Edward Teller (Hungarian: Teller Ede; January 15,

1908 – September 9, 2003) was a Hungarian-American theoretical physicist who

is known colloquially as "the father of the hydrogen bomb" (see the Teller–Ulam design),

although he did not care for the title, and was only part of a team who

developed the technology.Throughout his life, Teller was known both for his

scientific ability and for his difficult interpersonal relations and volatile

personality. Teller was born in Hungary in 1908, and emigrated to the United

States in the 1930s, one of the many so-called "Martians", a

group of prominent Hungarian scientist émigrés. He made numerous physics, spectroscopy (in particular physics. His

extension of Enrico Fermi's theory

of beta decay, in the form of Gamow–Teller transitions,

provided an important stepping stone in its application, while the Jahn–Teller

effect and the Brunauer–Emmett–Teller (BET) theory have

retained their original formulation and are still mainstays in physics made contributions to Thomas–Fermi theory, the

precursor of density functional theory,

a standard modern tool in the quantum mechanical treatment of complex molecules. In

1953, along with Nicholas Metropolis, Ariann Rosenbluth, Marshall Rosenbluth, and

his wife Augusta Teller, Teller

co-authored a paper that is a standard starting point for the applications of

the Monte Carlo method to statistical mechanics. Teller was an early

member of the Manhattan Project, charged

with developing the first atomic bomb, and proposed the solid pit implosion

design which was successful. He made a serious push to develop the first fusion-based weapons as well, but these were deferred until

after World War II. He did not

sign the Szilard petition, which

sought to have the bombs detonated as a demonstration, but not on a city, but

later agreed that Szilard was right,

and the bombs should not have been dropped on a defenceless civilian

population. He was a co-founder of Lawrence

Livermore National Laboratory, and was both its director and

associate director for many years. After his controversial negative testimony

in the Oppenheimer security

hearing convened against his former Los Alamos Laboratory superior, J. Robert Oppenheimer,

Teller was ostracized by much of the scientific community. He continued,

however, to find support from the U.S. government and military research

establishment, particularly for his advocacy for nuclear energy development, a strong nuclear arsenal, and

a vigorous nuclear testing program.

In his later years, Teller became especially known for his advocacy of

controversial technological solutions to both military and civilian problems,

including a plan to excavate an artificial harbor in what was called Project Chariot, and Ronald Reagan's Strategic Defense

Initiative. Teller's contributions to science garnered him numerous

awards, including the Enrico Fermi Award and Albert Einstein Award. He

died on September 9, 2003, in Stanford, California, at

95.
