QM Talks@CBPF: Alfredo M. Ozorio de Almeida – 20.05, 16:30hPosted: May 14, 2015
Alfredo M. Ozorio de Almeida (qig@CBPF) is one of the most well known physicists from Brazil. His list of articles is a long as dense, and his book “Hamiltonian Systems: Chaos and Quantization” holds the status of a classic in the field of dynamical systems.
The first time I met Alfredo was in 2002 at the Max Plack Institue in Dresden. I was there for my first postdoc, while Alfredo was there to receive the prestigious Martin Gutzwiller Fellowship.
