Lattice 2004 Talks

Some of the talks given at the Lattice 2004 conference are now available on-line. Particularly interesting is Kenneth Wilson’s historical talk about his roles in the development of the renormalization group and of lattice gauge theory. He also refers to the website of the Dibner Institute.. One interesting thing there is a collection of materials relevant to the history of the renormalization group.

The Dibner Institute is at MIT, but during my high school days I recall visiting the library for the history of science that Bern Dibner had founded which was located close to where I lived, in Norwalk, Connecticut. The collection was moved up to Cambridge after Dibner’s death in 1988.
