Discussion: John von Neumann - A Case Study of Scientific Creativity
Fall 1989 (vol. 11 no. 3)
pp. 165-169

Edward Teller assesses von Neumann's influence on the development of mathematics, especially of his work on representation theory of noncompact groups. He stresses von Neumann's early realization of the significance of computers. Wigner's recollections of John von Neumann's early years emphasize the influence of von Neumann's early education on the development of his scientific creativity.
