first of all cause there are some dumb questions out here :

the name

1.

the name of the ship class aka the lead ship (The lead ship or class leader is the first of a series or class of ships all constructed according to the same general design. The term is applicable to military ships and larger civilian craft. ) in this case Montgomery the name is normal navy ship name for USN the name is currently given to USS Montgomery LCS-8 Independence-class littoral combat ship she is second ship to be named for Montgomery, the capital of the state of Alabama

Dyson also did work in a variety of topics in mathematics, such as topology, analysis, number theory and random matrices. There is an interesting story involving random matrices. In 1973 the number theorist

__Hugh Montgomery__ was visiting the Institute for Advanced Study and had just made his pair correlation conjecture concerning the distribution of the zeros of the Riemann zeta function. He showed his formula to the mathematician Atle Selberg who said it looked like something in mathematical physics and he should show it to Dyson, which he did. Dyson recognized the formula as the pair correlation function of the Gaussian unitary ensemble, which has been extensively studied by physicists. This suggested that there might be an unexpected connection between the distribution of primes 2,3,5,7,11, ... and the energy levels in the nuclei of heavy elements such as uranium.
