About this item

Stanley Mandelstam was one of the most influential and respected particle theorists of the last half of the 20th century. Coming as a young chemical engineer from South Africa to study theoretical physics in England, he quickly became a leading physicist in his field. With his deep understanding of quantum field theory, he pioneered the development of the theory of the analytic S-matrix. His work led to the discovery of dual resonance models, which in turn became superstring theory. He was a leader in these developments, devoting much of his later years to the proof that the theory is perturbatively finite.Stanley Mandelstam was a very modest and friendly man impressing everyone with his sharp intellect as well as his humanity. This volume contains essays written by many of his friends and students including both detailed reports on his scientific achievements as well as personal reminiscences.
