    ABSTRACT: A recent theoretical explanation for observed anomalous low energy nuclear phenomena which have puzzled physicists for many years is expanded on. Based on covariant relativistic quantum mechanics and historical time wave equations, it explains a large number of observed anomalous eects by supposing that nuclear masses can vary in nuclear active environments in condensed matter settings. The modied quantum wave equation originally introduced by Fock and Stueckelberg in the 1930s with signicant enhancements up to the present by Horwitz and others prove that variable masses are compatible with the principles of both quantum mechanics and relativity. They can explain all of these eects by modifying the kinematic constraints of the reaction, enhancing electron screening and quantum tunneling rates, and allowing for resonant tunneling. Some previous results are recounted, and experimental evidence based on variable radioactive decay rates and other evidence for variable masses is presented which adds some new potential support for this theory.
