9780140116243: Who Got Einstein's Office? - Eccentricity and Genius At The Princeton Institute For Advanced Study

It was home to Einstein in decline, the place where Kurt Göedel starved himself in paranoid delusion, and where J. Robert Oppenheimer rode out his political persecution in the Director's mansion. It is the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey; at one time or another, home to fourteen Nobel laureates, most of the great physicists and mathematicians of the modern era, and two of the most exciting developments in twentieth-century science—cellular automata and superstrings.Who Got Einstein's Office? tells for the first time the story of this secretive institution and of its fascinating personalities.

About the Author:

Ed Regis, a frequent contributor to Omni magazine, is College Scholar at Western Maryland College. He is at work on a new book about extremely advanced science and technology.

From Library Journal:

Institutions, their personnel, and the projects of these individual are a fascinating subject. Regis has chosen to examine the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, defty following it and its faculty from germination to the present. He focuses on two of the four Institute schools, Mathematics and Natural Science, with little mention of the less famous schools of Historical Studies and Social Science. The scientific lives he narrates include revealing bits of personal information while concentrating on succinct and very readable explanations of their work and its relation to the larger scientific community. Topics range from transcendental numbers to cellular automata. Highly recommended. Michael D. Cramer, Virgina Polytechnica Inst. & State Univ. Lib., Blacksburg
