Thanks Art

obviously the experiment is complex. My bet is that there is no violation of special relativity. The experts will have to sort it out.
Extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof.

Two separate issues:

1) superluminal signals are not forbidden in special relativity so long as one is not put off by back-from-the-future retro-causality.
For example Wheeler-Feynman advanced potentials that for some reason do not cancel like they do in the Cramer transaction, see also Penrose books on Libet, the data of Radin, Bierman, Bem ... and my recent proof of entanglement nonlocal signaling using non-orthogonal sender Glauber states entangled with ordinary receiver qubits (giving a talk at SLAC APS 11-11-11 - and also presented it at 100 Year StarShip Orlando DARPA-NASA meeting 10-1-11).

2) is the actual signal in OPERA superluminal, or is it a GPS error etc ?

The recent publication in ArXiv of "Measurement of the neutrino velocity with the OPERA detector in the CNGS beam" has attracted many interest due to the possible theoretical or phenomenological interpretation of the results. In this paper we analyze the results and conclude that they are in agreement with "classical" theory of relativity.
