**Subject:** 223(2): The Basic Relativistic and Classical Hamiltonians, Free Particle

This gives some elementary revision of the basics of special relativity, stressing the fact that the hamiltonian and lagrangian for a free particle in special relativity are defined differently from those in classical theory. In classical theory the concept of rest energy, m c squared, does not exist. The classical limit is obtained from special relativity by v << c. The velocity v for planets in the solar system is much smaller than c, so the classical x theory applies to an excellent approximation. In the next note I will revise the effective potential method of Einsteinian general relativity (EGR), showing that it gives a completely erroneous result. It does not produce a precessing conical section at all. That alone should have resulted in the abandonment of EGR nearly a century ago. Finally the effective potential method of EGR will be adapted for the new theory: constrained Minkowski theory, whose classical limit is x theory. Very often in the multiply cross checked scholarship of AIAS we find that the basics have not been understood because they are not explained very well in textbooks. The UFT and background notes give voluminous and comprehensive detail not found elsewhere. I would not say that EGR is fraud, but it is meaningless dogma. |
