Relative Metrics and Physical Models for Non-Local Particles

Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 162)


A presentation is made that attempts to find a meaning and a physical representation for non-local particles. This is based on how the space metric can be considered as a relative concept so that its form and specification may be different for different observers of the same spatial arena. The non-local particles are limiting forms for toroids and are thus one-dimensional rings representing the toroidal half wavelength elements of dipole radiation which are considered as discrete entities. They are candidates for the role of hidden variables. In the so called electromagnetic rest frame these rings can according to relative metrics be local particles. This may resolve some of the QM and EPR problems.
