# Geometric phase memories

@article{Berry2010GeometricPM, title={Geometric phase memories}, author={Michael V. Berry}, journal={Nature Physics}, year={2010}, volume={6}, pages={148-150} }

The moment of conception of the geometric phase can be pinpointed precisely, but related ideas had been formulated before, in various guises. Not less varied were the ramifications that became clear once the concept was identified formally.
