%%% The Los Alamos National Laboratory has the
%%% Nicholas C. Metropolis Center for Modeling
%%% and Simulation (the Metropolis Center).
%%%
%%% From the obituary at Los Alamos:
%%%
%%% ``He is best known for his contributions
%%% to the Monte Carlo mathematical method,
%%% now widely used to apply the laws of
%%% probability to science, and more
%%% generally to the field of
%%% integro-differential equations that are
%%% important in nearly every branch of the
%%% natural sciences. ...
%%%
%%% Metropolis also is known for carrying
%%% forward John von Neumann's principle of
%%% the stored program to develop one of the
%%% world's first high-speed electronic
%%% digital computers, which he named the
%%% Mathematical and Numerical Integrator and
%%% Computer, or MANIAC. Metropolis often
%%% said he chose an absurd acronym to put an
%%% end to the scientific practice of
%%% attaching acronyms to everything.
%%% Ironically, the acronym not only stuck,
%%% it probably exacerbated the acronym
%%% fad.''
%%%
%%% From the Wolfram Research obituary:
%%%
%%% ``Metropolis enjoyed creating original
%%% names for discoveries. For example, when
%%% Emilio Segr{\'e} asked Metropolis to
%%% suggest names for two new elements
%%% Segr{\'e} and others had discovered,
%%% Metropolis proposed ``technetium'' (from
%%% the Greek technetos, meaning
%%% 'artificial') for element 43, and
%%% ``astatine'' (from the Greek , astatos,
%%% meaning 'unstable' for element 85).
%%% Metropolis also coined the terms ``Monte
%%% Carlo'' and ``MANIAC''.
%%%
%%% From the NA Digest obituary:
%%%
%%% ``He came to Los Alamos in 1943 as a
%%% member of the initial staff of fifty
%%% scientists of the Manhattan Project.
%%% Except for two periods (1946--1948 and
%%% 1957--1965), during which he was
%%% professor of Physics at the University of
%%% Chicago, he spent his entire career at
%%% Los Alamos.''

period dates from June of 1949 to March of 1952, when
the first major problem was run. Originally, the
intention was to reproduce the computer which was then
under development at the Institute for Advanced Study
in Princeton, New Jersey. However, it soon became clear
that the central problem in computer research --- a
suitable storage system --- was a major one, and it
seemed advisable to try a separate approach to that
solution. Eventually this supplementary development was
extended to the other components. Before proceeding
with this report, we would like to express our
gratitude to Professor John von Neumann and his
colleagues at the computer project at the Institute for
Advanced Study for the many fruitful and stimulating
discussions dating from 1944.",

abstract = "Nuclear cascade calculations of the Goldberger type
have been performed using the MANIAC electronic
computer. A three-dimensional relativistic treatment
was used. The target nuclei were Al$^{27}$, Cu$^{64}$,
Ru$^{100}$, Ce$^{140}$, Bi$^{209}$, and U$^{238}$.
Incident protons and neutrons with energies between 82
and 565 Mev have been studied, but meson production was
neglected in this energy range. Cascades initiated by
about 1000 incident particles were followed in each
case. The results have been compared with those of
previous calculations of this type, as well as with
experimental photographic-plate data and counter
measurements reflecting the cascade stage of
high-energy nuclear reactions. The agreement with
experimental data is usually good. Tables and graphs
are presented showing the frequency of occurrence of
various residual nuclei, and data on the residual
nuclear excitation energy after the cascade are over. A
few comparisons with radio-chemical data indicate
over-all agreement with the general spallation pattern
of copper with 540-Mev protons and good agreement with
the Ni$^{64}$ (p,n)Cu$^{64}$ reaction over the energy
range 100 to 400 Mev. However, the calculated results
for the Cu$^{65}$ (p,pn)Cu$^{64}$ reaction are low by
almost a factor of two, although the energy dependence
is approximately correct.",

the number {$ T_n^{(r)} $} of distinct partitions of

partwise addition of $n$-not necessarily
distinct-partitions of $r$ ? The answer is given in the
form of a finite series of binomial coefficients
multiplied by certain integer coefficients which depend
only on $r$. In general the non-vanishing $ c_i^{(r)} $
must be determined by direct calculation; the authors
give them for all $ r < 11 $. Several other
interpretations of {$ T_n^{(r)} $} are given, and some
additional open questions concerning the interpretation
of the results are discussed",

equations of motion are expressed in terms of the

Selection rules are developed for interactions among
the modes, and the number of interaction terms in the
modal equations is reduced by considering the case of a
single dominant mode. The equations are considerably
simplified by judicious approximation, and their
validity checked by direct numerical computation. In
terms of the resulting coupled Mathieu equations it is
possible to investigate stability questions and to
explain recent results of computational experiments.
The bearing on ergodicity and time-correlation is

originators of modern computers; (2) the origins of the
stored-program concept; (3) the distinction between the
MANIAC and the IAS machine. The conclusions reached
are: (1) some of the originators of modern computers
were indeed aware of the work of Babbage, but some were
not; (2) the stored-program concept was an integral
part of the EDVAC design, the result of the work of the
ENIAC design team; (3) the term MANIAC was properly
applied only to the computer designed and built at Los
Alamos Scientific Laboratory, not to the IAS machine.",

the degeneracy of a given energy level of an
{$N$}-dimensional isotropic quantum oscillator that is
perturbed by an isotropic quartic potential energy
term. This problem is solved recursively (in {$N$})
using the concept of a multiplet, which is a finite set
of points in a lattice space {$ L^N $} whose points are
{$N$}-tuples of integers that sum to zero. The basic
definition and properties of multiplets are given and
then used to obtain the solutions to the Diophantine
equations described above. The classification of
multiplets into two types, fundamental and
nonfundamental, is shown to have an important role in
elucidating the structure of multiplets. The concept of
a fundamental multiplet is demonstrated to be an
important characterization of the solutions to a pair
of Diophantine equations that are closely related to
those of the original problem.",

future. Among the contributors are eight Nobel
Laureates. The contents include: Los Alamos in the
1980s; tiny computers obeying quantum mechanical laws;
present, and future of nuclear magnetic resonance;
experimental evidence that an asteroid impact led to
the extinction of many species 65 million years ago;
the lunar laboratory; the future of particle
accelerators: Post WWII and now; models, hypotheses and
approximations; comments on three thermonuclear paths
for the synthesis of helium; and the sad augurs mock
their own passage; experiments on time reversal
symmetry and parity; on the course of our magnetic
fusion energy enterprise; early days in the Lawrence
Laboratory; nuclear charge distribution in fission;
developing larger software systems; reflections on
style in physics; tuning up the TPC; remarks on the
future of particle physics; supernova theory; how well
we meant; history and the hierarchy of structure.",

all fixed points of the $n$ th iterate $ p_\zeta^n(x)
$, for arbitrary $n$, into cycles of $ p \_ z e t a(x)
$. Toward this goal, the inverse graph of $
p_\zeta^n(x) $ is constructed for all $ \zeta $ and its
complete description given in terms of sequences $
\alpha = (\alpha_0, \alpha_1, \alpha_2, \ldots {}) $,
each $ \alpha_i $ a nonnegative integer, and their
negatives, and a total order relation on all such
sequences. It is shown how the properties of these
sequences give a complete description of the evolution
of the graph in the parameter $ \zeta $ with respect to
changes in its shape and in its bifurcation structure.
These results are then used to infer properties of the
decomposition of the set of fixed points of $ p_\zeta^n
$ into cycles of $ p_\zeta $.",

194: ``What are the architectural consequences of this
kind of influence? [of Los Alamos on computer design]
One apparent in Stretch is that machine s noisy mode
facility (Los Alamos interviews). The inspiration of
these was Los Alamos Nicholas Metropolis, who in the
1950s developed what he called significance arithmetic:
the attempt to determine the consequences, for the
reliability of results, of errors caused by the need to
represent numbers by words of finite length. In noisy
mode the effects of truncation were handled differently
from in normal operation so as to allow errors caused
by truncation to be detected.
By definition of ordinary normalized [floating-point]
operations, numbers are frequently extended on the
right by attaching zeros. During addition the $n$-digit
operand that is not preshifted is extended with n
zeros, so as to provide the extra positions to which
the preshifted operand can be added. Any operand or
result that is shifted left to be normalized requires a
corresponding number of zeros to be shifted in at the
right. Both sets of zeros tend to produce numbers
smaller in absolute value than they would have been if
more digits had been carried. In the noisy mode these
numbers are simply extended with 1s instead of zeros
(1s in a binary machine, 9s in a decimal machine). Now
all numbers tend to be too large in absolute value. The
true value, if there had been no significance loss,
should lie between these two extremes. Hence, two runs,
one made without and one made with the noisy mode,
should show differences in result that indicate which
digits may have been affected by significance loss
(Buchholz 1962, p. 102).''",

Laboratory-Directed Research and Development (LDRD)
project at the Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL).
Group theoretical methods are a powerful tool both in
their applications to mathematics and to physics. The
broad goal of this project was to use such methods to
develop the implications of group (symmetry) structures
underlying models of physical systems, as well as to
broaden the understanding of simple models of chaotic
systems. The main thrust was to develop further the
complex mathematics that enters into many-particle
quantum systems with special emphasis on the new
directions in applied mathematics that have emerged and
continue to surface in these studies. In this area,
significant advances in understanding the role of SU(2)
3nj-coefficients in SU(3) theory have been made and in
using combinatoric techniques in the study of
generalized Schur functions, discovered during this
project. In the context of chaos, the study of maps of
the interval and the associated theory of words has led
to significant discoveries in Galois group theory, to
the classification of fixed points, and to the solution
of a problem in the classification of DNA sequences.",

beginning of the use of the Monte Carlo method for
solving problems in the physical sciences. The method
described in this publication subsequently became known
as the Metropolis algorithm, undoubtedly the most
famous and most widely used Monte Carlo algorithm ever
published. As none of the authors made subsequent use
of the algorithm, they became unknown to the large
simulation physics community that grew from this
publication and their roles in its development became
the subject of mystery and legend. At a conference
marking the 50th anniversary of the 1953 publication,
Marshall Rosenbluth gave his recollections of the
algorithm's development. The present paper describes
the algorithm, reconstructs the historical context in
which it was developed, and summarizes Marshall's
recollections.",

abstract = "The central theme will be on the historical setting
and origins of the Monte Carlo Method. The scene was
post-war Los Alamos Scientific Laboratory. There was an
inevitability about the Monte Carlo Event: the ENIAC
had recently enjoyed its meteoric rise (on a classified
Los Alamos problem); Stan Ulam had returned to Los
Alamos; John von Neumann was a frequent visitor.
Techniques, algorithms, and applications developed
rapidly at Los Alamos. Soon, the fascination of the
Method reached wider horizons. The first paper was
submitted for publication in the spring of 1949. In the
summer of 1949, the first open conference was held at
the University of California at Los Angeles. Of some
interest perhaps is an account of Fermi's earlier,
independent application in neutron moderation studies
while at the University of Rome. The quantum leap
expected with the advent of massively parallel
processors will provide stimuli for very ambitious
applications of the Monte Carlo Method in disciplines
ranging from field theories to cosmology, including
more realistic models in the neurosciences. A structure
of multi-instruction sets for parallel processing is
ideally suited for the Monte Carlo approach. One may
even hope for a modest hardening of the soft
sciences.",

abstract = "Legendary historian and philosopher of science George
Dyson vividly re-creates the scenes of focused
experimentation, incredible mathematical insight, and
pure creative genius that gave us computers, digital
television, modern genetics, models of stellar
evolution--in other words, computer code. In the 1940s
and '50s, a group of eccentric geniuses--led by John
von Neumann--gathered at the newly created Institute
for Advanced Study in Princeton, New Jersey. Their
joint project was the realization of the theoretical
universal machine, an idea that had been put forth by
mathematician Alan Turing. This group of brilliant
engineers worked in isolation, almost entirely
independent from industry and the traditional academic
community. But because they relied exclusively on
government funding, the government wanted its share of
the results: the computer that they built also led
directly to the hydrogen bomb. George Dyson has
uncovered a wealth of new material about this project,
and in bringing the story of these men and women and
their ideas to life, he shows how the crucial
advancements that dominated twentieth-century
technology emerged from one computer in one laboratory,
where the digital universe as we know it was born.",

Turing's insistence, a random number generator was
included, so that the computer could learn by trial and
error or perform a search by means of random walk.''",
