John R. Klauder (b. (1932-01-24) January 24, 1932 (age 82) in Reading, Pennsylvania) is an American professor of physics and mathematics and author of over 250 published articles on physics.

He graduated from University of California, Berkeley in 1953 with a Bachelor of Science. He received his Ph.D. in 1959 from Princeton University where he was a student of John Archibald Wheeler.

A former head of the Theoretical Physics and Solid State Spectroscopy Departments of Bell Telephone Laboratories, he has been a visiting professor at Rutgers University, Syracuse University, and the University of Bern. Since 1988 John Klauder has been a Professor of Physics and Mathematics at the University of Florida.

His recent honors include being inducted as a Foreign Member of the Royal Norwegian Academy of Sciences and Letters, the Lars Onsager Professorship and Lars Onsager Medal in 2006 at NTNU (Norway), .

He has also served on the Physics Advisory Panel of the National Science Foundation and been Editor of the Journal of Mathematical Physics, President of the International Association of Mathematical Physics, Associate Secretary-General of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics, and has authored over 250 articles published in international journals.

His latest trip is the 5th Jagna International Workshop on the Stochastic and Quantum Dynamics Processes of Biomolecular Systems held in Jagna, Bohol, Philippines on January 3–5, 2008, where he presented his "Selecta from a life-long obsession with path integrals".

Bibliography[edit]

  • Beyond Conventional Quantization

"When treated conventionally, certain systems yield trivial and unacceptable results. This book describes enhanced procedures, generally involving extended correspondence rules for the association of a classical and a quantum theory, which, when applied to such systems, yield nontrivial and acceptable results. Requiring only a modest prior knowledge of quantum mechanics and quantum field theory, this book will be of interest to graduate students and researchers in theoretical physics, mathematical physics, and mathematics."
