Freitag, 21. April 2017…”The disciplines that ask the biggest questions and find the deepest explanations are the fundamental sciences. The Breakthrough Prizes honor important, primarily recent, achievements in the categories of Fundamental Physics, Life Sciences and Mathematics. […]
Fundamental Physics
Insights from fundamental physics have overturned our assumptions about the world around us. Last century, general relativity reshaped our picture of space and time, and quantum mechanics replaced the march of cause and effect with a dance of probabilities. Recently scientists have discovered that dark matter and dark energy account for most of the contents of the Universe.[…]The Breakthrough Prize […] is open to all physicists — theoretical, mathematical, experimental — working on the deepest mysteries of the Universe. […]
Life Sciences
In the fifty years between the discovery of the double helix and the decoding of the human genome, we have undergone a revolution in our understanding of life. Since then the rate of discoveries has accelerated, and this rapid progress looks set to continue.[…]The Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences honors transformative advances toward understanding living systems and extending human life. […]
Mathematics
[…]Math is also fundamental to the growth of knowledge, as it is the scaffolding that supports all the sciences. Its relationship to physics is particularly intimate. From imaginary numbers to Hilbert spaces, what once seemed pure abstractions have turned out to underlie real physical processes. In addition, all fields in the life sciences today utilize the power of statistical and computational approaches to research.
The Breakthrough Prize in Mathematics rewards significant discoveries across the many branches of the subject.”…
