On the wings of physics

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Some of Maurice Jacob's contributions to the European physics community are described, by giving examples of his great achievements. I have come to the conclusion that his success depended on his far-reaching vision, his ability to define the goals and to find realistic solutions for realizing them. He was a trustworthy partner in negotiations due to his outstanding breath of knowledge, his high scientific prestige as well as the fact that he did not brag or seek personal credit for his accomplishments. The European physics community owes him a great deal.
