Past Laureates of the Raymond and Beverly Sackler International Prize in Physics
Professor Komargodski is awarded the prize for his broad and deep insights which have shed remarkable light on many aspects of QFT, including renormalization group flows, dualities and phase structure, conformal field theories, and effective field theories for broken supersymmetry and long strings.
Professor Vieira is awarded the prize for his innovative work bringing the power of integrability to bear on a variety of observables in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills quantum field theory, including operator anomalous dimensions and correlation functions, Wilson loops and scattering amplitudes, as well as for developing a new S-matrix approach to constraining amplitudes in massive quantum field theories.
The coordinators of the 2018 Sackler Prize are: Professor Shimon Yankielowicz and Professor Marek Karliner, School of Physics, Tel Aviv University
