News Item: Joel Lebowitz receives the 2007 Max Planck Prize



REGENSBURG, GERMANY, MARCH, 2007 - Professor Joel Lebowitz has received the Max Planck Prize, the highest award of the German Physical Society for Theoretical Physics. He was cited

für seine bedeutenden Beiträge zur statistischen Physik der Gleichgewichts- und Nicht-Gleichgewichtssysteme, insbesondere für seine Beiträge zur Theorie der Phasenübergänge, der Dynamik unendlicher Systeme und der stationären Zustände im Nicht-Gleichgewicht. Ferner wird er dafür gewürdigt, dass er an vorderster Front neue Strömungen des Fachs gefördert und mit großer Begeisterung mehrere Generationen von Wissenschaftlern an das Gebiet herangeführt hat..

[for his deep contributions to both Equilibrium and Non-equilibrium Statistical Physics, in particular for his contributions to the theory of phase transformations, the dynamics of infinite systems, and the theory of non-equilibrium stationary states. He is being honored in addition for bringing many to the frontier of knowledge and for his inspiring teaching of generations of scientists in this area.]
