Physics Articles - sr, gr etc

  1. May 8, 2007 #1
    As I mentioned a while back I was starting a new project so I wouldn't be posting much until I was finished. The project was for me to take all my files (all physics articles) from the two draws in my cabinet and scan them and place them in PDF files. That work is now complete. The list of articles is found at


    If you wish to read any of them please PM me and I'll be happy to e-mail them. A good portion of them are in special and general relativity.

    Must be popular - I tried to take a look at what you had, and you'd exceeded your data transfer limit...

    I can't figure out why that happened. The file is small in kb but massive in the list of articles. I just checked it now and it is working fine. I guess the time limit is over.

    Is this okay with the forum? I know people tread lightlly here when journal articles are passed. They seem to worry about copy right infringments. Do you have any objections pervect? I hope not since this is a great resource for this site. It'd be easier if I sent the forum a CD with the journals on them and they could keep them readily accesible since many people don't wish to give away their e-mail address or simply refuse to PM certain people for whatever reason. If this seems interesting enough and doable then the forum would have ready access to many famous physics articles and a huge selection of articles to choose from. I understand that your a moderator now (congradulations!:smile: ) so what do you, as a moderator, think about this idea?

    Best wishes

    Wouldn't it be nice if we could just assume copyright restrictions had expired on everything more than.. I don't know, 20-50 years old?

    Yeah, copyrights should be like patents. They should just fade away. Same goes for music. *Puts on "In A Gadda Da Vita"*

    I'm clean with my conscience as I'm not intending any commerical use, but the law in this area is pretty confused. I suppose I ought to report this issue to the powers that be at PF and see what they think.

    In that case I recommend that people bookmark that page since it has some really interesting stuff in it and they can always contact me and I can e-mail them the article. And not to worry for the forum because all that has to be done to make them non-accessible is to delete the URL.

    A good list!
    I am also glad to see that one of my papers is also there. :smile:

    Thanks. It also refleccts my personal interests in physics over the last 9 years.
    Really? Which paper is that? Or do you wish to keep your identity private?

    I have already uncovered my identity several times on this forum.
    It is the paper with the title "Relativistic contraction of an accelerated rod".

    Sorry but I never caught a glimpse at those responses where you uncovered your identity.Thanks for filling me in this time. Much appreciated.

    An interesting paper:

    Some remarks on a nongeometrical interpretation of gravity and the flatness problem

    I'm reminded of the papers by the Geometric Calculus guys. For instance:


    This is why I wrote the Painleve gravity simulator.

    I've decided to make an identical list but this one containing the abstracts. I believe that would be of great help to the users of the web page.
