Fundamental Interactions in New Physical Perspective (FINePP)

(Invariance in the Presence of Kintetic Gauge Fields)

The physicist Leo Szilard once announced to his friend Hans Bethe that he was thinking of keeping a diary:
“ I don't intend to publish. I am merely going to record the facts for the information of God.”
“ Don't you think God knows the facts?” - Bethe asked.
“ Yes,” said Szilard,
“ He knows the facts, but He does not know this version of the facts.”

Proposed reading:


INTRODUCTION to the Textbook

This book treats fundamental physical interactions starting from two preliminary assumptions.

(a) Although mass of gravity and mass of inertia are equivalent quantities in their measured values, they are qualitatively not identical physical entities. We will take into consideration this difference in our equations.
Later we will extend this ‘equivalence is not identity’ principle to sources of further fundamental interaction fields, other than gravity.

(b) Physical interactions occur between these qualitatively different entities.

These two assumptions do not contradict to any known physical theory, however, they allow another interpretation of facts built in our explanations of physical experience.

First we interpret the mentioned preliminary assumptions. Then we will sketch in main lines a picture of fundamental physical fields influenced by the distinction between the two qualitative forms of the individual field-charges and interaction between them. A next part will demonstrate the existence of an invariance between the two isotopic forms of the field charges, and will formulate certain consequences in our view on the physical structure of matter. Finally we will discuss how can these results potentially change our approach to a few open questions of physics, including the effects of a family of intermediate bosons to be predicted by the proven invariance between the assumed isotopic states of the individual field charges.

The proposed conceptual framework and assumption on the interaction mechanism goes beyond the Standard Model (SM). Many physicists are convinced that SM does not hold eternally alone and is not untranscendable; there will appear new, more precise theories that will partially include the SM, and answer those questions that are left open by the SM. However we do not certainly know how, at least at present.

CERN organised three workshops to discuss possible theoretical candidate models beyond the SM to base a “new physics” in accordance with fine scale anomalies and symmetry breakings in high energy experiments, in 2005-2007 (CERN workshop, 2008a; CERN workshop, 2008b; CERN workshop, 2008c). They agreed that SM holds, it needs only some extensions. So do we as well. Section IV of the present work provides an alternative extension theory, still not discussed in those three working group reports.

This work (started in January 2001) is an attempt to exceed a couple of the limits of the Standard Model. Gerard ‘t Hooft expressed his view on the physics after the SM: “What is generally expected is either a new symmetry principle or possibly a new regime with an altogether different set of physical fields.” ( See in: Hooft, 2005, Sec. 12). The isotopic field charge spin conservation and the D field, being introduced in this book, are candidates (Darvas, 2011).

The presented idea is based on the same facts like those considered in the SM, only on “another version” of them. It clusters the observations in another way. Unlike existing alternative theories, e.g., the SUSY, which renders a new (“supersymmetric”) brother to each particle, this model clusters the observed sources of fields in two-eggs twin pairs, regarding them as isotopic states of each other, and there is left “only” the twin brothers of the bosons mediating their interactions to be observed. It covers gravitational, electroweak and strong interactions. In contrast to the SUSY, which renders fermion-boson pairs as new-born brothers to each other, the Isotopic Field Charge Spin (IFCS) assumption, proposed in the present work, renders fermion-fermion and boson-boson twins to each other.

This assumption does not assume new fermions; the twin brothers of fermions originate in splitting the existing ones. Fermions split as a result of a newly interpreted property. The assumption is mathematically based (Darvas, 2009) on an invariance of interactions under rotation of the isotopic field charges’ spin (a property that distinguishes the field charge twins from each other) in a still hypothetical gauge field, that means, on the conservation of the isotopic field charge spin.

The bosonic twin brothers should appear as the quanta of the D field (cf., Section IV.3.2) that mediate between the split fermion states, that means, between isotopic states of field charges. The prediction of bosonic twin brothers will be discussed in Section IV.3.5.

The IFCS assumption theory does not give a clue to everything, (e.g., mass). It is a modest attempt to answer a few open questions of contemporary physics (Darvas, 2011).

Section I provides a conceptual introduction to the theme, Section II treats the introduced concepts in classical approaches and conjectures interaction between isotopic states of field charges, while the next one (III) discusses historical roots of the topic and their approaches from classical through quantum physics to field theories. Appearance of two different variants of the individual field charges in our physical equations would cause so far not experienced distortion in symmetries, unless another invariance does not counterbalance the apparently lost symmetries in our laws of nature. Section IV demonstrates the existence of this invariance, presents its exact mathematical proof and the physical consequences in field theory, then Section V derives conclusions.
