About me

Gyula I. SzászI am Gyula I. Szász, a theoretical particle physicist. I have worked at the Johannes Gutenberg University of Mainz, Germany. During my research until the late 1970s I developed a variation principle of open systems for microscopic resonances and for unstable particles.


My story – in short (de).
