Honorary Degree:
Dr. Klein, Physics

On November 10 Dr. Abraham Klein, professor emeritus of physics, will be awarded the Doctor of Natural Philosophy degree honoris causa at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universitaet, Frankfurt am Main, in appreciation of his outstanding work in the field of complex nuclear reactions.

Dr. Klein is the co-inventor of the Karman-Klein method, a means of restoring the broken symmetry of mean field approximations for nuclear as well as for other many-body problems. The method later proved to have other notable applications, including yielding a practical approach to Heisenberg Matrix Mechanics and an algebraic approach to semi-classical approximations.
