Bruno Zumino (April 28, 1923 − June 21, 2014) was an Italian theoretical physicist and emeritus faculty at the University of California, Berkeley. He obtained his DSc degree from the University of Rome in 1945.[1]

He was renowned for his rigorous proof of the CPT theorem with Gerhart Lüders;[2] his pioneering systematization of effective chiral Lagrangians;[3] the discoveries, with Julius Wess, of the Wess–Zumino model,[4] widely viewed as the first four-dimensional supersymmetric quantum field theory outside the Soviet Union, and initiator of the field of supersymmetric radiative restrictions; and for his deciphering of structured flavor-chiral anomalies, codified in the Wess–Zumino–Witten model of conformal field theory.[5]
