Amid an explosion of research into what makes up matter in the 1950s and 1960s, Gell-Mann came up with a criteria for putting particles in groups of eight based on characteristics like electric charge and spin.

The instructors applied a systems-analysis perspective to course design and implementation by following the "crude look at the whole" (CLAW) approach developed by physicist and sustainability scholar Murray Gell-Mann (Gell-Mann 2010).
After the Introduction, which contains important claims about Cao's constructive structural realism and the outline of the main structural steps in the development of QCD, Chapter 2 sets the experimental and theoretical context in which Gell-Mann (a central figure in the history of QCD, around which important parts of Cao's book revolve) proposed the current algebra framework for hadron physics, with the notion of (SU(3)) symmetry at its heart.
Thus, delving into the intricacies of this subject, the linguists, Merritt Ruhlen of Stanford University, California, and Murray Gell-Mann have asserted that the ancestral language followed subject-object-verb principle unlike the modern day language, which follows subject-verb-object, reports New Scientist.
If you are still here, then first there is a little test: Jomini, Sun Tzu, von Moltke, Clausewitz, Napoleon, Frederick the Great, Boyd, Gell-Mann, Chomsky, Godel, Mandelbrot, von Neumann, Lorenz, Schrodinger, and Shannon.
When at Caltech in the 1950s and 1960s, Feynman enjoyed a hyperactive collaboration with future Nobelist Murray Gell-Mann as they studied the "weak interaction" that causes subatomic particles to decay.
In this fascinating, well-written overview, Brennan offers biographical sketches of seven great 20th-century scientists: Albert Einstein, Max Planck, Ernest Rutherford, Niels Bohr, Werner Heisenberg, Richard Feynman, and Murray Gell-Mann. Although their "father" was Isaac Newton, Brennan demonstrates how these scientists reformulated Newtonian mechanics to rework our understanding of the universe on a fundamental level.
While operating under a set of simple rules, patterns emerge from these simple interactions (Gell-Mann, 1994).
