The extraordinary range of cultural interests of renowned physicist David Speiser—including the sciences, art, architecture, music, and history of science—has inspired generations of later scientists to look beyond the boundaries of their own disciplines. In this book, seventeen scholars from various fields pay tribute to his multifaceted career, addressing topics as varied as music theory and the nuclear arms race.
