Ph.D., Carnegie-Mellon University (1962)

Research Interests
Professor Glasser's research interests are in solid state physics includes, quantum physics of semiconductor nano-structures, high-temperature superconductors, surface physics and density functional theory. In statistical mechanics he is concerned with exact solutions of models for phase transitions. In a more mathematical direction, he studies supersymmetry in quantum mechanics, lattice sums and the asymptotic properties of special functions.
