University of Sydney has published the solution of Klein Gordon equation http://www.physics.usyd.edu.au/ugrad/hons/hons_courses/RQM7.pdf for the hydrogen atom has a fundamental mistake in equations and the solution. The derivation of equation 7.8 from 7.7 is wrong and sign of right hand side of the equation is completely reversed. The results agree with the result of Dirac equation but if the mathematics is wrong at such a fundamental level, there is something big wrong in the way University of Sydney is solving it.

But I am a curious nobody, nontheless.

I was recently struck by a thought that the KK theory of an extra ‘curled-up’ dimension

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kaluza%E2%80%93Klein_theory

may in fact explain Zitterbewegung as interaction of the compactified dimension(s) with matter. And as such ‘generate’ the ZPF.

And that a ‘collective mode’ excitation of such could account for the Higgs…

Thus explaining mass (and inertia) as a manisfestation of the interaction of matter and the compactified dimension(s)

Is it wrong to bark thusly?
