Howard E. Brandt, Ph.D.: Personal recollections Quantum Inf Process (2016) 15:1019–1024 DOI 10.1007/s11128-016-1269-0 Samuel J. Lomonaco Published online: 7 March 2016 © Springer Science+Business Media New York 2016 Soon after joining the Signal Processing Group of Army Research Laboratory in Adelphi, Maryland (ARL-Adelphi), in 1983, I happened to be walking down one of the many hallways of ARL-Adelphi when somehow I met up with Howard Brandt. After a brief exchange of the usual initial greetings, our conversation turned to a discussion of his research work in relativity. I soon learned that his research was on a generalization of general relativity along the lines of Kaluza-Klein theory. Instead of the usual spacetime metric tensor, he was focusing on a metric tensor that not only involved spacetime, but also included four velocity and Andrei Sakharov’s maximum acceleration hypothesis. This in turn led to a spacetime manifold based on Finslerian Geometry. We decided to continue our conversation in the ARL cafeteria. Over a cup of cof- fee, he queried me about my research interests. So I in turn talked about my research program in algebraic and differential topology and higher-dimensional knot theory. Much to my surprise, he was intensely interested, frequently interrupting my expla- nation with delving questions. Quantum Information Processing Springer Journals
