Brief Biography of

William Faris


Name: William Faris


  • B. A., University of Washington, 1960
  • Ph. D., Princeton University, 1965

Representative Publications:

  • "Diffusive Motion and Where It Leads" in Diffusion, Quantum Theory, and Radically Elementary Probability edited by William G. Faris (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 2006).
  • "Probability in Quantum Mechanics" (appendix) in The Infamous Boundary: Seven Decades of Controversy in Quantum Physics by David Wick (Boston, MA: Birkhauser, 1995).

Personal: My specialties are probability and mathematical physics. I have published on the mathematics of quantum theory, but I think that the picture of the world that it presents still contains many mysteries.
