Biography

Born in Three Lakes, Washington, Robert L. Carroll made West Virginia his home early in life. He earned his AB in Education at Fairmont State College in 1933, his MS in Mathematics in 1940 and PhD in Mathematical Physics in 1944, both at West Virginia University in Morgantown. His career included academic positions, such as head of the Physics Department at Fairmont 1946-1956 and at Baptist College of Charleston, SC 1965-1977, and also military and industrial positions, such as Chief Engineer and Dean of Academics at the US Naval Test Pilot School in Pautuxet, MD 1956-1958, and Senior Scientist at American Machine & Foundary Company in Alexandria, VA 1959-1961.

In addition to several scientific papers in periodicals such as Physical Review, Carroll published a college textbook, The Aerodynamics of Powered Flight, John Wiley & Sons (1960), and held patents in Guided Missile Circuitry and Low Temperature Heat Transfer Devices. He began his dissident research as he approached his 1977 retirement, resulting in several books, all self-published by the Carroll Research Institute, Columbia, SC.

Description

During his research, Dr. Robert L. Carroll came across a simple method of convincing an atom to give up all its energy. Carroll says his process is based on a method which causes electrons to collapse into the nucleus of an atom. With the collapse of the electron shell, the atom is "disrupted", causing the entire mass of the atom to be converted into energy in the form of particles called mesons.

Current thought on nuclear energy follows two direction.  Fission is the process where the atom is split to give up energy and is the method used in nuclear power plants and atomic bombs. Fusion reaction, the process of combining atoms to get energy, is still in the experimental stage. The major drawbacks of these two processes is that they are less than 50 percent efficient and leave radioactive waste after the reaction.

Carroll's method is a third type of nuclear energy process: it is called nulcear disruption. Carroll says it will be 100 percent efficient and leave no radioactive waste. "What's more," he says, "the process would not use heavy elements like uranium. The process would ideally use hydrogen, the most abundant element in the universe." - Inside cover

The present volume is a compilation of a series of separate articles developed by the author over a period of years... The articles resulted from the author's attempts to teach himself something about the field of physics... For those who are interested only in the "Bottom Line," the analysis in Chapter 3 shows that the present estimate of the energy of the universe is short by a factor of ten to the eighty second power. In Chapter 4 there is suggested a means by which this energy can be made available for human use. The process depends upon the patent number 3664143 in the name of the author. - Introduction

Description

The human is the only entity in existence capable of believing any number of contradictory things simultaneously, and having absolute faith in the validity of each of them. By the same system of logic, truth is too obscure to be recognized even when it carries the weight of a Mack truck. This gentle observation is made as an introduction to what has been termed "The most famous unsolved problem in the history of mathematics." The problme is known as Fermat's Last Theorem.

The present author learned of the problem and generated a valid solution in 1960.  It scarcely needs to be mentioned that the solution was not accepted. Since that time, three additional separate and independent solutions leading to the same conclusion have been generated. The present article is concerned with what the author considers the simplest and most elegant of the four solutions.

Description

In the past there has been no approach to the study of prime numbers other than that provided by the Seive of Eratosthanes. The process is that pf sifting out composite numbers to leave the primes. Then we may sya that the process yields primes by default.

The present treatise is concerned with the development of algebraic forms from which prime numbers can be developed. Solutions to all the unsolved problems concerning primes are presented. These include the problem of twin primes, sums and differences of primes, and algebraic forms yielding primes.

Also included are solutions to Fermat's Last Theorem, and the Four Color Problem. The basic philosophy is that of showing how easy these unsolved problems can be in actuality. The first two chapters then serve to instill confidence that there are no difficult problems in mathematics. The student must overcome prejudice to the effect that mathematics is difficult before he can relax and enjoy the subject. It is hoped that the present work will give the student as much enjoyment in the reading of it as the author derived in the process of writing.

Description

There are three quatations that are pertinent to the present work. John Keats in the poem, Ode on a Grecian Urn, states: "Beaty is truth, truth beauty, that is all ye know on earth, and all ye need to know."

If the poet is right, the book Betond the Farthest Star is the most beatiful book ever writte, Another quote from James Russell Lowell's The Present Crisis is: "Truth forever on the scaffold, wrong forever on the throne - Yet the scaffold sways the future and behind the dim unknown standeth God within the shadow, keeping wathc above his own." Considering fifty years of opposition to anything sensible, it is to be hoped that the book will set the record straigth.

First Corinthians, chapter 13, verses 9 and 10: "For we know in part, and we prophesy in part, but when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away."

The above quote from Saint Paul's letter should be taken to heart. In terms of the future of mankind, the present system based on the work of Euclid, Galileo, Newton, and Einstein is fatally flawed. Present physics can be trusted for mechanical velocities but diverges from reality beyond one tenth the velocity of light. It cannot be said that the contributions of past investigators are without value, but each gave only a partial truth.

Description

Let it be known that I have nothing but good will and thanks for all of the scientists who opposed me so long and so faithfully. Without their opposition, I would never have carried the work to the degree of perfection that it now has. My greatest debt of gratitude goes to Einstein himself who generated a theory which reacted upon me in the same way that a red flag reacts upon a bull. My determination to prove him wrong in every respect has led me to a long and successful career. My salute to him may be summed up in his sole contribution to the future: E = MC2.

Description

A clear and logical introduction to the science and mechanisms of powered flight.

This book offers a new approach to the subject which is both simple and direct, an approach which is logical rather than historical. By showing that lift is directly dependent on power and by treating rocket power as the logical lift source, the author is able to give an exposition of the science and mechanisms of powered flight which is unique in its clarity and simplicity.

While providing a foundation in fluid flow and airfoil theory, the work also introduces the fundamentals of propulsion, stability, performance, design, and control. All of the practical problems of flight in the subsonic and supersonic regimes' are discussed. The presentation throughout is thoroughly modern, and many of the topics covered (e.g., rockets, the mission concept, supersonic flight, etc.) are ones which older books either neglect or treat inadequately.

The mathematical approach of the book is simple without being too elementary. In order to emphasize the practical aspects of flight, the author has included 216 problems, half of which are answered (an answer booklet for the remainder is available).

Description

In his book, A Brief History of Time, Stephen Hawking's comment that, "Every mathematical equation used results in the loss of one-half the number of readers," is essentially true. His acceptance of the basic principles of general relativity and unified field theory is unfortunate, but in no way reflects upon the integrity of the man...

Papers by Dr. Robert L. Carroll



The Black Hole

(1993)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com



Apeiron, Volume 1, No. 17, pp. 18-21
Keywords: Cosmology, Black Hole

Lookup: cosmology (47), black hole (8), black (22), hole (9)

Abstract:

The action of the atomic clock is interpreted to show that time is an invariant form. The proper interpretation requires an internal reduction in the energy of matter for any velocity imposed. The law of the conservative field is applied to correct the Einstein equation for free fall. It is found that the action of contact forces is conservative as long as no radiation occurs. These facts are applied to show that the Black Hole as envisioned in the study of Cosmology has no existence in the real universe.




The Mass-Space Principle

(1993)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Galilean Electrodynamics, Volume 4, No. 4, pp. 66-68
Keywords: Space-Mass Principle, matter, Lorentz transformations

Lookup: matter (67), lorentz transformations (5), space (104), principle (57), mass (94), lorentz (73), transformations (12)

Abstract:

The fallacy of treating space and matter as separate entities is demonstrated. The Lorentz transformations are shown self-consistent, but physically impossible. The Space-Mass Principle is introduced to show that there is no background of space separate from matter which determines it.



The Photon

(1996)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 19, pp. 14-15
Keywords: photons, wave equation

Lookup: photon (44), equation (24), wave (35)

Abstract:

This article is written to show that the photon is a wave motion limited to one wavelength in the longitudinal direction and a transverse circumference of one wavelength. This gives it the form of a cylinder with no indication of any spread with distance of travel. Thus it has the characteristics of both wave and particle. The ?either-or? controversy of wave or particle is avoided in this way. There is no indication that a medium is required for its propagation.



The Perpetuation of Error

(1997)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com


Electric Spacecraft Journal, No. 21, pp. 14-18
Keywords: energy, fields

Lookup: fields (36), energy (303)

Abstract:

It is shown that the field of physics is limited in its development by the perpetuation of erroneous concepts from the past. This fact applies to the concept of Euclidean space, to Newton?s laws of motion, and to the work of Einstein. Corrections are made, and it is shown that space has no meaning aside from energy. The present measure of universal energy is low by a factor equal to the number of positrons and electrons in existence.



The Nature of Time

(1992)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Galilean Electrodynamics, Volume 3, No. 6, pp. 112-113
Keywords: total energy, relativity time, internal energy. accelerated object

Lookup: relativity (390), time (100), energy (303), object (6), total (2), internal (3)

Abstract:

The nature of the conservative field is used to show that the application of contact forces cannot change the total energy of an object. Mathematical analysis indicates that field forces are velocity-dependent. The concept that the reactive force does not work is shown in error. Analysis shows that the relativity time transformation has no validity in the sense of a time dilation, but indicates a reduction in the internal energy of an accelerated object, and hence the slowing of periodic processes.



Superconductivity and Electron Viscosity

(1991)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Galilean Electrodynamics, Volume 2, No. 1, pp. 10-12
Keywords: superconductivity, electron viscosity, quantum theory, fluid mechanics

Lookup: quantum theory (15), superconductivity (4), fluid mechanics (2), theory (173), quantum (151), mechanics (76), fluid (10), electron (46)

Abstract:

By applying quantum theory to fluid mechanics, it is shown why superconductivity was considered a low temperature phenomenon, but that under certain circumstances electron pairing and high currents in filaments will occur. In particular, it is found that bismuth at room temperatures cannot be far from superconductivity.



The Toroidal Electron

(1991)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Galilean Electrodynamics, Volume 2, No. 5, pp. 94-97
Keywords: toroidal electron, matter, elementary particles, velocity, energy, momentum

Lookup: energy (303), matter (67), momentum (58), velocity (55), physics (44), particle (38), electron (46), toroidal (3), elementary (23)

Abstract:

Reasons are given for introducing half integers as separation constants in solving the general wave equation associated with matter. The results are interpreted as a description of two types of elementary particles, electrons and positrons, each with two types of spin, with an internal circulation velocity equal to the velocity of light when the particle is at rest, but in general dependent on the translational velocity. Energy and momentum relations are also derived.



The Role of Inertial Force in Energy Exchanges

(1990)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Galilean Electrodynamics, Volume 1, No. 1, pp. 7-14
Keywords: inertial force, energy exchanges, matter

Lookup: matter (67), energy (303), force (74), inertial (35)

Abstract:

The simplest concept of physics is that of the equality of the forces of action and reaction. If two ojects interact by contact, an equality of magnitudes between the applied and inertial forces is required. The applied force does work upon the object with which it is in contact. The inertial force, it is thought, does no work. The problem is how to define which force is the one applied and which object exerts the inertial force. In the absence of an external reference frame, we can say the second object was at rest when it was struck by the first. Therefore the inertial force was generated by the second object. The viewpoint that the second object was struck by the first is just as valid, but requires that the inertial force should be generated by the first object. Since it is impossible to define which force is inertial, and which is not, we abandon the concept that the inertial force does no work. The analysis then leads to the internal energy of matter.



The Nature of Space

(1990)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll
Fairmont, WV 26555, United States; ndrummond@sc.rr.com
Galilean Electrodynamics, Volume 1, No. 4, pp. 49-54
Keywords: space, matter, energy, particular gravitation, electromagnetic, and rotational energy

Lookup: space (104), energy (303), matter (67), electromagnetic (46), gravity (124), rotational (4)

Abstract:

The paper shows that the concept of space is bound to matter and its energy, in particular gravitational, electromagnetic, and rotational energy. It follows that the universe must be finite and cannot be steadily expanding.

The Non-Conservation of Energy

(1997)

Dr. Robert L. Carroll

Abstract:

It is shown that Newton's second law is valid only as applied to a particle in which a collapsing field releases energy that goes into a mass increase. The third law applies to mechanics but requires that contact forces are conservative. The kinetic energy is increased at the expense of the internal energy. Analysis indicates that energies are not additive in quantum theory or in electromagnetic theory. Toroidal matter is introduced and a study of electron clusters is made. The decay energy of the cluster is shown to be in excess of the ballistic energy of formation. This fact is in accord with reported experimental results. The implication is that contraction energy is involved. No explanation of the sources of the added energy is attempted
