B. Andrei Bernevig “Mathematizing may well be a creative activity of man, like language or music” — so said Hermann Weyl, the German physicist whose penchant for mathematical elegance prompted his prediction that a new particle would arise when the fermionic mass in the Dirac equation vanished. Such a particle could carry charge but, unlike all known fermions, would be massless. During the course of his career, Weyl actually fell out of love with his prediction, largely because it implied the…
