Piet Hut

My current program of research explores the possibility of creating a science of mind.

For an overview of my main interests, see Activities. After starting my appointment at IAS in 1985 as Professor of Astrophysics, I became the Head of the Program in Interdisciplinary Studies from 2002 to 2023.  For a flavor, see this IAS newsletter essay; a paper I wrote with two IAS postdocs; and an review of my interdisciplinary program, written by some of my visitors.
