    Equilibrium Relativistic Mass Distribution for Indistinguishable Events.L. Burakovsky & L. P. Horwitz - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (6):785-818.
    A manifestly covariant relativistic statistical mechanics of a system of N indistinguishable events with motion in space-time parametrized by an invariant “historical time” τ is considered. The relativistic mass distribution for such a system is obtained from the equilibrium solution of the generalized relativistic Boltzmann equation by integration over angular and hyperangular variables. All the characteristic averages are calculated. Expressions for the pressure and the energy density are found, and the relativistic equation of state is obtained. Validity criteria are defined. (...)

  2. Generalized Boltzmann Equation in a Manifestly Covariant Relativistic Statistical Mechanics.L. Burakovsky & L. P. Horwitz - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (9):1335-1358.
    We consider the relativistic statistical mechanics of an ensemble of N events with motion in space-time parametrized by an invariant “historical time” τ. We generalize the approach of Yang and Yao, based on the Wigner distribution functions and the Bogoliubov hypotheses to find approximate dynamical equations for the kinetic state of any nonequilibrium system, to the relativistic case, and obtain a manifestly covariant Boltzmann- type equation which is a relativistic generalization of the Boltzmann-Uehling-Uhlenbeck (BUU) equation for indistinguishable particles. This equation (...)

  3. Relativistic Statistical Mechanics and Particle Spectroscopy.L. Burakovsky - 1998 - Foundations of Physics 28 (10):1577-1594.
    The formulation of manifestly covariant relativistic statistical mechanics as the description of an ensemble of events in spacetime parametrized by an invariant proper-time τ is reviewed. The linear and cubic mass spectra, which result from this formulation (the latter with the inclusion of anti-events) as the actual spectra of an individual hadronic multiplet and hot hadronic matter, respectively, are discussed. These spectra allow one to predict the masses of particles nucleated to quasi-levels in such an ensemble. As an example, the (...)

    Towards Resolution of the Scalar Meson Nonet Enigma.L. Burakovsky - 1997 - Foundations of Physics 27 (2):315-330.
    By the application of a linear mass spectrum to a composite system of both the pseudoscalar and scalar meson nonets, we find three relations for the masses of the scalar states which suggest the $q\bar q$ assignment for the scalar meson nonet a0(1320), K 0 * (1430), f0(1500), and f0 ′(980).

    Glueball Spectroscopy in Regge Phenomenology.L. Burakovsky - 1998 - Foundations of Physics 28 (10):1595-1605.
    We show that linear Regge trajectories for mesons and glueballs, and the cubic mass spectrum associated with them, determine a relation between the masses of the ρ meson and the scalar glueball, $M(0^{ + + } ) = 3/\sqrt 2 M(\rho )$ , which implies $M(0^{ + + } ) = 1650_ \pm 10$ MeV. We also discuss relations between the masses of the scalar, tensor and 3-- glueballs, $M(2^{ + + } ) = \sqrt 2 M(0^{ + + } (...)

    Relativistic Mass Distribution in Event-Anti-Event System and {OpenQuotes} Realistic {CloseQuotes} Equation of State for Hot Hadronic Matter.L. Burakovsky & L. P. Horwitz - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (8):1127-1146.
  7. Relativistic Mass Distribution in Event-Anti-Event System and “Realistic” Equation of State for Hot Hadronic Matter.L. Burakovsky & L. P. Horwitz - 1995 - Foundations of Physics 25 (8):1127-1146.
    We find the equation of state p, ρ ∫ T 6,which gives the value of the sound velocity c 27 = 0.20,in agreement with the “realistic” equation of state for hot hadronic matter suggested by Shuryak, in the framework of a covariant relativistic statistical mechanics of an event-anti-event system with small chemical and mass potentials. The relativistic mass distribution for such a system is obtained and shown to be a good candidate for fitting hadronic resonances, in agreement with the phenomenological (...)
