Plagiarism in research: Where have ethics gone? sign now

It is highly perturbing to see scientific community being marred with innate covetous aspect of human nature.

Eminent researcher & Universalist Dr. C.K. Raju suggested using functional differential equations (chapter 5b and 6b of his book Time: Towards a Consistent Theory (Kluwer Academic1994). He argued that functional differential equations meant a paradigm shift in physics, and could explain quantum mechanics.

Atiyah echoed exactly the same thing in his Einstein lecture of October 2005, except that he did not acknowledge Raju's already published work.
What Atiyah said at the Kavli Institute of Theoretical Physics on 21 October 2005 is available online at:
http://online.kitp.ucsb.edu/online/strings05/atiyah/.
This should be compared with Raju's book. The Atiyah-Raju case is one of the cases of misconduct investigated by the Society for Scientific Values which acknowledged that Raju has a prima facie case against Atiyah.
(See the website: http://www.scientificvalues.org/cases.html, case no. 2 of
2007 "Atiyah-Raju case").
However, the Society did not go into the following further details
which speak for themselves.

Atiyah was promptly informed of Raju's prior work. But, by means of a "second oversight", Atiyah was again given credit for Raju's ideas in
a prominent article in the Notices of the American Mathematical Society, written in consultation with Atiyah, and published in June 2006 http://www.ams.org/notices/200606/comm-walker.pdf).
Raju's work was belatedly acknowledged in April 2007 in the same journal
http://www.ams.org/notices/200704/commentary-web.pdf)

However, Raju's letter pointing out Atiyah's "second oversight" and a mathematical blunder that Atiyah made was not published by the Notices.
In this letter, Raju pointed out that such blunders are the hallmark of plagiarism. Not giving Raju an opportunity to present his side , is the reason for the petition against celebrity justice.
