For his leading role in developing computer simulation methods, in particular the Monte Carlo method, into a reliable and quantitative tool of statistical physics and for his many central contributions to statistical physics in this context.


Giovanni Gallavotti

For his fundamental contributions to our precise understanding of equilibrium and non-equilibrium statistical physics, including the development of a constructive renormalization group for phase transitions, dynamical systems, and quantum liquids.
