Biographical Sketch:

G. C. Hegerfeldt studied Physics and Mathematics at the universities of Kiel, Cambridge (UK) and Marburg, where he obtained his diploma doctorate and Habilitation at the institute of G. Ludwig. He has worked on quantum field theory, on causality questions on statistical physics of spectral line broadening, and more recently on quantum optics ("quantum jump approach") and on atom optics (diffraction of "matter waves" and of extended molecules).  He was visiting fellow at Princeton University in the year 1979/80, at the California Institute of Technology in Pasadena in the year 1984/85 and a member of the Institute for Advanced study in Princeton in the year 1989/90.
