“If you think you understand quantum mechanics, you don’t.”

Richard Feynman

### What is TEW?

The Theory of Elementary Waves (TEW) is an imaginative view of Nature, based on assumptions different than those of quantum mechanics (QM). The motivation behind TEW is to understand our world while getting rid of quantum weirdness. At the top, left of this page click on "Synopsis" for a brief overview. We suggest new mathematics for the Schrödinger equation and Feynman's QED. Although the mathematical changes are small, the impact is vast. The quantum world looks very similar to the classical world of everyday experience, when viewed through TEW.

### Who is Jeff Boyd?

I am a physician and mathematician passionate about the Theory of Elementary Waves. TEW excites my imagination — but I haven't given up my day job. I love taking care of sick people; a good balance to the abstractions of math & physics. I have published almost two dozen articles on TEW in peer reviewed journals of physics and math (click on the orange button "Publications" on the left above). I hold graduate degrees from Harvard, Yale and Brown Universities, and I've presented TEW a dozen times at meetings of the American Physical Society.

### What you'll find here

Entertaining videos about Elementary Wave Theory, some of my articles published in scientific journals, and a free copy of my book: Being Sick Well. I am proud of that book because it has actually been helpful to patients suffering from chronic illnesses.
