In August 2016 at the 23rd International conference on the quantum theory of multiple particles, it was announced about organization of the medal named after Faddeev. According to the head of the RAS Vladimir Fortov, the assignment of a medal named after the scientist when life is a unique event. “Perhaps the only such award was established in honor of max Planck, when he was still alive. And the first winner of this award was albert Einstein”, — he explained.
According to “Scientific Russia”, the work of Faddeev, “scattering Theory for a three-particle system” made its author the founder of a science, and today, research in this area is “cutting edge” of quantum physics.
“I thought it was a good job, but I had to prove that she is important. And I was lucky abroad, I was recognized very quickly, and the house later. Was given the Stalin prize. I consider myself the founder of the modern mathematical physics and this is very proud”, said Faddeev.
The initiators of the new awards were made by several scientific organizations among which the European physical society and the American physical society.
