Paul R. Stein
,
an American physicist and mathematician, and staff member at
Los Alamos National Laboratory
since 1950, working on problems that range from
mathematical biology
to
nonlinear transformations
and
experimental number theory
^{[1]}
. In the late 1950s, along with
Mary Menzel
and
Stanislaw Ulam
, Paul Stein performed one of the earliest digital simulations of
discrete dynamics
in twodimensions
^{[2]}
. In their work they created a robot mathematician to scan the results of simulations for
chaotic attractors
^{[3]}
.
Paul Stein was member of a group of Hbomb researchers around Stanislaw Ulam,
Mark Wells
and
John Pasta
et al., who wrote the
chessplaying program
^{[4]}
^{[5]}
for the
MANIAC I
in 1956. It played
Los Alamos chess
on a 6×6 board without bishops.
