Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

In the introduction to this volume, we discuss some of the highlights of the research career of Chuck Newman. This introduction is divided into two main sections, the first covering Chuck’s work in statistical mechanics and the second his work in percolation theory, continuum scaling limits, and related topics.
