I have read today this very interesting paper: “Electron Structure, Ultra-Dense Hydrogen and Low Energy Nuclear Reactions”, published on September 30 2018 by Antonino Oscar Di Tommaso ( Università Degli Studi di Palermo, Department of Energy, Information Engineering and Mathematical Models ) and by Giorgio Vassallo ( Università degli Studi di Palermo, Department of Industrial and Digital Innovation ).
Here are elements that can help the theory we are working on: Zitterbewegung of electrons that obey the Dirac equation when in rapid motion can act as catalizers of virtual particles and antiparticles when the T of the field reaches their mass.
Here is the link of this very interesting paper:
Here is the abstract to the paper:
In this paper, a simple Zitterbewegung electron model, proposed in a previous work, is presented from
a different perspective that does not require advanced mathematical concepts. A geometric-electromagnetic
interpretation of mass, relativistic mass, De Broglie wavelength, Proca, Klein-Gordon and Aharonov-Bohm
equations in agreement with the model is proposed. Starting from the key concept of mass-frequency equiv-
alence a non-relativistic interpretation of the 3.7 keV deep hydrogen level found by J. Naudts is presented.
According to this perspective, ultra-dense hydrogen can be conceived as a coherent chain of bosonic
electrons with protons or deuterons at center of their Zitterbewegung orbits. The paper ends with some
examples of the possible role of ultra-dense hydrogen in some aneutronic low energy nuclear reactions.
