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. ...
