Thermostring quantization.

An interpretation of strings as particles at finite temperatures [1]

      Zahid Zakir [2]

Abstract

     In a space-temperature configurational manifold an instantaneous temperature path of a point particle can be represented as a string of length L=1/kT (thermostring). The thermostring swepts a surface in the space-time-temperature manifold at its temporal evolution. The thermostring is closed, its points can be rearranged and the charge is distributed along the length. Some predictions of this method for statistical mechanics and string theories are discussed.

The theory of stochastic space-time.

2. Quantum theory of relativity[1]

Zahid Zakir [2]

Abstract

      Nelson’s stochastic mechanics is derived as a consequence of the basic physical principles such as the principle of relativity of observations and the invariance of the action quantum. The unitary group of quantum mechanics is represented as the transformations of the systems of perturbing devices. It is argued that the physical spacetime has a stochastic nature and that quantum mechanics in Nelson’s formulation correctly describes this stochasticity.

Gravitation as a Quantum Diffusion [1]

Zahid Zakir [2]

Abstract

      Inhomogeneous Nelson’s diffusion in flat spacetime with a tensor of diffusion can be described as a homogeneous one in a Riemannian manifold with this tensor of diffusion as a metric tensor. The influence of matter to the energy density of the stochastic background (vacuum) is considered. It is shown that gravitation can be represented as inhomogeneity of the quantum diffusion; the Einstein equations for the metrics can be derived as the equations for the corresponding tensor of diffusion.

The Theory of Stochastic Space-Time.

1. Gravitation as a Quantum Diffusion[1]

Zahid Zakir [2]

Abstract

The Nelson stochastic mechanics of inhomogeneous quantum diffusion in flat spacetime with a tensor of diffusion can be described as a homogeneous one in a Riemannian manifold where this tensor of diffusion plays the role of a metric tensor multiplied to the diffusion coefficient. It is shown that such diffusion accelerates both a sample particle and local inertial frames such that their mean accelerations do not depend on their mass. This fact, explaining the principle of equivalence, allows one to represent the curvature and gravitation as consequences of the inhomogeneity of the quantum fluctuations. In this diffusional treatment of gravitation it can be naturally explained the fact that the energy density of the instantaneous Newtonian interaction is negative defined (with respect to a point at spatial infinity).

Quantization of strings without anomaly in spacetime of arbitrary dimensionality

Zahid Zakir [1]

Abstract

       New method of C-symmetric quantization, strongly following to the restrictions of discrete symmetries of systems, is applied to quantization of closed boson strings. It is shown that the chiral symmetry restrictions exclude a zero-point energy of the string modes. It then leads to the theory of the relativistic strings without conformal anomaly, which can be quantized consistently in a spacetime of arbitrary dimensionality.

Quantization of relativistic fields without zero-point energy 

2. Vector and spinor fields

Zahid Zakir [1]

Abstract

     The new method of C- and CP-symmetric quantization of complex fields is applied for spinor, complex vector and electromagnetic fields. It is shown that the constraints imposed by requirements of discrete symmetries on bilinear products of creation-annihilation operators lead to operators of observables in a normal-ordered form without a zero-point energy and a zero-point charge.

Quantization of relativistic fields without zero-point energy 

1. A complex scalar field

Zahid Zakir [1]

Abstract

      The relativistic fields having opposite sign on frequency modes usually are represented as complex fields only with positive-frequency modes, but with global U(1) symmetry and a charge conjugation (C-symmetry). However, at conventional introduction of operators of antiparticles C-symmetry becomes broken and then a zero-point charge and a vacuum zero-point energy arises. The new method of quantization of relativistic fields without C-symmetry violation is developed. On an example of a complex scalar field it is shown that C-symmetry requirements impose such constraints on bilinear products of ladder operators which lead to new operator identities. They then allow to express the observables through charge-conjugate creation-annihilation operators at once in a normal-ordered form without the zero-point energy and the zero-point charge. It is shown that a self-interaction of a complex scalar field does not change the vacuum energy. As the invariant propagators of particles and antiparticles can be chosen the retarded and advanced propagators accordingly.

Quantization of complex harmonic oscillator and the zero-point energy vanishing effect

Zahid Zakir [1]

Abstract

      The system of two harmonic oscillators with different sign frequencies is presented as a positive-frequency oscillator with a complex generalized coordinate where there are a global U(1) symmetry and a charge conjugation symmetry (C-symmetry). It is shown that two pairs of ladder operators, appearing at the frequency decomposition of canonical variables, are not mutually charge-conjugate and their standard interpretation as operators of charge-conjugate quanta breaks the C-symmetry. Bilinear operator identities for the ladder operators are found allowed the theory to obey the C-symmetry restrictions and to express observables through the mutually charge-conjugate operators. These identities hold for C-symmetric interactions also. It is shown that C-symmetry eliminates a ground state zero-point charge and a zero-point energy. The uncertainty relations are generalized for non-hermitian canonical variables and it is shown that the charge-conjugation symmetric ground states do not quantized. It is shown that the C-symmetric interactions do not contribute to the ground state energy in all orders of perturbation theory.

Quantum field theory and experiments about vanishing of the zero-point vacuum energy

Zahid Zakir [1]

Abstract

     At quantization of relativistic fields the Hamiltonians symmetrized under the complex conjugate field operators lead to a zero-point vacuum energy. The standard recipe, introducing the operators of antiparticles, breaks the charge conjugation (C) symmetry. For the Hamiltonians unsymmetrical under the field operators at exact C-symmetry requirement the vacuum does not contain a zero-point energy and zero-point charge. The observable effects are described or as fluctuations of the physical vacuum with loop diagrams (Lamb shift), or as fluctuations of fields of real sources (Casimir effect). Both kind of vacuum fluctuations are created by the interaction Hamiltonians and they have no any relation to the zero-point fluctuations of (external) vacuum fields creating the zero-point vacuum energy in the free Hamiltonians. Therefore, in fact the known experiments exclude the existence of the zero-point fluctuations of the pure vacuum fields and the zero-point vacuum energy and for the relativistic fields allow one to use only Hamiltonians unsymmetrized under the complex conjugate field operators with unbroken C-symmetry.

Quantum field theory without divergences at a correct temporal integration

Zahid Zakir [1]

Abstract

      Quantum mechanical trajectories for particles or fields, especially in path integrals, have not temporal differentials and the path integrals are defined only on a finite slice time lattice. Therefore, in QFT all integrals on energy should be taken before turning to the limit of very small times when they are finite. The renormalizable theories are invariant under the dilatations of the time lattice slice. It is a new space-time symmetry extending the Poincaré group and it has been discovered earlier in the momentum representation as the renormgroup. Thus, quantum mechanics requires turning to small times only after summation over all alternatives, i.e. energy integrations in loops, and this fact leads to natural regularization of loop integrals without additional hypotheses. These justify all effective methods of regularization as various realizations of the natural temporal regularization following from the fractal nature of paths. The covariant Planck time appears as a smallest time interval due to the gravitational proper time dilation and redshift of proper frequencies near the Planck energy source. Therefore, the standard QFT with such covariant and finite regularization becomes mathematically rigorous and physically consistent.
