Many thanks, the de Clifford Family can be traced back to early Norman times on Celtic Royal Genealogy and the Troubridge Family may be there too. Henry VIII was descended from Henry III Plantagenet (Planta Genesta) through his mother Margaret Beaufort. As you know, his father was Henry VII Tudor descended from Tewdwr Mawr, my direct ancestor. Henry VII was the only Lancastrian left after the Wars of the Roses and his claim to the throne went back to Henry III. I will draft up a more detailed genealogy. The Seymour Family were also Norman, St. Mour. My oldest Norman line is de Turbeville, supposed to have been in the Battle Abbey Roll, but recent research shows that only fifteen companions of Guillaume de Normandie (William of Normandy) can be proven from only three contemporary documents. The Battle Abbey Roll is nowhere near contemporary. I listed these in an earlier posting. Among these is the Beaumont Family.

Hello Myron, This is quite interesting and could be pursued a little further, I believe the Clifford part of my family is from a Welsh line with my paternal great-grandmother under the surname Thomas. I have seen Clifford Castle near Ross, it was quite an impressive stronghold in its day, although the village is now merely small and pretty. My mother traced her ancestry to Rear Admiral, sir Thomas Troubridge (1st Baronet of Plymouth) – whose title was awarded whilst he was one of Nelson’s captains in 1799.
I shall have to see if more can be made from these scraps of information from my sister.

This was Henry III Plantagenet to Edmund Plantagenet, to his daughter Mary who married Henry V de Percy, to Henry VI de Percy, Earl of Northumberland, to Henry Hotspur de Percy, born 1364, ally of Owain Glyndw^r, to his daughter Elizabeth who married John de Clifford (b. 1389), to his daughter Mary who married Philip Wentworth, to Henry Wentworth (b.1448), to his daughter Margery Wentworth, mother of Jane Seymour, third wide of Henry VIII, her distant cousin, also descended on his mother’s side (Margaret Beaufort) from Henry III Plantagenet. Henry VIII and Jane Seymour were also distant cousins via the early Norman Efa Marshal as described earlier on this blog. The de Clifford Family were those of a powerful Marcher Baron, and later became the Clifford Family. It may be that Simon Clifford is a descendant.

This looks useful, I can set up the general equations for any potential and focus in on this nuclear potential.

Perturbation of Nucleus

Subject: Perturbation of Nucleus

This is a very good summary, and I will work on it shortly, firstly in the Dirac type approximation based on UFT85.

Fully agreed. The background of my comment was the following. We solved the radial part of the Schrödinger equation numerically for the background radiation effects in Hydrogen (paper 85 or so). We could do a similar try to compute the states of a nuclear wave function in a given nuclear potential. I found models for this potential on the internet. The potential could be “disturbed” by a wave from spacetime. Such an approach by a Schrödinger-like equation is certainly more critical than for atomic electrons because of neglection of realtivistic effects, but they can partially be accounted for by what is known as the scalar-relativistic approach (without spin orbit coupling). I do not know if all this will be handable with a reasonable effort but we could give it a try.

Agreed with this, this is why I suggested a Young experiment with two interfering electron beams, so the interaction with the electromagnetic beam results in a shift of the Young interferogram. That would give a new type of test of the Compton effect. The usual test as you know consists of measuring the shift in the electromagnetic (gamma ray ) frequency scattered from a metal foil. This new type of quantization has a lot of possibilities, so the various disasters of the old theory encounterd in UFT158 to UFT166 can be put back together again with this new theory. The addition of a Coulomb potential would also be very interesting – the most pressing problem is the explanation of LENR, so a nuclear potential would be the most interesting. I will put in a potential term next and go as far as I can analytically. As you know the solution of the Dirac equation for the H atom already needs the computer. It can be done analytically, but it is very complicated. However, it is possible to use approximation schemes. The basic problem is how does a low energy nuclear reaction occur. One answer would be the absorption of a quantum of spacetime energy into the nucleus. The photon is one example of a quantum of spacetime energy, the photon being absorbed into the electronic structure of an atom or molecule.

Isn’t the frequency dependent term in Eq.(21) independent of space coordinates? This should give a constant shift in energy since the expectation value is equal to the frequency term. In a self-consistent calculation the states itself will be affected. For a free electron there is a continuous energy spectrum. The solution is an electronic plane wave, with energy according to the frequency terms. A case where the electron is in a bound state would be more interesting, for example in an atom, or a nucleon in a core potential. An expression for the potential energy is needed to handle this in a Schrödinger like equation.

Hierch Factor and Citations for P. W. Higgs

Subject: Hierch Factor and Citations for P. W. Higgs

I went though Google Scholar manually for Peter Higgs and found only five well cited articles in about half a century. I worked out his Hirsch factor manually and found it to be only 10, not enough for tenure. There is a total of about 6,000 citations, but 5,000 of these are for three very old articles. Furthermore, UFT224 and UFT225 refute the basics of Higgs boson theory in many ways. Anyone can check my calculations by using Google Scholar. The Hirsch index h is simple minded, it is calculated with h papers each with h citations in other papers, and that’s it. This casual research of mine bears out the heavy international criticism of CERN as empty propaganda. Similarly the theories of Hawking and Penrose have been refuted in many ways they are of historica linterest only. This illustrates the problem of the cult of the personality in science. The cult of the presonality is exactly what Francis Bacon tried to get rid of: it does not admit of fallibility or error, and is the opposite of scholarship.

Hirsch Index and Citations

Subject: Hirsch Index and Citations

I decided to try to calculate my Hirsch impact factor manually using Google Scholar, plus number of citations. I also used the gadget given in Google Scholar to calculate it. The results show that I am probably among the most cited scientists in the world.

Name Number of Google Scholar Entries H Index Citations

“M. W. Evans” 5,720 40 7,338
“Myron Evans” 481 21 2,497
Manual about 27 at least 5,000

The problem with the gadget is that it only has half my output of about a thousand papers for “Myron Evans”, and mixes me up with four or five other scientists with the same name “M. W. Evans”. The manual result 27 is close to the average brought up by the gadget, 30. The top 1% of physicists must have accumulated 2,073 citations according to wikipedia. I am way above this cut. There are many very well cited publications down to the Hirsch index cut at about 27, and then a very long tail of publications each well cited but below 27, so they do not count for the Hirsch index. The latter is therefore very primitive and very rough, but without doubt puts me near the top in the world, Hirsch index plus total citations. Papers on the ECE websites are included by Google Scholar. The scientometrics developed by AIAS are vastly superior to Hirsch or just counting citations, but Hirsch plus total citations is the method used for prizes, funding, etc. My best work has been done in the last decade, but it is uniformly well cited over forty years of productivity and quality. In comparison with the Nobel Laureate Brian Josephson of Cardiff for example I am way out ahead of him, with the greatest of respect to him.

Dirac Type Approximations with an Extra Potential

Subject: Dirac Type Approximations with an Extra Potential

This is of inerest to a range of problems, such as LENR, and I will give the general theory next. The extra potential will cause an extra spin orbit coupling and an extra Darwin term. These effects can happen within the nucleus. An additional mechanism of absorption of a quantum of spacetime can also be used, giving an additional source of energy. The nucleus can conceivably absorb this quantum of spacetime energy, so protons or neutron energy levels are affected.

227(6): Dirac Type Quantization of the Compton Effect

Author: metric345
Subject: 227(6): Dirac Type Quantization of the Compton Effect

This is a new type of quantization of the Compton effect which leads to a change in the electron wave function as in eq. (21). This equation can be solved by computer and graphed. The change in the electron wave function can be measured accurately in a Young interferometer with two interfering electron beams, one beam interacting with a laser or radio frequency beam. This method can be extended to a photon with mass without any of the problems of Einstein / de Broglie quantization (UFT158 ff.) and finally can be extended to the nuclear wave function in LENR.

Hundredth Anniversary of the Discovery of Dan yr Ogof

Author: metric345
Subject: Hundredth Anniversary of the Discovery of Dan yr Ogof

This is the famous discovery by our mutual ancestral cousins, Tommy and Jeff Morgan. My late father Edward Ivor (22nd April 1922 to 12th Jan. 2000) mentioned them briefly to me and knew them when he was growing up at Y Grithig. My late uncle Raymond Vivian mentioned that he helped with the scientific investigation of Ogof yr Esgyrn in about 1940, when he was about seven years old. I am so tied up with work now that I can hardly move, but I will try to find time to see Henrhyd Isaf and Melin Llech. Is there any chance of our mutual cousin giving us the Potter gathering a free tour of Dan yr Ogof? I cycled up there when I was about fifteen and saw the inside of the caves. I recall my father taking my sister Gwenydd and myself to see Grithig (at the sight of which he became elated) and also showing us the mysterious, very ancient, outflow of Ogof Ffynnon Ddu, fifty yards from Grithig, and Ogof Agen Allwedd on the way to Penwyllt. He was of course a fluent Welsh speaker with the original Glyn Tawe Silurian dialect. His ashes were spread, as he wished, over the rugged and commanding hillside behind Grithig (“the scarry or rocky place”). He grew up in the depths of the Great Depression. I wrote an elegy for him in my second book of poetry, a strict metre cywydd. He was much closer to his mother Gwenllian than to his father, William John, an independent character. As you know, Gwenllian drowned in September 1944, and I sense that the immediate family never recovered. I was born on May 26th 1950, so never knew Gwenllian. I have never seen photographs of William John or Gwenllian, and those would be very welcome. Rev. Alun Brookfield may allow a grave stone on the spot where are buried, not far from the church. I think that that is long overdue and I can cover the cost as the Squire in the family. I think that the best verse to accompany the englyn of this morning is Mathew 5.5:

Gwyn eu byd y rhai addfwyn; canys hwy a etifeddant y ddaear.
Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth.

The Brecon and Radnor Express commemorates today the discovery of the caves at Dan-yr-ogof, one hundred years ago this month.

It might be worth your while sometime calling in on the present owners of Henrhyd Isaf and seeing what old relics etc they have of previous occupants. I once called on spec. on a house just outside Carmarthen which I knew, via the census, to have been occupied by a great uncle before 1900. The people living there had only been there about five years, but they had heard of the family and produced a photo from before 1900 of him and his wife outside the house. The photo apparently came with the house.

There again I bet that you will pick up a lot of info at the big Potter meet whenever that occurs.

Subject: Re: Fw: Family History

This is a group that I constructed consisting of cousins or cousins by marriage: Stuart Davies (Morgan Awbrey), Tony Hibbert (Morgan Awbrey), John Davies Dolorgan (Sir Dafydd Gam), Chris Davies (my direct line back to Edward Evans Llanigon), Dewi Lewis (married to a Havard cousin), Carole Hopkin (from William Hopkin Cwm Nant y Moel, Craig Cefn Parc, sister of Mary Hopkin), Rhianne Griffiths (Morgan Awbrey), Derrick Potter (Morgan Potter) and Robbert Potter (Morgan Potter). I agree that keeping photographs is very important. I would be very interested in seeing a photograph of my grandfather, William John Evans Y Grithig. Derrick’s sister Mavis mentioned that she had one. I have never seen a photograph of him. His second wife was Gwenllian Potter Pewyllt and Y Grithig, daughter of William John Potter Penwyllt and Hannah Thomas, Henrhyd Isaf, Coelbren, grand daughter of David Potter originally of Worth in Sussex and Rachel Morgan, who was the daughter of William Morgan, younger brother of Morgan Morgan Craig y Nos of the Royal Celtic line of Tewdwr Mawr, Tywysog Deau Cymru, the Tudor ancestor of Queen Elizabeth II.
