I don't bother here about what is beyond the infinite, Cantor has done that with the theory of transfinite numbers. In the integer domain, if the next integer after N is defined as N+1, that is, the new value of N is the old one and one: N:=N+1 then I have pointed out that N+ 1/2 (or any fraction not giving an integer) is a definition of the infinite. For real numbers, i from the complex field is a representation of the infinite. Now, quantum mechanics uses indeed complex numbers and more than one century ago, Hamilton build the next number field, the quaternions. So, some have jumped to a quaternionic form of QM. Assume someone make an experiment giving a proof that quaternionic quantum mechanics is real, what can we say? A complex number can be written as a 2X2 matrix, in the same way, a quaternion can be put as a 4X4 matrix, there are no complex-like numbers in the 3X3 matrix domain. Are all 2X2 matrix the picture of a complexe? the answer is no, there are the so called zero divisors. The square of a ZD is zero, even if ZD is not 0. there is a simple example, with "a", any real number: 0 a 0 0 Such a matrix is a definition of an infinite for the complexes. If there is some physics with the larger quaternions, then there will be with the simpler infinite. You can then use all the power of Cantor set theory to extend classical QM in the transfinite domain. Another similar possibility as pointed out before is to build the transfinite classical mechanics. Why would it work? Simply, because classical mechanics is build to work in 3 dimensions and that we know of an extension working in 4, namely Special Relativity. Any SR element taken in isolation and thrown in classical mechanics will form an infinite for it. The first consequence would be to introduce an endless set of different spaces: Beyond the "basic" space E, there will be the function space E*, the operator space E**, ... There is a space e' whose the function space e'* is E, this is the fiber bundle space. There is a space e" whose the operator space is E, this is the Green's functions space, and so on. A system X can be described at a time t by a so-called "state vector" V. At the next instant it will be described by another state vector W. You can think of V and W as vectors in the phase space ( space of coordinates and impulsion here). A matrix U links V and W, so that: W = UV. here, U is defined on the E** operator space. Now a weird question: What about a matrix T such that: WT = V ? Beware: in most cases the matrix product don't commute: WU is different of UW for example. Here, T acts "on the other side", in fact it is the inverse of an operator, that is a green function. What I have done here? Using the fact that classical physics can be extended into Special Relativity, I have used that fact to predict an infinite version of classical mechanics, the first effect being the creation of an endless set of spaces. I have then used the operator space to define the flowing of time. Then using the opposite space, the one of Green's functions, I have built a time reversal "anti-operator". Ready to banking on anti-Green operators? :-) Yvan Bozzonetti. --part1_1e5.b26c48f.2c1dd70c_boundary Content-Type: text/html; charset="US-ASCII" [ AUTOMATICALLY SKIPPING HTML ENCODING! ] Rate This Message: http://www.cryonet.org/cgi-bin/rate.cgi?msg=21984
