  • Gravitational Anti-Screening as an Alternative to Dark Matter [post-print] 

    Penner, A. Raymond (Springer, 2016-04)
    A semiclassical model of the screening of electric charge by virtual electric dipoles, as found in electrodynamic theory, will be presented. This model is then applied to the hypothetical case of an electric force where ...
  • Induced Energy Polarization of the Vacuum and the Coma Cluster [post-print] 

    Penner, A. Raymond (NRC Research Press, 2013)
    The theory of an induced energy polarized vacuum is applied to the Coma cluster. The theoretical virial mass distribution of the cluster is determined and found to be in good agreement with previous virial mass estimates. ...
  • Induced Energy Polarization of the Vacuum and the Rotational Curves of Spiral Galaxies [post-print] 

    Penner, A. Raymond (NRC Research Press, 2013)
    The theory of an induced energy polarized vacuum is used to determine the rotational curves for modeled galaxies whose baryonic mass distribution parameters are the median values of three classes of spiral galaxies. From ...
  • Induced Energy Polarization of the Vacuum and the Rotational Curve for the Galaxy [post-print] 

    Penner, A. Raymond (NRC Research Press, 2013)
    The theory of an induced energy polarized vacuum, as previously presented by the author (Penner. Can. J. Phys. 90, 315 (2012)), is used to generate a theoretical rotational curve for the Galaxy. The theoretical curve ...
  • Induced Energy Polarization of the Vacuum as the Source of the Baryonic Tully-Fisher Relationship and the Pioneer Anomaly [post-print] 

    Penner, A. Raymond (NRC Research Press, 2012)
    A theory where the gravitational field of a mass induces a gravitational field contribution from the cosmos is presented. In this theory, entities of both net positive and net negative energy come into existence throughout ...
  • Optimization of Array Configuration 

    Penner, A. Raymond (Acoustical Society of America, 1987-12)
    The purpose of this study was to determine the optimal configuration of 2-, 3-, and 4- element hydrophone arrays. The noise field was taken to be isotropic and the arrays were constrained to lie in a horizontal plane. ...
  • Suspension of a Disk on a Surface of Water 

    Penner, A. Raymond (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2000-06)
    The suspension of a disk on the surface of water by the forces of surface tension and buoyancy is considered. Both theoretical and experimental results are presented along with a discussion of the relative importance of ...
  • The Physics of Golf: The Optimum Loft of a Driver 

    Penner, A. Raymond (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2001-05)
    The impact between a clubhead and a golf ball along with the resulting flight and run of the ball after landing is considered. The clubhead loft which results in the maximum drive distance and its dependence on the initial ...
  • The Physics of Golf: The Convex Face of a Driver 

    Penner, A. Raymond (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2001-10)
    The impact of the clubhead of a driver with a golf ball is modeled. The effect of the convex clubface of a driver on the flight of the golf ball is considered and the dependence of the optimum curvature of the clubface on ...
  • The Physics of Sliding Cylinders and Curling Rocks 

    Penner, A. Raymond (American Association of Physics Teachers, 2001-03)
    The lateral deflection of a rotating cylindrical shell sliding on one of its ends is considered and both theoretical and experimental results are presented. The coefficient of kinetic friction between a curling rock and ...
