El artículo muestra el giro transformador que hace el filósofo alemán en el tratamiento de estas dos nociones, con el fin de delinear una nueva concepción de filosofía, a propósito de la crítica y transformación de estas concepciones. La crítica se centra en señalar cómo en la tradición filosófica ha preponderado la teoría, comprendida desde una visión lógico – r…Read more

13Traffic Noise Annoyance in the Population of North Mexico: Case Study on the Daytime Period in the City of MatamorosFrontiers in Psychology 12. 2021.Aim: The presence of noise in urban environments is rarely considered a factor that causes damage to the environment. The primary generating source is transportation means, with vehicles being the ones that affect cities the most. Traffic noise has a particular influence on the quality of life of those who are exposed to it and can cause health alterations ranging from annoyance to cardiovascular diseases. This study aims to describe the relationship between the traffic noise level and the perce…Read more

77Teleparallel Kähler Calculus for SpacetimeFoundations of Physics 28 (6): 931958. 1998.In a recent paper [J. G. Vargas and D. G. Torr, Found. Phys. 27, 599 (1997)], we have shown that a subset of the differential invariants that define teleparallel connections in spacetime generates a teleparallel KaluzaKlein space (KKS) endowed with a very rich Clifford structure. A canonical Dirac equation hidden in this structure might be uncovered with the help of a teleparallel Kähler calculus in KKS. To bridge the gap to such a calculus from the existing Riemannian Kähler calculus in spacet…Read more

27The Foundations of Quantum Mechanics and the Evolution of the CartanKähler CalculusFoundations of Physics 38 (7): 610647. 2008.In 1960–1962, E. Kähler enriched É. Cartan’s exterior calculus, making it suitable for quantum mechanics (QM) and not only classical physics. His “KählerDirac” (KD) equation reproduces the fine structure of the hydrogen atom. Its positron solutions correspond to the same sign of the energy as electrons.The CartanKähler view of some basic concepts of differential geometry is presented, as it explains why the components of Kähler’s tensorvalued differential forms have three series of indices. W…Read more

164The CartanEinstein Unification with Teleparallelism and the Discrepant Measurements of Newton's Constant GFoundations of Physics 29 (2): 145200. 1999.We show that in 1929 Cartan and Einstein almost produced a theory in which the electromagnetic (EM) field constitutes the timelike 2form part of the torsion of Finslerian teleparallel connections on pseudoRiemannian metrics. The primitive state of the theory of these connections would not, and did not, permit Cartan and Einstein to realize how their torsion field equations contained the Maxwell system and how the Finslerian torsion contains the EM field. Cartan and Einstein discussed curvatur…Read more

47Spontaneous paraLorentzian conservedvector and nonconservedaxial weak currentsFoundations of Physics 12 (8): 765779. 1982.The energymomentum relationship is obtained in paraLorentzian dynamics. It is shown that the wellknown correspondence rule for the operators energy and momentum holds in any inertial system if it is assumed to hold in the preferred reference frame. The new Dirac equation is obtained. Some qualitative features of the new theory are given; one of then is the spontaneous appearance of conservedvector and nonconservedaxial weak currents. Finally one evaluates the convenience of further developm…Read more

10Problems of synchronization in special relativity: A reply to G. Cavalleri and G. Spinelli (review)Foundations of Physics 13 (12): 12311235. 1983.Cavalleri and Spinelli have criticized previous work, connected with synchronization procedures, by the present author. This reply discusses their criticisms

10Perspectivas de la posmodernidad institucionalCuadernos de Filosofía Latinoamericana 32 (104): 121127. 2011.Este trabajo tiene como objetivo analizar las perspectivas teóricometodológicas del posmodernismo como tendencia de la política comparativa. A pesar de que los posmodernistas frecuentemente rechazan algunos de los puntos del acercamiento conductual, la psicología política tiende a abarcarlos. En este análisis se sugiere que se debe tener cuidado cuando se atribuyen elementos al posmodernismo ya que está lejos de ser una disciplina monolítica, pues contiene diferentes áreas de interés, tales com…Read more

68On the geometrization of electrodynamicsFoundations of Physics 21 (4): 379401. 1991.This paper develops the conjecture that the electromagnetic interaction is the manifestation of the torsion Ωμ of spacetime. This conjecture is made feasible by the natural separation of the connection ω μ v into “gravitational” and “electromagnetic” parts α μ v and β μ v , respectively, related to the metric and to the torsion. When α μ v is neglected in front of β μ v , the affine geodesics are shown to become the equations of motion of charged particles with Lorentz force, for an appropriate …Read more

23Nonrelativistic paraLorentzian mechanicsFoundations of Physics 11 (34): 235278. 1981.After reviewing the foundations of special relativity and the room left for rival theories, a set of nonrelativistic paraLorentzian transformations is derived uniquely, based on (a) a weaker first principle, (b) the requirement that the transformations sought do not give rise to the clock “paradox” (in a refined version), and (c) the compliance of the transformations with the classical experiments of MichelsonMorley, KennedyThorndike, and IvesStilwell. The corresponding dynamics is developed…Read more

25Nonrelativistic paraMaxwellian electrodynamics with preferred reference frame in the universeFoundations of Physics 12 (9): 889905. 1982.The electrodynamics consistent with the paraLorentzian mechanics developed in previous papers is obtained. The transformation law for the fields, Maxwell's equations, and the potentials are the main topics considered. One then obtains the gauge transformation and the electromagnetic action with a view to further develop the paraLorentzian theory of the electron

33Electrodynamics of the MaxwellLorentz type in the tendimensional space of the testing of special relativity: A case for Finsler type connections (review)Foundations of Physics 19 (3): 269291. 1989.It has recently been shown by Vargas, (4) that the passive coordinate transformations that enter the Robertson test theory of special relativity have to be considered as coordinate transformations in a sevendimensional space with degenerate metric. It has also been shown by Vargas that the corresponding active coordinate transformations are not equal in general to the passive ones and that the composite activepassive transformations act on a space whose number of dimensions is ten (oneparticl…Read more

102The emergence of a KaluzaKlein microgenometry from the invariants of optimally Euclidean Lorentzian spacesFoundations of Physics 27 (4): 533558. 1997.It is shown that relativistic spacetimes can be viewed as Finslerian spaces endowed with a positive definite distance (ω0, mod ωi) rather than as pariah, pseudoRiemannian spaces. Since the pursuit of better implementations of “Euclidicity in the small” advocates absolute parallelism, teleparallel nonlinear Euclidean (i.e., Finslerian) connections are scrutinized. The fact that (ωμ, ω0 i) is the set of horizontal fundamental 1forms in the Finslerian fibration implies that it can be used in prin…Read more

32Revised Robertson's test theory of special relativity: Supergroups and superspace (review)Foundations of Physics 16 (12): 12311261. 1986.The revised Robertson's test theory of special relativity (SR) has been constructed upon a family of sets of passive coordinate transformations in flat spacetime [J. G. Vargas and D. G. Torr,Found. Phys., 16, 1089 (1986)]. In the same paper, it has also been shown that the boosts depend in general on the velocities of the two frames involved and not only on their relative velocity. The only exception to this is SR, if one has previously used an appropriate constraint to remove the other relativ…Read more

25Revised Robertson's test theory of special relativityFoundations of Physics 14 (7): 625651. 1984.The only test theory used by workers in the field of testing special relativity to analyze the significance of their experiments is the proof by H. P. Robertson [Rev. Mod. Phys. 21, 378 (1949)] of the Lorentz transformations from the results of the experimental evidence. Some researchers would argue that the proof contains an unwarranted assumption disguised as a convention about synchronization procedures. Others would say that alternative conventions are possible. In the present paper, no conv…Read more

40The construction of teleparallel finsler connections and the emergence of an alternative concept of metric compatibilityFoundations of Physics 27 (6): 825843. 1997.The issue of whether teleparallel nonlinear connections exist is resolved by their explicit construction on Finslerian metrics that arise in the Robertson test theory of special relativity (RTTSR), and on the Minkowski metric in particular. The method is an adaptation to the Finsler bundle of a similar construction for teleparallel linear connections. It suggests the existence of a concept of metric compatibility alternative toω μλ +ω λμ = 0 for teleparallel nonlinear connections. A sophisticate…Read more

26Revised Robertson's test theory of special relativity: Spacetime structure and dynamics (review)Foundations of Physics 16 (11): 10891126. 1986.The experimental testing of the Lorentz transformations is based on a family of sets of coordinate transformations that do not comply in general with the principle of equivalence of the inertial frames. The Lorentz and Galilean sets of transformations are the only member sets of the family that satisfy this principle. In the neighborhood of regular points of spacetime, all members in the family are assumed to comply with local homogeneity of spacetime and isotropy of space in at least one free…Read more

20Kinematical and gravitational analysis of the rocketborne clock experiment by Vessot and Levine using the revised Robertson's test theory of special relativityFoundations of Physics 16 (10): 10031020. 1986.The kinematic aspects of the rocketborne clock experiment by Vessot and Levine are analyzed with the revised Robertson's test theory of special relativity (Found. Phys. 14, 625 (1984)). Besides the expected timedilation, it is found that the intermediate steps of this experiment yield in principle MichelsonMorley type information (a relation between longitudinal and transverse length contractions) in the third order of the velocities involved, but no relativityofsimultaneity related effects…Read more

22Geometrization of the physics with teleparallelism. II. Towards a fully geometric Dirac equationFoundations of Physics 22 (4): 527547. 1992.In an accompanying paper (I), it is shown that the basic equations of the theory of Lorentzian connections with teleparallelism (TP) acquire standard forms of physical field equations upon removal of the constraints represented by the Bianchi identities. A classical physical theory results that supersedes general relativity and MaxwellLorentz electrodynamics if the connection is viewed as Finslerian. The theory also encompasses a shortrange, strong, classical interaction. It has, however, an o…Read more

39Geometrization of the physics with teleparallelism. I. The classical interactionsFoundations of Physics 22 (4): 507526. 1992.A connection viewed from the perspective of integration has the Bianchi identities as constraints. It is shown that the removal of these constraints admits a natural solution on manifolds endowed with a metric and teleparallelism. In the process, the equations of structure and the Bianchi identities take standard forms of field equations and conservation laws.The LeviCivita (part of the) connection ends up as the potential for the gravity sector, where the source is geometric and tensorial and …Read more

7Análisis sobre la figura del profesor en tiempos de posmodernismoHuman Review. International Humanities Review / Revista Internacional de Humanidades 11 (1): 113. 2022.En este artículo realizamos una aproximación investigativateóricoreflexiva sobre los efectos del postmodernismo y la postmodernidad en la sociedad actual y en el ámbito educativo en particular (centrándonos en el papel del maestro/profesor). Bajo la apariencia del bien común: mayor igualdad, ecologismo, atención a la diversidad, respeto a las diferencias…, una de las visiones del postmodernismo lo convierte en el chivo expiatorio del capitalismo, propiciando que este siga fagocitándose, genera…Read more
