Extractions: At the age of 10, Stanislaw Ulam entered the gymnasium in Lvov, and about this timehe became interested in astronomy and physics. To understand Einstein's special theory of relativity, he began to study mathematics from books, going well beyond the school level mathematics he was learning. He learned calculus at 16, and taught himself set theory from Sierpinski's book. He entered the Polytechnic Institute in Lvov. There he took a course from Kuratowski. Ulam obtained his Ph.D. from the Polytechnic Institute in Lvov in 1933, where he studied under Banach. In 1935, Ulam received an invitation from von Neumann to visit the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton for a few months. At the Institute, he met Birkhoff who invited him to Harvard University. Every year he commuted between Poland and the United States, and he became a lecturer at Harvard in 1940, and then an assistant professor at the University of Wisconsin. In 1943 Ulam became an American citizen. Also that year, von Neumann asked him to work on the hydrogen bomb at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico, where he solved the problem of how to initiate fusion. One morning in 1946, a newly appointed professor at the University of Southern California, awoke to find himself unable to speak. A few hours later, he underwent a dangerous surgical operation. In time, however, some changes in his personality became obvious to those who knew him. His ideas, which he spouted out at odd intervals, were fascinating beyond anything I have witenssed before or since. However, he seemed to studiously avoid going into details.

Extractions: Following his studies, Stan travelled through Europe, and later crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the United States. In the U.S., he was a visting scholar at a number of institutions, including Princeton (where he met John von Neumann), Harvard, and the University Colorado. By the early 1940's, Stan had found a teaching position at the University of Wisconsin in Madison. The outbreak of the second World War was to lead to a monumental change in Stan's life. Stan wanted to do something for the war effort in the U.S., and, through the help of von Neumann, was offered an opportunity somewhere west of the Mississippi. As exerpted from Stan's Adventures Johnny said that there was some very exciting work going on in which I could possibly be of good use; he still could not tell me where it was taking place, but he traveled rather often from Princeton to that location. I don't know why by pure chance or one of these incredible coincidences or prophetic insights? but I answered jokingly, "Well, as you know, Johnny, I don't know much about engineering or experimental physics, in fact I don't even know how the toilet flusher works, except that it is a sort of autocatalytic effect." At this I saw him wince and his expression become quizzical. Only later did I discover that indeed the word autocatalytic was used in connection with schemes for the construction of an atomic bomb.

Extractions: Adam Ulam Adam Ulam, the Gurney Professor of History and Political Science Emeritus , died on March 28 after a lengthy illness. He was 77. Ulam was affiliated with Harvard's Russian Research Center (renamed the Davis Center for Russian Studies in 1997) for more than 50 years. He twice served as the Center's director, from 1973 to 1976 and from 1980 to 1992. During his tenure, the Center became one of the leading institutions in the world for the study of the Soviet Union. Marshall Goldman, associate director of the Davis Center, described Ulam as "a Renaissance man who knew and had heard of and had thought about everything. If you wanted to know something, rather than go to a reference librarian, you would go to Adam." Emeritus , said: "Adam Ulam was an old-fashioned professor in the best sense of the word. The life of the mind was his primary occupation. Research and students were his main concerns. The Russian Research Center was his home – quite literally – for many decades. He really was one of the giants in a rich generation of refugee scholars, most of whom – alas – are gone." Edward Keenan, the Andrew W. Mellon Professor of History and Director of the Dumbarton Oaks Research Library and Collection, described Ulam as "a gentle, playful Galician cosmopolite, a prodigious reader and

Extractions: Stanslaw Ulam played a major role in the development of the hydrogen bomb at Los Alamos. Born in Lemberg, Pol., Austrian Empire [now Lviv, Ukraine], Ulam received a doctoral degree (1933) at the Polytechnic Institute in Lvov (now Lviv). At the invitation of John von Neumann, he worked at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, N.J., in 1936, and lectured at Harvard (1939-40) and the University of Wisconsin, Madison (1941 to 1943). Los Alamos In 1943 he became an American citizen and was recruited to work at Los Alamos on the development of the atomic bomb. He remained at Los Alamos until 1965 and taught at various universities thereafter. Ulam had a number of specialties, including set theory, mathematical logic, functions of real variables, thermonuclear reactions, topology, and the Monte-Carlo theory. Working with physicist Edward Teller, Ulam solved one major problem encountered in work on the fusion bomb by suggesting that compression was essential to explosion and that shock waves from a fission bomb could produce the compression needed. He further suggested that careful design could focus mechanical shock waves in such a way that they would promote rapid burning of the fusion fuel. Teller suggested that radiation implosion, rather than mechanical shock, be used to compress the thermonuclear fuel. This two-stage radiation implosion design, which became known as the Teller-Ulam configuration, led to the creation of modern thermonuclear weapons.
