On May 17 in Moscow Russian Academician Spartak Beliayev and Professor Gerard ‘t Hooft from the Netherlands were given the highest award of the Russian Academy of Sciences, the Lomonosov Grand Gold Medal. Traditionally, every year this medal is awarded to one Russian and one foreign scholar for outstanding achievements in sciences and humanities.
Belyaev was chosen for his contribution to the development of plasma physics and the theory of quantum and relativist systems.
Professor ‘t Hooft was awarded for the development of methods for analyzing “gauge theories outside of perturbation theory”.
The Lomonosov Gold Medal, named after Russian scientist and polymath Mikhail Lomonosov, is awarded each year since 1959 for outstanding achievements in the natural sciences and the humanities by the USSR Academy of Sciences and later the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS).
