Ken Wilson, and the “epsilon coefficients”
I awoke this morning to the sad news of the passing of Kenneth G Wilson, the brilliant theoretical physicist and Nobel Laureate who did much of the work inventing the modern renormalization group approach to statistical mechanics and field theory.
Ken was on my dissertation committee, and became a colleague at Ohio State when I was on the faculty there. A few thoughts of mine on his contributions and genius below the flip.
