2016 Hermann Weyl Prize

The 2016 Hermann Weyl Prize has been awarded to Vasily Pestun of Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (France) for his groundbreaking results in the study of supersymmetric gauge theories, such as his ingenious computation of partition functions that led to the discovery of rich connections between four-dimensional and two-dimensional quantum field theories. The Award Ceremony for the Hermann Weyl Prize will take place during the International Colloquium on Group Theoretical Methods in Physics  which will be held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, June 19-25, 2016.
