The Rest Mass of the Photon

I should think that they are just encountering noise again, and there is nothing there. In Poincare’s theory the photon is just like any other relativistic particle of energy E = gamma m0 c squared and momentum p = gamma m0 v. Here gamma is the Lorentz factor gamma = (1 – (v / c) squared) power minus half. So when v = 0, E = m0 c squared and p = m0 v. Louis de Broglie equated E = h bar omega and p = h bar kappa to the above. Using the lowest known frequency of 0.01 Hz the photon rest mass is easily calculated to be about ten power minus fifty one kilograms. This is a fixed constant. The photon moves very close to c in almost all known experiments, so the moving mass m is increased by many orders of magnitude. The UFT papers summarized in UFT310 record the moving mass gamma m0. In all those papers the photon moves very close to c, but not quite at c. The claims by CERN simply make no sense to me. They do not look like science at all.

Subj: Re: Major Problems for CERN

Your statement below is important:

“I calculate that the photon rest mass is far too small to be measured by the Stefan Boltzmann law, with the instrumental precision we have now”

This may explain why results from CERN suggest a photon mass 26 orders of magnitude too large. Out of the noise, using their sophisticated equipment and multiple adjustable parameters, perhaps they are seeing something. It cannot be a Higgs boson as claimed though – that can then decay into two photons. Photon mass cannot be this large. There would be no electromagnetic spectrum from the ultra violet down with a photon rest mass of this magnitude.
