Kolthoff Week 11 May - 15 May 2003

Professor JOSEPH KLAFTER
Faculty of Exact Sciences, School of Chemistry, Tel-Aviv University
The Kolthoff prize is awarded to Professor Joseph (Yossi) Klafter for his outstanding research which led to deeper understanding of the underlying mechanisms involved in anomalous diffusion and Levy walks and in dynamics in geometrically restricted media. These studies have far reaching consequences in many fields of chemical physics.

Professor RONNIE KOSLOFF
Department of Physical Chemistry, Hebrew University of Jerusalem
The Kolthoff prize is awarded to Professor Ronnie Kosloff for his fundamental contributions to the development of time-dependent quantum mechanical methods for molecular dynamics, which have made an impact not only on theoreticians but also on experimentalists in the field of chemical physics such as dynamics at surfaces and ultrafast photochemistry. Among the many methods that he developed are the wavepacket representation by the Fourier method; the time-dependent global propagation methods based on the Chebychev polynomial expansion of the evolution operator, which by now are mile stones in computational quantum mechanics. The Kolthoff award is given to Professor Kosloff in recognition for his pioneering work with Professors Rice and Tannor to the development of time-dependent methods for coherent control, optimal control theory and pulse shaping and for his work in quantum thermodynamics.
