Title Using smartphone photographs of the Moon to acquaint students with non-Euclidean geometry Type
Year 2021 Publication American Journal of Physics Abbreviated Journal (up) Am. J. Phys.
Volume 89 Issue 12 Pages 1079-1085
Keywords
Abstract Non-Euclidean geometry can be taught to students using astronomical images. By using photographs o the Moon taken with a smartphone through a simple telescope, we were able to introduce these concepts to high-school students and lower-level college students. We teach students how to calculate lengths of mountain ranges or areas of craters on the Moon's surface and introduce ideas of geodesics and spherical triangles. Students can see that accurate measurements cannot be

obtained using at geometry. Instead, by using three{dimensional curved geometry, estimates of lengths and areas can be computed with less than 4% error.

Title Phenomenological dynamics of COVID-19 pandemic: Meta-analysis for adjustment parameters Type
Year 2020 Publication Chaos Abbreviated Journal (up) Chaos
Volume 30 Issue 10 Pages 12 pp
Keywords
Abstract We present a phenomenological procedure of dealing with the COVID-19 (coronavirus disease 2019) data provided by government health agencies of 11 different countries. Usually, the exact or approximate solutions of susceptible-infected-recovered (or other) model(s) are obtained fitting the data by adjusting the time-independent parameters that are included in those models. Instead of that, in this work, we introduce dynamical parameters whose time-dependence may be phenomenologically obtained by adequately extrapolating a chosen subset of the daily provided data. This phenomenological approach works extremely well to properly adjust the number of infected (and removed) individuals in time for the countries we consider. Besides, it can handle the sub-epidemic events that some countries may experience. In this way, we obtain the evolution of the pandemic without using any a priori model based on differential equations.

Title Can gravitation accelerate neutrinos? Type
Year 2013 Publication Classical And Quantum Gravity Abbreviated Journal (up) Class. Quantum Gravity
Volume 30 Issue 2 Pages 10 pp
Keywords
Abstract The Lagrangian equations of motion for massive spinning test particles (tops) moving on a gravitational background using general relativity are presented. The paths followed by tops are nongeodesic. An exact solution for the motion of tops on a Schwarzschild background which allows for superluminal propagation of tops is studied. It is shown that the solution becomes relevant for particles with small masses, such as neutrinos. This general result is used to calculate the necessary condition to produce superluminal motion in part of the trajectory of a small mass particle in a weak gravitational field. The condition for superluminal motion establishes a relation between the mass, energy and total angular momentum of the particle.

Title Spinning massive test particles in cosmological and general static spherically symmetric spacetimes Type
Year 2014 Publication Classical And Quantum Gravity Abbreviated Journal (up) Class. Quantum Gravity
Volume 31 Issue 8 Pages 21 pp
Keywords exact solution; conformally flat spacetimes; spinning massive particle; cosmological spacetimes
Abstract A Lagrangian formalism is used to study the motion of a spinning massive particle in Friedmann-Robertson-Walker and Godel spacetimes, as well as in a general Schwarzschild-like spacetime and in static spherically symmetric conformally flat spacetimes. Exact solutions for the motion of the particle and general exact expressions for the momenta and velocities are displayed for different cases. In particular, the solution for the motion in spherically symmetric metrics is presented in the equatorial plane. The exact solutions are found using constants of motion of the particle, namely its mass, its spin, its angular momentum, and a fourth constant, which is its energy when the metric is time-independent, and a different constant otherwise. These constants are associated to Killing vectors. In the case of the motion on the Friedmann-Robertson-Walker metric, a new constant of motion is found. This is the fourth constant which generalizes previously known results obtained for spinless particles. In the case of general Schwarzschild-like spacetimes, our results allow for the exploration of the case of the Reissner-Nordstrom-(Anti) de Sitter metric. Finally, for the case of the conformally flat spacetimes, the solution is explicitly evaluated for different metric tensors associated to a universe filled with static perfect fluids and electromagnetic radiation. For some combination of the values of the constants of motion the particle trajectories may exhibit spacelike velocity vectors in portions of the trajectories.

Title Spinning particles coupled to gravity and the validity of the universality of free fall Type
Year 2017 Publication Classical And Quantum Gravity Abbreviated Journal (up) Class. Quantum Gravity
Volume 34 Issue 11 Pages 8 pp
Keywords spin-gravity coupling; spinning massive particle; Lagrangian description
Abstract Recent experimental work has determined that free falling Rb-87 atoms on Earth, with vertically aligned spins, follow geodesics, thus apparently ruling out spin-gravitation interactions. It is showed that while some spinning matter models coupled to gravitation referenced to in that work seem to be ruled out by the experiment, those same experimental results confirm theoretical results derived from a Lagrangian description of spinning particles coupled to gravity constructed over forty years ago. A proposal to carry out (similar but) different experiments which will help to test the validity of the universality of free fall as opposed to the correctness of the aforementioned Lagrangian theory, is presented.

Title Do electromagnetic waves always propagate along null geodesics? Type
Year 2017 Publication Classical And Quantum Gravity Abbreviated Journal (up) Class. Quantum Gravity
Volume 34 Issue 20 Pages 12 pp
Keywords electromagnetic waves; curved spacetime; non-null geodesics
Abstract We find exact solutions to Maxwell equations written in terms of fourvector potentials in non-rotating, as well as in Gdel and Kerr spacetimes. We show that Maxwell equations can be reduced to two uncoupled secondorder differential equations for combinations of the components of the four-vector potential. Exact electromagnetic waves solutions are written on given gravitational field backgrounds where they evolve. We find that in non-rotating spherical symmetric spacetimes, electromagnetic waves travel along null geodesics. However, electromagnetic waves on Gdel and Kerr spacetimes do not exhibit that behavior.

Title Unification of massless field equations solutions for any spin Type
Year 2022 Publication Epl Abbreviated Journal (up) Epl
Volume 137 Issue 2 Pages 24001
Keywords QUANTIZATION
Abstract A unification in terms of exact solutions for massless Klein-Gordon, Dirac, Maxwell, Rarita-Schwinger, Einstein, and bosonic and fermionic fields of any spin is presented. The method is based on writing all of the relevant dynamical fields in terms of products and derivatives of pre-potential functions, which satisfy the d'Alembert equation. The coupled equations satisfied by the pre-potentials are non-linear. Remarkably, there are particular solutions of (gradient) orthogonal pre-potentials that satisfy the usual wave equation which may be used to construct exact non-trivial solutions to Klein-Gordon, Dirac, Maxwell, Rarita-Schwinger, (linearized and full) Einstein and any spin bosonic and fermionic field equations, thus giving rise to a unification of the solutions of all massless field equations for any spin. Some solutions written in terms of orthogonal prepotentials are presented. Relations of this method to previously developed ones, as well as to other subjects in physics are pointed out.

Title New non-linear modified massless Klein-Gordon equation Type
Year 2017 Publication European Physical Journal C Abbreviated Journal (up) Eur. Phys. J. C
Volume 77 Issue 11 Pages 5 pp
Keywords
Abstract The massless Klein-Gordon equation on arbitrary curved backgrounds allows for solutions which develop “tails” inside the light cone and, therefore, do not strictly follow null geodesics as discovered by DeWitt and Brehme almost 60 years ago. A modification of the massless Klein-Gordon equation is presented, which always exhibits null geodesic propagation of waves on arbitrary curved space-times. This new equation is derived from a Lagrangian which exhibits current-current interaction. Its non-linearity is due to a self-coupling term which is related to the quantum mechanical Bohm potential.

Title Non-geodesic circular motion of massive spinning test bodies around a Schwarzschild field in the Lagrangian theory Type
Year 2018 Publication European Physical Journal C Abbreviated Journal (up) Eur. Phys. J. C
Volume 78 Issue 10 Pages 7 pp
Keywords
Abstract Recent interest on studying possible violations of the Equivalence Principle has led to the development of space satellite missions testing it for bodies moving on circular orbits around Earth. This experiment establishes that the validity of the equivalence principle is independent of the composition of bodies. However, the internal degrees of freedom of the bodies (such as spin) were not taken into account. In this work, it is shown exactly that the circular orbit motion of test bodies does present a departure from geodesic motion when spin effects are not negligible. Using a Lagrangian theory for spinning massive bodies, an exact solution for their circular motion is found showing that the non-geodesic behavior manifests through different tangential velocities of the test bodies, depending on the orientation of its spin with respect to the total angular momentum of the satellite. Besides, for circular orbits, spinning test bodies present no tangential acceleration. We estimate the difference of the two possible tangential velocities for the case of circular motion of spinning test bodies orbiting Earth.

Title Correspondence between dark energy quantum cosmology and Maxwell equations Type
Year 2019 Publication European Physical Journal C Abbreviated Journal (up) Eur. Phys. J. C
Volume 79 Issue 9 Pages 5 pp
Keywords
Abstract A Friedmann-Robertson-Walker cosmology with dark energy can be modelled using a quintessence field. That system is equivalent to a relativistic particle moving on a two-dimensional conformal spacetime. When the quintessence behaves as a free massless scalar field in a Universe with cosmological constant, the quantized version of that theory can lead to a supersymmetric Majorana quantum cosmology. The purpose of this work is to show that such quantum cosmological model corresponds to the Maxwell equations for electromagnetic waves propagating in a medium with specific values for its relative permittivity and relative permeability. The form of those media parameters are calculated, implying that a Majorana quantum cosmology can be studied in an analogue electromagnetic system.

Title Casimir force induced by electromagnetic wave polarization in Kerr, Godel and Bianchi-I spacetimes Type
Year 2020 Publication European Physical Journal C Abbreviated Journal (up) Eur. Phys. J. C
Volume 80 Issue 11 Pages 7 pp
Keywords
Abstract Electromagnetic waves propagation on either rotating or anisotropic spacetime backgrounds (such as Kerr and Gödel metrics, or Bianchi�I metric) produce a reduction of the magnitude of Casimir forces between plates. These

curved spacetimes behave as chiral or birefringent materials producing dispersion of electromagnetic waves, in such a way that right� and left�circularly polarized light waves propagate with different phase velocities. Results are explicitly calculated for discussed cases. The difference on the wavevectors of the two polarized electromagnetic waves produces an abatement of a Casimir force which depends on the interaction between the polarization of electromagnetic

waves and the properties of the spacetime.

Abstract We report accelerating diffusive solutions to the diffusion equation with a constant diffusion tensor.

We show the diffusive accelerating behavior for one-dimensional systems, as well as for a general three-dimensional case. We also construct a modulated modified form of the diffusion solution that retains the accelerating features.

This effect appears for certain kinds of self-interactions only, for different forms of potentials, and even for the massive case.

Title Class of Exact Solutions for a Cosmological Model of Unified Gravitational and Quintessence Fields Type
Year 2017 Publication Foundations Of Physics Abbreviated Journal (up) Found. Phys.
Volume 47 Issue 7 Pages 887-896
Keywords Quintessence; Exact solution; Unification of geometry and dark matter
Abstract A new approach to tackle Einstein equations for an isotropic and homogeneous Friedmann-Robertson-Walker Universe in the presence of a quintessence scalar field is devised. It provides a way to get a simple exact solution to these equations. This solution determines the quintessence potential uniquely and it differs from solutions which have been used to study inflation previously. It relays on a unification of geometry and dark matter implemented through the definition of a functional relation between the scale factor of the Universe and the quintessence field. For a positive curvature Universe, this solution produces perpetual accelerated expansion rate of the Universe, while the Hubble parameter increases abruptly, attains a maximum value and decreases thereafter. The behavior of this cosmological solution is discussed and its main features are displayed. The formalism is extended to include matter and radiation.

Abstract A hot relativistic fluid is viewed as a collection of quantum objects that represent interacting elementary particles. We present a conceptual framework for deriving nonlinear equations of motion obeyed by these hypothesized objects. A uniform phenomenological prescription, to affect the quantum transition from a corresponding classical system, is invoked to derive the nonlinear Schrodinger, Klein-Gordon, and Pauli-Schrodinger and Feynman-GellMaan equations. It is expected that the emergent hypothetical nonlinear quantum mechanics would advance, in a fundamental way, both the conceptual understanding and computational abilities, particularly, in the field of extremely high energy-density physics.

Title The contribution of magnetic monopoles to the ponderomotive force Type
Year 2019 Publication Journal Of Physics A-Mathematical And Theoretical Abbreviated Journal (up) J. Phys. A-Math. Theor.
Volume 52 Issue 25 Pages 13 pp
Keywords plasma waves; magnetic monopoles; ponderomotive force
Abstract When magnetic monopoles are assumed to exist in plasma dynamics, the propagation of electromagnetic waves is modified as Maxwell equations acquire a symmetrical structure due to the existence of electric and magnetic charge and current densities. This work presents a theoretical exploration on how far we can push the limits of a plasma theory under the presence of magnetic monopoles. In particular, we study the modification of ponderomotive forces in a plasma composed by electric and magnetic charges. We show that the general ponderomotive force on this plasma depends non-trivially on the magnetic monopoles, through the slow temporal and spatial variations of the electromagnetic field amplitudes. The magnetic charges introduce corrections even if the plasma is unmagnetized. Also, it is shown that the magnetic monopoles also experience a ponderomotive force due to the electrons. This force is in the direction of propagation of the electromagnetic waves.

Keywords magnetized plasmas; plasma waves
Abstract Explicitly covariant dispersion relations for a variety of plasma waves in unmagnetized and magnetized plasmas are derived in a systematic manner from a fully covariant plasma formulation. One needs to invoke relatively little known invariant combinations constructed from the ambient electromagnetic fields and the wave vector to accomplish the program. The implication of this work applied to the self- induced transparency effect is discussed. Some problems arising from the inconsistent use of relativity are pointed out.
