1. e-mail 26.3.2021

Dear Mr. Williams,
 
first of all I want to know if you cited my Kaluza research in your papers, for instance here:
"The Nature of the Fifth Dimension in Classical Relativity"
AIP Conference Proceedings 1103, 243 (2009); https://doi.org/10.1063/1.3115502
 
My book on Kaluza and some of my articles had been published in 2003, 2005 and 2007.
Have you already cited them in your papers?
And also here:
Journal of Gravity, ID 901870 December 2, 2014. "This research paper is the first English-language evaluation of the full Kaluza field equations under the cylinder …"
 
Have you cited in this paper in 2014 my work on Kaluza and Einstein? (The second edition of my Kaluza book have been published in 2009). You could find it also in the Library of Congress in Washington, you could have find it online. Have you cited it?
 
Best regards,
Daniela Wuensch

2. e-mail 27.3.2021: interest in Kaluza history yes, but please with quoting

Dear Mr. Williams,
 
Your message was very, very disappointing! There is a French proverb about it: „Qui s’excuse, s’acuse“!
 
(I really missed the „I am sorry to not have quoted your works, Missis Wuensch“.)
 
There are rules in science - and by the way, perhaps you will take notice of the fact that the history of science is also a science! These rules are: You must cite
every publication which has be published on the topic before you submit your work for publication.

 
It seems to me that you don’t want to know anything of these rules, nor respect them.
 
„I didn’t know of your publications“ or "I was completely unaware of you and your work“ as you have written in your last Email can not be accepted as an excuse: A sciencist have to inform himself about the works which have been published before he submitted his article and has to quote them. As I already have written you: Not only my english articles on Kaluza were accessible in internet (Annalen der Physik for instance since 2003), in the Library of Congres in Washington and elsewhere, but also all my work in German was accessible on internet for instance also in wikipedia.de, where you could have find an entire article on all my publications.
Or you even do not know wikipedia.de? Do you perhaps know that Kaluza was German?
 
There are other US-physicists who have informed themselves and discovered my works already in 2002 on their own, for instance Paul Halpern, who discovered himself my Phd work from 2000 on Kaluza in the University Library in Goettingen (also accessible online for everybody).
 
It’s also interesting to here that you knew the works of Mr. Goenner but not my works. Does it mean that Mr. Goenner also didn’t cited my works, which he knew very good? Very surprising! Neither you nor Mr. Goenner are quoting my works? What a big surprise!
 
I don’t like to exchange emails with people who do not respect the citations rules in science - in any science.
 
Till you will correct your mistake publicly and cite my works in an article on this topic - on the topic „I didn’t know the works of Daniela Wuensch for years, so I could’nt cite them, although they were accessible on the internet". Till you have published such an article please don’t write me any more.
 
Nevertheless, to your information: An English translation of my Kaluza book is in work at Termessos Verlag (Termessos Publishing House): The book will be integrally translated (750 pages) by a professional translator
and not by amateurs. (Three years ago Termessos has declined an offer by Springer Publishing House to translate only a resumee of my Kaluza book by some phisicists and not by an professinal translator.)
 
Perhaps I’ll remember this unpleasant incident and notice it in the preface of the English translation, since „No quotations in science“ is also a very important topic in the history of science and also one of the topics of my research.
 
Sincerely
Daniela Wuensch
