**On the Unreasonable Effectiveness of Physics in Mathematics**

In 1960 Eugene Wigner framed a famous discussion with a lecture
entitled, "On the Unreasonable Effectiveness of Mathematics in the
Natural Sciences." Now approaching half a century later, an uncanny
effectiveness has emerged in the reverse direction. In any case,
the interplay between mathematics and physics remains a rich field
to inspire the intellect.
