International Astronomical Union, Cairo, 2008

Another Cairo conference. The Great Man didn't attend this one. Let me explain why it's interesting.


Two nutty presentations or papers were given.

This one (PDF):

Abstract. The idea that the quantum space-time of microphysics may be fractal everywhere was intensively investigated recently, and several authors have presented the geodesic equations of different fractal space-times. In the present work we obtain the geodesic and the geodesic deviation equations in fractal space-times by using the Bazanski method. We also extend this approach to obtain the equations of motion for spinning and spinning charged particles in the above-mentioned spaces, in a similar way to their counterparts in Riemannian geometry.

Keywords. Fractal space-times: geodesic deviation equations: Bazanski approach


And this one, which may ring a bell:

Cosmological and Astrophysical Implications of Nottale’s Theory of Scale Relativity and El-Naschie’s Cantorian Fractal Space-Time

ABSTRACT: The theory of scale relativity (ScR), as developed by Laurent Nottale [1, 2], consists of generalizing to scale transformations the principle of relativity, which has been applied by Einstein to motion laws. It is based on giving up the assumption of space-time coordinate differentiability, which is usually retained as an implicit hypothesis in current physics. To deal with the scale relativistic construction, one generally begins with a study of pure scale laws. Structures are therefore identified, which evolve in a so-called ‘scale space’ that can be described at the different levels of relativistic theories (Galilean, special relativistic, general relativistic) [3]. Space-time then becomes a fractal structure with Cantorian properties as envisaged by Mohammed El-Naschie [4]. The aim of the present paper is to review possible solutions to some cosmological and astrophysical problems in the framework of the theory of scale relativity (ScR) and Cantorian fractal space-time. Some of the problems that will be dealt with are: •Large scale stellar structures without any need for dark matter• The anomalous Pioneer acceleration. •Quantization of solar and extra solar planetary systems.• Prediction of the distribution of planets in extra solar systems. As we shall see, this approach also provides a solution for both the formation problem and the anomalous effects without needing any additional unseen matter. Moreover, it allows one to understand the morphogenesis of several structures at all scales and to theoretically predict the existence of new relations and constraints, which can be successfully checked from an analysis of the presently existing astrophysical data.

Here's where it gets interesting.

The author of the second paper, Mohamed A.Z. Habeeb, is an E-Infinity group member. He is one of four members of that shadowy Brotherhood whose picture we are missing. We want very much to get our hands on it.

The conference Web site contains a treasure trove of photographs! I have no doubt that Habeeb's picture is in one of the group photos. Can our readers possibly identify him?
