An article by PQI member Edward Gerjuoy will be included in a book titled "Memories of Julian Schwinger" in a new edition of Schwinger's book Quantum Mechanics - Symbolism of Atomic Measurements (Springer, 2018), published for the centennial of Schwinger's birth. Schwinger, who shared the 1965 Nobel Prize in Physics with Richard Feynman and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga for the invention of quantum electrodynamics, was a classmate of Gerjuoy's at City College of New York in the 1930s. Gerjuoy noted that he had a better grade in classical mechanics than Schwinger did.
