Quantum Relativistic Theory of Tachyons

The possible existence of tachyons, namely hypothetical particles always moving faster than light in vacuum, is still controversial due to the common belief they would violate the principle of macroscopic causality, despite their existence is not forbidden, in principle, by the Einstein's Special Theory of Relativity. Indeed, the main difficulties with tachyons are rather related to other two questions: their expected imaginary rest mass and the lack of a physical mechanism able to explain their existence especially from the standpoint of quantum theory.

The theory developed by FoPRC theoretical Division, based on QED coherence in matter and on a reformulation of Special Theory of Relativity in the space-like region, proposes a novel physical mechanism able to explain a possible origin of tachyons as well as their real-value rest mass whose thepretical as well as applicative consequences appear to be very deeep and interesting.
