Possible Ripple in LIGO MIT NSF Announcement of Gravitational Wave "Ripples in Einsteinian Space-Time" Detection Suggested by Astrophysicist Dr. Andrew W. Beckwith, Chongqing University Department of Physics, PRC

Chongqing, Peoples Republic of China 2/12/16 1238 EST, +5 GMT -The author has viewed extensively the LIGO paper in PRD and finds that it is a very good beginning. However several caveats are in order.

a. If or not gravity waves can be composed of Gravitons is a non-trivial matter and in spite of Freeman Dyson's statement as to the impossibility of finding Gravitons, the author has reviewed Dyson's arguments as to the Gertshenshtein process effect and probability and found that these arguments most heavily fall upon more than kilometer long interferometer geometry and the light years of propagation given in Dyson's paper.

Beckwith, Chongqing University Department of Physics, Peoples Republic of China Artist's Depiction of Gravitational Waves Induced by Merging of Galaxies Image: CORBIS Chongqing, Peoples Republic of China 2/12/16 1238 EST, +5 GMT -The author has viewed extensively the LIGO paper in PRD (Physical Review D) and finds that it is a very good beginning. However several caveats are in order. a. If or not gravity waves can be composed of Gravitons is a non-trivial matter and in spite of Freeman Dyson's statement as to the impossibility of finding Gravitons, the author has reviewed Dyson's arguments as to the Gertshenshtein process effect and probability and found that these arguments most heavily fall upon more than kilometer long interferometer geometry and the light years of propagation given in Dyson's paper. http://publications.ias.edu/sites/default/files/poincare2012.pdf If smaller detector geometries are invoked the probability calculations given by Dyson, as in his IAS paper have to be reviewed, and should be.
  2. 2. b. The fact is, that there are a slew of significant discoveries as to Gravitational astrophysics which may lie outside of the range of detection used for the black hole situation with the black hole situation as outlined in http://www.kurzweilai.net/we-have-detected-gravitational-waves-ligo-scientists c. If or not gravitational waves are composed of gravitons with mass, or without mass, will say a lot about the characteristics of relic gravitational waves. d. In Hefei , PRC, , there is, as has been brought up by myself, Dr. Beckwith, a functional Tokamak which has characteristics which with a GW strain value h ~ 10^-26 , which maybe with alternate gravitational wave detectors a way to source production of gravitons and to determine their characteristics . I.e. if the gravitons are massive (with a small mass) or massless (of zero mass) which will have a strong bearing upon understanding experimental gravity from constituent foundational arguments. The author without reservation wishes to enjoin researchers to keep an open mind as to alternatives as to presumed massless gravitons which may be the constituent foundation of gravity. While Freeman Dyson's arguments given as to nearly infinite geometry and the Gertshenshtein process effect about graviton detection are very convincing, that largely states that there is no alternative to the interferometer approach used by LIGO. The modus operandi should be in the face of a new field to not deny other approaches. As an example, as the author discussed with other researchers in Rencontres De Moriond in 2015, in a gravitational physics meeting, if the Tsar Bomb in the early 1960s, a case where Sakarov designed a 54 megaton Hydrogen bomb blast, decades before, maybe even a Weber bar experiment could have in that configuration, detected gravitational waves. We cannot predict precisely what the future will bring as far as new technologies, and also what we will do in outer space explorations. Having said that, I thank again the LIGO consortium for their heroic work in determination of their epic find of Gravitational waves, in the face of tremendous uncertainty and also of noise and other signal imponderables, which the LIGO team resolved with élan and magnificent scientific rigor. The author asks that Gravitational wave researchers keep the same principled attitude as to how the physics community has reviewed the Higgs like Boson discovered, which has led to theorists working closely with experimentalists for over a year. I and others hope that this gravitational wave discovery will enjoin the same spirit of inquiry as has been observed in Higgs like bosons, for mass generation. Note that the advanced LIGO gravitational wave high frequency limit is about 250 Hertz and that the actual last merger signals may well be of higher frequency. These higher frequencies would include important black hole information and that this information may be receivable by a gravitational wave detector admitting higher frequencies than

This in itself indicates more work needs to be done, even if we stick to interferometer methods for Gravitational Wave Astronomy. - Andrew Beckwith, PhD Copyright 2016; Academic research use is hereby granted by the Author - rwill9955b@gmail.com Additional contact: Myron D. Stokes, Research Assistant - globalheavyliftholdings@ymail.com Statement Released at 1am, EST, 11 February, 2016, in Advance of LIGO Announcement Initially Through Linked In Group Theoretical Physics Dr. Andrew W. Beckwith: LIGO Impending Announcement Suggesting Confirmation of GravWaves While Commendable, May Not be as Significant as Implied "Our Colleagues at LIGO Washington State and associated facilities are to be commended for creating a level of excitement in the scientific community akin to the initial announcement by C.E.R.N in 2012 as to presumed discovery of the elusive HIGGS-BOSON, the so-called "God Particle.". And, there is no doubt in my mind that supporters of "Quantum Wave" theory, as originally postulated by Hawking in 1988, will be most intrigued by the prospect of a potential overlaying of this aforementioned quantizing of gravity with the anticipated identification of GravWaves inferred by the forthcoming LIGO announcement today. I do expect them to publicly state they are 'Closer than the world physics community has ever been to prove Einsteinian predictions in this arena, but we're not quite there yet.' In my view, confirmation of gravitons themselves may be the more relevant quest." - Dr. Andrew W.
