David Thouless, a theoretical physicist who won the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2016 for his work on the properties of matter in thin layers, died in Cambridge on April 6, 2019. He was a professor emeritus at the University of Washington from 1980 to 2003 and a leader in the fields of condensed matter physics and topological phases.
The Nobel Prize in Physics 2016 was awarded with one half to David J. Thouless, and the other half to F. Duncan M. Haldane and J. Michael Kosterlitz "for theoretical discoveries of topological phase transitions and topological phases of matter". MLA style: The Nobel Prize in Physics 2016.
David Thouless was one of the leading theoretical condensed matter physicists of his generation. He pointed out (with Kosterlitz) that two-dimensional or quasi-two-dimensional physical systems undergo a completely novel type of phase transition; he developed a highly original approach to the theory of localization of electrons in disordered ...
