2014 Nobel Prize Prediction

As is customary at this time of the year, everyone is anticipating the announcement out of Sweden of this year's Nobel Prize award. Of course, there have been some guessing game on who will receive the prestigious prize. Science Watch has made its own predictions this year. Interestingly enough, all of their candidates are from Material Science/Condensed Matter field. Maybe this is to balance out the fact that last year, the winners were from elementary particle/high energy physics theory.

Y. Aharonov is a senior quantum hero that would also deserve a ticket to Stockholm!

Ohterwise and since the electroweak unification and its spontaneous breaking are nicely understood and established now, may be it is time to reward E. C. G. Sudarshan for the V-A Lagrangian for weak interactions (a work done with the late Marshak)...
