Jean-Pierre Vigier earned his Ph.D. in Mathematics from University of Geneva in 1946 and served briefly as a member of the French Atomic Commission together with Frederic Joliot-Curie. In 1948 he was appointed assistant to Louis de Broglie (Nobel Prize in 1929 for discovery of wave nature of particles), a position he held until the latter's retirement in 1962, although their collaboration lasted another 10 years. He is the author of more than 200 scientific papers, and has co-authored and edited a number of books and conference proceedings. He is a member of the editorial board of Physics Letters A, and remains one of the most vocal proponents of the Stochastic Interpretation of Quantum Mechanics.
