Newly minted APS Fellows!
Two Physics faculty have been named Fellows of the American Physical Society in November 2008. This is an honour conferred on less than one half of one percent of the APS membership.
Prof Eugene Golowich was nominated by the Division of Particles and Fields for "extensive contributions to the development and understanding of the Standard Model, particularly through the calculations elucidating the interplay of the strong and weak interactions and the application of chiral and dispersive methods".
Professor Boris Svistunov was cited for his "pioneering contributions to the theory and practice of Monte Carlo simulations for strongly correlated quantum and classical systems, the invention of the worm algorithm and diagrammatic Monte Carlo techniques, and fundamental theoretical results on superfluid phenomena in quantum gases, liquids, and solids".
Congratulations, Boris and Gene!
