It is a logical fallacy: Bohr's hydrogen atom model is also "consistent" with modern quantum mechanics (and any of its interpretations), but it does not imply that Bohr's quantization rules are "consistent with experiments on Bell's inequality". Same with your sonons, sorry.<br /><br />No amount of interpretation or "futher study" can reconcile a fluid mechanics model of many electrons with the observed behavior of a helium atom, because there is no room for many-particle coherencies (aka entanglement, configuration interaction, Shcrodinger dynamics in Fock space, quantum correlation or any other name you assign). <br /><br />Ability to reproduce non-locality of a single-particle wave and "phenomena corresponding to those of quantum mechanics, including single-slit diffraction, double-slit diffraction, quantized energy levels and tunneling through a barrier" does not bring you any closer to resolution of fundamental inconsistencies clearly stated in my post.<br />Vyacheslavs Kashcheyevshttps://www.blogger.com/profile/00564002910925601660noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-31452808.post-41413789988416164692013-02-06T04:12:50.183+02:002013-02-06T04:12:50.183+02:00Thank you for your interest in the paper.

I hope the following comments are helpful.<br /><br />Cramer's transactional interpretation of quantum mechanics is consistent with experiments on Bell's inequality, as is Mead's adaptation of it. Both of these approaches are referenced in the sonon paper, together with a discussion of why the motion of sonons is consistent with them. <br /><br />The underlying reason for the consistency is that Euler's equation is time reversal symmetric. Cramer's model makes use of the same time reversal symmetry. It might be thought unsatisfactory to rely on this property, which is why we suggest the alternative hypothesis, that it may be possible to interpret the sum of the advanced and retarded solutions in terms of a spacelike function. When I presented the paper to fluid dynamicists at Warwick recently, they were surprised there was any problem with there being non-local motions as a result of Euler's equation (which in turn surprised me because the equation itself is, strictly speaking, completely local). Nevertheless, this is an open suggestion regarding an interpretation. The motion itself is consistent with experiments on Bell's inequality for the reason described above. <br /><br />Regarding the fine structure constant, this constant characterizes the strength of the Coulomb force, which is the definition used in the calculation.<br /><br />Regarding the other matters you raise, these might be areas for further study.<br />Robert Bradyhttp://www.cl.cam.ac.uk/~rmb4/sonons/sonons.htmlnoreply@blogger.com
