Previous Work on the Sagnac Effect

March 21, 2010

This is found in UFT 6 , which has been translated into Japanese and which first appeared in “Foundations of Physics Letters” and also in UFT 9. IN UFT 146 this work is developed with the Thomas precession. The Tomita Chiao effect for example is shown to be the Sagnac effect when the circumference of the circle is drawn out into the arc length of a helix, so the two effects have the same origin.

Topological Origin of the Sagnac Effect

March 21, 2010

This note brings together the concepts in the notes for paper 146 and on the Omnia Opera in ACP volume 119(3), Section X (OO 585). To read OO585 click on “Myron Evans”, then on “Omnia Opera”, then scroll down to OO585.┬áThe Sagnac effect is a topological effect that shows that mechanical rotation affects the electromagnetic phase. So mechanical rotation affects absorption spectra as in paper 146 in preparation.


Effect of Rotation on Electromagnetic Frequency

March 20, 2010

This is a check and confirmation of the effect of rotation on electromagnetic frequency under all conditions, a new phenomenon.


Sagnac / Michelson Interferometer

March 19, 2010

This is a design for a Sagnac Michelson interferometer to test that the Sagnac effect produces an effect on absorption.


Derivation of Special Relativity from The Thomas Precession

March 19, 2010

This note derives all the main features of special relativity and the Dirac equation from the Thomas precession.


Examples of the Effect of Rotation on Absorption Spectra

March 18, 2010

This note gives two examples, it is shown that gravitation is equivalent to rotating the Minkowski metric, and that the Sagnac effect is a particular example of the new general effect that any rotation can be measured as a shift in absorption spectra.


Papers on the Reduction of ECE to MH

March 17, 2010

These are papers by Horst Eckardt and Douglas Lindstrom on the reduction of ECE theory to MH. There are very many MH effects but in electrical engineering the non MH properties manifest themselves only with specialist engineering. These papers are intended to explore the way in which specialist engineering leads to new energy.



Feedback 1-15 March

March 16, 2010

This is the feedback for for March 1st to 15th, appended to the end of this overview file. As usual the summary given here concentrates on the higher educational sector and is a small fraction of the total interest.


The Effect of Rotation on Spectra

March 15, 2010

This note introduces a new ubiquitous effect in physics, the effect of rotation on the quantum theory of absorption. There is no such effect in the Maxwell Heaviside Planck theory but a special case of this new general effect is the Sagnac effect.


Derivation of the Sagnac Effect from Cartan Torsion

March 14, 2010

This is a derivation of the Sagnac effect from the Cartan torsion, relating the result to the Thomas precession. The important result is obtained that rotation affects electromagnetic and matter wave properties in any situation, not just the Sagnac effect. This result affects all optics and spectroscopy.
