White Dwarfs

Astronomical X-Ray Sources

Recent advances in techniques and equipment for x-ray observation of astronomical objects have resulted in the accumulation of enough information to enable checking the general nature of the observational results against the theoretical picture derived from development of the consequences of the postulates of the Reciprocal System of physical theory, the RS theory, we will call it for convenience. X-rays can, of course, be produced in relatively small quantities by a number of different processes, but the RS theoretical development indicates that the source of the very strong radiation in this frequency range that is generated in astronomical objects is radioactivity from matter which has reverted to speeds below unity (the speed of light) after having remained at a higher speed long enough to attain isotopic stability at the ultra-high speed.

The Density Gradient in White Dwarf Stars

In connection with assembling the material for a new edition of the 1959 book in which I introduced the theory of a universe composed entirely of motion, I am reviewing the progress that has been made in the intervening 22 years, both in the development of the details of the theory itself and in the fields of observation and experiment, to make certain that the new work has the benefit of these advances. One item that came to my attention during this review is particularly important because it supplies a positive verification of the theoretical findings as to the structure and density of the white dwarf stars, a result that has far-reaching implications.
