Yesterday afternoon at the quantum foundations meeting in Erice (supported by COST) we celebrated the 80th birthday (somewhat in advance) of GianCarlo Ghirardi who famously worked on collapse models, in an attempt to deal with the quantum measurement problem. He’s the “G” in GRW collapse theory. (Ghirardi is pictured here — a bit fuzzily —being presented with a gift by Catalina Oana Curceanu and Detleft Duerr.)
