  •  Comment: Comment by non-AfC reviewer: an article by this title was deleted and salted not that long ago; nothing in the sourcing seems to suggest major changes since then. I solicited input at the math Wikiproject, as well, and at least the initial response also suggested little reason to think the situation has changed. --JBL (talk) 20:12, 12 June 2020 (UTC)

Jacob L. Barnett (1998-05-26) 26 May 1998 (age 23) born in Indiana is an American Physicist, who is well known as a child prodigy .[1]

Life[edit]

He was diagnosed with autism at the age of two. Since no successes were achieved in the kindergarten his teachers thought that he would not be able to speak or write, his parents decided to support him privately.[2][3]He had a interest in physics and astronomy but because of his inability to communicate at times, his parents were late to discover which ideas he was pursuing. He started college courses at age nine. At the age of 13, he co-authored a physics research paper that was published. Psychology professor Joanne Ruthsatz, the child prodigy at Ohio State University investigated, said in an interview that talents like Barnett's occur in about one in ten million people[4] [5]

In 2011, Barnett's mother posted a series of videos on YouTube . Articles with headings such as "Wunderkind puts Einstein in the shade"[6] and "12-Year-Old Genius Expands Einstein's Theory of Relativity, Thinks He Can Prove It Wrong" appeared in the media ..[7]

Barnett was admitted to the Perimeter Institute for Theoretical Physics in Waterloo in 2013 for the one-year master’s degree program Perimeter Scholars International .[8]At 15, he was the youngest student who participated since the program began it.[9] In 2014 he successfully completed the course.[10]Then he took a postgraduate studies at the Perimeter Institute and the University of Waterloo and is preparing his doctorate.[11]

Publications[edit]

In 2011, Barnett co-authored the article Origin of maximal symmetry breaking in even PT-symmetric lattices in Journal Physical Review A with Yogesh N. Joglekar, a physics professor at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis (IUPUI).[12] At age 13 he was the youngest person ever published in the Journal.[5]
