Quantum Photodynamics: Elements for a Physics of Time
Via Crescitelli, 6, 20052 Monza, Italy
After a brief historical survey of some hypotheses regarding the electromagnetic nature of matter, we propose a quantum model of inertia and relativity. Each mass is made to correspond with a dual‐phase vectorial period, attributing to it the main characteristics of space‐time. By means of an elementary calculus technique, this model is applied to the study of gravitational interactions, thereby obtaining expressions of general relativity, including possible research into the quantum states of a black hole. This same methodology, when applied to a hydrogenoid structure, leads us to quantization formulas which are extremely reminiscent of those obtained with quantum mechanics. This leads to considerations regarding the fractal nature of space‐time and the photonic nature of gravitation and inertia.
