Abstract

The Classics article in this issue is a short autobiographical sketch by Kenneth Wilson, the sole winner of the 1982 Nobel Prize in Physics. The piece brings out the bare facts of Wilson’s life in his own words – very few of them, in fact. No one reading it would realize that he was one of the most celebrated among twentieth-century theoretical physicists for changing the perceptions of strongly interacting systems – either in particle physics or in condensed matter. The Nobel citation mentions the cryptic term ‘renormalization group’.
