**Professor S P Misra **at present Professor of Physics in Institute of
Physics, Bhubaneswar, was born in 1934 at Cuttack. After his Ph.D. in 1960,
he has worked in and taught both Mathematics and Physics. As a researcher,
he has wide interest in Physics including Supersymmetry and Supergravity,
dynamica symmetry breaking, study of vacuum structure in quantum
chromodynamics, temperature dependance in field theory as well as
phenomenological and theoretical aspects of quark model. He is at present
working on application of coherent states in field theory for some dynamical
probems such as nuclear matter at finite temperature and quantum
chromodynamics. He has been a senior associate member at International
Center for Theoretical Physics at Trieste.
