1306.1774 (Govind S. Krishnaswami et al.)

A critique of recent theories of spin half quantum plasmas    [PDF]

Govind S. Krishnaswami, Rajaram Nityananda, Abhijit Sen, Anantanarayanan Thyagaraja
In this Letter certain fundamental physics issues relating to recent theories of so-called `spin quantum plasmas' are examined. It is shown that the derivations and some of the results obtained in these theories contradict well-established principles of quantum mechanics, especially in their treatment of fermions and spin. The analysis presented suggests that the aforementioned theories do not apply for any range of temperatures at the stated densities and furthermore fail to make any experimentally accessible and testable predictions.
