Antoine Georges, Gabriel Kotliar and Dieter Vollhardt have been jointly awarded the 2022 Feenberg Memorial Medal for established work that has significantly advanced the field of many-body physics. The award is for the Dynamical Mean Field Theory (DMFT) method, now an important tool in the Many-Body community.
The Eugene Feenberg Memorial Medal was established by the many-body physics at the Third International Conference on Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories in 1983 as a continuing memorial to Eugene Feenberg. The medal commemorates Eugene Feenberg’s wise stewardship of a field that penetrates into all branches of physics, his deep physical insights and great formal achievements, his dedicated service as a teacher and as a mentor, and the exemplary integrity of his personal and professional life. The Feenberg Award serves to preserve the memory of the unique and enduring contributions of Eugene Feenberg to physics.
