**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 thatâ€™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. |
