Overview

What is he best known for?

The fields of study he is best known for:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Law

Herbert A. Simon focuses on Cognitive psychology, Cognitive science, Artificial intelligence, Rationality and Epistemology. His study in the field of CHREST also crosses realms of Partial concurrent thinking aloud. His work in Cognitive science addresses issues such as Action, which are connected to fields such as Physical symbol system and Adaptive system.

Herbert A. Simon has included themes like Concept learning and Natural language processing in his Artificial intelligence study. His research integrates issues of Bounded rationality and Process in his study of Epistemology. As a part of the same scientific family, Herbert A. Simon mostly works in the field of Bounded rationality, focusing on Ecological rationality and, on occasion, Satisficing.

His most cited work include:

  • The Sciences of the Artificial (11456 citations)
  • A Behavioral Model of Rational Choice (9516 citations)
  • Human Problem Solving. (6825 citations)

What are the main themes of his work throughout his whole career to date?

His primary scientific interests are in Nuclear physics, Atomic physics, Neutron, Artificial intelligence and Cognitive science. Herbert A. Simon interconnects Beam and Spectrometer in the investigation of issues within Nuclear physics. His study in Atomic physics is interdisciplinary in nature, drawing from both Excitation, Isotope and Coulomb.

His research combines Dissociation and Coulomb. As part of his studies on Neutron, Herbert A. Simon often connects relevant areas like Dipole. His research brings together the fields of Excited state and Ground state.

He most often published in these fields:

  • Nuclear physics (18.55%)
  • Atomic physics (17.45%)
  • Neutron (12.24%)

What were the highlights of his more recent work (between 2008-2021)?

  • Nuclear physics (18.55%)
  • Atomic physics (17.45%)
  • Neutron (12.24%)

In recent papers he was focusing on the following fields of study:

His primary areas of study are Nuclear physics, Atomic physics, Neutron, Proton and Isotope. His Nuclear physics study combines topics in areas such as Ion, Spectrometer and Observable. The study incorporates disciplines such as Spectroscopy, Excitation and Coulomb in addition to Atomic physics.

His Spectroscopy research integrates issues from Bound state and Meson. His work deals with themes such as Valence, Symmetry, Momentum and Dipole, which intersect with Neutron. His Proton study combines topics from a wide range of disciplines, such as Elastic scattering, Scattering, Glauber, Beam and Recoil.

Between 2008 and 2021, his most popular works were:

  • Measurement of the dipole polarizability of the unstable neutron-rich nucleus Ni68 (104 citations)
  • The Miniball spectrometer (92 citations)
  • Computer Science as Empirical Inquiry (51 citations)

In his most recent research, the most cited papers focused on:

  • Quantum mechanics
  • Artificial intelligence
  • Law

Herbert A. Simon mainly investigates Nuclear physics, Atomic physics, Neutron, Proton and Ground state. His Nuclear physics study incorporates themes from Excitation and Detector. Particularly relevant to Excited state is his body of work in Atomic physics.

In general Neutron, his work in Island of inversion is often linked to Electric dipole transition linking many areas of study. His work carried out in the field of Proton brings together such families of science as Elastic scattering, Scattering, Glauber and Recoil. His Ground state research is multidisciplinary, incorporating perspectives in Beam, State, Nuclear structure and Angular momentum.
