Item Description: Berlin, etc.: Springer, 1997., 1997. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. No Jacket. 1st Edition. First Edition. Original laminated boards. Near Fine. Inscribed: 'For Don Glaser/With the compliments of/Benoit Mandelbrot/Oct 97'. With: A.L.S. from Mandelbrot to Glaser. The Nobel Prize in Physics 1960 was awarded to Donald A. Glaser 'for the invention of the bubble chamber'. 'The physicist Donald Glaser and I often went to concerts together, and I followed his career closely. As an experimental high-energy physicist, he invented the bubble chamber, which experts in thermodynamics had declared impossible against the laws of physics because it contradicted a statement in a book by established physicist Enrico Fermi. That statement was revealed to be incorrect, the chamber became a basic tool, and Glaser earned a Nobel for it. Only then did he reveal that he had 'converted' from physics to molecular biology. True to form, he attended the meeting on my seventieth birthday celebrating my versatility and regaled participants with tales of his' (Mandelbrot, The Fractalist: Memoir of a Scientific Maverick, 2014, p. 123).
