Shaw Prize Goes to Russians

Russian academicians Vladimir Arnold and Ludwig Faddeev received a deserved prize Shaw Prize 2008, also known as Asia Nobel Prize. The prize went to outstanding Russian mathematicians for their widespread and influential contributions to Mathematical Physics.
      Vladimir Arnold, together with Andrei Kolmogorov and Jurgen Möser, made fundamental contributions to the study of stability in dynamical systems, exemplified by the motion of the planets round the sun. This work laid the foundation for all subsequent developments right up to the present time.
      Arnold also produced extremely fruitful ideas, relating classical mechanics to questions of topology. This includes the famous "Arnold Conjecture" which has only recently seen important progress.
      Ludwig Faddeev has made many important contributions to quantum physics. Together with Victor Popov he showed the right way to quantize the famous Yang-Mills equations which underlie all contemporary work on sub-atomic physics. This led in particular to the work of 't Hooft and Veltman which was recognized by the Nobel Prize for Physics of 1999.
      Faddeev also developed the quantum version of the beautiful theory of integrable systems in two dimensions which has important applications in solid state physics as well as in recent models of string theory.
      In another application of the scattering theory of differential operators, Faddeev (jointly with Boris Pavlov) discovered a surprising link with number theory and the famous Riemann Hypothesis.
      The Shaw Prize is an international award to honour individuals who are currently active in their respective fields and who have achieved distinguished and significant advances, who have made outstanding contributions in culture and the arts, or who in other domains have achieved excellence.
      The Shaw Prize, established under the auspices of Mr. Run Run Shaw in November 2002, is managed and administered by The Shaw Prize Foundation based in Hong Kong.
