Salmon, F.

The contemporary physical theories are based on several fundamental physical constants. No theoretical framework provides their experimental values. Here, we might have found two formulas yielding the value of the Planck constant and the speed of gravitational waves according to the vacuum properties. In particular, they highly suggest that gravita...

Am 20. Mai 2019 hat die Generalkonferenz für Maße und Gewichte die Definition zur Darstellung der Einheiten grundlegend erneut. Die Einheit Kilogramm des Internationalen Einheitensystems (SI) stand besonders im Fokus, da vermutet wurde, dass sich die Masse des Internationalen Kilogramm Prototyps (IPK) über die Zeit ändert. Wie auch andere SI-Einhei...

Modern physics has characterized spacetime, the interactions between particles, but not the nature of the particles themselves. Previous models of the electron have not specified its substance nor justified its cohesion. Here we present a relativistic electrodynamical model of the electron at rest, founded on natural interpretations of observables....

The golden ratio is found to be related to the fine-structure constant, which determines the strength of the electromagnetic interaction. The golden ratio and classical harmonic proportions with quartic equations give an approximate value for the inverse fine-structure constant the same as that discovered previously in the geometry of the hydrogen ...

The fine-structure constant, which determines the strength of the electromagnetic interaction, is briefly reviewed beginning with its introduction by Arnold Sommerfeld and also includes the interest of Wolfgang Pauli, Paul Dirac, Richard Feynman and others. Sommerfeld was very much a Pythagorean and sometimes compared to Johannes Kepler. The archet...

Atomic mass measurements are essential for obtaining several of the fundamental constants. The most precise atomic mass measurements, at the 10&minus / 10 level of precision or better, employ measurements of cyclotron frequencies of single ions in Penning traps. We discuss the relation of atomic masses to fundamental constants in the context of the...

Vibrational overtones in deeply-bound molecules are sensitive probes for variation of the proton-to-electron mass ratio &mu / . In nonpolar molecules, these overtones may be driven as two-photon transitions. Here, we present procedures for experiments with 16 O 2 + , including state-preparation through photoionization, a two-photon probe, and detec...

Research into ancient physical structures, some having been known as the seven wonders of the ancient world, inspired new developments in the early history of mathematics. At the other end of this spectrum of inquiry the research is concerned with the minimum of observations from physical data as exemplified by Eddington's Principle. Current discus...

We present a new derivation of the proton-electron mass ratio from the hydrogen molecular ion, HD$^+$. The derivation entails the adjustment of the mass ratio in highly precise theory so as to reproduce accurately measured ro-vibrational frequencies. This work is motivated by recent improvements of the theory, as well as the more accurate value of ...
