International Association of Mathematical Physics
News Bulletin March 2006
page shows the latest news items about Mathematical Physics.
Please send news and suggestions for forthcoming bulletins to IAMP
- Henri Poincare Prize 2006
- General Assembly
- Henri Poincare Prize will be at the
forthcoming ICMP awarded to Ludvig Faddeev,
Ruelle, and Edward Witten,
with the following citations:
- Ludvig Faddeev has
contributed many deep and important
results to the theory of quantum fields, quantization of
theories, scattering in quantum mechanics and quantum field theory,
and the theory of integrable systems.
- David Ruelle is
honored for his outstanding contributions to
field theory, both classical and quantum statistical mechanics, and
dynamical systems theory.
- Edward Witten's
work on string theory laid down the
this subject. His work has been most influential and inspiring also in
mathematical subdisciplines like geometry and topology.
General Assembly of IAMP will meet during
in Rio. The statutes
require the agenda to be announced four months in advance. Although the
period was set in the pre-electronic age, it is nevertheless desirable
to collect the questions to be discussed in our spring bulletin. We
encourage therefore all the members to communicate their
proposals to any of the IAMP officers.
