This memorial quantity at the paintings of Wolfgang Kummer brings jointly articles dedicated to the historical past of excessive strength physics with particular insurance at the clinical techniques and medical associations, specifically CERN - and the underlying physics concerned. masking fresh advances and advancements in addition to giving a reminiscent assessment in swiftly evolving fields of excessive energy/particle physics, and gravitational physics, the commemorative quantity includes greater than 20 unique invited paper contributions - with a view to seem for the 1st time in print - from eminent and popular physicists who interacted and collaborated with Wolfgang Kummer, together with Physics Nobel Laureate Jack Steinberger. Wolfgang Kummer was once president of the CERN council from 1985 to 1987, between his quite a few eminent educational and administrative positions which he held in the course of his illustrious occupation. This quantity additionally goals to illustrate and spotlight Wolfgang Kummer's major contribution to the foundational paintings in gauge box idea, particle physics, and quantum gravity, and the large influence resulting in state of the art findings and advances at LHC.
