"Peter Bergmann"

Peter Bergmann was born in Berlin in 1915. He received his doctorate in 1936, under Philipp Frank, at the Deutsche Technische Hochschule in Prague, with a thesis entitled: “Der harmonische Oszillator im sphärischen Raum.” He was Einstein's research assistant until 1941, working on unified field theory. He began working on the direct quantization of gravity in 1949, and soon established a group that specialized in the canonical quantization of gravity. By the time of the Chapel Hill conference he was responsible for one of the few `schools of relativity,' based at Syracuse.
