Minimax: Progress and Plans

  • Cyrus Taylor
Part of the NATO ASI Series book series (NSSB, volume 346)


It is a great honor to be a part of this conference in recognition of the achievements of Dr. Rolf Hagedorn. His work on the statistical thermodynamics of strongly interacting systems has certainly had a great influence on me. I first carefully studied his work 10 years ago, when I was a beginning post-doctoral fellow excited by the promises of string theory. More recently, his work undoubtedly influenced the way that I (with J. D. Bjorken and K. L Kowalski) tackled the problem of constructing a model for the formation of disoriented chiral condensates. It has been a delight to finally meet and interact with Dr. Hagedorn.
