Wikipedia, May 20, 2020 (Pascual Jordan; Ernst Pascual Jordan (18 October 1902 - 31 July 1980) was a German theoretical and mathematical physicist who made significant contributions to quantum mechanics and quantum field theory; he contributed much to the mathematical form of matrix mechanics, and developed canonical anticommutation relations for fermions; Jordan devised a type of nonassociative algebras, now named Jordan algebras, in an attempt to create an algebra of observables for quantum mechanics and quantum field theory; Jordan algebras have since been applied in projective geometry, number theory, complex analysis, optimization, and many other fields of pure and applied mathematics, and continue to be used in studying the mathematical and conceptual underpinnings of quantum theory)
