Leon Heller’s Doctoral Thesis

My father got his PhD from Cornell in 1957.  A family friend recovered his thesis, so I drove down to Los Alamos last weekend and picked it up.  You can see it online here.  He studied quantum mechanics under Freeman Dyson, who later went on to become a leading voice against climate alarmism.

    That is very cool, Tony! It is clear where you got your brains, your love of the outdoors, and your devotion to scientific integrity. The apple didn’t fall far from the tree.

    I did a web search and found this nice tribute to him:

    I see that he passed just seven months ago. I am very sorry for your loss.

    (Note: there’re two copies of this post; I posted the same comment on the other one.)

    Wow, top gun. Having such a father is a great honor, and he lives on through you and your work. I’ll try to read his thesis, but I’m not sure my math is currently up to it. Thanks for letting us know about your father.

    That your Dad studied under Freeman Dyson was the cherry. Thank you for sharing this.
