THE HIGH ENERGY AND PARTICLE PHYSICS PRIZES
2005 HEINRICH WAHL and the NA31 Collaboration,
To Heinrich Wahl, for his outstanding leadership of challenging experiments on CP Violation, and to the NA 31 Collaboration, which showed for the first time Direct CP Violation in the decays of neutral K mesons.
2003 D.J. GROSS, H.DAVID POLITZER, F. WILCZEK,
For their fundamental contributions to Quantum chromodynamics, the theory of strong interactions. By demonstrating that the theory is asymptotically free, that the couplings become weak at large momentum transfers, they paved the way for showing that the theory is correct.
2001 D. PERKINS,
For his outstanding contributions to Neutrino Physics and for implementing the use of Neutrinos as a tool to elucidate the Quark Structure on the Nucleon.
1999 G. 'T HOOFT,
For pioneering contributions to the renormalization of non-abelian gauge theories including the non-perturbative aspects of these theories.
1997 R. BROUT, F. ENGLERT, R. W. HIGGS,
For formulating for the first time a self-consistent theory of charged massive vector bosons which became the foundation of the electroweak theory of elementary particles.
1995 P. SODING, B. WLIK, G. WOLF, S. L. WU,
For the first evidence for three-jet events in e+e collisions at PETRA.
1993 M. VELTMAN,
For the role of massive Yang-Mills theories for weak interactions.
1991 N. CABIBBO,
For the theory of weak interactions leading to the concept of quark mixing.
1989

G. CHARPAK,
For the development of detectors: multiwire proportional chambers, drift chambers and several other gaseous detectors, and their applications in other fields.
