TitleSherrington, David: certificate of election to the Royal Society
DescriptionCitation typed
CitationDavid Sherrington has made many innovative and influential contributions to the theory of condensed matter in several different areas. Particularly notable has been his extensive work on complex cooperative behaviour arising from the combination of quenched disorder and frustration in the controlling rules: in spin glasses, hard optimisation, and neural networks. His work sparked a conceptual and technical revolution in statistical mechanics and he has played a major role in its development and application . He has also made important advances in several other areas, including magnetism, semiconductors, and many aspects of formal and applied many body theory.
