The Medal of the Erwin Schrödinger Institute for Mathematics and Physics for the year 2021 is awarded to Elliott Lieb, Professor Emeritus at Princeton University.
Professor Lieb is honoured for his deep and groundbreaking mathematical analysis of fundamental problems and models of many-body physics, foremost his works of recent years, which continue to be outstanding and inspiring to a new generation of mathematical physicists. Two highlights in the realm of Coulomb systems are a mathematically rigorous justification of the Local Density Approximation in Density Functional Theory, and a proof of the equivalence in the thermodynamic limit of three different definitions of the minimum energy of a homogeneous electron gas (joint work with M. Lewin and R. Seiringer).

The award ceremony will take place on November 5, 2021, at the Erwin Schrödinger Institute in Vienna. Elliott Lieb will participate online in the event.
Should you like to attend the ceremony in person, please sign up for it by sending an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be happy to receive your registration by October 28, 2021 at the latest.
There will also be the opportunity to follow the ceremony online.
