Congratulations!

On June 3, 2024, our colleague A.M. Kovalenko successfully defended his PhD thesis at the Dissertation Committee of the Lebedev Physics Institute:
"Fluctuation phenomena in anisotropic hydrodynamics", research area 1.3.3: Theoretical Physics.
Congratulations!

On May 27, 2024, our colleague A.S. Ilyin successfully defended his Doctor or Science dissertation at the Dissertation Committee of the Lebedev Physics Institute:
"Stochastic transport in isotropic flows", research area 1.3.3: Theoretical Physics.
Congratulations!

On May 20, 2024, our colleague A.V. Korybut successfully defended his PhD thesis at the Dissertation Committee of the Lebedev Physics Institute:
"Deformed oscillator algebra and spinlocality in higherspin theory", research area 1.3.3: Theoretical Physics.
Congratulations!

Our colleague Igor V. Tyutin was
awarded the 2024 Isaac Pomeranchuk Prize!
The International Committee announces the results of voting for the election of laureates of Isaac Pomeranchuk Prize
in 2024 the Prize was awarded to::
Prof. Andrei Linde (Stanford University) for his outstanding contributions in Cosmology and in particular for the Inflationary Universe Theory he formulated with A. Guth and P. Steinhardt. Later he applied his ideas of cosmic inflation within String Theory and Supergravity
Prof. Igor V. Tyutin (Р.N. Lebedev Physical Institute of the Russian Academy of Sciences) for the discovery and use of the BRST symmetry for the quantization of gauge theories he formulated in parallel to and independently of the work of Carlo Becchi, Alain Rouet, and Raymond Stora, thus providing an essential tool for further developments. The procedure is also of fundamental importance for attempts at constructing string field theories.

Our congratulations to Anatoly E. Shabad on his 85th birthday!
