I have been exploring a possibility and wanted to know what others thoughts were here. I have been trying to mathematically compose a theory which treats the very beginning of space (which according to current belief would involve a time dimension) as being highly unstable due to the uncertainty regarding to matter and space between particles. In short, there was little to no space at all in the beginning, meaning that particles where literally stacked up on top of each. This completely violates the uncertainty principle and I conjecture it caused ''space to grow exponentially'' between particles to allow them degrees of freedom and to bring a halt to the violation of the quantum mechanical principle.

Of course, how do you speak about space or even time if niether existed fundamentally? Fotini Markoupoulou has been using a special model. In her recent idea's, she believes that space is not fundamental.

In her model, simply put, particles are represented by points which are nodes which can be on or off, which represents whether the nodes are actually interacting. Only at very high temperatures, spacetime ceases to exist and many of us will appreciate this as Geometrogenesis. The model also obeys the Causal Dynamical Triangulation which is a serious major part of quantum loop gravity theory which must obey the triangle inequality in some spin-state space. Spin state spaces may lead to models we can develop from the Ising Model or perhaps even Lyapanov Exponential which measures the seperation of objects in some Hilbert spaces preferrably. We may in fact be able to do a great many things.

Heisenberg uncertainty is a form of the geometric Cauchy Schwarz inequality law and this might be a clue to how to treat spacetime so unstably at very early beginnings when temperatures where very high.

http://www.scribd.com/doc/15501464/CauchySchwarz-Inequality-and-Heisenbergs-Uncertainty-Principle

Since Markoupoulou's work is suggesting that particles exist on Hilbert Spaces in some kind of special sub-structure before the emergence of geometry, then now I can approach my own theory and answer it in terms of the uncertainty principle using the Cauchy-Shwartz inequality because from this inequality one can get the triangle inequality.

So, this is my idea. Space and time emerged between particles because particles could not be allowed to infinitely remain confined so close to other particles, that the uncertainty forbid it and created degrees of freedom in the form of the vacuum we see expanding all around us.

I'll write up some math later.

well this took me a while to write out!!



So let me explain how this model works. First of all, it seems best to note that in most cases we are dealing with ''three neighbouring points'' on what I call a Fotini graph. Really, the graph has a different name and is usually denoted with something like 67d9dfc543365cc29937e78364f20fd1.gif and is sometimes called the graphical tensor notation. In our phase space, we will be dealing with a finite amount of particles 865c0c0b4ab0e063e5caa3387c1a8741.gif and 363b122c528f54df4a0446b6bab05515.gif but asked to keep in mind that the neighbouring particles are usually seen at a minimum three and that each particle should be seen as a configuration of spins - this configuration space is called the spin network. I should perhaps say, that to any point, there are two neighbours.

Of course, as I said, we have two particles in this model 5270ae675fac24f97e172dcd9b18fa92.gif, probably defined by a set of interactions 304bf5fd684b91db8e6ff1cd55f1e6d5.gif (an approach Fotini has made in the form of on-off nodes). In my approach we simply define it with an interaction term:

49a73406444db2d37e7d394807091029.gif

I have found it customary to place a coupling constant here b2f5ff47436671b6e533d8dc3614845d.gif for any constant forces which may be experienced between the two distances made in a semi-metric which mathematicians often denote as 001e37a6336dbdddd5ac30dfc8964b0d.gif.

If eaf053d56d4d49feb8483bf446460cf8.gif are adjacent vertices and 67d9dfc543365cc29937e78364f20fd1.gif is the set of edges in our phase space, (to get some idea of this space, look up casual triangulation and how particles would be laid out in such a configuration space), then

74c5e3d1589b24a80f2a5ba7c8b7b557.gif

It so happens, that Fotini's approach will in fact treat 67d9dfc543365cc29937e78364f20fd1.gif as assigning energy to a graph

ef0dbebe1bbcc582fccd111f9cac0038.gif

which most will recognize as an expection value. The Fotini total state spin space is

8355b980fa2b394f50142be8533f21a6.gif

Going back to my interaction term, the potential energy between particles 5270ae675fac24f97e172dcd9b18fa92.gif or all 8d9c307cb7f3c4a32822a51922d1ceaa.gif-particles due to pairwise interctions involves a minimum of 7f5563ce48a98accc561ec2dad85c27c.gif contributions and you will see this term in Fotini's previous yet remarkably simple equation.

c42dfffda81f5f576ce3c6315b9fd1d3.gif is the complete graph on the 8d9c307cb7f3c4a32822a51922d1ceaa.gif - vertices in a Fotini Graph i.e. the graph in which there is one edge connecting every pair of vertices so there is a total of 5421c624cf38bc502c737ff9ab76d32e.gif edges and each vertex has a degree of freedom corresponding to 3170312fb7ad6352e17c20192a785d84.gif.

Thus we will see that to each vertex abf01c5212f571d9f8a5f75504b82d08.gif there is always an associated Hilbert space and I construct that understanding as

2ac4dd9be3f468645ca06abece4dd09e.gif

From here I construct a way to measure these spin states in the spin network such that we are still speaking about two particles 5270ae675fac24f97e172dcd9b18fa92.gif and by measuring the force of interaction between these two states as

3bafb3c0c13e770378ae5c8625e090d7.gif

where the 5f569369b46d07ce59b79e4d0ccc98a7.gif is the unit length. The angle between two spins in physics can be calculated as

327941882acc5bf11fde00279f1c3c02.gif

Thus my force equation can take into respect a single spin state, but denoted for two particles 5270ae675fac24f97e172dcd9b18fa92.gif as we have been doing, it can describe a small spin network

517b61cf36361b99619921d88e94483e.gif

with a magnetic coefficient c9faf6ead2cd2c2187bd943488de1d0a.gif on the spin structure of the equation and 2fa48b556a60134aca6a409f2e6c60b4.gif is the unit matrix.

I now therefore a new form of the force equation I created with an interaction term, as I came to the realization that squaring everything would yield (with our spin states)

216cf1ede678235f68bec5b5077c9e73.gif

059c6aaf275ac0dd218613c16bfce7dd.gif

Sometimes it is customary to represent the matrix in this form:

4858982d98f204ce2921830d80e7ea2d.gif

As we have in our equation above. The entries here are just short hand notation for some mathematical tricks. Notice that there is a magnetic moment coupling on each state entry. We will soon see how you can derive the Larmor Energy from the previous equation.

Sometimes you will find spin matrices not with the magnetic moment description but with a gyromagnetic ratio, so we might have

91c3d03274b1631c9516b1fa96b0ac33.gif

The compact form of the Larmor energy is 4c4e3fead1a5d57bcacda441a749f52b.gif and the negative term will cancel due to the negative term in my equation

216cf1ede678235f68bec5b5077c9e73.gif

3cf9f4027f93ad34214330d8d4e03b58.gif

The 9a45d8caddcf0c22ad37816daae2096c.gif part of the Larmor energy is in fact more or less equivalent with the spin notation expression I have been using 3c4708c25eade8ff7c3f37d63a04e352.gif, except when we transpose this over to our own modified approach, we will be accounting for two spins.

We can swap our magnetic moment part for 30dd705a8bbfb8b12a075efb8b41acee.gif and what we end up with is a slightly modified Larmor Energy

daf1a5ee9aa7f88b4a1d47f03ecbfb28.gif

This is madness I can hear people shout? In the Larmor energy equation, we don't have fdaa9ce8fd3131f7bc0629490a1a3a63.gif we usually have 429fa32ac92e3ad314173ea2597e4df8.gif?

Well yes, this is true, but we are noticing something special. You see, 429fa32ac92e3ad314173ea2597e4df8.gif is really

6f9e6d2e0ce9390d565cb5f2921f5f1b.gif

This is the angle between two vectors. What is fdaa9ce8fd3131f7bc0629490a1a3a63.gif again? We know this, it calculates the angle between two spin vectors again as

7b493731d714b4338a8bcec554faaf34.gif

So by my reckoning, this seems perfectly a consistent approach.

Now that we have derived this relationship, it adds some texture to the original equations. If we return to the force equation, one might want to plug in some position operators in there - so we may describe how far particles are from each other by calculating the force of interaction - but as we shall see soon, if the lengths of the triangulation between particles are all zero, then this must imply the same space state, or position state for all your 8d9c307cb7f3c4a32822a51922d1ceaa.gif-particle system. We will use a special type of uncertainty principle to denote this, called the triangle inequality which speaks about the space between particles.

As distances reduce between particles, our interaction term becomes stronger as well, the force between particles is at cost of extra energy being required. Indeed, for two particles 5270ae675fac24f97e172dcd9b18fa92.gif to experience the same position 9dd4e461268c8034f5c8564e155c67a6.gif requires a massive amount of energy, perhaps something on the scale of the Planck Energy, but I have not calculated this.

In general, most fundamental interactions do not come from great distance and focus to the same point, or along the same trajectories. This actually has a special name, called Liouville's Theorem. Of course, particles can be created from a point, this is a different scenario. Indeed, in this work I am attempting to built a picture which requires just that, the gradual seperation of particles from a single point by a vacua appearing between them, forced by a general instability caused by the uncertainty principle in our phase space.

As I have mentioned before, we may measure the gradual seperation of particles using the Lyapunov Exponential which is given as

637ed7e50d5700b5f8e5aa0e41c013c5.gif

and for previously attached systems eminating from the same system, we may even speculate importance for the correlation function

cb579baa824159e6368edc287dfcdf8e.gif

where f623e75af30e62bbd73d6df5b50bb7b5.gif calculates the distance. Indeed, you may even see the graphical energy in terms maybe of the Ising model which measures the background energy to the spin state c047f1badb33778463ba62e788c24e7c.gif - actually said more correctly, the background energy

17bfa4c8c459ffb7abff6518ab0e683e.gif

acts as  coefficient of sigma zero. Thus the energy is represented by a Hamiltonian of spin states

ee8024edfcf5be9bdb9f92c5c035726e.gif

Now, moving onto the implications of the uncertainty principle in our triple intersected phase space (with adjacent edges sometimes given as f9167a84866403824a6b3eee0eed9f27.gif, there is a restriction that 0920e0507a24f5d7306067ef1984bd1b.gif is even and none is larger than the sum of the other two. A simpler way of trying to explain this inequality is by stating: 0cc175b9c0f1b6a831c399e269772661.gif must be less than or equal to a39f24a429c5d7327a4a07a68c1c51ad.gif, 92eb5ffee6ae2fec3ad71c777531578f.gif less than or equal to b778743b8bfe44752a09fad05f764d3b.gif, and 4a8a08f09d37b73795649038408b5f33.gif less than or equal to 65c884f742c8591808a121a828bc09f8.gif.

It actually turns out that this is really a basic tensor algebra relationship of the irreducible representions of 8b55726e60946b1cb4e35f40e89cf52b.gif according to Smolin. If each length of each point is necesserily zero, then we must admit some uncertainty (an infinite degree of uncertainty) unless some spacetime appeared appeared between each point. Indeed, because each particle at the very first instant of creation was occupied in the same space, we may presume the initial conditions of BB were highly unstable. This is true within the high temperature range and can be justified by applying a strong force of interactions in my force equation. The triangle inequality is at the heart of spin networks and current quantum gravity theory.

For spins that do not commute ie, they display antisymmetric properties, there could be a number of ways of describing this with some traditional mathematics. One way will be shown soon.

Spin has close relationships with antisymmetric mathematical properties. An interesting way to describe the antisymmetric properties between two spins in the form of pauli matrices attached to particles 865c0c0b4ab0e063e5caa3387c1a8741.gif and 363b122c528f54df4a0446b6bab05515.gif we can describe it as an action on a pair of vectors, taking into assumption the vectors in question are spin vectors.

This is actually a map, taking the form of

981826288434925ec0cf80f8f44e7304.gif

This is amap of an action on a pair of vectors. In our case, we will arbitrarily chose these two to be Eigenvectors, derived from studying spin along a certain axis. In this case, our eigenvectors will be along the 9dd4e461268c8034f5c8564e155c67a6.gif and fbade9e36a3f36d3d676c1b808451dd7.gif axes which will always yield the corresponding spin operator.

9942b267e3092b2c3ee4387efa775681.gif

with an abuse of notation in my eigenvectors.

It is a 2-form (or bivector) which results in

c43d05a1271131f303c4d63dc7696b53.gif

This is a result where 65445646e7a531a2185d03b58b4d60e1.gif and 94006b2a5a7808d87aeae326cdebe770.gif do not commute.

Some of the equations are coming out as f(x) = x. These are obviously bogus. It is just that the latex here is extremely sensative.

Maybe, but I will give you a reserved answer. There are four types of dwarfs I know about, Brown Dwarfs, Red Dwarfs, White Dwarfs and Black Dwarfs. There is a denser object in the universe called a Neutron Star. It is believed that two Neutron Stars may spiral towards each other at near light speed and then crash together sending gravitationl ripples into space: the most likely by-product of the merge would be a black hole.

The reason why this is a reserved answer, is because Neutron Stars are a [lot more] denser than a Dwarf Planet. In short, it may be possible (but this is a guess) that they may not be dense enough to form black holes. Though, I believe I could be wrong and if two of these Dwarfs did spiral towards each other at fast speeds, they might.

Gamma particles are released by many nuclear processes. There are many processes I could speak about. Even your odd antiparticle will annihilate with gamma energy.

I don't know about the nucleic processes involved -- I'd need to look it up... But the gravitational forces will be very strong, it would be the main force which ''binds'' the mass together. On a smaller level, we can attribute the ''binding'' to the strong force. Then the electromagnetic forces. Gravity is only significant because we are talking about a body with a substantial density.

They don't fall into the sun directly because they are bound to follow geodesics around the sun - these are curvilinear paths.

@ "there was little to no space at all in the beginning, meaning that particles where literally stacked up on top of each other".

-> there was very much less time much further back, meaning that on 'big scale' the galaxies appeared closer and after much more time in the future, they appear further from each other. There was no beginning (of time). Spacetime had expanded because time is expanding. Leaves problems at 'particle scale'. But what if matter traverses a discrete space (an possible cause of uncertainty principle)? - > this makes it possible for paricles to be extremely close (in space) but never actualy stacked up and so  - from any refference t-point - in an infinity of time to past and future. + in curvature - no time, hence:

class discretespace($time) extends uncertaintyprinciple()
{
 if (HasCurvature())
     {
     DoesntExpandWithTime()
     }
   else
     {
      ExpandsWithTime() {class DistanceBetweenGalaxies($time) extends DistanceBetweenAnyPairOfObjectsWithMassBeyondTheGravityEffect($time) }
     }
}
this is where my intuition leads me regarding expansion, especialy including the odity of faster than light speed of expansion (C constant, time building up (exponentialy?) )

(please allow some time for me to be able to read your math, in the meantime, whats a good text-book for that? :)

Could time as a quantity expand exponentialy between any pair of refference points in time?

Language:

$x -> variable x
foo($bar) -> function foo, with function-argument $bar
class x() -> object property
