NPB editor receives grant from Simons Foundation
We congratulate Hirosi Ooguri, editor of NPB, for being named a Simons investigator as a result of his cutting-edge work on the relationship of supersymmetric gauge theories to string theory and to gravity and his innovations in the use of topological string theory to compute Feynman diagrams in superstring models.
Hirosi Ooguri, Professor of Theoretical Physics and Mathematics at Caltech, was recognized in his award citation as a "mathematical physicist and string theorist of exceptional creativity and breadth."
