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.", fjournal = "Physical Review", journal-URL = "http://prola.aps.org/browse/PR", } @Article{Metropolis:1958:MCCb, author = "N.

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.

[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).''", } @Article{Metropolis:1991:SCF, author = "N.

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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, remark = "OSTI ID: 257450", } @InCollection{Metropolis:1996:RR, author = "Nicholas Metropolis", title = "Random Reminiscences", crossref = "Anonymous:1996:BTF", pages = "69--86", year = "1996", bibdate = "Tue Mar 10 15:13:31 2015", bibsource = "http://www.math.utah.edu/pub/bibnet/authors/m/metropolis-nicholas.bib", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, } @Article{Heinzmann:1999:ONM, author = "David Heinzmann", title = "Obituary: Nick Metropolis", journal = j-BULL-INST-MATH-STAT, volume = "28", number = "6", pages = "??--??", day = "23", month = nov # "\slash " # dec, year = "1999", CODEN = "SMBCVA", ISSN = "0146-3942", bibdate = "Tue Mar 20 22:07:51 2007", bibsource = "http://www.math.utah.edu/pub/bibnet/authors/m/metropolis-nicholas.bib", URL = "http://www.imstat.org/bulletin/dec1999/node5.html", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, fjournal = "Bulletin --- Institute of Mathematical Statistics", } @Article{Ravo:1999:NMM, author = "N.

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.

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.", acknowledgement = ack-nhfb, remark-1 = "From a photo caption three plates before page 249: ``\ldots{} at the University of Manchester in 1951.
