I've read this and the author's prior two papers on multi-dimensional time.
It appears that his mathematical formulation is able describe a variety
of quantum-mechanical properties by adding one or more additional time
dimensions to the classical derivations of motion, momentum, energy,
etc. As a result he ends up with a 3-space, 3-time dimension theory that
is simple and elegant. (The additional two time dimensions are closed
loops on the scale of the Plank length.)
I'm not nearly knowledgeable enough on the subject to pick out any
logical errors. However, the papers are somewhat disorganized so it's
hard to see what assumptions are being made or what contradictions with
established theories or experiment there might be. This also may be a
language issue as it's clear English is not the author's native tongue.
But--the papers do not make any testable predictions that I can see,
which is a big red flag.
In addition, the author is a "wave function collapse" kind of guy. I'm
curious how his derivation would hold up from the MWI perspective.
