PTP Highlights

Progress of Theoretical Physics (PTP) has published many important articles since its inception in 1946. The following twelve papers, including articles written by Nobel Laureates, are among the most heavily-cited in history of PTP , and have been greatly influential in the development of physics during the last half century. These papers were selected from the archives of PTP by the Editorial Committee as representing the best works from a variety of fields.

More PTP Highlights
have been added to commemorate seventy years since the inception of PTP in 2016.
