Research areas: atomic, nuclear and particle theoretical physics. Richard Weiner’s work includes the prediction and theory of the isomeric shift on spectral atomic lines and of hot spots in nucleons and nuclei. His work with A.Mann constitutes the first evidence for and theory of superfluidity of hadronic matter. Fowler and Weiner introduced the concept of  coherence in intensity (Bose-Einstein) interferometry and Andreev and Plümer and Weiner predicted particle-antiparticle correlations in Bose-Einstein correlations. His work with Friedlander brought the first evidence for quark-gluon plasma  in particle reactions.  Plümer, Raha and Weiner predicted in 1984 the strongly interacting character of quark-gluon plasma found in 2005 at the Brookhaven RHIC accelerator.
