Using the speed of light as its foundation, a need for speed (A quantum aether theory - QAT) presents arguments to restore a medium, originally known as aether, to carry light energy as a wave. This concept was abandoned in the early 20th century mainly due to the influence of Albert Einstein, since the Special Theory of relativity did not require a medium for light and classical wave theory collapsed under quantum theory concerns. QAT goes beyond classical wave theory in order to incorporate quantum theory and explains the speed of light on a pure dynamics basis, reestablishing causation. While useful for some calculations, relativity and quantum probabilities appear to be misleading and incomplete concepts within the framework of QAT. Quantum aether makes it possible to explain gravity, mass, and, atomic structure under Newton's laws and mechanics. QAT does not support relativity, Big Bang theory or wave-particle dualism, each of which are discussed in separate sections.
This book is the result of a long friendship, of a broad international co- operation, and of a bold dream. It is the summary of work carried out by the authors, and several other wonderful people, during more than 15 years, across 3 continents, in the course of countless meetings, workshops and discus- sions. It shows that neither language nor distance can be an obstacle to close scientific cooperation, when there is unity of goals and true collaboration. When we started, we had very different approaches to handling the mys- terious, almost magical world of asynchronous circuits. Some were more theo- retical, some were closer to physical reality, some were driven mostly by design needs. In the end, we all shared the same belief that true Electronic Design Automation research must be solidly grounded in formal models, practically minded to avoid excessive complexity, and tested "in the field" in the form of experimental tools. The results are this book, and the CAD tool petrify. The latter can be downloaded and tried by anybody bold (or desperate) enough to tread into the clockless (but not lawless) domain of small-scale asynchronicity. The URL is http://www.lsi. upc. esr j ordic/petrify. We believe that asynchronous circuits are a wonderful object, that aban- dons some of the almost militaristic law and order that governs synchronous circuits, to improve in terms of simplicity, energy efficiency and performance.
