Philip W. Anderson: Superconductivity from a Broader Perspective

  • Kristian Fossheim

Abstract

Philip Warren Anderson shared the Nobel Prize in Physics for 1977 with Sir Nevill Francis Mott and John Hasbrouck van Vleck “for their fundamental theoretical investigations of the electronic structure of magnetic and disordered systems.” Anderson’s influence on condensed matter physics has been of profound importance. He is often characterized as one of the most influential minds in all of theoretical physics in the second half of the 20th century.
