Title: On the Cyclic Nature of Time and the Consequent Exact Derivation of Quantum Mechanics from Classical-Relativistic Physics
Abstract: We have proven, with mathematical certainty and in several independent ways, the exact equivalence between the statistical description of ultra-fast harmonic dynamics, classical in the essence, and ordinary quantum mechanics. The equivalence has been rigorously confirmed in terms of all the main quantization prescriptions: canonical quantization, Feynman quantization, second quantization, etc..., and successfully verified for non-trivial quantum phenomena of condensed matter and high energy physics. The non-trivial topology of the theory has revealed a further remarkable result: the principle of relativistic covariance directly yields gauge interaction, without postulating gauge invariance, as much as gravitational interaction. All these independent results constitute an abundant amount of unequivocal evidence to postulate the intrinsic periodicity of elementary systems as the fundamental classical principle at the base of quantum mechanics. That is, the whole plethora of quantum phenomena turns out to be fully conciliated, in a fully unified description, with the principle of classical-relativistic physics, provided the introduction of a cyclic nature for the relativistic time.

Author: Prof. Donatello Dolce
BIO: Donatello Dolce has a Ph.D. in Theoretical High Energy Physics from the University of Florence (Italy). Subsequently, and attended three postdoctoral fellowships in various High Energy Physics institutes such as IFAE at Universitat Autonoma de Barcelona (Spain), THEP at the J. Gutenberg University of Mainz (Germany), and CoEPP at the University of Melbourne (Australia). Presently he is affiliated with the University of Camerino (Italy). Inspired by his studies of physics beyond the Standard Model, he developed a proposal for a unified theory of quantum and relativistic physics called the Elementary Space-Time Cycles Theory. This theory has been the subject of 21 published papers over more than 10 years, many of them peer-reviewed in highly-ranked scientific journals, but unfortunately, for reasons that have nothing to do with fair scientific conduct, it is mostly unknown to the vast majority of the physics community.
