Emisson-Absorption-Scattering (EAS) Sub-Quantum Physics - A causal model of Electrical repulsion and attraction which has gravity as a natural side effect and offers a "nuts and bolts" explanation for the braking action of bremsstrahlung. - Originally presented as an invited paper at the International Conference on Sir Isaac Newton, Russian Academy of Science, St. Petersburg Russia, March (1993). - (In Russian)

EAS Nuclear Glue (Revised 8 January 2000) Nuclear electrons, proton magnetic momenta, and departures from the spherical symmetry of the Coulomb relation are called on to produce the nuclear glue.

EAS Neutron Beta Decay (Installed prior to 12 August 1999. Latest update 03 SEP 2005.) Stochastic lulls in positrino and negatrino flux bombardment rates on free neutrons permit hypothetical nuclear electrons to fly off at their proton grazing orbit speeds. Has GIF animation.

EAS Mass Excess and Mass Defect. (22 Nov 1998) When we subject charged particles to known electrical and magnetic fields we can deduce their masses but our deductions hinge on the assumption that electrical charges don't shield one another. When shielding is brought into play (by hypothesis) we may find some new insights into the nature of mass. [This page is undergoing serious reconstruction. 26 Sep 2005.]

Cosmological Redshift Accepted theory (Expanding Universe/Big Bang) is based on the assumption that cosmologically early/distant stellar QED processes were identical to present/local QED processes and that the Doppler effect (or some other effect) has redshifted their intrinsic spectra. Author's non-Doppler model for redshift hypothesizes that variable electrical charge, related to interstellar matter ... density differences, may be the real culprit.
