Roger Balian, physicist with ideas

Roger Balian has had a great influence on the theory of quantum mechanics, as well as the use of information geometry in dynamics, stemming form his clear paper with Alhassid and Reinhardt. See my page for a reference to this. He has also written extensively, as in his nice story, or in his appeal for rationalism.

He has written an influential book, From Microphysics to Macrophysics in two volumes, published by Springer-Verlag.
