Julius Wess

1934 - 2007

Julius Erich Wess, a leading figure of modern theoretical physics, died in August. According to Physics Today, Weiss was best known as "a father of supersymmetry, a concept that revolutionized particle physics." He lectured at ICTP in 1966, within the Elementary Particle Physics Group. Although Wess did not come back to ICTP in later years, he was closely associated with several distinguished scientists who went on to win the ICTP Dirac Medal: Sidney Coleman, Curtis Callan, and, particularly, Bruno Zumino.
