萌化了!女生把猫写进毕业论文致谢,导师给小猫咪写毕业赠言

近日,在苏州大学读大四的博主“温馨”将自己的小猫咪“马赛克”写进了毕业论文致谢里,她的导师也给小猫咪写了毕业赠言。

Recently, a graduate sent her thanks to her cat, Mosaic, in her dissertation acknowledgment, and her tutor wrote a graduation note to the kitten as a gift.

“如果没有他赖在我的电脑旁踱步打盹,可能我的论文早就写完了。但还是感谢他,不合时宜的鼾声引我发笑,毛茸茸圆滚滚的脑袋让我安心。”

Wenxin, a senior student and a blogger at Soochow University, included her kitten, Mosaic, in the acknowledgment of her graduate dissertation, saying "without him pacing around my computer and napping, I would have finished my paper more efficiently. But he calmed my anxiety and reassured me with his incongruous snores and fluffy, round head."

导师曾在最后一节课时允诺毕业前送给同学们一幅字“少年永不为恶龙”,拍毕业照前一天,老师突然私戳“温馨”,告诉她自己还为小猫咪“马赛克”写了一幅临别赠言:“少喵永不为恶虎”。

Wenxin's tutor promised to send the students a picture of calligraphy, saying "the young knight who fights the evil dragon will never become the dragon" to encourage the class to have courage and stay true to their original intention.

The day before taking graduation photos, the tutor messaged Wenxin with parting words for her cat, Mosaic, "the kitty will never turn into a vicious tiger".

其实,这已经不是猫咪第一次出现在论文致谢中了。

1975 年,在物理顶级期刊《物理评论快报》(Physical Review Letters)上发表的一篇文章,严肃地讨论了固态氦 -3 在不同的温度下的物理性质。

这篇由密西根州立大学物理教授赫瑟林顿(Jack H. Hetherington)与威拉德(F.D.C. Willard)共同完成的论文至今在物理学领域也有很高程度的参考价值,被引用了不少次。

物理学界对这名半路杀出的顶级期刊二作威拉德先生自然是充满好奇,直到一位学者来到密西根大学点名要见这位威拉德先生,谜底才被揭晓——二作竟然是只喵星人。

1978年赫瑟林顿参加低温物理会议时,被要求文章上必须签名,他便索性盖了个猫爪印上去。

Willard先生的签名

原本这篇低温物理学文章的作者只有赫瑟林顿一个人,但是他在文章中使用了大量的“我们”(we),当他把文章交给同事看的时候,同事告诉他《物理评论快报》只允许作者多于一个的时候在文章内使用“我们、我们的”(we, our)。

在那个年代,论文还是用打字机打印,要修改内容并不像今天这样可以用电脑一键替换。赫瑟林顿便索性把自己的猫的名字加了上去,全名为Felis Domesticus Chester, sired by Willard,意思是家猫Chester,由Willard所生。

Hetherington wrote that after giving the issue "an evening's thought," he decided the paper was so good that it required rapid publishing. Unwilling to go back and replace the plural voice in the document, he did the next best thing and just added a second author: his Siamese cat, Chester. Of course just listing "Chester" as a co-author probably wouldn't fly, so he invented the name F.D.C. Willard. The "F.D.C." stood for "Felix Domesticus, Chester." Willard had been the name of Chester's father.

这篇论文发表后没过多久,威拉德的真实身份就被曝光了。除了和赫瑟林顿关系较为亲密的同事,第一个知道这位科学家真实身份的是一位来学院寻找作者的访客。赫瑟林顿当时并不在,他说:“大家都笑了,秘密被泄露了。”

After the paper was published, it didn't take long for Willard's true identity to come to light. The first time anyone outside of Hetherington's close colleagues learned of the cat scientist was when a visitor to the college came looking for the authors. Hetherington was away. Hetherington said, "Everyone laughed and soon the cat was out of the bag."

威拉德先生还在1980 年在法文期刊《探索报》 (La Recherche)上单独发表了学术论文,而后这位喵星人还被邀请担任特级访问教授。

《物理评论快报》的主刊美国物理学会(American Physical Society)表示,为感谢威拉德先生对物理学界做出的贡献,以后所有猫在本刊所发的文章都将免费做开源处理。

很多人搞了这么久学术,影响力可能还不如一只猫……

你在论文致谢中都感谢了谁呢?
