The gravitational model
of strong interaction is the model, in which strong interaction is
described by strong gravitation, the
action of the gravitational torsion field
and electromagnetic forces.
Contents

In elementary particle physics the generally accepted
model is the Standard model according to which strong interaction occurs on the
scale, not much greater than the size of atomic nuclei. In this case, there are
considered two different possible situations – strong interaction between
nucleons (or between other hadrons), and strong interaction in the matter of
hadrons. In the first case the pionnucleon Yukawa interaction is often used,
according to which the role of carriers of strong interaction between nucleons
is played by virtual pions and other mesons. In the
second case quantum chromodynamics (QCD) is involved, in which hadrons are
composed of quarks, there are two quarks in each meson, and three quarks in
baryons. Quarks interact by gluons and can not exist
outside hadrons in the free form. Except two or three valence quarks, a hadron
must contain gluon clouds surrounding quarks and seas of virtual particles such
as quarkantiquark and electronpositron pairs, W and Z bosons. In QCD gluons
are considered the carriers of strong interaction, and the interaction between
nucleons is treated as a residual effect of the quark gluon fields that goes
beyond hadrons. As a result, the forces between two nucleons must be much less
than the forces between the quarks inside these nucleons.
At present the description of strong interaction between
nucleons through virtual pions to some extent looks
archaic and does not seem satisfactory. For example, it is unclear at what
point between nucleons these virtual pions should
appear, what is the mechanism of their origin and subsequent action. How can
the momentum transfer from virtual pions either
attract nucleons, or repel them depending on the distance between the nucleons?
Due to what does the tensor component of nuclear forces, which is not purely
radial, arise? From a philosophical point of view, reduction of the interaction
between elementary particles to other elementary particles seems rather an
artificial device, than description of the essence of phenomena.
QCD also has its own problems analyzed in the model of quark quasiparticles. Among the
main problems are: introducing into the Standard theory many new unexplained
entities and adjustable parameters; considering interactions as point events
with quarks and bosons of point sizes and subsequent discrepancy in solutions;
unobservability of free quarks and gluons, indicating that they are
quasiparticles; color confinement as retention of color charge in hadrons, and
asymptotic freedom of quarks at short distances between them; different masses
of quarks with equal spins and two fixed values of the fractional elementary
charge; the reason for collapse of massive quarks; specification of
defragmentation method and hadronization of jets with obligatory conversion of
various color quarks into colorless hadrons; the origin of quantum numbers of
quarks, etc.
In the Standard model it is assumed that quarks, leptons,
W and Z bosons acquire mass through the
mechanism of spontaneous symmetry breaking and Higgs bosons. After that hadrons
consisting of quarks also become massive. If we proceed from the theory of Infinite Hierarchical Nesting of Matter, the
mass appears as an intrinsic property of material particles that occurs as a
result of Le Sage's theory of gravitation. ^{[1]} ^{[2]}
At the level of elementary particles strong gravitation influences the
scattered matter, forming objects, containing different amounts of substance.
Further, these objects evolve similarly to the main sequence stars, turning into lowmass particles like
nuons and in nucleons. According to the substantial neutron model, neutrons appear
first, and then protons and electrons emerge as a result of beta decay.
At
the level of stars neutron corresponds to a neutron star, proton corresponds to a magnetar, pions correspond to neutron
stars with minimum mass decaying in time, ^{[3]} and
nuons correspond to white dwarfs. ^{[4]}
Discreteness of masses of these objects is defined by a narrow range of masses,
in which formation of these objects is possible in the field of strong (or,
respectively, ordinary) gravitation according to the equation of their matter
state.
The reason of mass and its inertia in the general case is
interaction of gravitons with matter. This interaction leads to attraction of
bodies and to the concept of gravitational mass. At the same time, in case of
acceleration of bodies relative to the fluxes of gravitons inertial mass and
the corresponding inertial force appear. Taking into account the similarity of matter levels and SPФ symmetry, such description of
gravitation is universal for all levels of matter. Meanwhile, in general
relativity, mass is considered as the consequence of curvature of spacetime
around the matter and in elementary particle physics the Higgs mechanism is
introduced to describe the mass. As we can see, in the latter case,
representation of mass is ambiguous and depends strongly on the size and mass
of the objects.
The estimate of the mass and sizes of nucleons can be
obtained in the same way which was used in the study of properties of neutron
stars based on the principles of quantum mechanics. ^{[5]}
From comparison of the gravitational binding energy of the star and the quantum
mechanical energy of matter (expressed by Planck constant) we obtain formulas
for the mass and radius of the star. Similar formulas are used for nucleons as
the analogues of neutron stars. It turns out that the mass and radius of
nucleons are determined by quantum properties of their matter and depend on the
value of the strong gravitational constant.
For connection of the radius and mass of the proton the following formula is
obtained: ^{[6]}
where is
a constant depending on the properties of the proton matter.
The electromagnetic field, along with gravitational, is
the fundamental force field. Natural objects, containing matter at low density
and low energy of interaction, are generally neutral due to the compensation of
positive and negative charges of the matter. Charged objects occur when the carriers
of charge of a single sign are removed from (or added to) them. Characteristic
and widespread process is acquisition of a positive charge by the proton and
formation of a negatively charged electron in beta decay due to reactions of
weak interaction occurring in the neutron matter. The analysis of energies in
the proton shows that the proton charge has the maximum possible value when the
density of zero electromagnetic energy is comparable to the energy density of
strong gravitation. ^{[6]} Equality of the charge
of proton and electron follows from the nature of neutron beta decay and takes
place in every point of the Universe.
Secondary character of mass and charge of the electron in
the hydrogen atom with respect to the proton follows from substantial electron model. In particular,
the electron matter must have the charge equal to the charge of the proton, to
ensure electrical neutrality of the atom. At the same time the mass of the
electron must be of such value that its attraction to the nucleus in the strong
gravitational field must be equal to the electric force between the charges of
the nucleus and the electron. In addition, there are two almost identical
forces: repulsion of the charged matter of the electron cloud from itself, and
the centrifugal force of rotation. The sum of these four forces is zero in
stationary rotation of the electron cloud, which allows determining the strong
gravitational constant. In the process of nucleosynthesis of more massive atoms
from hydrogen atom each time interaction of neutrons, protons and electrons
takes place. It helps to understand the origin of the elementary charge and the
necessity to use it in elementary particle physics and in atomic physics as the
standard unit of charge. Thus, the origin of mass and charges of elementary
particles does not require introduction of hypothetical fields like the Higgs
field.
Since at the level of elementary particles the main force
is assumed strong gravitation, it
allows us to calculate the total energy of hadron of the nucleon type, which is
up to sign equal to the binding energy of the hadron matter: ^{[3]} ^{[6]}
Here for
objects like nucleons and neutron stars, is the strong gravitational constant,
and are the mass and radius of the hadron.
Relation (1) can be used to estimate approximately the
particle radius by its known mass, rewriting (1) in the form where and are the mass and radius of the proton. If we substitute the obtained radii
of the particles into (2), we shall obtain the gravitational binding energies
of the particles shown in the Table. ^{[6]}

The particle masses in Table are obtained by dividing the massenergy converted
from MeV to J, by the squared speed of light. The massenergy corresponds to
the rest energy in the special relativity, and is directly proportional to the
mass (see the mass–energy equivalence). In contrast to this, the total energy
of the particle is calculated by summing the potential energy of strong
gravitation and the internal kinetic energy of particle matter, the absolute
value of the total energy is equal to the binding energy or the energy required
to scatter the particle matter to infinity with zero velocity. According to the
Table the binding energy of pion matter in the strong gravitational field is
one order of magnitude less than the rest energy, which is the consequence of
low density of the pion matter.
The laws of conservation of energy and momentum in
reactions with elementary particles in the special theory of relativity are as
follows:
where before the interaction there are n particles, and
after the interaction the number of particles is m, and there is a possibility
that , and are corresponding mass and momentum of particles, is
the speed of light.
On the other hand, the energy balance can be written in
such a way as to explicitly include the change in the total energy of
particles: ^{[6]}
where is the
total energy of the kth particle in the field of
strong gravitation, is
the radius of the kth particle, is the kinetic energy of the kth particle in the special theory of relativity, and during
interaction the energy of strong gravitation can be released (or, conversely, be added) which is associated with change
in the radii and masses of particles, as well as the energy of the emerging
electromagnetic and neutrino emission .
According to the substantial
neutron model and the substantial
proton model, the difference between neutron and proton besides mass and
charge is mainly in the difference in their internal electromagnetic structure.
Thus, in neutron the space charge separation is assumed, the center of the
neutron is positively charged, and the shell is negative. The rotation of the
space charge creates a negative magnetic moment of neutron, directed opposite
to the spin.
To connect the medium pressure and the mass density of
nucleon in the first approximation, we can write down:
where in SI units is the coefficient,
found by the radius of nucleon, its mass and strong gravitational constant. ^{[6]} In the selfconsistent model that takes into
account the density distribution, the rest energy, magnetic moment and the
conditions of limiting rotation, the ratio of the central proton mass density
to its average density is 1.57.^{ [}^{7}^{]}
From the point of view of the matter state, instead of
three quarks and indefinite number of gluons inside nucleons we expect up to of
smallest particles called praons.
According to the theory of Infinite Hierarchical Nesting of Matter, praons have
the same status in nucleons as nucleons themselves in neutron stars. This
explains why in collisions even with highest energies we observe not gas of
quarks and gluons, but jets of almost perfect liquid hadronic matter. ^{[}^{8}^{]} ^{[}^{9}^{]}
In the above picture de
Broglie wavelength of moving nucleons and other elementary particles can be
explained as a consequence of the relativistic transformation of wavelength of
the internal oscillations of the fundamental fields potentials of the particles
in the laboratory frame of reference.
Deuteron is the simplest nucleus consisting of two
nucleons – proton and neutron. In Figure P2 there are two examples of modern
potential of nuclear force depending on distance , which can be considered equal to the
distance from the center of mass of the system of two nucleons to the center of
one of the nucleons. From internucleon potential, understood as interaction
energy of two nucleons, we can proceed to the force acting on the nucleon,
according to the formula: The graph of this force is shown in
Figure P3 for the potential AV18.
In the gravitational model of strong interaction the
force between nucleons in the first approximation
is presented as the difference between the force of spin repulsion and the magnitude of gravitational force of attraction : ^{[}^{4}^{]}
where is
the gravitational torsion field from one
nucleon, which acts on the effective spin of
the other nucleon, and are the masses of neutron and proton, respectively, is the distance between the centers of
nucleons, is
the coefficient, the estimate of which for the case of two nucleons is as a result of exponential absorption of
gravitons in the matter of nucleons, and for particles of lower density it is .
Spin includes the initial nucleon spin, and the
spin induced by another nucleon by means of gravitational
induction. The formula for the repulsive force of nucleon spins is: ^{[}^{4}^{]}
,
where is
the speed of propagation of gravitational effect (the speed of gravity), which
is close to the speed of light, is
the coefficient depending on the distance of nucleons interaction in the
deuteron.
Since in Figure P3 at fm the force vanishes, we can estimate the distance
between the surfaces of nucleons: fm. The described state with opposite
nucleon spins has small binding energy of about 69 keV
and therefore is unstable. If we locate nucleons in this state on the plane,
the spins of nucleons will be perpendicular to the plane and opposite to each
other.
From Figure P3 we see that when , that is in nucleons’ contact, the spin
repulsive force from the torsion field is equal to the gravitational force of
attraction. At smaller distances a rapidly growing force of repulsion emerges.
We can assume that the main contribution is made by the magnetic force of repulsion
and the force of internal pressure in the matter of nucleons.
At distances from m to m the force from the torsion field decreases according to the
dependence , where .
If the nucleons (neutron and proton), considered as points were interacting
only by torsion fields from their constant spins, the dependence on the
distance in the formula for the force of spin interaction would have the form . However, when two nucleons approach each
other in deuteron formation, additional effects can occur. Firstly, in case of
the same direction of spins, due to the effect of gravitational induction both
nucleons will rotate each other as they approach, with increasing of their
spins. Secondly, besides gravitational forces there are also electromagnetic
ones, which are the forces of repulsion of magnetic moments in deuteron (and
the magnitude of magnetic moments due to various effects can also change as the
nucleons approach each other). All this leads to the fact that in the effective
force of nucleons repulsion the exponent increases
up to the values greater than . Thus, from a qualitative point of view,
the gravitational forces of attraction and the forces of spins interaction and
the electromagnetic forces can explain the nuclear forces at short distances.
At distances greater than m the force in Figure P3, built as the sum of the force from internucleon potential and the magnitude of the gravitational force , undergoes a strange kink, with a
significant change in the speed of its decrease with distance. This is due to
the inaccuracy of internucleon potential of the Standard model, according to
which the interaction between nucleons occurs by means of special carriers –
virtual mesons (in Figure P2 the areas are indicated where interactions with
two pions 2π, with mesons ρ, ω, σ, and one meson π
are taken into account) . Until now, the basis for calculation of the potential
at these distances is the Yukawa potential of the following form:
where is
some effective charge of strong interaction, is the mass of the particle – the carrier of interaction, is the Dirac constant.
For the pion the quantity in the exponent is equal to one
with m, with masses of heavier mesons the distance decreases. The force from the
Yukawa potential, which has the character of attraction, equals:
At such distances , where , the force decreases slowly enough, in proportion .
This creates a kink in Figure P3 for the force of spins interaction . At the same time, the gravitational
force changes in proportion , that is, faster than the force from the Yukawa potential at the segment m.
If we proceed from the gravitational and electromagnetic
interactions, the formula for the total energy of interaction between nucleons
in the deuteron must include gravitational energy, the energy of spins and
spinorbital gravitational interactions, the energy of spinspin and
spinorbital interaction of the magnetic moments taking into account the
possible effect of electromagnetic induction, increment of kinetic and
rotational energy of nucleons, which may depend on the distance between the
nucleons, due to the interaction of the gravitational and electromagnetic
forces. Almost all of these energies can contribute to the creation of the effective
force between nucleons.
In the deuteron we can assume that the nucleons are on
the common axis of rotation, and the nucleon spins are directed in one side of
the axis. Then, the magnetic moments of the proton and neutron are opposite,
corresponding to the magnetic moment of the deuteron. In the absence of orbital
rotation, the entire spin of the deuteron will consist of the nucleons spin.
Considering only the main components of energies and forces, in equilibrium, at
a small distance between the centers of the nucleons, the
following relations hold:
where is
the proton radius as the measure of the nucleon radius, is the internal energy of the torsion
field in the deuteron per one nucleon, is the internal energy of the torsion field of free nucleon, is the
energy of two spins in the field of each other, or doubled energy of one spin
in the external torsion field from the second spin, is the change in rotational kinetic
energy of nucleons, is the moment of inertia of the nucleon, MeV is the binding energy of the deuteron.
In the presented balance of forces in the first
approximation only the force of gravitational attraction of nucleons and the
force of spins repulsion are taken into account. The solution for the
balance of forces and energies is the value m between the adjacent surfaces of
nucleons. ^{[}^{4}^{]} In this case, the equatorial speed of rotation of the nucleon surface is
about 1.8 times higher than the speed of light, and is the analogue of the
first cosmic velocity, found for planets and stars. The proposition that
nucleons and more massive objects in general can not
move faster than the speed of light, does not refer to the matter of nucleons. The particles of hadron matter
inside nucleons on the average have the speed almost equal to the speed of
light.
The analysis of the equilibrium state of nucleons in the
deuteron allows us to formulate the following conditions for stability of
atomic nuclei:
Based on this, the models of triton (tritium nuclei, a
heavy isotope of hydrogen) and of other basic nuclei – helium and lithium are
built. Spinspin forces between nucleons in atomic nuclei explain the Pauli
exclusion principle, according to which identical fermions that are close,
cannot have the same quantum numbers. In particular, spins of identical
nucleons in the presented models of atomic nuclei are in opposite directions.
It is known that triton turns into the light helium
nucleus with halfdecay period 12.32 years due to beta decay. This can be
presented in the way that the left neutron of the triton in Figure P4,
undergoing beta decay, turns into a proton and moves to the position taken by
the left proton in the nucleus of the light helium in Figure P4. In this case
the direction of the nucleon spin is not changed. For the motion of the nucleon
it needs momentum which arises from the emission of electron antineutrino in
beta decay of the neutron. As it is shown in the substantial neutron model, antineutrino
flies toward the spin of the decaying neutron and pushes the neutron in the
opposite direction.
With the help of the expression for the gravitational
energy we can qualitatively show the need for the growth of specific nuclear
binding energy (binding energy per nucleon) with growth of the mass of the
nucleus. Since in the atomic nucleus the nucleon density only slightly depends
on the number of nucleons, it means the approximate equality of volumes per one
nucleon in different nuclei. It is usually assumed that the average distance
between nucleons in nuclei is of the order of
m. If we denote the total binding
energy of the nucleus by , with a small number of nucleons this
energy must be proportional to the gravitational energy of all the nucleons of the nucleus in the field of strong gravitation.
If the nucleus consists of nucleons, the nuclear mass is ,
the volume per one nucleon is equal to ,
the volume of the nucleus is , then the nucleus radius will be proportional to . Hence the specific binding energy and
the specific gravitational energy will be proportional to the quantity:
The dependence of the specific binding energy on the
number of nucleons in the nucleus as in
general is confirmed: if for the deuteron it is equal to 1.1 MeV/nucleon, then
for the nuclei with the specific binding energy is equal to 8
MeV/nucleon. With further increase of the specific binding energy reaches the value
of 8.7 MeV/nucleon, and then slowly decreases (approximately up to about 7.6
MeV/nucleon for the nucleus of uranium). Such a dependence is explained by the
growing influence of the electrical energy of protons repulsion with the growth
of , which reduces
the binding energy. In addition, from the Le Sage’s theory of gravitation the
saturation effect of strong gravitational energy follows with .^{[}^{4}^{]} As a consequence of this effect in case of further increase in the mass of
the nucleus the nucleons added to the nucleus will have the same energy, and
the potential of the gravitational field remains almost unchanged. The
gravitational pressure in the nucleus is fixed and stops growing,
correspondingly, the average distances between the nucleons stop changing too.
This result is consistent with the fact that with the maximum of the specific binding energy of
atomic nuclei is reached.
All hadrons, including mesons and baryons, can be divided
into three groups. The first group includes the simplest quasistable hadrons
like pions and nucleons, having long lifetime. These
hadrons can be considered as independent particles experiencing decay due to
weak interaction (except for stable proton). The second group consists of
longlived strange, charmed and beautiful particles, and the third group
includes resonances, whose lifetime is almost equal to the time of particles’
transit near each other at their close interaction. As shown in the model of quark quasiparticles, strange
particles can be represented as composite hadrons of simple hadrons of the
first group. ^{[6]} For example, hyperon Λ is
assumed to consist of proton and pion rapidly rotating next to each other along
one axis, held by strong gravitation and spin torsion fields. In calculating
the equilibrium conditions, the equations for the forces and energies are used,
similar to those presented above for the deuteron.
Hypothetical composition of other strange hadrons is as
follows: hyperon Σ is a compound of
neutron with pion; Ξ includes proton and two pions;
three or four pions with proton make up Ωbaryon.
Kmesons are compounds of three pions and have the
following compositions:
Different combinations of pions
in neutral kaon can explain different lifetimes of and states. In contrast to atomic nuclei, compounds of nucleons and pions (or pions with each other) can not be stable, and over time they disintegrate. The
same applies to charmed and beautiful hadrons.
There are many works in which resonances are presented
not as interactions of quarks but as dynamically bound shortlived states of
simpler hadrons. For example, hyperon Λ(1405) is considered as dynamic bound
state of nucleon and kaon, ^{[1}^{2}^{]} and scalar mesons f(980) and a(980) are considered as a molecule of kaon
and antikaon. ^{[1}^{3}^{]} Hadronic molecules of kaon, antikaon and nucleon are discussed in ^{[1}^{4}^{]} by solving the Schrödinger equation for the
wave function of three particles and using two interaction potentials assumed
in the model. There are strong proofs that many resonant states N, Δ, Λ, Σ, Ξ,
Ω are dynamically bound states of vector
mesons (of ρ and ω type) with baryons belonging to baryon octet with nucleons
and to decuplet with Δ. ^{[1}^{5}^{]}
In gravitational model of strong interaction masses as well as charges
of elementary particles are explained by the properties and the structure of
particles’ matter, and by the action of strong gravitation and electromagnetic
forces in this matter. Under the action of these forces ordering of matter
particle takes place, and this matter has the ability to transform slowly in
reactions of weak interaction. Thus weak interaction at the level of elementary
particles is reduced again to weak interaction, but at the level of minute
particles that make up the matter of elementary particles.
The examples of description of reactions of weak
interaction in the matter of elementary
particles are shown in the model of quark
quasiparticles, in the substantial
neutron model and in the substantial
proton model. In particular it is shown that neutrinos of one basic level
of matter are twocomponent and consist of fluxes of electron neutrinos and
antineutrinos of the lower basic level of matter.
This means that weak interaction can be explained not
with the help of special field quanta of the type of W and Z bosons, but
represent as the property of matter to change naturally in conditions of
maximum possible density of matter and energy.
Thus, it is expected that during the time of the order of 2•10^{15}
years neutron stars must undergo decay, with formation of magnetars and ejection
of negatively charged shells (similarly to neutrons decomposing with formation
of protons, electrons and electron antineutrinos).
Main source: Coupling
constant
To compare gravitational, weak, electromagnetic and
strong interactions the energies of corresponding forces are usually
considered, acting on proton matter taking into
account its mass and charge, in the field of other proton. For energies we can
write down:
where is
the gravitational constant, is
the proton mass, is
the distance between the centers of protons, is
Fermi constant of weak interaction, is the speed of light, is
the mass of virtual W or Z boson, which
is considered the carrier of weak interaction, is
the proton charge, equal to the elementary charge, is
the electric constant, is
the charge of strong interaction, is
the mass of virtual particle (mostly pion), which is supposed carrier of strong
interaction.
The expressions for the corresponding coupling constants
follow from the relations for the energy:
The coupling constant of electromagnetic interaction is
called the fine structure constant. The
charge of strong interaction and the Fermi constant are axiomatically introduced into the Standard theory to describe the
experimental results. If we proceed from the notion of strong gravitation, the
interaction energy of two nucleons and the coupling constant will equal: ^{[6]}
where is
the strong gravitational constant, for the case of two nucleons.
This shows that the coupling constant of
strong gravitation is of the same order of magnitude as the coupling constant of strong interaction. In atomic nuclei the equilibrium of nucleons is
achieved due to attraction from the strong gravitational field and repulsion
from gravitational torsion fields, and the coupling constants of both
components of the gravitational field (gravitational
field strength of strong
gravitation and gravitational torsion field
) are leveled in magnitude.
In the Standard model the gauge approach of quantum field
theory is used, when for each type of interaction (gravitational,
electromagnetic, weak and strong) their own fields and gauge bosonsquanta,
that carry the interaction, are introduced. Gravitons, photons, W and Z bosons,
gluons, and particles such as Higgs boson appear this way. At present, weak and
electromagnetic interactions of elementary particles, despite their significant
differences, are discussed by electroweak theory based on the unified
mathematical formalism. In future it is planned to add in the common scheme
strong (Grand Unified Theory) and gravitational interaction (theory of
everything).
The disadvantage of this approach is its focus only on
description of the observed processes, without penetration into the essence of
phenomena. So far, there are no specific mechanisms that explain how the forces
of attraction or repulsion between particles emerge due to the action of any
gauge bosons, such as photons. There is a gap between the facts that single
accelerated charges generate real electromagnetic emission that transfers
energy and theoretically is considered as a set of photons or partial waves,
and there is no such emission near fixed charges although the adjacent charges
somehow interact with each other. To create a unified picture it is necessary
that photons could explain not only free electromagnetic emission but also the
static electromagnetic field. However, in case of purely electrostatic and magnetostatic fields there are no electromagnetic energy
fluxes, the Poynting vector at each point is zero, and thus the possible
direction of the motion of photons can not be
determined. Introducing into the theory the idea of virtual particles does not
help, because interactions with virtual photons, gluons, W and Z bosons,
quarkantiquark pairs, electronpositron fields, etc. can
not be considered as the ultimate solution.
As shown above, strong interaction at the level of
elementary particles can be reduced to the action of strong gravitation and
spin gravitational forces from torsion fields, with addition from
electromagnetic forces. The same forces and the corresponding interaction will
be at the level of the stars, with substitution of strong gravitation by ordinary
gravitation. It is considered that gravitation at the macro level in general
must be described by relativistic theories such as general theory of relativity
(GTR) or covariant theory of gravitation
(CTG). But in GTR gravitation is reduced to curvature of spacetime and is not a
physical force, whereas in CTG the cause of gravitational force is assumed the
action of gravitons, considered in Le Sage’s theory of gravitation. Gravitons
act on the matter regardless of the number and density of
this matter and the effects of general relativity
emerging in strong fields near massive bodies, such as the effect of time
dilation, are reduced to the influence of gravitons on the properties of
electromagnetic waves (photons) used for measurements. The latter means the
dependence of the results of measurements of length and time on the measurement
procedure by means of light signals, with the constant picture of interaction
of gravitons with matter. In this case, the effects of GTR,
including the hypothetical black holes, are external, and do not reflect the
real essence of gravitational interaction.
In the weak fields, where the dependence on the
measurement procedure can be neglected, GTR turns to gravitoelectromagnetism and CTG – to Lorentzinvariant theory of gravitation
(LITG). It turns out that in LITG and in gravitoelectromagnetism the equations
of gravitational field are almost exactly the same and are similar in form to the
equations of the electromagnetic field in electrodynamics, which is emphasized
in Maxwelllike gravitational equations.
Apparently, the similarity of equations for both fields is not accidental.
Relationship between electromagnetism and gravitation may be that part of gravitons are photons
emitted by charged praons –
the carriers of matter, from which the matter can be formed, which is part of the matter of elementary particles. ^{[6]}
Representation of gravitons in the form of photons was
used to represent the formula of the gravitational force, as a result of
Compton scattering of photons in matter. ^{[1}^{6}^{]} On the other hand, emission of energy of supernovae in the formation of
neutron stars is almost entirely realized through neutrino emission, and not in
the form of expected gravitational waves. That, and the similar penetrating
ability of particles give the reason to assume that neutrinos of one level of
matter are gravitational quanta or gravitons of higher levels of matter.
Comparison of the energy density of neutrino emission in supernova and the
similar neutrino emission from the matter of the neutron
which is formed, taking into account the coefficients of similarity in the theory
of similarity of matter levels, shows
that the gravitons of ordinary gravitation can be neutrinos generated by matter, the carriers of which correspond to elementary
particles in the same way as elementary particles correspond to stars, or can
be smaller by one basic level of matter. ^{[6]} If gravitons are both photons and
neutrinos, then there is may be the case when the neutrino is a type of
electromagnetic radiation.
The difference between photon and neutrino is that neutrino is twocomponent
emission with opposite polarization of the components. In this case, photon and
neutrino are composed of the corresponding fluxes of tiny quanta of emission.
In the above picture electromagnetic and gravitational
fields are fundamental and similar to each other in the form of equations for
the field and the acting forces, and in the origin. For example, gravitational
quanta of one level of matter are able to compress the matter into massive objects of higher level of matter up
to such density that as a result emission of new, more powerful gravitational
and electromagnetic quanta is possible, as well as emission of charged
particles such as cosmic rays. After that, the emerged relativistic particles,
neutrinos and photons interact in a similar way with the matter of higher levels of matter, and so the process
goes on. At the same time, there is a reverse process of energy dissipation and
splitting of quanta. Adding to the fluxes of gravitons by Le Sage’s model the
fluxes of charged particles of different signs allows us not only to derive the
Newton’s formula of gravitation and to explain the origin of gravitational
force, but also to understand the origin of the electrostatic force between two
charges. ^{[}^{17}^{]} ^{[}^{2}^{]} ^{[}^{18}^{]} Strong and weak interactions by their nature are not fundamental field
interactions, characteristic of each object separately. This is due to the fact
that the first of them depends on the combination of fundamental fields in the
interaction of objects with each other, and the second – on the interaction of
internal fields in the matter of objects with the total gravitational
and electromagnetic fields of these objects, or with external emission, leading
to matter transformation.
It
was shown that the electromagnetic and gravitational fields, acceleration
