertial". The cosmological consequences of the new structure of space and time go against the big bang model. After these results relativism, although weakened, is not dead, but survives in milder forms.

Abstract: The purpose of this paper is twofold: (1) to discuss the basis of the Lorentz transformations showing that the invariance of the velocity of light has in them a role even more important than usually believed, and (2) to find the complete set of theories empirically equivalent to the special theory of relativity (STR) under the assumption that the oneway velocity of light is not measurable. In particular it will be shown that any modification of the coefficients of the Lorentz transformation, however small, gives rise to an ether theory, in the sense that the modified theory necessarily predicts the existence of a privileged frame that in principle can be detected experimentally, Therefore all the theories equivalent to STR but based on different transformation laws, must necessarily negate the validity of the relativity principle. We will come thus to the surprising conclusion that if the oneway velocity of light is not measurable, the content of the relativity principle is entirely conventional, since it can be affirmed or negated without any practical change in the predictive power of the theory.

Abstract: The conviction that relativistic simultaneity has a conventional nature is shared by many authors, but it will be shown that simultaneity exists in the physical reality and therefore cannot be conventional. If the coefficient  we call it e_{1}  of the space variable x in the Lorentz, or other, transformation of time had a conventional nature it should be possible to modify it without touching the empirical predictions of the theory: this expectation can be called ReichenbachJammer conjecture (?RJ conjecture?). Given that Einstein's principle of relativity leads necessarily to the Lorentz transformations, and thus also to a fixed nonzero value of e_{1}, the modification would imply a reformulation of the relativistic idea itself. With respect to the idealized expectation, based on the RJ conjecture, the concrete development of physics produces some exciting novelties. Several phenomena, in particular those taking place in accelerating frames (Sagnac effect, and all that), converge in a strong indication of e_{1} = 0. This implies absolute simultaneity and a new type of space and time transformations, which we call "inertial". We give eight proofs of absolute simultaneity, deduced from essentially independent normally accepted premises.

Abstract: A simple and rigorous proof of the Sagnac effect for the most general value of the synchronization parameter e1 is given. If in the final result one adopts the relativistic e_{1} one can see that the relativistic theory is incompatible with the experimental evidence. Only the theory with e_{1} = 0 predicts correctly the Sagnac effect. Of course the obtained results depend on the assumptions made, which look rather safe however.
