About the Author

Dr. Stephen Blaha is an internationally known physicist with interests in Science, Society and Civilization, the Arts, and Technology. He had an Alfred P. Sloan Foundation scholarship in college. He received his Ph.D. in Physics from Rockefeller University. He has served on the faculties of several major universities. He was also a Member of the Technical Staff at Bell Laboratories, a manager at the Boston Globe Newspaper, a Director at Wang Laboratories, and President of Blaha Software Inc and of Janus Associates Inc. (NH).

Among other achievements he was a co-discoverer of the ?r potential? for heavy quark binding developing the first (and still the only demonstrable) non-abelian gauge theory with an ?r? potential; first suggested the existence of topological structures in superfluid He-3; first proposed Yang-Mills theories would appear in condensed matter phenomena with non-scalar order parameters; first developed a grammar-based formalism for quantum computers and applied it to elementary particle theories; first developed a new form of quantum field theory without divergences (thus solving a major 60 year old problem that enabled a unified theory of the Standard Model and Quantum Gravity without divergences to be developed); first developed a formulation of complex General Relativity based on analytic continuation from real space-time; first developed a generalized non-homogeneous Robertson-Walker metric that enabled a quantum theory of the Big Bang to be developed without singularities at t = 0; first generalized Cauchy?s theorem and Gauss? theorem to complex, curved multi-dimensional spaces; received Honorable Mention in the Gravity Research Foundation Essay Competition in 1978; first developed a physically acceptable theory of faster-than-light particles; first showed a universe with three complex spatial dimensions is icosahedral; first derived a new composition of extrema method in the Calculus of Variations; first quantitatively suggested that inflationary periods in the history of the universe were not needed; first proved Gödel?s Theorem implies Nature must be quantum; provided a new alternative to the Higgs Mechanism, and Higgs particles, to generate masses; first showed how to resolve logical paradoxes including Gödel?s Undecidability Theorem by developing Operator Logic and Quantum Operator Logic; first developed a quantitative harmonic oscillator-like model of the life cycle, and interactions, of civilizations; first showed how equations describing superorganisms also apply to civilizations. A recent book shows his theory applies successfully to the past 14 years of history and to new archaeological data on Andean and Mayan civilizations as well as Early Anatolian and Egyptian civilizations.

He first developed an axiomatic derivation of the forms of The Standard Model with WIMPs from geometry ? space-time properties ? The faster than light Standard Model.

He has had a major impact on a succession of elementary particle theories: his Ph.D. thesis (1970), and papers, showed that quantum field theory calculations to all orders in ladder approximations could not give scaling deep inelastic electron-nucleon scattering. He later showed the eigenvalue equation for the fine structure constant a in Johnson-Baker-Willey QED had a zero at a = 1 not 1/137 by solving the Schwinger-Dyson equations to all orders in an approximation that agreed with exact results to 8th order in a thus ending interest in this theory. In 1979 at Prof. Ken Johnson?s (MIT) suggestion he calculated the proton-neutron mass difference in the MIT bag model and found the result had the wrong sign reducing interest in the bag model. These results all appear in Physical Review papers. In the 2000?s he repeatedly pointed out the shortcomings of SuperString theory and showed that The Standard Model?s form could be derived from space-time geometry by an extension of Lorentz transformations to faster than light transformations. This deeper space-time basis greatly increases the possibility that it is part of THE fundamental theory.

In graduate school (1966-71) he wrote substantial papers in elementary particles and group theory: The Inelastic E- P Structure Functions in a Gluon Model. Phys.Lett. B40:501-502,1972; Deep-Inelastic E-P Structure Functions In A Ladder Model With Spin 1/2 Nucleons, Phys.Rev. D3:510-523,1971; Continuum Contributions To The Pion Radius, Phys.Rev. 178:2167-2169,1969; Character Analysis of U(N) and SU(N), J. Math. Phys. 10, 2156 (1969); and The Calculation of the Irreducible Characters of the Symmetric Group in Terms of the Compound Characters, (Published as Blaha?s Lemma in D. E. Knuth?s book: The Art of Computer Programming Vols. 1 ? 4).

In 1979 he developed a design for a large, ultrastable derigible or helicopter with an on-board computer for the real time measurement and analysis of gravity data to detect anomalies due to oil and metal deposits as it cruises vast regions of interest. This design has recently been implemented (2014).

In the early 1980?s Blaha was also a pioneer in the development of UNIX for financial, scientific and Internet applications: benchmarked UNIX versions showing that block size was critical for UNIX performance, developing financial modeling software, starting database benchmarking comparison studies, developing Internet-like UNIX networking (1982) and developing a hybrid shell programming technique (1982) that was a precursor to the PERL programming language. He was also the manager of the AT&T ten-year future products development database. His work helped lead to commercial UNIX on computers such as Sun Micros, IBM AIX minis, and Apple computers.

In the 1980?s he pioneered the development of PC Desktop Publishing on laser printers. and was nominated for three "Awards for Technical Excellence" in 1987 by PC Magazine for PC software products that he designed and developed.

Recently he has developed a theory of multiverses ? actual universes of which our universe is one ? with quantum particle-like properties based on the Wheeler-DeWitt equation of Quantum Gravity. He has developed a theory of a baryonic force, which had been conjectured many years ago, and estimated the strength of the force based on discrepancies in measurements of the gravitational constant G. This force, operative in 16-dimensinal space, can be used to escape from our universe in ?uniships? which are the equivalent of the faster-than-light starships proposed in the author?s earlier books. Thus travel to other universes, as well as to other stars is possible.

The author has also recently written a series of books on the serious problems of the United States and their solution as well as a book on the decline of Mankind that will follow from current social and genetic trends in Mankind.

In the past twelve years Dr. Blaha has written over 40 books on a wide range of topics. Some recent major works are: From Asynchronous Logic to The Standard Model to Superflight to the Stars, All the Universe!, SuperCivilizations: Civilizations as Superorganisms, America's Future: an Islamic Surge, ISIS, al Qaeda, World Epidemics, Ukraine, Russia-China Pact, US Leadership Crisis,The Rises and Falls of Man ? Destiny ? 3000 AD: New Support for a Superorganism MACRO-THEORY of CIVILIZATIONS From CURRENT WORLD TRENDS and NEW Peruvian, Pre-Mayan, Mayan, Anatolian, and Early Egyptian Data, with a Projection to 3000 AD, and Mankind in Decline: Genetic Disasters, Human-Animal Hybrids, Overpopulation, Pollution, Global Warming, Food and Water Shortages, Desertification, Poverty, Rising Violence, Genocide, Epidemics, Wars, Leadership Failure.

He has taught approximately 4,000 students in undergraduate, graduate and postgraduate corporate education courses primarily in major universities, and large companies and government agencies.

The above paragraphs summarize much of his work over the past forty seven years. This work is fully documented. He continues to engage in research and writing at Blaha Research.
