Bernd Brügmann,
a German mathematician, physicist, experienced C programmer, and professor and chair for gravitational theory at University of Jena [1]. He holds a M.Sc. in mathematics and Ph.D. in physics from Syracuse University in 1987 and 1993 respectively [2], where his physics advisors include Abhay Ashtekar [3]. In his Ph.D. thesis Brügmann elaborated on quantum general relativity in the loop representation and Ashtekar variables. Prompted by his work in physics, he has written a Go playing program in 1993, Gobble, playing 9x9 Go with minimal Go knowledge using a Monte Carlo method called simulated annealing [4].
