how famous is Micheal Dine?
Slightly less famous than it would take for me to have ever heard of him.
Well...I've honestly never heard of him, lol. Who is he????
Apparently he wrote a book: http://scipp.ucsc.edu/~dine/
So is the question related to this?
Is he your professor or something?
I think he is rather known within the string community. I have heard his name a few times, through some of my more "stringy" colleagues and because of a course in supersymmetry.
Separate names with a comma.
