Abstract: Giuliano Preparata’s fundamental contibution in High Energy Physics was the pioneering interpretation of the Feynman parton model in the framework of quantum field theory, with the connection of the observed scaling in the structure functions in deep inelastic scattering to the singularities on the light-cone of the product of two currents.
Preparata also wrote relevant papers with Rodolfo Bonifacio about Free Electron Lasers, and with De Martini on related topics.
The construction of a theory of coherent phenomena based on quantum electrodynamics, and its application to a vast class of problems in condensed matter physics was his last work. This part of the Preparata’s scientific activity will be mainly described in the presentation.
