4th Vigier Symposium

Papers may still be accepted after Sept 1st; but may not appear on program until arrival in Paris
I will be in Paris from 9 Sept on; & no updates to web may occur after 8th unless I learn how to do that from France;
but I will check email at least once per day and be thus available...

Don't forget, those arriving by Saturday - (7 to 9 PM) wine & Cheese etc in Dept. Library Tour 22, etage 4,
take elevator or stairs to 4th floor & follow signs (get off Paris Metro at Jussieu)

The Conference meeting Hall will be Amphi 41A


The Search For Unity In Physics.
A Symposium in Celebration of
The 83rd Birthday of Mathematical Physicist Jean-Pierre Vigier


" ...the right hand side includes all that cannot be described so far in the Unified Field Theory, of course, not for a fleeting moment, have I had any doubt that such a formulation is just a temporary answer, undertaken to give General Relativity some closed expression. This formulation has been in essence nothing more than the theory of the gravitational field which has been separated in a somewhat artificial manner from the unified field of a yet unknown nature" Albert Einstein.


Mon - Fri, September 15th - 19th, 2003

    Scientific Program

    The scientific program will include invited and contributed lectures and poster presentations
    concerned with the topic Unification in Physics. These include:

    • The unification of electromagnetism and gravitation
    • The Unification of gravity and quantum theroy
    • Dirac domain gravity - extended theory suggests gravitation is not quantized at its most fundamental level.
    • Quantum Gravity ?
    • Inertia, Mach’s principle
    • Fundamentals and dynamics of the zero-point field
    • Extended particle and electromagnetic theory
    • The quantum potential and pilot wave
    • The fundamental nature of space and time
    • Nonlocality type I - spatial ; nonlocality type II - temporal ; nonlocality type III - unitarity
    • The nature of light, Einstein’s « nadelstralhung » and its propagation
    • Advanced EPR experimentation and theory
    • Vacuum techologies - theory and engineering
    • Nature of time : the nature of physical reality. Is Plato’s cave a correspondence limit ?
    • Compactification and dimensionality
    • The megaverse - post big bang cosmolgy and pertinant astrophysics.
    • T.O.E. or not T.O.E. ?
    • Causality and teleology : could a post Bigbang universe be a self-organized conscious universe?
    • Quantum gravity(do gravitons exist?)
    • The zero point field, and energy from the vacuum.
      (by special request of J-P Vigier)
    • Related Topics.
