He of Chern-Simons class, Simons of RenTec.Chern-Simons Form.Chern-Simons theory.James Harris Simons.QuoteJames Harris (Jim) Simons, Ph.D. is a cryptanalyst, mathematical physicist, academic, investment advisor, billionaire and philanthropist. In 1982, Simons founded Renaissance Technologies Corporation, a private investment firm based in New York with over $4 billion under management; Simons is still at the helm, as president, of what is now one of the world's most successful hedge funds. Simons earned $670 million last year, according to an industry source.Simons' most influential research involved the discovery and application of certain geometric measurements, and resulted in the Chern-Simons form (aka Chern-Simons invariants, or Chern-Simons theory). In 1974, his theory was published in Characteristic Forms and Geometric Invariants, co-authored with the differential geometer Shiing-Shen Chern. The theory has wide use in theoretical physics, particularly string theory.In the meantime, you might like to brush up a little on your topological QFT.uantum_field_theory">Quantum Field Theory.Take care of yourself,TJ .
