UW Professor Is Co-winner Of Nobel Prize In Physics

(Undated)  --  A University of Washington professor emeritus is one of three scientists who won the Nobel Prize yesterday for work that's said to have revealed the "secrets of exotic matter."  UW Professor David J. Thouless [[ THOW-less ]], Duncan Haldane of Princeton, and Michael Kosterlitz of Brown University were chosen for the honor by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences.  The academy credits this year's laureates for opening the door on an "unknown world where matter can assume strange states."  Thouless received half the prize and the other two professors are sharing the other half.
