Luis Alvarez - a personal approach to physics

Abstract

One of the major pioneer figures and outstanding personalities of particle physics, Luis Alvarez, died on 1 September. In addition to his numerous particle physics achievements, he became famous for his ventures in archaeology, palaeontology, and astronomy, and for his inventions. As a tribute to this remarkable man, we publish here some extracts from 'Adventures in Nuclear Physics', given as the 1962 University of California Faculty Research Lecture. According to custom, this presentation is a personalized account rather than an impersonal scientific discourse.
