    As is known, a tachyon that loses energy gains velocity according to the formulaOpen image in new window. Compare, for exaple,G. Feinberg:Phys. Rev.,159, 1089 (1967);O. M. Bilaniuk, andE. C. G. Sudarshan:Phys. Today,22 (5), 43 (1969).ADSCrossRefGoogle Scholar

    In the earlier literature this result appears as a postulate rather than a theorem of a deductive theory. Compare, for exampleG. Feinberg:Phys. Rev.,159, 1089 (1967).ADSCrossRefGoogle Scholar
