Jack Sarfatti I state my bias, and I hope I will prove wrong, but I think large scale variations in inertia is not a viable idea.
Even if it could be done, I think it would be suicidal destroying the Star Ship. I am also skeptical of the
1/G effect, but again that's because the DARPA-NASA paper I gave in Orlando on Oct 1, 2011 on "low power warp drive" is a G effect, more specifically, (index of refraction)^4G/c^4 amplifying the coupling of the applied stress-energy current density tensor Tuv to the WARP FIELD Guv in Einstein's 1916 classical field theory of the geometrodynamical field. With Bose-Einstein Condensates (BEC) we can get (index of refraction) ~ 10^10 giving an effective amplification of the G-coupling of 10^40. Furthermore, with a high Tc BEC that is also a meta-material with negative electric permittivity and negative magnetic permeability. Therefore, an applied EM field energy density ~ E.D + B.H < 0 we have "exotic matter" giving a repulsive anti-gravity effect.
Jim Woodward has made spurious objections to my scheme in his book. I will briefly address them in this introductory commentary.
Current experiments using laser light passing though atomic BEC's will not show the effect in any obvious dramatic way because the measurement is very short lived and it is at high frequency using real photons f = kc in Glauber coherent states. Furthermore the atomic BECs are not metamaterials so certainly no anti-gravity would be expected. More importantly, I am talking about non-radiative near EM field sources in Tuv where f =/= kc. These near field sources induce near Warp Fields. We are not interested at all in GRAVITY WAVES! They are leaks in the WARP FIELD DYNAMO to be avoided.
For the moment using weak fields in first order perturbation theory against a non-dynamical globally flat Minkowski background,
guv = (Special Relativity Metric)uv + huv
guv(k,f) = huv(k,f)
Einstein's NEAR FIELD equations are approximately (we really need convolution integrals - so this is very rough).
Guv(k,f) + (index of refraction k,w)^4GTuv(k,f)/c^4 = 0
T00(k,f) ~ E(k,f).D(k,f) + B(k,f).H(k,f) < 0 etc.
Note, for example, the metric NEAR field of the Earth of mass M for static detectors at fixed r is
g00 = 1 - 2GM/c^2r = - 1/grr etc.
This is a Glauber coherent state of NON_RADIATIVE VIRTUAL LONGITUDINAL POLARIZED GRAVITONS f = 0, all k analogous to the Coulomb field of a charge in its rest frame that is a coherent Glauber state of f = 0 all k virtual longitudinal polarized photons.
The rest massless SPIN 1 photon has one longitudinal polarization in the near field with two transverse polarizations in far radiation field.
The rest massless SPIN 2 graviton has THREE NEAR FIELD VIRTUAL POLARIZATIONS that do not appear as FAR FIELD GRAVITY WAVES with only two transverse polarizations.
AGAIN WE ARE NOT AT ALL INTERESTED IN THESE GRAVITY WAVES FOR CONSTRUCTING STAR GATE TIME MACHINES AND WARP DRIVE DYNAMOS. We are only interested in what electrical engineers call induction fields both EM and GRAVITY.
In terms of quantum field theory, we are not interested in the poles of the Feynman propagators/S-Matrix in the complex energy plane. We are only interested in the stuff away from the poles of the S-Matrix.
