A Tale of Two Directions

Yi-Cheng Zhang (01 April 2001)

The statistical Mechanics Community used to be a unified fraternality inside the greater physics discipline. We recall that in the golden eighties there were such romantic themes as the then-emergent field: pattern formation, fractals, DLA, SOC, which even some of the most prominent physicists gravitated. No longer. The Community as we know it doesn't exist any more, even though grand meetings like Statphys21 still attract hundreds, but it seems more like an Old-Boys-Club than a place to look up for clues of new directions and inspirations. ...
Let the debate begin

Yi-Cheng Zhang (01 December 2000)

Le Monde published an unusual article ["premier appel"] , ["contre appel"], an appeal of over two hundreds economists of elite French hautes ecoles publicly aired their rebelion against what is called Neo-classical economics, especially the formal math models without pratical relevance. And there is also a pitiful defense of about fifteen economists calling for mercy and reason. I thank Erico Scalas for suggesting to us this piece of news. ...
