Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

"I s this 'new' equation rigorous? "  as far as a farm boy can see yes! Here in West Friesland we have a saying "the dumbest farmers have the biggest potatoes" And farmers have that native cunning, especially in Hooterville. My favourite show www.youtube.com/watch?v=umS3XM3xAPk I was planning to ex...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

momentum kills, well momentum has not killed a single cat as it is a mathematical construct only. But knowing about momentum p=mv can kill people and cats, some think twice the speed, twice the momentum, twice the impact... (not that any physicist think so, but still). nothing measurable correspond ...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

I think you ate [$]\gamma^2[$] when you put [$]\frac{v^2}{c^2} \approx0[$]: \begin{eqnarray} E^2&=&m^2c^4\left(\frac{v^2}{c^2}-1\right)\gamma^2+m^2c^4\gamma^2+m^2c^4\nonumber \\ E^2&=&-m^2c^4\gamma^2 + m^2c^4\gamma^2+m^2c^4 \nonumber \\\\ E^2&=&m^2c^4 \nonumber \\ E&=&mc^2\nonumber \\ \end{eqnarray...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

"I s this 'new' equation rigorous? "  as far as a farm boy can see yes! well so yes I assume the Compton wave is the real matter wave and not de Broglie wave, the standard momentum is linked to de Broglie, so I define a new momentum based on Compton wave, it is all rigoroouuusis, and if wave equatio...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

I continue my moon-log  Cool, it looks like a wave equation that satisfies the relativistic energy Compton momentum relation will, in addition automatically satisfy the standard relativistic energy momentum relation (de Broglie, not strange as de Broglie is derivative of Compton).  The relativistic ...

Re: "Unified Revolution" new book by Espen Haug

Back in 2018 (dec 28 vixra) I put out my first attempt to make a new relativistic wave equation rooted in what I call the (kinetic) Compton momentum, rather than the standard (kinetic) momentum, that from a quantum perspective is rooted in the de Broglie wave (which is a mathematical derivative of t...
