from the Preface

It is actually dangerous for me to present the material that appears within this book due to the usual misunderstandings. Any scientist who claims that there are fundamental errors within the foundational methods used to obtain Einstein?s General and Special Theories of relativity may be greatly ridiculed by his colleagues who do not read carefully. The reason for this has nothing to do with science but has everything to do with scientific careers, research grants and the like. Thousands upon thousands of individuals have built their entire professional careers upon these two theories and their ramifications. The theoretical science produced is claimed to be ?rational? since it follows the patterns of a mathematical structure. As a mathematician who produces such structures, it is particular abhorrent to the scientific community if I make such a claim. Mathematicians seem to have an unsettling effect upon some members of the physical science community, especially when a mathematician delves into a natural science. After all, it was the mathematician Hilbert who, without any great effort, was actually the first to present, in a public form, the so-called Einstein gravitational field equations.

Now please read the following very carefully. The results presented here and in my published papers on this subject are not intended to denigrate those scientists who have, in the past, contributed to these Einsteinian theories or who continue to do so. The corrections I have made are in the foundations for these theories. The corrections are totally related to how the results are interpreted physically. These corrections do not contradict the results obtained when the Einsteinian approach and the language used are considered as models for behavior. These corrections are based upon newly discovered rules for rigorous infinitesimal modeling. These results may also be significant to those that hold to the belief that many events within the natural world are produced classically by a zero-point radiation field.

Many unqualified individuals continue to present their own alternatives to these Einstein theories, some claiming that the results are but an exercise in high-school algebra. Certain scientific groups tend to categorize any and all criticisms of the Einstein theories as coming from the unqualified and lump such criticisms into the same unworthy category. However, many highly qualified scientists of the past such as Builder, Fock, Ives and Dingle have made such claims relative to the foundations of these two theories. For Ives, the fundamental approach was to assume that such a thing as length contraction, and not time dilation, is a real natural effect and it is this that leads to the Einstein conclusions. In order to eliminate these criticisms, Lawden states the ?modern? interpretation that length contraction has no physical meaning, and only ?time dilation? is of significance. This modern assumption is certainly rather ad hoc in character. Further, many theory paradoxes still appear within the literature and are simply ignored by the scientific community. There is, however, a reason for this...

Logic for Everyone

by Dr. Robert A. Herrmann

Year: 1994

Websites: www.serve.com/herrmann/cont1.htm

Read it now online

Description

As far as I can tell, this is the most elementary book in Mathematical Logic available that also covers all of the basic material in the propositional and predicate calculus. This is the book written especially for the Midshipmen at the United States Naval Academy with the general view that it is a terminal course. Enough material is covered so that certain topics in elementary model theory can be included and all mathematical proofs are of the most elementary nature requiring no specialized mathematical procedures. Applications include a very elementary introduction to nonstandard models as they are obtained by means of the "compactness" theorem, and the generation of weak "ultrawords" and an "ultralogic" operator. A complete set of answers for all exercise problems and 6 figures in the form of gif images are included.

Some Applications of Nonstandard Analysis to Advanced Undergraduate Mathematics -- Infinitesimal Modeling, Elementary Physics, Generalized Functions

by Dr. Robert A. Herrmann

Year: 1991

Description

This 217 page book is constructed in a somewhat unusual manner. It is composed of three "manuals". In the first manual, the rigorous rules and procedures are presented and examples are given as to their use. With the exception of chapter 9, the actual proofs of the mathematical theorems that are so applied appear in a series of appendices.

The second much smaller manual applies these rigorous methods to some areas in physics not covered in the first manual. Such things as an actual formal derivation of Newton's Second Law of motion from more fundamental observations is given. Certain methods used in physics that deal with the concept of point masses are shown to be incorrectly expressed in the language that appears in elementary texts and the proper concept is presented.

As an added feature, the third manual deals with a very significant concept within nonstandard analysis, not specifically identified previously, the enlargement and the saturation properties for a model. In order to give appropriate instruction in the use of such concepts, they are applied to the important scientific and mathematical subject known as generalized functions or distributions.

Ultralogics and More

by Dr. Robert A. Herrmann

Year: 1993

Description

The research presented in this book may be the most significant scientific work of my entire professional career. It was in Oct. 1978 when the concepts were first discovered that have produced the significant mathematical structure developed within the pages of this book. It began with the idea that it might be possible to model mathematically the concept known as subliminal perception and other similar notions that do not lend themselves to numerical modeling. The G-model, the D-world model, the GGU-model and the MA-model are four of the mathematical models obtained by application of these mathematical results. Information relative to these models can be found throughout these web pages. After many, many years of refinement, the methods that appear are, I believe, the simplest possible and are based upon a few human linguistic experiences that are practiced trillions of time a day within our earthly environment. The mathematical structure and processes were purposely chosen to be the simplest and least controversial. Indeed, to individuals who do research within nonstandard analysis these mathematical methods would be considered as very elementary in character. However, the intuitive interpretation and application of these methods my be difficult to grasp without considerable effort and reflection. As far as can be determined, there are no logical nor conceptual errors within this book. Typographical errors will not alter any specific result.
