The RQM triangle: A paradigm for relativistic quantum mechanics

PDF Version Also Available for Download.

Description

A simple way to relate Lorentz transformations to a finite and discrete model of counter firings is presented. We first abstract from counter firings with finite resolution to rational fraction velocities and a finite step-length. Discrete Lorentz transformations and quantized rotations follow. These are encoded by three integers and a triangle with integer sides: the RQM Triangle. The double slit experiment allows us to observe quantized space steps and measure invariant step lengths for any particle in rational ratio to one such length for any convenient reference particle. A discrete version of the Mandelstam analysis of elastic and anelastic scattering … continued below

Description

A simple way to relate Lorentz transformations to a finite and discrete model of counter firings is presented. We first abstract from counter firings with finite resolution to rational fraction velocities and a finite step-length. Discrete Lorentz transformations and quantized rotations follow. These are encoded by three integers and a triangle with integer sides: the RQM Triangle. The double slit experiment allows us to observe quantized space steps and measure invariant step lengths for any particle in rational ratio to one such length for any convenient reference particle. A discrete version of the Mandelstam analysis of elastic and anelastic scattering is implied. The results fit naturally into the bit-string formalism used in earlier work.
