Boltzmann Medal for Prof. Spohn

"For his wide-ranging and highly influential work in non-equilibrium statistical physics", Prof. Herbert Spohn has been chosen for the Boltzmann Medal. He will recieve the award at the StatPhys 27 Meeting from 8 to 12 July 2019 in Buenos Aires. Among other things, exact solutions of stochastic growth models will be honored. The medal is awarded every three years by the Commission for Statistical Physics (C3) of the International Union of Pure and Applied Physics (IUPAP). It is the highest award in the field of statistical physics.
