National Medal of Science recipient Sylvester James Gates wrote the first doctoral dissertation at MIT on supersymmetry a key building block for String Theory. In string theory, everything in the universe is made up of one of two types of particles which always occur in pairs connected by supersymmetry. He has developed A Graphical Technology for Supersymmetric Representation Theory called Adinkra.
