H. J. Weber (Theorist)


Faculty member of the UVa Physics Department since 1967 with a PhD from Frankfurt University in Theoretical Nuclear Physics (1965); Diploma in Math. (1961).

Research has been in relativistic few body nuclear and particle physics including electroweak form factors of the nucleon, transition form factors to nucleon resonances, deep inelastic structure functions of baryons from quark models and the spin of the proton. Current work is in Math since 2005 including classical polynomials, prime number theory. Recent samples are

"Strings Of Prime Values By Polynomial Extensions Of Arithmetical Functions," submitted

My current record string of 760 distinct primes for integer n in [-380,379] of the extension polynomial of input polynomial E(n)=n^2+n-A for a 70 decimal digit number A given at the end of a paper by Hugh C. Williams et al., 528 distinct primes are generated by applying my extension method to the Euler-type polynomial n^2+n+A, A=1712329866165608771 for n in [-264,263]. Compare these to Euler's 40 primes for n^2+n+41 and the record in 2013 of 58 primes for a sextic. The 19 decimal digit A is from Chapt.4 of R.A. Mollin's "Quadratics," CRC Press (1996).

Since 1992 I have assumed responsibility for "Mathematical Methods For Physicists,"Acad.Press (1995),4/e,(with G.B. Arfken). The 5/e has come out in 2000, 6/e in 2005, 7/e with F. Harris in 2013. If you have comments, please send an e-mail to me to the address given below.
