Prof. J. P. Hsu has extensive expertise and research experience in broad views of the Lorentz and Poincare invariance, gauge symmetry, quantum field theory, generalization of the Lorentz group to transformations of non- inertial frames and physics in non-inertial frames. In collaboration with Dr. L. Hsu, they developed a broad view of the Lorentz and Poincare invariance and the logically simplest formulation of relativity theory and published 2 books, including "A Broader View of Relativity--General Implications of Lorentz and Poincare Invariance." He has published 167 papers and 12 books. Currently, he investigates the electrodynamics and the mechanics in non- inertial frames and its experimental tests, which are funded research. He has also carried out extensive calculations on gravitational implications of a spin-2 field coupled to fermion field with translation gauge symmetry in flat spacetime, including the gravitational quadrupole radiations of pulsars.
