Thanks! It takes time for basic work to develop sometimes, at other times there is a sudden transition, such as 1925 – 1927 in quantum mechanics. However basic work is always important.
Your reasons for your ten choices provide great insight into your work and show how your work has followed a unique path over 30 years of research. In particular, your choices give a flavour of how scientific progress develops over a prolonged period.

Subject: Top Ten Papers : Reasons Why
I note that Kerry Pendergast, the science master at West Monmouth School Pontypool, asked for the reasons for this choice, so I give them as follows.
1) This records the introduction at Aberystwyth of the rotational velocity correlation function for the analysis of far infra red data of all kinds, it enabled a triple comparsion between data, theory and simulation and is major theme of my work.
2) This records the introduction at Aberystwyth of the memory function method to the far infra red, a method in which the friction coefficient of the Langevin equation (Markovian process) is extended to a memory function hierarchy (non-Markovian process). The Langevin equation itself gives the Debye plateau in the far infra red, and is unphysical because the rotational velocity correlation function is undefined in the Debye relaxation process.
3) This is a paper written at Aberystwyth of forty four pages, invited by Mansel Davies, summarizing the work for which I was awarded the Harrison Memorial Prize and Meldola Medal of the Royal Society of Chemistry of London upon recommendation of the National Physical Laboratory of the British Government.
4) This paper from Aberystwyth introduced the gamma process of the far infra red, which I realized to be linked to the much lower frequenvy alpha and beta processes already known. So the complete spectrum stretches over an immense twelve decades of frequency, and its description is still a challenge to molecular dynamics computer simulation and theory.
5) These five parts, written at Aberystwyth, introduced the technique of field applied computer simulation, which I later developed extensively. The first external field to be applied was a static electric field, and it was found that the simulation produced the correct theoretical Langevin functions at all orders. The simulation could therefore be used to produce a variety of results which could not be produced by experiment or theory. Various other fields were used later, notably a circularly polarized electromagnetic field in the Evans / Pelkie animation from Cornell of the inverse Faraday effect. So the animation shows that the code works fine, and all the code is avaialble on http://www.aias.us.
6) This records the disovery at Aberystwyth of the mechanism in the molecule fixed frame through which moelcular rotation and molecular translation influence each other. This had not been found using theory or experiment, only by computer simulation. This mechanism is important in general relativity (in a much broader context) because it governs the interaction of gravitation (translation) with any kind of spinning or rotating field (electromagnetic, weak, strong, fermionic etc.).
7) This records the first computer simulation at Zurich of the inverse Faraday effect, the magnetization of any type of matter by a circularly polarized electromagnetic field of any frequency.
8) This records the inference at Cornell of the fundamnetal spin field of electromagentic radiation of any frequency. It is obserevd in the inverse Farday effect and signals the fact that the electromagnetic field is the Cartan torsion of ECE field theory. Mansel Davies thought in 1992 that I shouls have been awarded a Nobel Prize in chemistry for this discovery – he was a Nobel Prize advisor in chemistry. The award of a Civil List Pension by Parliament is of much more historical significance than a Nobel Prize, because only one Civil List Pension has been awarded to a chemist since Michael Faraday. So this work has now been recognised democratically by Parliament in a much broader context than academic.
9) This paper from Craigcefnparc records the discovery of the wave equation that unifies wave (or quantum) mechanics and general relativity in an objective manner. This was a major aim of both Albert Einstein and Elie Cartan for many years.
10) This paper from Craigcefnparc records the development of the field equations of elcetrodynamics within ECE theory, a major advance from the standard model in which the electromagnetic field is still the nineteenth century entity of Maxwell, Heaviside, Lorentz and Poincare. In ECE theory the electromagnetci field is a field of general relativity, unified with all other fields geometrically.
British and Commonwealth Civil List Scientist, Chief Scientific Advisor to the National Assembly of Wales.
