                                                  (I've added a few footnotes since the original publication and included a design to generate the corresponding electromagnetic
                                                   signal using a cavity magnetron. The dimensions of the larger spherical cavity have to be calculated from the paper, (*)) The paper
                                                   recovers the proportionality in the spacings of the spectral lines of the Balmer series, which can be measured using a hydrogen discharge
                                                   tube and a diffraction grating.  
                                            59. Some Arguments for the Wave Equation in Quantum Theory 2 (pdf), (published in Open Journal of Mathematical Sciences (Volume 6)), (2022)
                                                   (This provides the theoretical justification for the idea that if an electromagnetic system is in thermal equilibrium and doesn't radiate
                                                   at infinity for all obsevers, then the charge and current obeys the relations given in (58). The result can probably be strengthened without
                                                   the assumption of thermal equilibrium, a case which is considered in (72). It seems clear that in the design of (58), as the charge is confined,
                                                   the configuration shouldn't radiate at infinity, by Rutherford's observation for atomic systems. The vanishing of the magnetic field in (58) can be
                                                   checked by zero induction through a loop.The signal can be detected by deflection of electrons; replacing the deflecting coils on a cathode ray
                                                   tube with a wave guide.) I've added a  lemma at the end and filled in a proof since the original publication.

                                                  I've added a footnote since the original publication. (files for driving a motor to alter the potential along a maximal reaction path in
                                                  electrolysis of water 1 2 (matlab), 3 (Arduino)), Graphs showing the difference between equilibrium and maximal reaction lines 1 2 3 4,
                                                  we currently keep temperature and pressure in  electrolyzers fixed. I've included the basic design and a further design more compatible
                                                  with existing PEM technology. Water can be difficult to pressurise, so currently the best strategy for a prototype is to alter the temperature
                                                  of a 2% sulfuric acid or 1% sodium bicarbonate solution, while altering the direct current through a rectifier using the motor, a potentiometer
                                                  and an L298N driver.You can check the potentials with a multimeter. You can get basic control of a motor using Arduino, with the following
                                                  circuit. Here is a table showing the different amounts of gas production from electrolysis, using varying temperature and potential, these results
                                                  are theoretically justified. Here is the motor in action.

                                                  (I've included another design to generate the corresponding fundamental electromagnetic signal using an antenna. The three fundamental
                                                   modes and one reverse mode, as in the paper, could be simulated with four antennae or combined directly in one. The approximation
                                                   becomes better with the use of an n-gon and large n, instead of a pentagon, (**) The field created by the inducting loop can be cancelled
                                                   by winding the inner approximation like in one side of a transformer. The signal can be detected by electromagnetic induction, using a
                                                   circular loop for the antenna, attached to a radio receiver, or using an oscilloscope to measure the emf.)

A book I wrote on nonstandard analysis.

A paper I wrote on aesthetics and geometry;

                                            78.  Cosmati Pavements: The Art of Geometry, (published in Bridges Leeuwarden Proceedings (2008))

 I've included a design to achieve igntion and control the firing rate wirelessly in a car or aircraft engine and a design to achieve controlled nuclear fusion. Both ideas rely
on the telecommunication
designs of (58) and (63), the fusion idea is also related to the papers (60) and (61). These connections might lead to further integration between
these fields, the automotive, aviation and fusion industries.

  My PhD adviser, at M.I.T, was Professor Byunghan Kim, who is an expert in the area of simple theories. A simple theory is a structure in which certain amalgamation
properties hold. You can find, here, some geometric pictures of 1-amalgamation and 3-amalgamation (1>2>3), used, particularly, in the second paper. My PhD thesis
was mainly concerned with developing properties of minimal structures in such theories. A minimal structure is, very roughly speaking, an abstract version of an algebraic
curve. Since then, I have been a research fellow at Edinburgh University, The University of Camerino and The University of Exeter, specialising in the geometry of
such curves. My masters thesis at Manchester University was on the Model Theory of Lie Algebras (dvi).

(*)  An attempt to recreate this design could be dangerous, due to the increase in charge density and current inside the spherical cavity.Note that this design is not the
      same as putting a hollow metallic sphere inside a microwave oven; the radiation caused by a cavity magnetron would induce a current through the metal and cause
      arcing, due to the changing magnetic field. The radiation generated by this design should have a zero magnetic field, though it can still accelerate charge due to the
      electric field. 

(**)  This design is probably safer. It differs from a conventional transmitting antenna in that the current and charge density, at a given time, changes along different
         portions of the loop.
