Nathan Seiberg on How Math Might Complete the Ultimate Physics Theory

Posted by in categories: habitats, mathematics, quantum physics

Nathan Seiberg, 64, still does a lot of the electrical work and even some of the plumbing around his house in Princeton, New Jersey. It’s an interest he developed as a kid growing up in Israel, where he tinkered with his car and built a radio.

“I was always fascinated by solving problems and understanding how things work,” he said.

Seiberg’s professional career has been about problem solving, too, though nothing as straightforward as fixing radios. He’s a physicist at the Institute for Advanced Study, and over the course of a long and decorated career he has made many contributions to the development of quantum field theory, or QFT.
