Reviews - What do customers think about Broken Symmetry: Selected Papers of Y. Nambu (World Scientific Series in 20th Century Physics, Vol 13)?
The greatest physicst you've never heard of. Jan 31, 2007
This volume is a collection of papers by one of the greatest theoretical physicsts you've probably never heard of (unless you yourself are a theoretical physicist). His fingerprints are on most of the major theoretical developments of the past half century, from spontaneous symmetry breaking to QCD to string theory. This collection features difficult to find papers, some unpublished, which had a profound impact. In an age so infused with vacuous hype, it is inspirational to review the work of such an original yet self-effacing thinker.
