Particle model of single bubble sonoluminescence

October 2016

The single bubble sonoluminescence is a phenomenon where the vapour or gas bubble trapped in a liquid collapse by emitting light. Sonoluminescence is most often characterized by the formation of an imploding shock and the plasma. However, studies show that in some cases neither an imploding shock nor a plasma has been observed. This study concerns a physical explanation of the Single Bubble Sonoluminescence (SBSL),...

Dark energy and gravity: Reconsidering Newton’s law of universal gravitation

November 2015

In many theories of gravity, the cause of gravity is neither mentioned nor clarified yet. Dark energy, which makes the universe accelerate and push all matters in the universe apart, has repulsive power. Every matter in space is equally pressured by this repulsive force from all directions. It is assumed that this force comes from infinity in space. However, if matters exist nearby, the matters shield each other from...

A statistical analysis of Lorentz invariance in entropy

October 2015

After relativity was introduced by Einstein in 1905, several attempts were made to reformulate the other fields of physics to make them consistent with the postulates of Relativity. However, relativistic reformulation remains a bone of contention even today after over a hundred years since Einstein's epoch making papers. This is mainly due to seemingly conflicting yet consistent ways of defining the macroscopic...
