GEOMETRICAL TESTS OF TWO HYPOTHESES

1) FRW Expanding universe (Big Bang)

Euclidean non-expanding universe with

z=(H/c)distance, as in local universe

(non-geometric cause of redshift)

slide3
Galaxy size and

surface brightness

Big Bang Prediction:

z~(z+1)F(z)

Euclidean non-expanding:

z is constant

Big Bang Prediction:

Surface brightness (ABMag)~1/(1+z)3

Euclidean non-expanding:

Surface brightness is constant

DATA SETS

HIGH z:

Medium Sample MIS

Spectroscopic z from SDSS

slide5
SAMPLE SELECTION

SB~1.5, at-galaxy  must be closely matched

SB~M0.6 , match M

Lower size cutoff 0.07” for Hubble, 1.8” for SDSS+GALEX, must match rz=R

Sufficient sample size

slide6
UNITS:

Absolute luminosity defined here as:

M=m(AB)-5 log z

Milky Way L= 1.5x1010Ls

M= 23.26

Surface brightness in magnitudes/arsec2

r=half light radius

SB=m+2.5 log(r2)

Milky Way SB= 24 magnitudes/arsec2

At z=6 SB for BB is down by 343

BIG BANG EVOLUTION HYPOTHESIS

GALAXIES ARE ACTUALLY HUNDREDS OF TIMES BRIGHTER

AND MUCH SMALLER

BUT THIS PRODUCES HYPOTHETICAL GALAXIES THAT ARE HAVE 40-100 TIMES THE SB OF ANY EXTANT GALAXIES AND ARE PHYSICALLY IMPOSSIBLE

slide22
SURFACE BRIGHTNESS DATA EXCLUDES BIG BANG GEOMETRY BUT IS AN EXCELLENT FIT TO EUCLIDEAN NON-EXPANDING GEOMETRY

Implications:

Observable universe is infinite in spatial and temporal extent

Redshift-distance relationship is non-geometric in origin. Laboratory test of relationship should be possible with modified LIGO

slide23
WHY DO WE NEED A NEW WORLD MODEL?

1) BB requires increasing numbers of hypothetical entities without observational evidence—inflation, non-baryonic matter, dark energy—and free parameters. Reduces predictive power.

2) BB violates well-confirmed physical laws—conservation of baryon number

slide24
3) Basic predictions BB makes

are contradicted by observation:

a) light element predictions are wrong-Li in particular

b) geometric–size, surface brightness—predictions wrong

c) age of universe is wrong—voids at least five times too old, high z galaxies are too old

d) Gaussian CBR is wrong

slide25
BASIC ASSUMPTIONS OF PLASMA COSMOLOGY

SINCE THE UNIVERSE IS NEARLY ALL PLASMA, ELECTROMAGNETIC FORCES ARE EQUAL IN IMPORTANCE WITH GRAVITATION

SINCE WE NEVER SEE EFFECTS WITHOUT CAUSES, WE HAVE NO REASON TO ASSUME AN ORIGIN IN TIME FOR THE UNIVERSE—AN EFFECT WITHOUT A CAUSE

SINCE EVERY PART OF THE UNIVERSE WE OBSERVE IS EVOLVING, WE ASSUME THAT THE UNIVERSE ITSELF IS EVOLVING AS WELL.

slide26
PLASMA SCALE INVARIANTS

VELOCITY IS SCALE INVARIANT

TIME SCALES AS LENGTH

1 Gy, 30kpc scales to

3s, 10 cm

slide27
PLASMA FILAMENTATION

AND STRUCTURE FORMATION

Pinch effect draws currents in plasma at all scales into force free filaments, concentrating matter

and magnetic fields

Gravitation acts on condensed matter in filaments to compress it further. As gravitational condensation rotates through filament field, new, smaller set of filaments set up.

Filaments act to drain angular momentum from condensation, allowing further compression.

slide29
LARGE SCALE STRUCTURE

Plasma filamentation model:

No time problem

Instability theory:

Filament Formation V=(m/M)c= 160km/s

Stable filament V=(m/M)3/4 c= 1070 km/s

Orbital velocity of condensed objects

160km/s

Plasma must be collisional

for gravitational condensation

nR=1019/cm2

slide31
PLASMA FOCUS AS LABORATORY MODEL FOR QUASARS

Model of quasars based on the dense plasma focus device show how dense, magnetically confined plasmoids (toroidal vortex) can produce tightly collimated beams of electrons and ions:

Good quantitative agreement with observations of density, velocity, B field, radius, radiation spectrum

slide35
GALACTIC PRODUCTION OF He, D

M = 1.8n-2

Intermediate mass stars

4

Produce He, very little CNO

Throughout proto-galaxy

He=.21-.23

p+p->d+3.3mb 2% of thermonuclear power

prediction (1989) 2.2x10-5

slide36
PLASMA MODEL OF CBR

CBR energy produced by first generation stars in galaxies

UV energy absorbed and thermalized by dust

microwave energy isotropized, thermalized by electrons in magnetized plasma filaments emitted by QSOs, AGNs, Herbig Haro objects

slide37
KEY PREDICTION OF PLASMA CBR MODEL:

universe not transparent at

>100-200 microns

Using IR-21cm correlation for 301 IR bright galaxies, we find evidence(1993)

for absorption at 8

Confirmed with 850 microns SCUBA data(SLUGS)

more confirmation wmap alignment with supercluster lieu observations of sz effect
More confirmation:

WMAP alignment with supercluster

Lieu observations of SZ effect

A Flux-Number Test of Absorption

For IR and optical sources ,excluding the brightest ones,

N~S-1.1

Implies fractal distribution N~D2.2 n~D-0.8

For radio sources, excluding the brightest ones,

N~S-0.9

S~D-2.44

Implies absorption A~D.44 compared with D.32 up to 300 Mpc

slide41
Today, virtually all financial and experimental resources in cosmology are devoted to big bang studies. Funding comes from only a few sources, and all the peer-review committees that control them are dominated by supporters of the big bang. As a result, the dominance of the big bang within the field has become self-sustaining, irrespective of the scientific validity of the theory.

To redress this, we urge those agencies that fund work in cosmology to set aside a significant fraction of their funding for investigations into alternative theories and observational contradictions of the big bang. To avoid bias, the peer review committee that allocates such funds could be composed of astronomers and physicists from outside the field of cosmology.
