Honorary Doctorate Degree awarded to a.Prof.Dr. Reinhard Folk
On December 3, 2009, a.Univ.Prof.Dr. Reinhard Folk (Institute of Theoretical Physics) was awarded a doctorate honoris causa by unanimous vote for his work as an academic advisor at the Institute for Condensed Matter Physics, Ukrainian Academy of Sciences in Lviv, Ukraine.
Prof. Folk was awarded an honorary degree for his work in the quantitative explanations of critical phenomena in condensed matter and for initiating projects which have led to intensified cooperation between research institutes in Central and Eastern European. Prof. Folk commented: “Collaboration with researchers from Central and Eastern European countries has only taken place since 1973 during the annual MECO (Middle European Cooperation in Statistical Physics) seminar, but also in the course of the borders opening which facilitated an exchange of researchers and academics between countries. In this way, Dr. I. Mryglod (1992) and Dr. Yu Vysochanski (1992) came to the local Institute of Theoretical Physics by way of state exchange programs.”

Feenberg Medal
This medal (established in 1983) commemorates E. Feenberg's wise stewardship and seminal contributions in many particle physics. It is awarded by the Advisory Committee of the series of Int. Conf. on Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories for firmly established work which has significantly advanced the field. Recipients include D. Pines (1985), W. Kohn (1991), and A.J. Leggett (1999).
Eugene Feenberg (1906-1977) graduated from the Univ. of Texas and completed his Ph.D. 1933 at Harvard. He also studied with A. Sommerfeld, W. Pauli, and E. Fermi. After the war Feenberg became professor at Washington University in St. Louis. 1953 and 1955 he published his 1st and 2nd books ("Quantum Theory of Angular Momentum" and "Shell Theory of the Nucleus"). Then he developed and applied the method of "correlated basis functions" to strongly interacting many-particle systems, leading to his 3rd book ("Theory of Quantum Fluids"). Feenberg also had a pedagogical interest in the theory of special relativity and he occasionally published on the topic. He was a modest man, who cared deeply for his students.

Kümmel Award
This prize (established in 2007) is awarded by the Advisory Committee of the series of Int. Conf. on Recent Progress in Many-Body Theories to young physicists whose published work is a significant contribution to quantum many-body theory.
Hermann Kümmel (1922-) developed the Coupled-Cluster Method that contributed substantially to the understanding of challenging problems in condensed matter physics, atomic and molecular physics, nuclear physics, and subnuclear physics/quantum field theory (see Physics Today, March 1987). H. Kümmel finished his Ph.D. 1953 at the FU Berlin. 1969 he became professor at the Ruhr University Bochum, where he is presently Prof.em.; he was a leader in the field and a mentor for younger generations.

The APS Fellowship
is an honor awarded by the American Physical Society.

The Miller Research Fellowship
provides individuals of outstanding talent with the opportunity to pursue their research in Berkeley.
A.C. Miller (1866-1957), professor of economics, founded the Miller Institute at the University of California, Berkeley.

Macke Prize
Awarded by the Macke Sholarship Foundation this prize honors the best 1-3 diploma theses of the year.
Wilhelm Macke (1920-1994) pioneered partial summation methods in many body physics. Founder of physics at JKU Linz he was a particularily gifted teacher.

Erwin Wenzel Prize
This prize is awarded for excellent diploma and Ph.D. theses of the JKU Linz.
Erwin Wenzel (1921-2005) was governor of Upper Austria.
