William Carl "Bill" Schieve


William Carl Schieve was born on April 28, 1929, in Oregon to Rudolph Ray and Emily Auld Schieve. Bill's father was born in Oregon and his mother in Wisconsin. Ray Schieve was a superintendent of public works in Oregon.

Bill graduated from Grant High School in Portland, Oregon in 1947. He ran track and was an honor student. He entered Reed college in 1947 where he majored in physics. He graduated from Reed in 1951 and then entered graduate school at Lehigh University in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania, where he earned a BS and a PhD in 1959. His supervising professor was Peter Havas. The title of his dissertation was, "The Equations of Motion of Point Singularities of the Electromagnetic and Charge-Symmetric Scalar Meson Fields."

On December 27, 1951, Bill married Florence M. Gilleland in Portland, Oregon. Florence, born in California, was the daughter of Eugene B. and Marjorie B. Gilleland. In 1956, Bill and Florence had a daughter, Catherine Florence Schieve. In 1958, their son, Eric, was born while living near Swarthmore College.

From 1960-1966, Bill worked as a principal Investigator at the U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory, Nucleonics Division, in San Francisco, CA. During the period 1964-1965, he was Visiting Scientist at the University of Brussels, Service de Chimie-Physique in Belgium. 

 He then returned to the U.S. Naval Radiological Defense Laboratory in San Francisco and during 1966-1967 he was Head of the Theoretical Group. In 1964, Bill was awarded a silver medal by the lab for his research. In 1967, Bill joined the Department of Physics and Center for Statistical Mechanics and Thermodynamics (later renamed, Center for Complex Quantum Systems) at the University of Texas at Austin, as Associate Professor. During the period April 1969 to September 1972, Bill served as Acting Director of the Center (the Director was Ilya Prigogine). In 1979, he was promoted to Full Professor and he remained at UT until his retirement. 

In 1986, Professor Schieve received an American Society for Engineering (ASEE) Education Summer Award at Navy Operational Support Center (NOSC) for work on the non-linear and stochastic dynamics of the superconducting quantum interference device. In 1987, Bill was the recipient of the Humboldt Prize, “Senior Distinguished U.S. Scientist Award”, and subsequent to that spent the period from January-September 1987 and summer 1988 at the Max Planck Institute for Quantum Optics in Garching, F.R.G. There, he worked on chaos theory in Superconducting Quantum Interference Devices, SQUID, particularly the effects of noise both quantum and classical, resulting in a semi-classical perturbation analysis of the mean field description of the laser.

In 1989, he again received the ASEE award to NOSC where a series of papers were begun on a new non-linear dynamics model of the Hopfield Neural Network. A seminal result was achieved showing how a large network by means of the "slaving" principle could be viewed as effectively a one or two or few simple neuron dynamical system. He later helped obtain the simplest example of chaos in such a system.
He was a Visiting Professor at the University of Ulm in summer 1996, 1997 and 1999 (sponsored by the State of Baden-Württemberg).

Bill had close collaborations with faculty at the University of Brussels, Service de Chimie-Physique, and spent a number of summers there, including 1969, 1970, 1973, and 1974. He was a Visiting Professor at the University of Ulm in summer 1996, 1997 and 1999.

Bill organized and ran numerous conferences and workshops that included topics such as Dissipative Structures in Social and Physical Sciences, Irreversibility in Quantum Mechanics and Quantum Optics, and Modelling Complex Systems (in honor of Robert Herman).

Bill co-authored 164 articles and edited five books in the field of non-equilibrium statistical mechanics and chaos. Titles include: Lectures in Statistical Physics; Self-Organization and Dissipative Structures; Classical Relativistic Many-Body Dynamics; Instabilities, Bifurcations, and Fluctuations in Chemical Systems (with colleague, Linda E. Reichl).

His book with Lawrence P. Horwitz, Quantum Statistical Mechanics (Cambridge Press, 2009) is referenced frequently.  Also, Bill co-authored with his student Matthew A. Trump the book Classical Relativistic Many-Body Dynamics (Kluwer Academic Publishers, 1999).
Bill supervised the PhD dissertations of more than 27 students, a number of whom went on to become leaders in their fields.


Following retirement in 2007, Bill and Florence moved to Fredericksburg, Texas, where they enjoyed a small farm and visitors from around the world.

Bill died September 19, 2020, in Fredericksburg, TX. He is survived by wife: Florence Schieve, two children: son, Eric, and his spouse, Michelle Schieve, and daughter Catherine Schieve and her husband Warren Burt; and four grandchildren: Jessica Morkin, Eugenie Schieve, Erica Alexander, and Jaimie Lycan.

Bill's graduate student, Matthew A. Trump, has written a wonderful memory of Bill. It can be found at the link below:
