Nobel Prize in Physics 2021 for Giorgio Parisi, member of our advisory board


We are honoured to count Giorgio Parisi as one of the valued members of our Advisory Board who has supported this journal from its early beginnings with his input and guidance. Parisi is a broad-ranging physicist, in the manner of Enrico Fermi, whose research encompasses areas such as fundamental particles, condensed matter, statistical physics and disordered materials. In their press release, The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences states "Giorgio Parisi discovered hidden patterns in disordered complex materials. His discoveries are among the most important contributions to the theory of complex systems. They make it possible to understand and describe many different and apparently entirely random materials and phenomena, not only in physics but also in other, very different areas, such as mathematics, biology,  neuroscience and machine learning."

Congratulations Giorgio !

The Nobel Prize in Physics 2021 was awarded "for groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of complex systems" with one half jointly to Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann "for the physical modelling of Earth's climate, quantifying variability and reliably predicting global warming" and the other half to Giorgio Parisi "for the discovery of the interplay of disorder and fluctuations in physical systems from atomic to planetary scales."
