ISING LECTURERS-1997

             

Sigismund Kobe

Technical University Dresden

Proffesor Sigismund Kobe was born 1940 in Zella-Mehlis, Germany. He completed his undergraduate studies in Nuclear Physics and Physics at the Technical University of Dresden in 1965. In 1965 he took up a position as an assistant at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Technical University Dresden completing his Phd thesis in 1971 entitled “Application of Effective Field Methods on Amorphous Ferro- and Antiferromagnetics”. He later received habilitation in 1988. He became a professor in the theory of disorded Solids in 1992 at the Institute of Theoretical Physics, Technical University Dresden where he retired in 2006. His research interests included the study of the theory of amorphous magnetism, complex optimization of systems with competing interactions (Ising systems, neural networks, protein folding) and history of the Lenz-Ising model.

Oleg Derzhko

Institute for Condensed Matter Physics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine

Oleg Derzhko was born in Lviv, Ukraine,1960. He graduated from Lviv Ivan Franko State University in 1982. Later, in 1988 he defended his PhD thesis and obtained habilitated in the year of 2004. During the years between 2003 and 2016 he was the head of the department for the Theory of Model Spin Systems, which in 2016 amalgamated with the department of Quantum Statistics. Since 2016 he has continued to remain the head of this newly created department. He is also currently lecturing at the Lviv Ivan Franko National University and National University Lviv Polytechnic. Derzhko’s main research interests lie in classical and quantum spin systems, properties of ferroelectric materials, spin glass and liquid crystals.

Ihor Satsyuk

Institute for Condensed Matter Physics, National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine

Ihor Stasyuk was born on 23 September 1938 in Berezhany, Ternopil region, Ukraine. He graduated from Department of Physics (1959) and defended his PhD (1963) at the Ivan Franko Lviv State University. He became a Doctor of Sciences in 1986, obtaining Professorship in 1987 and was a Corresponding Member of Nat. Acad. Sci. of Ukraine NASU in 1995. Stasyuk has been the chief scientific researcher at Quantum Statistics Department of Institute for Condensed Matter Physics of NASU, Lviv, Ukraine since 2016. He has received awards from NASU “For Scientific Achievements” (2008), a Doctor Honoris Causa from the Bogolyubov Institute of Theoretical Physics of NASU (2011), and the Davydov Prize of NASU (2014). His scientific interest include the study of mathematical methods in quantum statistics of multilevel systems, many-particle fermion and boson systems with strong correlations, quantum lattice models, Ion (proton) conductors and superionic crystals, phase transitions and field effects in hydrogen bonded ferroelectrics and Jahn-Teller crystals, and Ultra-cold atomic mixtures in optical lattices. These interests have resulted in him authoring and co-authoring over 200 scientific papers and four books.
