Kerson Huang (Chinese: 黃克孫; pinyin: Huáng Kèsūn; 15 March 1928 – 1 September 2016) was a Chinese-American theoretical physicist.
Huang was born in Nanning, China and grew up in Manila, Philippines. He obtained a BSc (1950) and a PhD (1953) in physics, from theMassachusetts Institute of Technology. He joined the MIT faculty in 1957, after a stint at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. At MIT, he became an authority on statistical physics, and worked on Bose–Einstein condensation and quantum field theory. Since retiring in 1999, he has written on biophysics. He was also a visiting professor at Nanyang Technological University, Singapore.
Huang is best known to Chinese readers as the translator of the Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyám. While a graduate student in physics, he adapted Edward Fitzgerald's famous adaptation into classical Chinese verse. The book (Chinese: 魯拜集) had been out of print for years, but was reprinted in Taiwan in 1989. With his wife Rosemary, he translated I Ching into English. He died on 1 September 2016 at the age of 88.
