Rabin Flips a Coin
Michael Rabin is one of the greatest theoreticians in the world. He is a Turing Award winner, with Dana Scott in 1976, a winner of the Paris Kanellakis Award, a winner of the EMET Prize, and many others. What is so impressive about Rabin’s work is the unique combination of depth and breadth; the unique combination of solving hard open problems and the creation of entire new fields. I can think of few who have done anything close to this.
