The New England Complex Systems Institute has awarded its 2002 Herbert Simon Award to physicist Philip Anderson for his contributions to the study of complex systems.
The institute cited Anderson for being the "originator of studies on spin glasses and many works on the collective properties of condensed matter systems." Anderson, the Joseph Henry Professor of Physics Emeritus, joined the Princeton faculty in 1975. He is a co-recipient of the 1977 Nobel Prize in physics for his work on the electronic structure of disordered systems.
