FERT-2012 Conference: Mathematicians and Physicists Searching for Explanations of Phenomena That Cannot Be Described by General Relativity
Moscow Bauman University and Research Institute of Hyper-complex Systems in Geometry and Physics held the International Conference “Finsler Extensions of Relativity Theory FERT-2012“.
Moscow (I-Newswire) July 2, 2012 - Moscow Bauman University and Research Institute of Hyper-complex Systems in Geometry and Physics held the International Conference “Finsler Extensions of Relativity Theory FERT-2012“. Mathematicians, theoretical physicists and experimenters from a dozen countries came together to discuss the modern ways to describe the space-time phenomena that cannot be explained by Einstein's theory of relativity.
According to some of the scientists, this could be done with the help of an unusual geometry which has Finsler (or more precisely, Berwald-Moor) metric. The suggestion of the metric of the type different than that accepted now can lead to the existence of fields that are principally different from four fundamental interactions known today.
The main difference of these so-called hyperbolic fields from the known ones is that they connect not the elementary particles but specific events or points of the four-dimensional space-time, the points in which the energy transforms from one form to another.
Here is what the organizers and participants say about these ideas and results:
Dmitry Pavlov, PhD, Director of RI HNGP, organizer of the Conference:
“New fields predicted by Finsler geometry are mathematically beautiful, simple and self-consistent. In this we see the promise of their existence not only on paper, but in reality as well. The experimental search for these hyperbolic fields (http://youtu.be/NrgxJzo7arc), started by our Institute, shows promising results. Now we are going to perform a detailed testing of Finsler analogues of Newton and Coulomb laws for singular point events. An important feature of them according to the theory is the dependence of their stresses on the first power of the interval between events.“
Sergey Siparov, Doctor of Sci., Professor:
„The equivalence theory (also known as anisotropic geometrodynamics) gives an example of another also geometrical approach to the GRT problems that reveal themselves on galactic scale. Now in order to explain the flat character of rotation curves of spiral galaxies and the essential excess of observed light refraction in the gravitational lenses over the theoretical predictions they introduce a huge amount of unobservable dark matter. In frames of new approach this is not needed. At the same time, there are several other phenomena like Tully-Fisher law, dynamics of globular clusters, and others for which simple explanations have been discovered. On the planetary system scale, the equivalence theory reduces to the GRT and reproduces all the known results. But on larger scales it can also affect the current cosmological picture, because it predicts the linear Hubble law on the base on tangential and not radial motion of the distant objects.“
Vladimirov Yuriy Sergeevich, Doctor of Sci., Professor, Vice-President of the Russian Gravitational Society:
“FERT conference and all the activities associated with it are very necessary and important. In my approach I'm moving from microworld to macroworld. While here they move in the opposite direction. It is important that these approaches supplement each other.“

About FERT-2012 Conference
The organizers are going to pay special attention to geometries with metric functions that have the More..form of symmetrical polynomials of four variables of degree three and four (Chernov and Berwald-Moor metrics). This is due to the fact that the quadratic form which is characteristic to the space-time of the Special Relativity (Minkowski metric) is, in certain bases, a symmetrical polynomial of four variables degree two. There is no doubt that all these three geometries are akin to each other, and this presumes the possibility to use them together and not separately for the physical applications.Less..
