The Times Higher Education World Ranking of Physical Sciences in California Universities

Today, the Times Higher Education came out with their world rankings of Physical Sciences Schools in world universities.  As usual, we cite the world’s top 15, and then just the California Universities.  Three of the top 10 Universities are in California:  Stanford, Cal Tech, and UC Berkeley, with UCLA coming in at number 13.  Repeated numbers are ties, and we don’t otherwise note ties in the rankings.  The third column is the overall performance score.
