Summary
Peter E. Hodgson (27 November 1928, London – 8 December 2008) was a British physicist, who also wrote about the philosophy of physics and social issues, and was an active Roman Catholic. Early life Peter E. Hodgson was born on 27 November 1928 in London. He graduated in 1948 with a BSc in physics from Imperial College London. He began experimental research under George Paget Thomson, and was one of the first to identify the K meson and its decay into three pions, giving the most accurate, as of that time, estimate of its mass. In 1951, he was awarded the PhD for this work. In the 1960s, the University of London awarded him the D.Sc. Career Hodgson did nuclear physics under Harrie Massey at University College London, studying the scattering of neutrons by alpha particles. This drew the attention of Rudolf Peierls and Denys Wilkinson, who invited him to Oxford on 1958. There he became the head of the Nuclear Physics Theoretica
