Extractions: Contact: Dr. Fuller Bazer, (979) 458-0710, fbazer@cvm.tamu.edu Photos and Graphics Click for larger images Bazer and Roberts independently identified an array of proteins and mechanisms that regulate embryo development, fetal growth and immune competence. The uterine protein, uteroferrin, identified by Bazer first in animals ultimately may be useful in treating diseases such as leukemia and osteoporosis in humans, according to the Wolf Prize jury. The award will be formally presented by Israeli President Moshe Katsav in Jerusalem May 11. The Wolf Prize is given through a foundation established by the late Dr. Ricardo Wolf, a German-born inventor, diplomat and philanthropist. Wolf was Fidel Castro's ambassador to Israel where he died in 1981. The Wolf Prize is given annually in rotation among five areas: agriculture, chemistry, mathematics, medicine and physics. "Both scientists exemplify how devotion to basic research in agriculture can lead to practical outcomes that impact both animal production and human health and well-being," the jury noted.
PhysicsWeb - Wolf Prize Goes To Particle Theorists wolf prize goes to particle theorists 20 January 2004. The 2004 Wolfprize for physics has been awarded to Robert Brout and Francois http://www.physicsweb.org/article/news/8/1/8
Extractions: 20 January 2004 There are four fundamental forces in nature: gravity, electromagnetism, and the strong and weak nuclear forces. Gravity and electromagnetism are both long range forces, whereas the strong and weak interactions only operate inside the nucleus. The Standard Model includes all of these forces except gravity. However, prior to the work of Brout, Englert, Higgs and others, the Standard Model could not explain why some particles have mass and others do not. In particular, it could not account for the fact that photons - the particles that "carry" the electromagnetic force - have no mass, while the analogous particles for the weak interaction do have mass. The particles carrying the weak force must have large masses to explain why it only acts over short distances. In 1964, Brout and Englert proposed that the weak and electromagnetic interactions could be united by "spontaneous symmetry breaking". This phenomenon was well known in condensed matter physics where it had been used to explain how, for instance, tiny unordered regions of a magnetic material could suddenly align themselves in a specific direction.

Extractions: Wolf Prize Five or six Wolf prizes are awarded yearly to outstanding living scientists and artists for achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among peoples. In science, the fields are agriculture, chemistry, mathematics, medicine, physics; and in arts, the prize rotates annually among architecture, music, painting and sculpture. The prize in each area consists of a diploma and a cash award of $100,000. The prize has been awarded since 1978 by the Wolf Foundation, which was established in 1976 by Dr. Ricardo Wolf (1887-1981), inventor, diplomat, and philanthropist, and his wife Francisca Subirana-Wolf (1900-1981), to promote science and art for the benefit of mankind.

Bott Wins Israel's Wolf Foundation Prize In Mathematics Graustein Research Professor of Mathematics, winner of the 2000 Wolf Foundation Prize in mathematics According to the Wolf Foundation, the wolf prize has been awarded annually http://www.news.harvard.edu/gazette/2000/03.09/bott.html
Extractions: Raoul Bott According to the Wolf Foundation prize committee, Bott was selected for "his many fundamental contributions in topology and differential geometry and their application to Lie groups, differential operators and mathematical physics." As a leading figure in the field of differential geometry, Bott’s recent work has focused on the application of geometry to mathematical physics and vice versa, and particularly to the theory of strings. His first major contribution was the application of Morse theory to the topology of Lie groups, which led to the famous "periodicity theorems." He was a major contributor to the development of K-theory and also worked on Yang-Mills theory, moduli spaces of vector bundles, and elliptic genera. "Through his publications, his students, and his personal qualities, he has significantly influenced the mathematics of our times," the prize jury said in a statement announcing the winners. According to the Wolf Foundation, the Wolf Prize has been awarded annually since 1978 to outstanding scientists and artists for "achievements in the interest of mankind and friendly relations among peoples, irrespective of nationality, race, color, religion, sex or political view."
PhysicsWeb - Aharonov And Berry Share Wolf Prize Aharonov and Berry share wolf prize. 5 January 1998. The 1998 wolf prize has been awarded to Yakir Aharonov and Sir Michael Berry for the discoveries that bear their names http://physicsweb.org/article/news/2/1/1
Extractions: 5 January 1998 The 1998 Wolf Prize has been awarded to Yakir Aharonov and Sir Michael Berry for the discoveries that bear their names - the Aharonov- Bohm effect and the Berry phase. Both effects - subtle and unexpected consequences of quantum theory - have subsequently been observed in many different types of experiment. The official citation states that the awards are made "for the discovery of quantum topological and geometrical phases, specifically the Aharonov-Bohm effect, the Berry phase, and their incorporation into many fields of physics". These fields include optics, nuclear physics, fluid physics, chemistry, molecular physics, string theory, gravitational physics, cosmology, solid-state physics, the foundations of quantum mechanics and quantum computing. In 1959 Aharonov and the late David Bohm proposed a thought experiment in which a charged particle is directed towards a tube of magnetic flux. The particle is split quantum mechanically so that one component passes to one side, say the left, of the tube, while the other passes to the right. Although the magnetic field is zero outside the tube, the vector potential associated with the field is not zero. This led Aharonov and Bohm to predict that the two components of the electron would acquire different phases due to their interaction with the vector potential - even though the field itself was zero - and that the difference between these phases could be detected via interference. The effect was soon observed in experiments.

In the formalist view, it is the investigation of axiomatically defined abstract structures using logic and mathematical notation; other views are described in Philosophy of mathematics. Mathematics might be seen as a simple extension of spoken and written languages, with an extremely precisely defined vocabulary and grammar, for the purpose of describing and exploring physical and conceptual relationships.

Beckman Professor of Chemistry and founding director of the Beckman Institute at California Institute of Technology. Gray is being recognized for pioneering work in bioinorganic chemistryspecifically, for contributions to unraveling novel principles of structure and long-range electron-transfer processes in proteins. Electron-transfer reactions in proteins provide the basis for energy production in cells of all living organisms. Yet "until Gray's work, little was known about the chemical factors that govern electron transfer in biological systems," the award panel notes. "It's really great to be recognized for work that was done with students and very close friends," Gray tells C&EN. "We've been collaborating on this work for years, and it has been a lot of fun. The recognition is icing on the cake for work that has been so enjoyable."

Extractions: The Wolf Prize, awarded by the Wolf Foundation in Israel, often goes to mathematicians who are in their sixties or older. That is to say, the Prize honours the achievements of a lifetime. This invaluable book features bibliographies, important papers, and speeches (for example at international congresses) of Wolf Prize winners, such as R Bott, A P Calderón, A N Kolmogorov, M G Krein, P Lax, H Lewy, L Lovász, J Milnor, J Moser, I Piatetski-Shapiro, J P Serre, C L Siegel, Y Sinai, E M Stein, J Tits, A Weil, H Whitney, A Wiles and O Zariski. This is the first time that documents on Wolf Prize winners have been published together. Since the work of the Wolf laureates covers a wide spectrum, much of the mathematics of the twentieth century comes to life in this book.
