After getting his math degree from Brown University, then going to medical school and working a decade as a researcher at the National Institutes of Health, Jeff Boyd was Chairman of Behavioral Health at a Yale teaching hospital. Boyd has advanced degrees from Harvard, Yale, Brown, and Case Western Reserve Universities. He has published nearly two dozen scholarly articles in peer reviewed journals of mathematics and physics, and has posted dozens of YouTube videos. Currently he is producing YouTube videos of 18 minutes (Ted Talk length) with no equations. His latest videos are about the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Theory of Elementary Waves was discovered by Lewis E. Little after thirty years of hard work alone. The Eureka moment was when Little realized that particles follow Elementary Waves backwards. Little taught TEW to his cousin, Jeff Boyd. At first Jeff was just a spokesman. Little assigned to Boyd the task of developing a mathematics to explicate TEW, since Boyd is the one with a mathematics degree. Boyd has become the primary spokesman for that mathematics. Jeff originated the idea that a Schrödinger wave packet is part of an Elementary Wave (Æ) traveling in the opposite direction.
The two guys had a fight in 2013 and have not talked to each other since. The history of their relationship can be found here: Boyd, J. H. (2020) Journal of Advances in Mathematics 18, 82-117. https://doi.org/10.24297/jam.v18i.8656
Jeff’s YouTube videos are recognized as hilarious, intuitive and provide a clear window into the world of TEW.
Those whose minds have been turned into a Möbius strip by quantum weirdness say Jeff cured them of their mental anguish. He is famous for saying,
“Just because you are insane doesn’t mean you are wrong.”
Jeff Boyd was appointed a Reserve Medical Officer by President Ronald Reagan.
