Carl Brans elected a Fellow of the American Physical Society

Carl H. Brans, Emeritus Professor of Physics, has been elected to a Fellowship in the American Physical Society for his outstanding contributions to physics. The citation, which appears on his Fellowship Certificate, reads as follows:
"for developing the Brans-Dicke scalar-tensor gravitational theory alternative to Einstein's general relativity".

The APS Fellowship is one of the highest honors the Society bestows on its members and election to Fellowship in the APS is limited to no more than one half of one percent of the membership.

Carl Brans' most recent scientific works include two book chapters:

  1. Carl H. Brans "Exactly What is Mach's Principle?" - invited by Annalen Der Physik as an Expert Opinion
  2. Torsten Asselmeyer-Maluga and Carl H. Brans "Exotically Smooth Black Holes" - invited chapter in "Black Holes" published by Nova Scientific Press.
