1672, this chap, Johan De Witt, was prime minister of Holland, until an angry mob lynched him & his brother & ate some of them. Didn't mess about in those days did they ! Anyhoo, find out more on Wikkie.

I should have said Salvoy, not Salzburg. the Salvoy conferences occur every 3 years and are dedicated to fundamental problems of the day. The one shown is the 1927 conference on electrons and photons. It was largely a philosophical battle between whether physics should follow realistic principles (Einstein) or whatever would fit the observations (the Bohr school).

What's a viva exam? Presenting in person I presume? Or is it a vivasection? (How much difference is there?)
