Parity violation

One of the paradoxes of physics is why parity is violated. Parity refers to the expected symmetry of behaviour (e.g. equal decay or reaction rates) for a particle and its mirror structure (spatial inversion).  The problem for physics is that while parity is conserved for the electromagnetic and strong interactions, experiments showed it is violated for the weak decay. Combining parity and charge symmetry results in CP-symmetry, but that too is violated in kaons.

The reason for CP violation becomes clear with cordus: the particule has a finite span (the geometric distance between the two reactive ends) and the discrete fields at each end have a direction (charge) and hand (matter-antimatter differentiation) that is consistent for both reactive ends of any one particule.  Nor are the two reactive ends energised simultaneously (except for the photon and even then in opposite directions). Thus a cordus particule is not symmetrical. Therefore mirroring the cordus particule does not result in an identical copy, hence charge-parity violation occurs. Cordus also explains why the CP violation only occurs at small scales: because this is the level at which the span becomes significant.

How does an electron emit a photon?

This is one of those foundational questions that is difficult to answer.

How exactly does the photon emerge from the electron? How is light absorbed by matter?

Even asking how an electron physically emits a single photon is  a meaningless question from the zero-dimensional point perspective of quantum mechanics: it can only go so far as to explain it in terms of quantum changes in energy levels. And wave theory does not extend to single particles.

However cordus is a non-local hidden-variable solution, so it has additional variables, hence this opens up more dimensions to its available solution spaces. We have been working on this emission problem for a while, designing possible solutions. Now we have some new ideas to suggest, and recently put them out for scrutiny.

Final stage in the proposes process whereby en electron emits a photon.

We show that it is possible to develop new insights into this problem, based on the cordus model. We start by predicting the structures of the photon and electron, both the internal geometric sub-structures, and their discrete fields. Then we go on to explain how the photon is created and separated out of the electron, in terms of how the fields arise.

Now we can start to put explanations towards those fundamental questions. Q: Why exactly do electrons emit photons?

Answer: Emission of photons is an escapement mechanism whereby matter particules that are over-prescribed in position can get rid of that energy.
