The Coulomb kick decreases in more peripheral collisions because the overlap volume is smaller, and therefore, less positive charge generates a smaller Coulomb field in the overlap volume.
If the colliding nuclei are fully stopped, due to a larger stopped charge in the overlap volume a stronger Coulomb field is generated, and this Coulomb field has a stronger influence on the charged pions.
Therefore, the following reading of the mathematical formalism concerning the electron of an hydrogen atom turns out to be permissible: in a given region of ATPS, the ambient situation represented by the Coulomb field created by a proton (i.e.
that respond in a iterative fashion to the bare charge's Coulomb field, leading to the well-known relativistic electric and magnetic fields that are traditionally ascribed to the charge as a single entity.
That this field is the same as that derived from the Lorentz transformed Coulomb field is shown in Appendix B.
Using the static Coulomb field in the charge system and transforming it to the laboratory system with the inverse of (B2) leads to the magnitude
The zero point agitation of the Planck particles within the degenerate negative-energy PV create zero-point electromagnetic fields that exist in free space [5], the evidence being the [e.sub.*] and [k.sub.c*] in (7), the rms Coulomb field [e.sub.*]/[r.sup.2.sub.*] in (16), and the fact that [E.sub.zp] drives the free-space charge [e.sub.*].
The field intrinsic to the particle is the bare Coulomb field [e.sub.*]r/[r.sup.3], where r is the radius vector from the particle to the field point.
Using the Coulomb field of the bare charge, the polarizability of the PV, and an internal feedback mechanism intrinsic to the PV; Section 4 derives the relativistic electric and magnetic fields associated with the charge, and infers the Lorentz transformation and constancy of the speed of light from the results.
Its bare Coulomb field polarizes the vacuum, and its mass exerts a van-der-Waals attractive force on the PPs of the PV.
These ends are accomplished by using the bare Coulomb field of a free charge in uniform motion, a feedback mechanism intrinsic to the PV [10], and the Galilean transformation; to derive the relativistic electric and magnetic fields of a uniformly moving charge.
