Hermann Weyl

In the past decade, physicists have found that topology provides unique insight into the physics of materials, such as how some insulators can sneakily conduct electricity along a single-atom layer on their surfaces. Some of these topological effects were uncovered in the 1980s, but only...
Hermann Weyl , Professor in the School of Mathematics (1933–51, Emeritus 1951–55), delivered a eulogy for Emmy Noether , one of the first Visitors to the Institute from 1933–35, at Bryn Mawr just two weeks after her passing. In his address, Weyl mourned...
