Юджин Ви́гнер или Енё Пал Вигнер — американский физик и математик венгерского происхождения, лауреат Нобелевской премии по физике в 1963 году «за вклад в теорию атомного ядра и элементарных частиц, особенно с помощью открытия и приложения фундаментальных принципов симметрии» . Иногда Вигнера называют тихим гением, так как некоторые его современники считали его равным Эйнштейну, но не таким знаменитым. Вигнер знаменит тем, что положил основы теории симметрий в квантовой механике, своими исследованиями атомного ядра, а также некоторыми своими теоремами.

Цитаты Юджин Вигнер

„A mind of von Neumann's inexorable logic had to understand and accept much that most of us do not want to accept and do not even wish to understand.“

— Eugene Paul Wigner
Context: A deep sense of humor and an unusual ability for telling stories and jokes endeared Johnny even to casual acquaintances. He could be blunt when necessary, but was never pompous. A mind of von Neumann's inexorable logic had to understand and accept much that most of us do not want to accept and do not even wish to understand. This fact colored many of von Neumann's moral judgments. "It is just as foolish to complain that people are selfish and treacherous as it is to complain that the magnetic field does not increase unless the electric field has a curl. Both are laws of nature." Only scientific intellectual dishonesty and misappropriation of scientific results could rouse his indignation and ire — but these did — and did almost equally whether he himself, or someone else, was wronged. Biographical memoir: "John von Neumann (1903 - 1957)" in Year book of the American Philosophical Society (1958); later in Symmetries and Reflections : Scientific Essays of Eugene P. Wigner (1967), p. 261

„Where in the Schrödinger equation do you put the joy of being alive?“

As quoted by Freeman Dyson from a private conversation, Infinite in All Directions (1988)

„The miracle of the appropriateness of the language of mathematics for the formulation of the laws of physics is a wonderful gift which we neither understand nor deserve.“

— Eugene Paul Wigner
