The Boris Dubrovin Medal

Boris Dubrovin The Boris Dubrovin medal, in memory of Boris Anatolievich Dubrovin, Professor at SISSA from 1993 to 2019, is awarded by SISSA, with the support of the Moscow Mathematical Society, the “Gruppo Nazionale per la Fisica Matematica” (GNFM) and the “Gruppo Nazionale per le Strutture Algebriche, Geometriche e le loro Applicazioni” (GNSAGA), which are part of the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica (INDAM). Boris Dubrovin has made several groundbreaking contributions to mathematical physics, with far-reaching influences in various areas of mathematics. Possibly one of his best known inventions is the denition of Frobenius manifolds (which we ought now to refer to as "Dubrovin-Frobenius manifolds"). Their formalization built a surprising bridge between mathematical physics and differential, algebraic and symplectic geometry. The medal recognizes exceptionally promising young researchers who have already made outstanding contributions to the fields of mathematical physics and geometry. The Dubrovin medal will be awarded every two years starting from 2020.

The statues of the Boris Dubrovin medal can be found here.

To nominate a candidate, please follow the instructions.  

The nomination dead-line is the 30th of April 2020. The award ceremony will take place on July 13th 2020 at SISSA during the conference "Integrable Systems in Geometry and Mathematical Physics, Conference in Memory of Boris Dubrovin", 13-17 July 2020.   

The sponsors of the 2020 Dubrovin medals are the Ernesto Illy Foundation and SISSA Medialab.
