I received my Ph.d in physics at Cornell under Hans Bethe in 1960.
After a year and a half as a fellow at the Princeton Institute for
I taught and did research in particle physics at Columbia and Stanford before coming in 1966 to the University
of California at Santa Cruz. I was a founding member
of its Physics Dept. initiating its program of particle
and theoretical condensed matter physics. I retired from teaching in 1994
I am a Reseach Professor of Physics.
My primary research interests have been in particle physics,
condensed matter physics, astrophysics,
and nonlinear dynamics.
I also have had a long standing interest in the history of
physics and mathematics, particularly during the 17-century,
and I published articles on the works of Hooke, Newton
and Huygens, and book reviews in this field. More recently
I have written about more contemporary scientist like Poincare, Chandrasekhar and Stoner.
I also have been in various activities which have brought
