Philip Warren Anderson (born 1923), US physicist. Anderson studied at Harvard University, USA, and at the U.S Naval Research Laboratory during World War II. From 1949 he worked at Bell Laboratories, USA, carrying out theoretical research into condensed matter physics. Concepts he described included the Anderson Hamiltonian (a quantum mechanical function), and a form of the BCS theory of superconductivty. He shared the 1977 Nobel Prize in Physics for work on disordered systems in magnetic structures. This work contributed to the development of memory devices in computers. He worked at Cambridge University, England, from 1967 to 1975. He is currently (as of 2007) professor of physics at Princeton University, USA.
