Is the Zitterbewegung concept still valid in the light of the Higgs field role in producing mass? Is Penrose right in saying that Zitterbewegung is synonymous with the Higgs field mass generation mechanism?Axilhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07190120527431077518noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-22973357.post-43894416988277204782020-11-12T08:56:49.645-05:002020-11-12T08:56:49.645-05:00Even after more than 100 years of quantum mechanic...Even after more than 100 years of quantum mechanical description of the hydrogen atom, the phenomenological aspects remain unexplained. There is an abundance of trend-setting misinterpretations which are surprising from an epistemological point of view, since the qualitative-analytical understanding of the omissions is very transparent.<br />Interesting is the fact that the Arnold Sommerfeld Dirk Freylinghttps://www.blogger.com/profile/15330626465475439718noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-22973357.post-86509320261153683882020-11-11T04:41:56.794-05:002020-11-11T04:41:56.794-05:00Regarding: “The onset of superconductivity is a si...Regarding: “The onset of superconductivity is a situation where the conduction electrons associated with an ion in a lattice, here being weakly interacting, are bunched. The electric field will of course tend to cause them to be apart, but at low temperature the configuration has lower energy when they pair up. These are the Cooper pairs.” <br /><br />If I may, some of the environmental Axilhttps://www.blogger.com/profile/07190120527431077518noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-22973357.post-32137638082221104992020-11-10T07:29:38.945-05:002020-11-10T07:29:38.945-05:00I watched Hartnoll’s lectures last summer.

As I recall this involved how Hawking radiation can generate charged particles outside a black hole in a way that cancels out the electric field. Remember, superconductivity breaks the symmetry of the U(1) QED field.

I wrote in Unicode a discussion of this that I have on file. I could post this, or parts of it, but it is a lot of Lie group theory and geometry/topology.
