Evgeny Epelbaum wins Faddeev Medal
The Faddeev Medal was inaugurated in 2016 by the Topical Group on Few-Body Systems & Multiparticle Dynamics (GFB) of the American Physical Society and the European Research Committee on Few-Body Problems in Physics (ERCFBP) to recognize distinguished achievement in Few-Body Physics. It is co-sponsored by the journal Few-Body Systems, published by Springer. The medal, named in honor of distinguished theoretical physicist Ludvig Faddeev (1934-2017), is awarded every three years to a scientist or scientists who advanced the field of Few-Body Physics significantly — either through ground-breaking research or due to crucial progress achieved over the course of a career.
An international panel of experts, chaired by Prof. Doerte Blume (U. of Oklahoma, USA), has selected the recipient of the 2021 medal:
Evgeny Epelbaum (Ruhr Universität Bochum, Germany) “For his groundbreaking work on developing high-precision chiral two- and three-nucleon forces that transformed few- and many-body nuclear physics.”
The prize consists of US$2500, a medal, and an invitation to the 23rd International Conference on Few-body Problems in Physics (FB23) which will be held (COVID permitting) in Summer 2022 in Beijing, China. Prof. Epelbaum will receive his medal and give a lecture during a special session at the meeting; its text will be published by the journal Few-Body Systems.
GFB and the ERCFBP wholeheartedly congratulate Prof. Epelbaum. We also want to express our gratitude to Springer and FB23 for the financial support that made this award possible.
The next Faddeev medal will be awarded at the 24th International Few-body Conference. It is anticipated that nominations will open in Summer 2023.
Vitaly Efimov and Rudolf Grimm Win Inaugural Faddeev Medal
The Faddeev medal was inaugurated in 2016 by the Topical Group on Few-Body Systems & Multiparticle Dynamics (GFB) of the American Physical Society and the European Research Committee on Few-Body Problems in Physics (ERCFBP) to recognize distinguished achievement in Few-Body Physics. It is named in honor of our distinguished colleague Ludwig Faddeev. The medal is awarded every three years to a scientist (or scientists) who advanced the field of few-body physics significantly — either through ground-breaking research or due to crucial progress achieved over the course of a career.
An international panel of experts, chaired by G. Orlandini (Trento), has selected the winners of the 2018 award. They are:
The prize consists of US $1,250 for each of the winners, a medal, and an invitation to the 22nd International Conference on Few-body Problems in Physics in Caen, France, next July, to participate in a special session there, devoted to the presentation of the medals. For more details on FB22, please see the conference website.
Faddeev Medal is awarded jointly by GFB and ERCFBP.
