For those of you who are not familiar with the obscure aspects of General Relativity, hopefully this will steer you in the right direction for further research and knowledge. Non-Newtonian gravitational fields, which may be either attractive or repulsive, can be generated from three effects. These are that of rotating masses, moving masses, or fluctuating masses relative to a stationary, non-rotating body. These effects are similar to centrifugal, Coriolis, and other inertial forces and were first described by W. de Sitter in 1916 and Hans Thirring in 1918. Dr. Robert L. Forward published his Guidelines to Antigravity in March 1963 in the American Journal of Physics. Dr. Forward is an expert in General Relativity and Gravity Research and studied under Weber at the University of Maryland. In his guidelines article, he discusses the dipole effect of gravity as predicted by General Relativity. Unfortunately, the forces generated are extremely weak without very dense mass or extremely high angular velocities. I suggest that everyone with an interest in such aspects obtain a copy of this article and read it through before passing any judgements as to these forces existing or being generated! -- Phillip Carpenter ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Might a mass (gravitational charge) in motion also produce another type of field much like a magnetic one? Something like this is "gravitomagnetic effect" is theoretically predicted. If you were in such a field, it would simply give the impression that you were in a locally rotating frame of reference, so moving objects would experience coriolis forces, even when you were not rotating relative to distant reference points. As the effect is of the order of v1 v2/c^2 where v1 is the speed of the gravitational source and v2 is the speed of the test object, it is extremely small and has not yet been measured. Note also that a rotating massive object is expected to give rise to a similar field in the same way as a current loop gives rise to a magnetic field. This is known as the Lense-Thirring effect. A first-order Special Relativity approximation (which only applies for a locally inertial frame of reference where space isn't significantly curved) is simply that the rotation field is (v1 x g)/c^2 where g is the Newtonian acceleration vector v1 is the velocity of the source object. The acceleration that field generates for a body moving with velocity v2 is v2 x (v1 x g)/c^2. Note for comparison that the magnetic field is B = (v1 x E)/c^2 so the magnetic force is q v2 x (v1 x E)/c^2. The gravitational rotation field calculated in this way is equal to 2w where w is the apparent angular velocity of rotation. It is hoped that "conscience- guided" satellite experiments may confirm this effect within a few years, but at present there are too many other disturbances which make it too difficult to measure such a small effect. The rotation field, whether caused by a linearly moving mass or a rotating object, only affects moving masses. However, there is of course a much stronger associated acceleration field which affects all masses. From the subjective point of view, the acceleration field may appear to be partly linear acceleration and partly "centrifugal" force associated with rotary motion, but this is a higher-order effect. -- Jonathan Scott ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Some scientists in Boulder, CO (USA) have suceeded in cooling down matter into the elusive Bose-Einstein condensate. The kinetic energy of the atoms in this state have been removed. If you could maintain this state in stable form and spin it, the angular momentum would repel the earth and lift many times its own mass. Outside of the atmosphere, this could produce the desired gravitational dipole effect. ------------------------------------------------- -------------------------- Bonaldi, M., et al., "Inertial and Gravitational Experiments With Superfluids: A Progress Report," Proceedings of the Fourth Marcel Grossmann Meeting on General Relativity, Elsevler Science Publishers B.V., 1985, pp. 1309-1317. -------------------------------------------------------------------------- Title: ANGULAR MOMENTUM PARADOXES WITH SOLENOIDS AND MONOPOLES In: Phys.Lett.118B:385,1982 Date/Source: August 1982 Fermilab Library: FERMILAB-PUB-82/53-THY -- Preprint -- Available Title: Long range effects in asymptotic fields and angular momentum of classical field electrodynamics Date/Source: February 1995 Fermilab Library: CALL NUMBER DESY-95-035 -- Preprint -- Available Title: Angular Momentum Authors: Brink, D.

They found that gyroscopes spinning clockwise as seen from above, at their location, exhibited a decrease in relative mass of 5.07 x 10^-5 and 4.22 x 10^-5 respectively for the two gyroscope configurations studied. (Weight was multiplied by 1-e where e is the relative factors given above, if I haven't botched up in my arithmetic.) The effect as plotted in the paper I saw appears to be perfectly linear to within reasonable experimental error, thus giving a rotational velocity at which the weight would go to zero which I made out to be 3.27 MHz (million rotations per second) in the first case and 3.95 MHz in the second. That was with CLOCKWISE rotation as seen from above. With COUNTERclockwise rotation, the same experimental setup showed ZERO EFFECT. Zip. Nada. Nichts. Nyechevo. You get the idea. For one thing, this result makes it almost certain that they are NOT dealing with bad lab technique. Not to mention the fact that they spent nearly a year and a half going over and over their setup and trying to answer all objections by the reviewers of their Physical Review Letters paper (it eventually appeared in PRL (63 2701)). As far as I know, nobody has published a theoretical model that accounts for these observations. The idea of a physical phenomenon that appears only in one direction of rotation is rather unprecedented. I know of only one other mathematical/physical phenomenon that does this, and I'm trying to understand how the two might be related, but without success as yet. -- John Sangster ------------------------------------------------------------------------- Physicist Alex Harvey wrote an article about the Hayakawa-Taguechi experiment. The article was published in: Nature, Aug 23 1990, Vol 346 Page 705 You'll also find other references there. Harvey shows mathematically that an angular momentum vector aligned antiparallel to the local gravitational field violates the equivalence principle. He also shows that the path of a spinning body under gravity need not be geodesic. Here are two "holes" in GR that seem to account for the behavior of H & T's gyros. New experiments should be designed to force the asymmetry to appear, as predicted by theory, rather than passively leave the results to chance. There is a dimensional error of Hayasaka and Takeuchi which CAN be corrected by supplying a quantity that restores proper dimensionality. In simplest terms, H and T's result looks like: { deltaN = - (proportionality constant) m w r } where deltaN is the weight change in Newtons, m is the mass of the rotor in kg, w is the rotation frequency in angular units and r is the radius of the rotor in meters. The units of the missing quantity are radians per second. The rotation, w, has already been counted. The missing quantity is the precession, Wp. With clockwise rotation, the vector J points down the spin axis, while the precession vector, Wp, points up the spin axis. Physicist Alex Harvey, writing about H and T's results, confirmed that there is no (symmetrical) weight gain, no effect at all, with counter-clockwise rotation, J (up). In this case, says Harvey, "[J] is parallel to the gravitational field." -- laradex3@sj.znet.com AUTHOR(s): Harvey, Alex TITLE(s): Complex Transformation of the Kasner Metric.

You're catching on. The subject of compound angular momentum, or internal and external angular momentum, or intrinsic and extrinsic angular momentum has been a repressed subject for about 2 and half decades. Add to that list, spherical pendulums, Coriolis effect, except as applied to balistics and meteorology as used by the US military, and Shafer's pendulum, that neat little device used as the artifical horizon of aircraft. >How does quantum angular momentum become organized from a microscopic to a macroscopic level? Has anyone ever published any work about this? I can't find any. There isn't any that I know of, though back in the late fifties, there was a fellow named Edward Condon at the University of Colorado who was fairly proficient on the subject. So much so that he wrote the rotational dynamics section, called noninertial dynamics at the time, of the reference "The Handbook of Physics" which he also co-edited (Chapter 5). I don't recall offhand who the publisher was (Harcourt/Brace?), though it was endorsed by the American Institute of Physics. Later, when Mr Condon was the head of the USAF project 'Blue Book', he labored to supress his own work when the directive was handed down from the Navy's Turtle Island project. -- James Youlton ------------------------------------------------------------------------ In the Barnett effect a long iron cylinder, when rotated at high speed about its longitudinal axis, is found to develop a measurable component of magnetization, the value of which is proportional to the angular speed. The effect is attributed to the influence of the impressed rotation upon the revolving electronics systems due to the mass property of the unpaired electrons within the atoms. -- Henry Wallace ----------------------------------------------------------------------- Barnett, S.J., "Magnetization By Rotation," The American Physical Society, Second Series, vol.

If a ferrite material is exposed to a higher magnetization field (more current through the coil) the ferritd will change in volume. I was not aware that this has anything to do with alignment to a spinning axis. For further information about this aspect of the Barnett effect, see: Ref.

PageDate: Fri, 22 Sep 1995 09:43:52 +0200 Critical Dynamics of Magnets Authors: Erwin Frey , Franz Schwabl (TU Muenchen) Comments: Review article (154 pages, figures included) We review our current understanding of the critical dynamics of magnets above and below the transition temperature with focus on the effects due to the dipole--dipole interaction present in all real magnets. Significant progress in our understanding of real ferromagnets in the vicinity of the critical point has been made in the last decade through improved experimental techniques and theoretical advances in taking into account realistic spin-spin interactions. We start our review with a discussion of the theoretical results for the critical dynamics based on recent renormalization group, mode coupling and spin wave theories. A detailed comparison is made of the theory with experimental results obtained by different measuring techniques, such as neutron scattering, hyperfine interaction, muon--spin--resonance, electron-- spin--resonance, and magnetic relaxation, in various materials. Furthermore we discuss the effects of dipolar interaction on the critical dynamics of three-- dimensional isotropic antiferromagnets and uniaxial ferromagnets. Special attention is also paid to a discussion of the consequences of dipolar anisotropies on the existence of magnetic order and the spin--wave spectrum in two--dimensional ferromagnets and antiferromagnets. We close our review with a formulation of critical dynamics in terms of nonlinear Langevin equations. --------------------------------------------------------------------------- Paper: cond-mat/9501029 From: Kazuhiro Kuboki Date: Mon, 09 Jan 1995 10:40:11 EST Title: Proximity-induced time-reversal symmetry breaking at Josephson junctions between unconventional superconductors Author: Kazuhiro Kuboki and Manfred Sigrist We argue that a locally time-reversal symmetry breaking state can occur at Josephson junctions between unconventional superconductors. Order parameters induced by the proximity effect can combine with the bulk order parameter to form such a state. This property is specifically due to the intrinsic phase structure of the pairing wave function in unconventional superconductors. Experimental consequences of this effect in high-temperature superconductors are examined. Paper: cond-mat/9501088 From: David Benedict Bailey Date: Thu, 19 Jan 1995 11:34:10 -0800 (PST) Title: Gapless Time-Reversal Symmetry Breaking Superconductivity Authors: A. M. Tikofsky and D. B. Bailey We consider a layered superconductor with a complex order parameter whose phase switches sign from one layer to the next. This system is shown to exhibit gapless superconductivity for sufficiently large interlayer pairing or interlayer hopping. In addition, this description is consistent with experiments finding signals of time-reversal symmetry breaking in high- temperature superconductors only at the surface and not in the sample bulk.

Altshuler, L. B. Ioffe, A. I. Larkin, A. J. Millis. Strongly correlated two dimensional electrons are believed to form a spin liquid in some regimes of density and temperature. As the density is varied, one expects a transition from this spin liquid state to a spin density wave antiferromagnetic state. In this paper we show that it is self-consistent to assume that this transition is second order and, on this assumption, determine the critical behavior of the 2p_F susceptibility, the NMR rates T1 and T2 and the uniform susceptibility. We compare our results to data on high Tc materials.

This generalises earlier work on the diamagnetism of charged spinless bosons to the case of infinite degrees of freedom. ------------------------------------------------------------------------
