Pierre-Gilles de Gennes

Pierre-Gilles de Gennes

In a now not so recent post I talked about the polymer reptation model and Pierre-Gilles de Gennes.

Well, last Friday, de Gennes died at the age of 74 and science lost a great man and a polymath. The New York Times has just published an obituary of the man. Please go and read it when you have a chance.
