Kolthoff Week 25 May  29 May 2003
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 timedependent 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 timedependent 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 timedependent methods for coherent control, optimal control theory and pulse shaping and for his work in quantum thermodynamics.
