The peer-reviewed journal Physics Essays published two days ago a paper where it is proven that a wrong math procedure is used in nuclear physics, for the calculation of the magnetic moments for excited even-even 2+ nuclei.
The paper also shows evidences that some excited even-even 2+ nuclei have null magnetic moment. But this is impossible by considering the foundations of the Nuclear Physics, and thereby there is no way to calculate a null magnetic moment for those excited nuclei, from any current nuclear model.
The repercussion of this misfire is the total collapse of Nuclear Physics, because a null magnetic moment of some excited even-even 2+ nuclei implies that are wrong some of the fundamental pillars on which the theory was developed, and therefore they must be rejected and replaced by new ones, from which a new nuclear model can be able to explain the null magnetic moment for those nuclei.
In order to save the Nuclear Physics from the total collapse, the nuclear theorists are using a wrong math procedure for the calculation of the magnetic moment of some excited even-even nuclei 2+, as did the authors of the paper "Magnetism of an Excited Self-Conjugate Nucleus: Precise Measurement of the g Factor of the 2+ State in 24Mg", published in 2015:
The abstract of the paper published by Physics Essays two days ago is shown ahead.
Abstract: Data extracted from the Atomic Data and Nuclear Data Tables [S. Raman et al., At. Data Nucl. Data Tables 78, 1 (2001)] are used for the calculation of magnetic moments of atomic nuclei. However, in October 2018, the author discovered that when nuclear theorists use Raman’s table, an incorrect math procedure is applied when calculating the magnetic moments for exotic excited even Z = N nuclei. Obviously, it is mandatory for nuclear theorists to ascertain the repercussions of such an error in nuclear physics. https://physicsessays.org/browse-journal-2/product/1734-6-wladimir-guglinski-wrong-math-procedure-used-in-nuclear-physics-for-the-calculation-of-magnetic-moments-of-excited-z5n-even-even-nuclei.html
Along the last 10 years the nuclear theorists have rejected the results of some experiments. Let us see two examples:
1- In 2012 the journal Nature published the paper "How atomic nuclei cluster", which detected by experiments that Z=N even-even nuclei have spherical shape. In spite of this is impossible from the Foundations of the Nuclear Physics, the nuclear theorists do not confess that some principles of the theory are wrong. https://arxiv.org/abs/1203.1244
2- In 2009 an experiment measured as being 7 fm the orbit radius of Be11, and this is impossible from the foundations of Nuclear Physics, because the maximum range of interaction by strong nuclear force is 3 fm. Therefore a halo neutron with 7 fm is impossible. http://www.uni-mainz.de/eng/13031.php
But now the nuclear theorists are rejecting the own mathematics, in their desperate attempt of trying to save the pillars of Nuclear Physics, which are being demolished by experiments along the last 10 years.
Among the tasks of theoretical and experimental physics is the discovery of the laws that rule the working of the universe where we live. And the math is a fundamental tool from which we can test a theory, so that to verify if it is agree with the laws that rule the working of the universe.
Then the question is:
If the nuclear theorists discard the math in the process of verifying the foundations of the theory, are we able to get a thrustwhorty understanding on how the universe works? Is the rejection of the math compatible with the Philosophy of Science?
