Apsidal Precession of the Outer Solar Planetary Orbits due to the Pioneer AnomalyNyambuya, G. G., 2017-01Despite the now common position that the Pioneer
anomaly is not a real gravitational effect but an effect due to the
on-board thermal recoil forces – for curiosity’s sake, we here take
the suggestion of Nyambuya (2015) where it has been assumed th[more...]
Spatially Varying Stellar Opacity ModelNyambuya, G. G., 2017-04Using Larson (1982)’s empirical law as a solid foundational basis for our central
thesis – for a plausible solution to the radiation problem of massive star formation, we
argue in favour of a spatially varying dust-and-gas opacity. This spatially v[more...]
209 Some Aspects of the New Microfinance Law in ZimbabweMakuyana, Tsanangurai, 2017-05This paper analyses the new Microfinance Act [Chapter 24: 29] in order to reveal the shortcomings in the law and to suggest
areas of possible improvement. The study was carried out using a purely desktop legal research method wherein a critical
rev[more...]
Salvaging Newton’s Corpuscular Theory of LightNyambuya, G. G.; Dube, A; Musosi, G., 2017-09As is well known – Newton’s corpuscularmodel of light can explain the Law of Reflection and Snell’s
Law of Refraction. Sadly and regrettably – its predictions about the speed of light in different mediums
runs contrary to experience. Because of thi[more...]
Plausible Dynamical Origins of Larson (1982)’s Empirical LawNyambuya, G. G., 2017-05We revisit Larson (1982)’s empirical law relating the maximum stellar mass and the
mass of the natal Molecular Cloud (MC). The aim of this journey back in-time is to
seek a fundamental origin of this law. Some researchers would want to believe that[more...]
Planck Radiation Formula for Massive PhotonsNyambuya, G. G., 2017-04Having demonstrated in earlier readings (Nyambuya, 2014, 2017) that massive photons should – inprinciple;
exist without any such problems as (1) violation of gauge symmetry, (2) they being short lived,
(3) they being short ranged, (4) they having a[more...]
On the Fundamental Theoretical Foundations of Newton’s Law of CoolingNyambuya, G. G., 2017-04Unlike the famous Stefan-Boltzmann Law (SBL),
one can safely say that Newton (1700)’s Law of Cooling
(NCL) is without any fundamental theoretical foundations
and that – no importance has been placed to seek the most
fundamental basis of this law.[more...]
Light Speed Barrier as a Cosmic Curtain Separating the Visible and Invisible WorldsNyambuya, G. G., 2017-01We argued earlier from a physical and number theoretic standpoint that an upper bound speed
limit such as the speed of light implies the existence of a lower limit to the duration of events in the
Universe [16]. Consequently, this leads to a minimu[more...]
Generalised Maxwell’s Equations Under the Coulomb GaugeNyambuya, G. G., 2017-02We provide amuch simpler proof to Hera’s Existence Theorem and using excerpts fromthe arguments
provided in the our alternative proof, we demonstrate that one can safely add a term to Maxwell’s
equations whereby one obtains a much more general set [more...]
A review of the impact of radiographers’ role in radiographic interpretationTityiwe, Josephine .S.; Crofts, Gillian, 2012-11The study sought to establish the impact of role extension by radiographers into interpreting plain x-ray images. The main objectives are of the study were to review evidence on radiographers role development in radiographic reporting and to synthesi[more...]
High Energy Photons as Product Superposed Massive Particle-Antiparticle Pairs Paper (III)Nyambuya, G. G., 2016-09-19Our present understanding as revealed to us from Einstein’s Special Theory of Relativity (STR) and experimental philosophy, informs us that a massive particle can never ever attain the light speed barrier: c = 2.99872354 × 108 ms−1. Massive particles[more...]
Lorentz Symmetry and the Curved Spacetime Dirac EquationsNyambuya, G. G., 2016Abstract In a part of our previous works, we have argued (suggested) that it should – in-principle – be possible for a massive particle to travel at the vacuum speed of light c if it rest-mass is a function of momentum. In-principle, this allows one [more...]
On the Fundamental Origins of the Dirac EquationNyambuya, G. G., 2016Despite its great success in explaining the physical world as we know it, the fundamental origins of the Dirac equation remains for the most part, enshrouded in deep mystery. What are the fundamental origins of this beautiful equation? To begin with,[more...]
On the Accelerated Expansion of the Universe and the Preponderance of Matter over Antimatter.Nyambuya, G. G., 2016-04The original Dirac equation is modified in the simplest imaginable and most trivial manner to
include a universal all-pervading and all-permeating Cosmic Four Vector Field (CFVF), μ. This
CFVF leads to a modified Dirac equation that violates all t[more...]
Dirac Wavefunction as a 4 × 4 Component Function.Nyambuya, G. G., 2016-04Since it was discovered some 84 years ago, the Dirac equation is understood to admit 4 × 1 com-
ponent wavefunctions. We demonstrate here that this same equation does admit 4 × 4 component
wavefunctions as-well.[more...]
