 Professor David Jasnow. I am his first student



After many false starts, crossover scaling in critical phenomena was just being understood in 1971. My thesis was an important link in solidifying the support for the ideas of Jasnow and Fisher in these matters. In fact, I have a postcard from Jasnow in which he states that Fisher told him that it was a "commendable" thesis. I am David Jasnow's first student.
