My professional goal has been and still is to put my name on Einstein's scientific genealogy.

    I am claiming

        In 1994, I was on a train from Naples to Rome (Italy). I was wondering how the world appears to a moving observer. Einstein was interested in this problem and formulated his theories of relativity.

        In 2002, I was with Paul A. M. Dirac's bust at the Fine Hall Library of Princeton Univesity. This library was my primary study place while I was a graduate student there (1958-61).

        In 1962, when Dirac visited the University of Maryland for one week, I served as a personal assistant to him. I learned a lesson from him about the blank spot in Einstein's theory of relativity.

    1. Einstein left a empty spot when he formulated his theory of relativity in 1905.

    2. Paul A. M Dirac (Nobel 1933) was the first one to see this spot. How did I know?

      In 1962, when I was a first-year assistant professor at the University of Maryland, I served as a his personal assistant when Dirac visited the University for one week. Directly from Dirac, I learned a lesson about this empty spot in Einstein's world.

      However, before 1960, Dirac did not have enough experimental data for moving hydrogen atoms (moving bound states) to observe the relativistic effect on the moving hydrogen atom.

      After 1960, he became too old. Click here for his Wikipedia page.

    3. Dirac wrote beautiful sentences and beautiful formulas. Have you seen any figures or graphs in his papers and books?

      I filled in this spot using the high-energy experimental data available during the later years in the 20th Century, and the analytic geometry (with figures) I learned during my war-time high school years (1951-54) in Korea. The Korean War lasted from 1950 to 1953.

    4. It is very difficult for my colleagues to accept these claims, because they have to place me between them and Einstein, thus above them.

      They all have the Herod Complex, because they were all valedictorians during their own high school graduations. Since I have my own Herod complex, I understand them, and I like them.

    5. What is the Herod Complex? Herod was a pro-Roman king of Israel. He heard the story that a new king named Jesus was born. Herod could not accept a different king while he was the king. He ordered all the new-born babies to be killed. This Bible story is well known.

      Likewise, I was the No.1 boy in my high school class. Who else could be No.1? This is the Herod complex shared by all of my professional colleagues.

    6. On the other hand, I am making progress in the public media without Herod-style conflict of interest with me. Let us hear what they say about me?

  • You can hear my interview with the Voice Only.

  • In this interview, I am making efforts to bring to your attention the following aspects of my life and my professional goal.

    1. My Korean background. Since I came from an Asian country, Americans assume I am a buddhist. No.

      My Christian background is much stronger than those of my American and European colleagues in science, even though I do not regard myself as a religious person. I formulated the concept of Herod Complex for the murderous competitive world of research scientists.

    2. My early interest in electrical instruments and long-distance communications. During my hign school years, I had a shortwave radio listeining to the world. I then became eager to talk to the world. Indeed, the internet technologoy was developed to satisfy my personal need. Click here for a story.

    3. My interest in Einstein and my decision to go to Princeton to meet Einstein. On March 12, 1958, while I was a fourth-year student at the Carnegie Institute of Technology, I received a letter from Princeton University telling me that I ranked very high among the 15 students admitted to the graduate program in physics. This was the happiest day in my life. Go to my my Princeton page.

      Going to Princeton meant talking with Einstein. Einstein died there in 1955, I was going there in 1958. How could I talk to him? Click here to see how I talked to Einstein.

    4. Professional goal = Get the full recognition for my the research result, which was to bridge the gap between Niels Bohr (hydrogen atom) and Albert Einstein (moving objects). Go to Bohr and Einstein on moving hydrogen.

  3. Myself.

Recognizing Myself

  • People say this and that about me, but I am the person who can tell most accurately the story about myself. In order to see my ability and limitations, let us look at this bridge:

      Two mountains in physics.
      Bohr and Einstein (1925). Photo from the public domain.

  • One hundred years ago, Niels Bohr was intensely interested in the electron orbit of the hydrogen atom, while Albert Einstein was worrying about how things appear to a moving observer or how they appear to the observer at rest when they flying with speed comparable with that of light. Their concerns became, respectively, quantum mechanics and special theory of relativity.

  • Bohr and Einstein met occasionally to discuss physics. Then, did they talk about moving hydrogen atoms?

  • If they did, there are no written records to indicate their discussion.

  • I am not the first person to raise this question. Many distinguished physicists worried about this question of moving bound states, including the hydrogen atom, in Einstein's Lorentz-covariant world.

    2. 100 years of continuous history since Bohr and Einstein.

  • I was able to synthesize their works to construct one picture of moving bound states. For this job, did I have to develop a new mathematics? No. I used the mathematics I learned during my high-school years in Korea (1951-54), as shown in this figure:

  • I came to the United States in 1954 after my high-school graduation in Korea. At that time, Korea was regarded as one of the hopeless countries with the total destruction from the war (1950-53). Korea now is one of the ten (8th or 10th) most advanced countries in the world. Then, what was the dynamics behind this transformation? The answer is very simple. Koreans believe in the education of their children.

    Even during the destructive war years (1950-53), Koreans kept educating their children in their high schools. Those boys and girls produced the miracle of transforming their country. I am a product of this educational system, and I am thankful to my high school and to my teachers.

  • However, this does not mean Korea's secondary educational system is perfect. Koreans still think public or government-supported schools are superior to private schools. They still could not think their schools, either public or private, can be improved by contributions made by their graduates, while this idea is a common sense in the United States. Harvard, Princeton, and Yale? They became great universities thanks to the contributions made by their alumni.

    I am very happy to tell you I made my contribution to Korea along this direction. See the following images.

    My high school was set up in 1946, without history when I was a student (1948-54). The history was ours to make. God gave us the empty land as His best gift.

  • My high school has a short history. It took many years for some of our graduates to reach the position of commanding large sums of money. These days, they seem to enjoy investing some of their fortunes to their high school. I am very happy to have contributed this idea of alumni contribution, as you can see from this image:

  • Even though my high-school background is my most precious asset, it is not enough for me to brag about in the world. I spent more than 60 years at the University of Maryland, near Washington DC (capital city of the United States). Thus, Maryland background? Not strong enough!

  • I still have to use my Princeton background with Einstein's name to talk to the world. Did I talk to Einstein while I was there? If Yes, how could I talk to a person in Heaven? Click here for my answer.

    Furthermore, I still had to learn how to apply the above-mentioned high-school mathematics to the theories of Einstein's physics.

My Princeton Background

  • On March 12, 1958, during my senior year at the Carnegie Institute of Technology in Pittsburgh, I received a letter from Princeton University telling me that I am one of the 15 students admitted to their graduate program in physics. This was the happiest day in my life. Going to Princeton meant meeting Albert Einstein, even though he died there in 1955.

      While preparing a paper for publication (Princeton 1961).
    I went there in July of 1958 and routinely followed their program to get my PhD degree in 1961. I was asked to stay there for one additional year as postdoc. In 1962, I became an assistant professor at the University of Maryland, near the city of Washington, DC. (capital city of the United States).

    While I was at Princeton, I noticed something wrong there. Among the professors there, Eugene Paul Wigner (1902-1995, Nobel 1965) was totally isolated from the rest of the of the department. They said Wigner is gone. Yet, I started studying his 1939 paper on internal space-time symmetries of elementary particles, and continued studying the same paper after I came to the University of Maryland in 1962.

    In 1966, I studied this 1939 paper more aggressively after finding out Wigner was isolated from the rest of Princeton, not because of Wigner, but because the rest of Princeton was not smart enough to understand this paper. Click here for a detailed story.

  • In 1983, with my younger Korean colleagues, I published a paper containing this table:

    Contents of Einstein's E = mc2

    Particle Massive/Slow between Massless/Fast
    Einstein Energy
    E = p2/2m E =
    (m2 + p2)1/2
    E = cp
    Wigner Helicity
    spin, Gauge
    S1 S2
    Little Groups
    Gauge Trans.

    This table clearly defines Wigner's coordinate in Einstein's world. Click here for a detailed story.

    When I showed this table to Professor Wigner, he became very happy and asked me to publish papers with him, and I published seven papers with him. Thus I became known as Wigner's student, even though my thesis advisor was Sam Treimen.

  • After establishing myself as Wigner's student, I became politically strong enough (very unfortunate word) to publish a paper in Physical Review Letters (the most prestigious journal in physics) containing this table:

    Further Contents of Einstein's E = mc2

    Massive/Slow between Massless/Fast
    E = p2/2m Einstein's
    E=(m2 + p2)1/2
    E = cp
    Spin, Gauge
    S1 S2
    Little Group
    Gauge Trans.
    Bound States
    Quark Model
    Parton Picture

  • The blue row in this table is based on the earlier papers I published mostly with Marilyn Noz on how the same proton is regarded as a quantum bound state of Gell-Mann's quarks when it is at rest, while it appears like a collection of Feynman's partons when it moves with the speed close to that of light.

  • I received my PhD degree from Princeton in 1961, seven years after high school graduation in 1954. This means that I did much of the ground work for the degree during my high school years.

    Furthermore, I claim that I fixed up a soft spot in Einstein's theory of relativity using the mathematics I learned during my high-school years (1952-53), that means during the war years of the Korean War (1950-53).
