Ginzburg November 9, 2009

Posted by apetrov in Near Physics, Particle Physics, Physics, Science.

One of the most famous Russian physicists, 2003 Nobel Prize winner Vitaly L. Ginzburg died yesterday in Moscow. He was 94. He received his Nobel Prize “for pioneering contributions to the theory of superconductors and superfluids” (e.g. Landau-Ginzburg theory is taught in any statistical mechanics class). He was a truly universal physicist — with over 400 works in physics, radio-physics and astrophysics. He will be greatly missed.
