Six observations consistent with the electron neutrino being a tachyon with mass: m2νe=0.11±0.016eV2

Source/Fonte: PhysOrg

Six observations based on data and fits to data from a variety of areas are consistent with the hypothesis that the electron neutrino is a m2νe=0.11±0.016eV2 tachyon. The data are from areas including CMB fluctuations, gravitational lensing, cosmic ray spectra, neutrino oscillations, and 0νdouble beta decay. For each of the six observations it is possible under explicitly stated assumptions to compute a value for m2νe, and it is found that the six values are remarkably consistent with the above cited νe mass (χ2=2.73). There are no known observations in clear conflict with the claimed result. Three checks are proposed to test the validity of the claim, one of which could be performed using existing data.
