Transformative STEM Subjects and More, May 12, 2009

- - -A Short briefing will give clear-cut evidence of a transformative Work that will greatly alter our knowledge in physics, engineering, mathematics, philosophy of science and other important subjects.

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Transformative Works:

  1. Another Fundamental Principle of Superposition of Motion.

  2. On the Law of Conservation of Energy.

  3. On Action-Reaction.

Related (Mathematical) Philosophy of Science Works:

  1. Plato's Dialectic and Theory of Forms.

  2. Mathematics of "the One and Many" and the other Opposites.

  3. Aristotle's Theories of Change, Dunamis, and Entelechia.

All future specifications, statements of work, procurement and design of aircraft, spacecraft, launch vehicles, industrial facilities, bridges, buildings and other systems must incorporate new "dynamics principles," hitherto completely unknown. Many existing systems will require reevaluation to enhance safety, useful life and economy of operation and maintenance. Budgets, priorities, and actions will be different for different groups, e.g., DOD, DOE, DOT, DOC, NSF, NASA, NIH, NOAA, USGS, NIST, Intelligence and other agencies and the private sector.

Harmonic Oscillations in Force Fields
Submitted to Physical Review Letters, July 1992

The common practice of referring oscillations to the position of equilibrium has masked the most important features of harmonic motion in gravitational, electric and nuclear force fields. We show that oscillations in force fields are distinctly different from simple harmonic motion. We clarify how the distinct difference between the two motions lies in the forcing functions responsible for each type of oscillation. Whereas simple harmonic motion is strictly the result of an externally applied force-pulse, or impulse, of short duration, force-field-harmonic-motion is strictly the result of a series of force pulses supplied by the field itself. Field forces sustain oscillations in the fields, and it is therefore incorrect to cancel the effect of these forces by modeling symmetric motion about the equilibrium position.

The SHM model is usually referred to the equilibrium position (Fig. 1) which leads to symmetry, simplicity and mathematical elegance… This stratagem cancels the effect of the field force itself, and it obscures the correct behavior of an important parameter of the oscillations… Careful examination shows that the SHM model is not representative of oscillations in force fields.

The mass travels between 0 and –2x, and not between –x and +x; and the spring restoring force ranges between 0 and –2kx, and not between –kx and +kx.

The same considerations must also be made when using Lagrange’s equation, the Hamilton-Jacobi equation, or other methods to determine the motion of particles, such as, the electron, in a force field.

We hope that capable scientists, mathematicians, engineers and, even, philosophers, will inquire into and develop the many vistas that the new concepts offer.  

Bouncing Harmonic Motion and the Compton Effect
Submitted to Physical Review Letters, July 1992
Invited Paper to the Conference on Lasers in Science and Technology, Amman, Jordan, July 1993

  1. This paper followed my extensive dynamic transients analyses (1986-92) of Space Shuttle design - see ShuttleFactor Report. This Work led to the invention (1992-94) of the pulsing thrust method. All our Works lead to the important discoveries that are described (and will be added) in the STEMnP web page.

  2. Fig. 6(c), not discussed in this paper, gives the simplest geometric derivation of the energy levels of the hydrogen atom; see my comment in the Figure: "Areas of semi-circles in descending levels are exactly proportional to energy levels in hydrogen atom." Physicists will be fascinated by the incredibly simple geometric derivation of a very important concept in modern physics: Simply calculate the areas of the half-circles. I was astonished to discover the mathematical relationship. Euclid could have done it.

Models of bouncing-orbital motions give direct interpretation of quantum phenomena, such as, the unexpected wavelength shift in the Compton effect. We show how transitions from bouncing to orbital, and orbital to bouncing, motions change the apparent frequency and wavelength of oscillators. We also show how the well-tested Compton-Debye theoretical result, which is derived from lengthy analysis using classical, quantum, and relativistic concepts, is directly derivable from our models.

If our field of view is limited to only the peak region of the wave, then it will appear to us, and to our detectors, that the bouncing ball oscillates at twice the frequency, or half the wavelength, as the other oscillators; and vice versa.  We can be easily perplexed by this behavior, especially, if we expect, a priori, identical oscillations, frequencies, and wavelengths for the three particles.

- - -where Fo is a unit-step forcing function, which has the magnitude of the force field itself. The general solution (the dynamic overshoot - see Shuttlefactor Report) is also familiar- - -

Bouncing harmonic motion provides an "easy to imagine" physical interpretation for the wavelength shift and the persistence of the original wavelength.

F=ma, Important Equation, Big Mistake
May 2005, Submitted to Nature Journal

Example 3: The reader should reexamine the Principia objectively, and not be intimidated by the seemingly indecipherable book. The book is written in simple Euclidean form that is needlessly, though deliberately, complicated by Newton. The following is a conspicuous, easily verifiable, example of how Newton represents Leibniz's equation, 2mgh = mv2 , geometrically, but uses Galileo's equation, v2 = 2gh, verbally. This Example alone should leave no doubt in anyone's mind about the true meaning of Newton's Second Law of Motion. All educators must grasp this Example to explain its import to their students - - -

EXAMPLE 6: The Holy Grail for Newton's Principia is universal gravitation. Newton does not claim that he discovered any of the Three Laws of Motion. The title for the Laws states "Axioms, or Laws of Motion." Axioms are a priori known facts. According to Newton, the Laws of Motion were axiomatic, known and accepted before his book was written - - -

Newton declared that he wanted the book to be undecipherable. The book is decipherable, as can be seen from the evident Examples given above.

If Newton did not develop the equation F = ma, then, who did?

Conclusion: - - - When faced with the difficult choice between truth and dear friends, Aristotle chose Truth over a very dear and great friend, Plato. Today, the reader faces the same choice between the Truth and another great friend, Sir Isaac Newton.

Restoration in Mathematics, Physics and Philosophy
Unsolicited Proposal, May 2005

True Form and Meaning of the Conservation of Energy and Momentum

Background: The laws of conservation are called the most sacred principles in physics and the backbone of many subjects. For over 300 years, experts attempted to develop the conservation laws as part of the Mechanical Program. In the end, Henri Poincare asked, "What exactly remains constant?" in energy conservation, and Dr. Albert Einstein summarized the effort as follows, "Science did not succeed in carrying out the mechanical program convincingly, and today no physicist believes in the possibility of its fulfillment."

Lecture: AbuTaha has pursued the Mechanical Program persistently for half a century. He will show how everyone, including Sir Isaac Newton, mishandled the conservation laws. AbuTaha will explain, "What exactly remains constant?" in energy conservation. He will derive and show the correct mathematical form and true meaning of the conservation laws. This will profoundly impact many subjects in the arts and the sciences.

Mathematics of Dialectic and the Forms

Background: Dialectic was called the crowning science of all the sciences. It is the science that studies the Forms. Plato said that Dialectic unifies fragmented sciences and mathematics into a single reality, he developed the Theory of the Forms for the purpose, but he did not integrate the two subjects with coherent mathematics. For 3,000 years, no one was able to construct the arithmetic and geometry of Dialectic and the Forms. Today, no one knows the vital role of the Dialectic in science and engineering and, even, in economics, philosophy, psychology, and other important subjects.

Lecture: AbuTaha will reconstruct the extraordinary mathematics of Dialectic. He will review the basics of Dialectic and the Forms as expounded by Plato and Aristotle, Ibn Rushd (Averroes) and Al-Khawarismi (Algorismi of mathematical-logical algorithms), Oresme of Paris and the Mertonians at Oxford, and, in modern times, Galileo. The mathematics of the Dialectic and the Forms will  become a basic unit of study all over the world. The arithmetic and geometry of Dialectic and the Forms will become an integral part of commonsense. In the great tradition of western thought, this Lecture completes a great Restoration in Mathematics, Physics, and Philosophy.
