Professor Giovanni Gallavotti, physicist at the University La Sapienza in Rome, for decades an affiliated member of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics (Infn) was awarded the Boltzmann Medal, a very important international prize that is assigned every three years by the Iupap (International Union of Pure and Applied Physics).
Awardees must not have already received a Nobel prize. This year, the prestigious distinction was awarded to the German Kurt Binder as well as to Giovanni Gallavotti. The medal is awarded by a jury composed by winners of the prize and by famous researchers coming from dozens of different countries.
The only other Italian to be awarded this medal was in 1992 professor Giorgio Parisi, he too an influential member of the National Institute for Nuclear Physics.
The prize highlights a prolific personality with a vast quantity of interests, a scientist who has offered a profound contribution to the development of statistical mechanics in Italy. Author of more than 200 published works and of various books, he has formed a great number of researchers who have been at his side as students and collaborators.
His research interests range from strictly technical themes (questions such as collective phenomena, turbulence, etcetera) to other, more eclectic ones, such as the studies around the Almagestus, Ptolomy’s astronomical treaty, or the theory of motion from the Hellenics to the present day.
The distinction will be awarded during the Iupap conference that will be held in Genoa between the next 9 and 13 of July.
