Mark Loewe's scientific interests

This is a shelf of good to excellent physics, chemistry, and mathematics books, several of which may be obtained at low cost.

As of 20 May 2019, the seven SI base units, second, meter, kilogram, ampere, kelvin, mole, and candela, are defined in terms of the seven SI defining constants, unperturbed ground state hyperfine transition frequency of the cesium 133 atom, speed of light in vacuum, Planck's constant, elementary charge, Boltzmann's constant, Avagodro's constant, and luminous efficacy of monochromatic radiation of frequency 540 × 10^{12} 1/s. Some additional units and constants are mentioned.

Planck's law of radiation is integrated to obtain the expression *σ* = 2π^{5}*k*^{4}/(15*h*^{3}*c*^{2}) for the Stefan-Boltzmann constant *σ* in terms of the speed of light *c*, Boltzmann's constant *k*, and Planck's constant *h*.

This gives 2018 CODATA recommended values for magnetic dipole moments of electrons, protons, neutrons, muons, helions (helium-3 nuclei), and tritons (tritium nuclei), and for some related parameters.

The mathematically simplest quantum mechanical systems are 2-level systems. Examples of 2-level systems include intrinsic angular momenta of spin-1/2 particles such as electrons, protons, neutrons, muons, helions (helium-3 nuclei), and tritons (tritium nuclei).

Muon catalyzed nuclear fusion might be our most promising way to efficiently produce clean and abundant energy through controlled nuclear fusion and does not require powerful lasers or high temperature plasmas.

Attention is focused on Segal's chronometric cosmology and chronometric theory of particles, gravity, and (non-Doppler) redshifts of light from extragalactic sources.

More to come ...
