The Christmas Tree Light-Sail Smorgasbord. Notes on Novel Light-Sail Propulsion Methods. Volume 61.
In Volumes 58 thru 61 of this series, expressions for propulsive powers for plausible substantially light-speed hybrid force beams are considered including beams for photon-gluon-electron-neutrinos, photon-gluon-muon-neutrinos, and photon-gluon-tauon-neutrinos. The new expressions are to be considered appropriately inserted into each of the two lengthy expressions previously formulated in this series. Note the implied iteration of similarly phrased power terms. This is so because of the assumed possibility of spacecraft having multiple similar systems that each operate in distinctly specific manners on the respective beam types. Also note the scripted operator, "photon-gluon-electron-neutrino, photon-gluon-muon-neutrino, photon-gluon-tauon-neutrino" used the new power terms. This operator is included to allow for the possibility of parallel sub-systems that operate on each of the three blended force beams simultaneously and/or operation of two or all three of the blended force beams on the same system.
