Herbert Kroemer

Whenever I came to him [Fritz Sauter] with a pure physics idea, he would invariably say, with slight sarcasm: “But Mr. Kroemer, you ought to be able to formulate this mathematically!” If I came to him with a math formulation, I would get, in a similar tone: “But Mr. Kroemer, that is just math, what is the physics?” After a few encounters of this kind, you got the idea: You had to be able to go back and forth with ease.
