Dr Richard Casten (Richard)


John D'Auria had a distinguished career in nuclear structure and astrophysics, including pioneering work on the production and exploitation of beams of exotic unstable nuclei to expand the horizons of this field into new realms. His work and influence played a major role in promulgating the excitement of research on unstable nuclei and in propelling today's proliferation of major facilities for this research in Canada, the US, Europe, and Asia. I have known John since we were graduate students together at Yale in the mid-1960's. This talk will contain some reminiscences over this half-century plus span of friendship and reflections on his achievements and legacy.
