Overview

This collection of essays is inspired by the often vigorous arguments engendered by two workshops organized by supporters of unmediated instantaneous action-at-a-distance (IAAAD) in modern physics. Contributors wrote these essays after the workshops to allow for modification of their arguments in light of what transpired at the workshops themselves and in the course of the debates which followed. The 12 essays, including and introduction and closing remarks, describe what the first workshop as about, reiterate aims and objectives, and describe movements toward a consensus. Other topics include a tale of two paradigms in the discussions; the evidence and consequences of Newtonian instantaneous forces; closed systems, hierarchy and radiation; the Pope-Osborne angular momentum synthesis; the Dirac state and how to get something from nothing, and further developments. The editors include a bibliography. Annotation © 2006 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
