  • Professor Manz publishes article as part preservation, part celebration

    Niklas Manz, associate professor and department chair of physics at The College of Wooster, recently co-authored an article in Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science, a  peer-reviewed publication. The article, “Science, serendipity, coincidence, and the Oregonator at the University of Oregon, 1969–1974” is the feature piece in the journal’s Focus Issue and is dedicated to Richard J.…

  • Science, serendipity, and coincidence

    As part of my science history project, the article “Science, serendipity, coincidence, and the Oregonator at the University of Oregon, 1969–1974” has been published in Chaos: An Interdisciplinary Journal of Nonlinear Science. It’s especially exciting because it’s the Feature article in the Focus Issue, From Chemical Oscillations to Applications of Nonlinear Dynamics: Dedicated to Richard J. Field on the…

  • 50 years later

    After MANY months of not traveling, I scheduled a meeting with Robert (Bob) M. Mazo, Professor emeritus from the University of Oregon, now living outside Philadelphia. In 1971/1972 he helped developing the key model to describe chemical reaction-diffusion systems. But, as he stated, he was “only the catalyst” and only accepted to be recognized in the acknowledgments.…
