Below are some photos from the party (thank you Bunny, Sue and Mike!):
Some photographs of me at various times: (1962), (2000), (2036).
After leaving Cuba for political reasons, I entered the United States and started kindergarten. A few years later, with a Ph.D. in physics from an enormous state university, I kicked around in the usual series of postdocs, both here and abroad. My mobility has declined since discovering the Bay Area's charms (e.g., sushi, earthquakes, left turn on red in Berkeley).
Movie: Home video of a reunion of Ilya Prigogine group in Austin, Texas back in 1988. In case you don't recognize me, I'm in the blue baseball cap.
