A one-day memorial symposium to honor the memory of Lev P. Gor'kov focusing on recent developments in many-body physics. To be held in Tallahassee, FL, on January 13, 2018.

  • Overview

    Lev Petrovich Gor'kov

    Lev Petrovich Gor'kov


    Date: Jan. 13, 2018

    Place: National High Magnetic Field Laboratory, Tallahassee, Florida

    Lev Petrovich Gor'kov was, without doubt, one of the great scientists of the 20th century. His many seminal contributions to many-body theory, made over the course of his long and extremely productive career, sit at the heart of much of modern condensed matter physics.

    Lev was internationally known for his pioneering work in the field of superconductivity and was the recipient of many prestigious awards including the Lenin Prize, Russia's highest award for scientific achievement in 1966, the Landau Award in 1988, and the Bardeen Award in 1991. Lev was a member of the National Academy of Sciences and fellow of the American Physical Society. He received the Humboldt Research Award in 1999 and was given the Eugene Feenberg Medal in 2004 for advancing the field of many-body physics. In 2015 Lev was presented the Ugo Fano Prize by the Rome International Center for Materials Science.

    Born in Russia in 1929, Lev left Moscow for the United States in 1992 and was a founding member of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.

    Lev passed away in Tallahassee in December 2016 at the age of 87. This one-day symposium, held in Lev's memory, will focus on recent developments at the frontiers of the field of study he helped to create: many-body physics.

    This symposium is being held immediately after the MagLab's Theory Winter School.

  • Venue

    All lectures, as well as lunch and dinner will be taking place at the MagLab headquarters in Tallahassee, Florida.

    The only facility of its kind in the United States, the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory (less formally known as the MagLab) is the largest and highest-powered magnet laboratory in the world, headquartered in a sprawling 370,000-square-foot complex near Florida State University in Tallahassee. The lab also includes sites at the Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico and the University of Florida in Gainesville. Together these three institutions operate the lab, collaborating in a unique, interdisciplinary way to advance basic science, engineering and technology in the 21st century.

    Magnet Lab
    National MaLab

    Established by the National Science Foundation in 1990, the lab is a national resource open to both curious visitors and world-renowned scientists. Centralizing the country's greatest magnet-related tools, resources and expertise is not only efficient and cost-effective, but also encourages fruitful, collaborative research at the highest level. Every year, more than 900 visiting scientists and engineers from across the world conduct experiments using our state-of-the-art equipment. Our magnets are far larger, far more powerful and far more complex than the everyday magnets most people are familiar with. Many were designed, developed and built by our magnet engineering and design team, widely recognized as the finest in the world.
