About the Author
Dr. Yvan Leblanc is a theoretical physicist born in Arthabaska (now Victoriaville), Quebec, in 1957. He earned his B.Sc. in 1980 from Laval University in Quebec City and moved to Edmonton to study under the supervision of the late Prof. Hiroomi Umezawa, then Killam Memorial Professor of physics at the University of Alberta. Prof. Umezawa was a well known pioneer in quantum field theory and the principal founder of the Thermo-Field Dynamics formalism of field theory at finite temperature. Dr. Leblanc completed his M.Sc. in 1982 and his Ph.D. in 1986. He was awarded the Ralph Steinhauer Award of Distinction from the Alberta Heritage Scholarship Fund. He then moved on to a postdoctoral visiting research position at the Laboratory for Nuclear Sciences (LNS-CTP) at M.I.T. from 1987 to 1989, to a subsequent position of research assistant at the Universite Paris-Sud (Orsay) during the academic year of 1989-1990 with support from the C.N.R.S., and then worked as an associate researcher at the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa from 1990 to 1993, which involved research as well as teaching duties at the graduate and undergraduate levels. At the end of 1993, he moved to the private sector to work on Information Technology projects in Victoriaville, Quebec, remaining affiliated to the U. of Alabama as Adjunct Professor in the physics department up until 1998. In 2002, he created the physics website eFieldTheory.COM where he publishes his most recent articles. He was recently invited to make a presentation at the Twelfth Marcel Grossman Meeting (MG12) at the UNESCO Headquarters in Paris in July of 2009. His contribution entitled "Quantum black holes as Planck scale Gamow states" was presented by Prof. Vladimir Belinski of the University of Rome "La Sapienza" at the Henri Poincaré Institute. Dr. Leblanc has over sixty publications on various topics ranging from quantum field theory and string theory at finite temperature, to soliton physics, quantum black holes, as well as the development of a field theory formalism in the microcanonical ensemble called Statistical Field Dynamics. Applications can be found in the study of various nuclear physics problems such as the multifragmentation transition in heavy ions collisions, as well as in problems involving quantum strings, p-branes or even quantum black holes correlations at finite energy.
