About the Author

J. J. Sakurai was a noted theorist in particle physics. He received his B.A. from Harvard University in 1955 and his Ph.D. from Cornell University in 1958. He was appointed as an assistant professor at the University of Chicago, where he worked until he became a professor at the University of California, Los Angeles in 1970. Sakurai died in 1982 while he was visiting a professor at CERN in Geneva, Switzerland. Jim Napolitano earned an undergraduate Physics degree at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute in 1977, and a Ph.D. in Physics from Stanford University in 1982. Since that time, he has conducted research in experimental nuclear and particle physics, with an emphasis on studying fundamental interactions and symmetries. He joined the faculty at Rensselaer in 1992 after working as a member of the scientific staff at two different national laboratories. Since 2014 he has been Professor of Physics at Temple University, Philadelphia. He is author and co-author of over 150 scientific papers in refereed journals. Professor Napolitano maintains a keen interest in science education in general, and in particular physics education at both the undergraduate and graduate levels. He has taught both graduate and upper-level undergraduate courses in Quantum Mechanics, as well as an advanced graduate course in Quantum Field Theory.
