TOPIC: The Planck-Kleinert Crystal
The most remarkable feature of the deterministic laws of classical physics used in materials science is the wide range of time, place, and scale on which they hold. This talk will review some recent efforts to understand how quantum theory, gravity and electromagnetism emerge from the domain of classical predictability of every day experience. I review two key developments that form a foundation of the Planck-Kleinert Crystal hypothesis: 1) the bi-velocity method (known also as Darken method) and 2) the volume continuity law.
The Planck-Kleinert Crystal hypothesis will be presented for the ideal cubic fcc crystal formed by Planck particles. In this type of quasi-continuum the energy, momentum, mass and volume transport are described by the classical balance equations. The transverse wave is the electromagnetic wave and its velocity equals the velocity of light. The quasi-stationary collective movement of mass in the crystal is equivalent to the particle (body) and such an approach enables derivation of the Schr÷dinger equation. The diffusing interstitial Planck particles create a gravity field. The model predicts four different force fields and vast amount of the "dark matter and dark energy" in the crystal lattice. It allows for the self-consistent interpretation of multiscale phenomena.
