Physicist Kenneth Wilson dies at 77

I recently found out that one of my favourite scientist, K. Wilson, died last week. You can read about him here.

His work on phase transition and renormalization group was one of beautiful theories in theoretical physics, which inspired me learning physics more and more. The idea of renormalization and its development can be found in Wilson’s nobel lecture: http://www.nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/physics/laureates/1982/wilson-lecture.pdf .
