TitiusBode and the helicity connection: a quantized field theory of protostar formation.
Abstract
The TitiusBode relation is discussed in terms of the basic physics of the formation of the solar system. It is demonstrated that Bode numbers are the eigenvalues of the EulerLagrange equation resulting from the variation of the free energy of the generic plasma that formed the sun and planets. It is postulated that a major disturbance in the plane of the galaxy resulted in the formation of a plasma structure that proceeded to lose energy to its surroundings until it reached its lowest possible freeenergy state. The free energy of the plasmoid is varied subject to appropriate side conditions. The resulting morphology is described by first and secondorder Bessel functions. There is close agreement between the Bode numbers and the zeros of the Bessel functions of the first kind of order one. The result is a minimum action field theory of planetary formation that does not invoke the concept of 'action at a distance' forces.
