Glimpses Into the Structure of the Sun, Part II: The Solar Interior and the Sunspots

In Part I of this paper, we have endeavored to develop some important properties of matter at very high temperatures—those that prevail in the stellar interiors. Utilizing the principles developed there, we will now attempt to deduce the internal structure of the sun. For ease of reference, the section numbers, the figure numbers, and the reference numbers are all continued from Part I.

Glimpses Into the Structure of the Sun, Part I:The Nature of Stellar Matter

1. Introduction

Larson has discussed the development of the Reciprocal System of Physical Theory to a great extent in his two works, Nothing But Motion1 and The Universe of Motion,2 the latter work especially dealing with the astronomical applications. Stars are the basic building blocks of the large-scale universe. As such, the knowledge of their internal constitution and dynamics constitutes an important step in the understanding of the macroscopic universe. Larson developed the general structure and the details of evolution of the stars of various types.2 The detailed study of their internal structure has not yet been carried out in the context of the Reciprocal System. Therefore, such a study was taken up as an initial attempt to fill this gap and some of the results obtained are reported herein.

Cosmic Background Radiation: Origin and Temperature

1. The Cosmic Sector

One of the outstanding achievements of the Reciprocal System of theory is the discovery of the fact that the physical universe is not limited to our familiar world of three dimensions of space and one dimension of time, the material sector as Larson calls it. By virtue of the symmetry between the intrinsic natures of space and time, brought to light by Larson, he demonstrates the existence of a cosmic sector of the physical universe, wherein space-time relations are inverse of those germane to the material sector.

The Mythical Universe of Modern Astronomy

Transcript of Mr. Larson’s address to the Seventh Annual Convention of the International Society of Unified Science in Philadelphia, on August 13, 1982.

For the past two years, I have been spending all of the time that I could make available for the purpose of the preparation of additional volumes of the revised edition of my first book, The Structure of the Physical Universe. As I think most of you know, the first volume of that revised edition has already been published with a separate title of Nothing But Motion, and I am now working on the next two volumes, concentrating mainly on volume III, which will probably be completed and published ahead of volume II. That may seem like the wrong way of going about it, and perhaps it is, but there are good reasons for it, which I won’t go into now.

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.
