Nathan Rosen (1909-1995)

Professor Nathan Rosen died in 1995 at the age of 86. He was a student of Einstein, and the founder of the faculties of physics at the Technion in Haifa and at the University of Beer-Sheva. He made numerous important contributions in relativity (i.e., Bi-metric theory) and in quantum mechanics (i.e., EPR* paper; E stands for Einstein, R stands for Rosen).

Professor Rosen's numerous papers can be located in databases like INSPEC, and earlier papers can be found via "Physics Abstracts."
