The EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division is happy to announce the winners of its two 2017 prizes

Posted By Administration, 13 July 2017

The Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division (SNPD) of the European Physical Society (EPS) is happy to announce the winners of the two prizes of the Division:

The 2017 EPS Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Prize is awarded to

  • Peter Grassberger ”for his seminal contributions to nonlinear physics, in particular for the development of the Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm to analyse nonlinear chaotic time series, and the development of highly innovative numerical simulation techniques for complex phenomena such as directed percolation, the dynamics of chain polymers, epidemic spreading, and transient chaos.”
  • Itamar Procaccia ”for his seminal contributions to nonlinear physics, in particular for the development of the Grassberger-Procaccia algorithm to analyse nonlinear chaotic time series, and the development of power- ful theoretical approaches to describe complex phenomena such as multifractals, diffusion-limited aggregation, anisotropic turbulence and drag reduction in turbulent flows.”

The 2017 EPS-SNPD Early Career Prize is awarded to

  • Laura Foini ”for her outstanding research contributions in the field of glassy systems and nonequilibrium dynamics of isolated quantum systems.”
  • Edgar Roldan ”for his outstanding research contributions at the interface of stochastic thermodynamics and biophysics.”

The prize award ceremony will be during the conference of the Statistical and Nonlinear Physics Division in Krakow 3-8 September 2017.

More information can be found on the website of EPS-SNPD.
