"Max Born"

(1882 - 1970)
Note: In the Lebenslauf in his thesis Born specifically thanks both Hilbert and Runge, see
The Nobel Prize in Physics 1954 was divided equally between Max Born "for his fundamental research in quantum mechanics, especially for his statistical interpretation of the wavefunction" and Walther Bothe "for the coincidence method and his discoveries made therewith".
