  • Biography

    Professor John Stack received his Ph.D. in physics from the University of California, Berkeley, in 1965, after receiving a B.S. in physics from the California Institute of Technology in 1959. He joined the Department of Physics at the University of Illinois in 1966. Valued by his Illinois colleagues for the clarity of his thinking, thoroughness and physical insight, Professor Stack is a master of lattice gauge theory and has made important contributions to the understanding of confinement and other non-perturbative phenomena in quantum chromodynamics and high energy theory.
