Manfried Faber (Vienna): About the influence of gravitational waves on circular moving topological solitons with long range interaction

Ort:  Raum 218, Währinger Str. 17, 2. Stock

The majority of physicists wants to quantize gravity. To unify gravity and particle physics there is another possibility, a geometrization of particle physics. We will present some ideas in this direction. I will give some short overview on a simple model of rotating Dreibeins. This model has four types of stable topological solitons differing in two topological quantum numbers which we identify with electric charge and spin. The vacuum has a two-dimensional degeneracy leading to two types of massless excitations, characterised by a topological quantum number which could have a physical equivalent in the photon number. Inspired by the silicon oil drop experiment of Yves Couder we follow the idea that a subquantum medium could influence classical solitons on their path and lead to quantum mechanics. Under this point of view we investigate the influence of a gravitational wave background on particles in circular motion. Based on joint work with Martin Suda.
