Maldwyn Centre for Theoretical Physics

The centre was founded in 1991 in Montgomeryshire, Wales and moved to its present location in Suffolk in 1995. The centre works on the theoretical foundations of physics, looking at how to simplify and build on the better understanding that results. The aim of the centre is to simplify the understanding of physics and to show how different interpretations of accepted formulae and numerical results can provide alternative interpretations. A quarterly journal of progress is published and circulated.

The foundation paper was published in the Journal of Physical Mathematics at as Lawrence M (2015) How SI Units Hide the Equal Strength of Gravitation and Charge Fields. J Phys Math 7: 151. doi:10.4172/2090-0902.1000151.

The paper can be read here, with the missing tables here .

Unfortunately there are a handful mistakes that were not corrected in the publication process, beyond the omission of the five Tables, so for a definitive reading of the paper in full as submitted for publication, please see here or as corrected in the journal format here although you will need to download the pdf to see what the corrections actually represent.

After this foundation paper, which was eventually published correctly, a further paper was published explaining that the difference between relativistic and quantum environments is most likely due to the presence or absence of viscosity. The viscosity is caused by the composition of the universe itself from particle and anti-particle pairs, which is termed the 'background'. Where the background gets in the way of motion, there is a drag on the motion of all particles. The formation of tunnels through the background during entanglement enables the motion of the entangled composite particles without viscosity. So where viscosity is felt, all particles lose energy and have a terminal velocity. Where there is no viscosity, there is no terminal velocity and non-locality exists.

The paper can be viewed here. It is also soon to be published as a book, and that version can be viewed here.

Additionally there is a short paper on a possible very short solution to Fermat's Last Theorem using a methodology related to relativistic additionA possible short Fermat solution.

The latest paper on a theory of everything was presented at the Vigier series of conferences in Belgium in August. It is an overview of all the points necessary to create the alternative interpretation of physics postulated here. It is in the form of 95 short theses.A Hypothetical Pre-Fermion TOE in 95 Theses.

The abstract is: This is a hypothetical pre-fermion particle theory of everything, explaining the symmetric foundations of physics and why relativistic and quantum systems are different and irreconcilable. It is based on a single particle/anti-particle foundation and the background from which they emerge, using which the zoo of fermions, bosons, nucleons, photons and the observed universe are explained. The only two underlying types of energy presumed to exist are treated identically and produce standard formulae, except where the missing component in current formulae is shown to be necessary to explain stable orbits and why there is a maximum speed through the background universe. Matter and anti-matter are shown to be present in equal quantities and some dark matter is shown as the same composite loop form as matter, but with immiscible symmetries due to different number of particle/anti-particle pairs in the composites. The emergence of the particle/anti-particles from merged to unmerged state is shown to lead to randomly distributed failed big bang events within the single universe through which our successful big bang is expanding. Viscosity in the background universe, comprising merged particle/anti-particle pairs, saps energy from all composite particles and produces the light speed terminal velocity of photons. The resultant viscosity red-shift needs to be accommodated within current estimates of the size, age and expansion rate of the universe. The viscosity of the background in sapping energy from all motion within it leads to an arrow of time, the second law of thermodynamics and the relativistic framework. Where the background is absent, in tunnels between entangled loops, there is no viscosity present and velocities above light speed are possible and the quantum framework exists. Composite loops formed from the unit meon building blocks during different inflation events produce different sizes of fermions, nucleons and atoms, but produce a type of universe with symmetries similar to ours as the inevitable outcome of a successful inflation event. The rate of expansion after a big bang is a function of the size of the equivalent of the electron formed during inflation and that size defines whether the expansion will eventually succeed or fail. Key paradoxes are shown not to be paradoxes. This framework explains what energy and inertia are, how positive-only mass arises, spin units of h, electrons with g=2 and 720 degrees of rotation, charge unit sizes, why particles have internal magnetic moments, the second law of thermodynamics and the arrow of time, where there is a maximum speed for particles, why stable states exist, why tired light may reduce the need for dark energy or the size of the universe, why there is no matter/anti-matter imbalance, what different types of dark matter are likely to be, the physical reality underlying zero point energy, why physics fails nowhere, why there is only one universe and threefold symmetry within our nucleons.
