  • TEACHING: In 2021 fall I teach phy 552 graduate course (which is also known as Nuclear Physics II). The content of it can be found in the web list of graduate courses. The first meeting will be in room C133 (next door to Math/Phys Library at C floor) at time allocated namely 8am Aug.23. (If classes be canceled Mon.morning, then there will be email with further instructions) Please, anyone interested in this course, with and without enlisting, send me email to edward.shuryak@stonybrook.edu

  • ADMINISTRATION: On December 1st 2020 I retired from being a Director of Center for nuclear theory, which I was since 1993, or 27 years (9 terms for 3 years as DOE PI). Current news about the center see at stonybrook.edu/CNT

  • RESEARCH PAPERS: I wrote 400+ papers which have in total about 33000 citations. Six of them are in 1000+ category, other nine in 500+, Hirsh index h=88. See current citation statistic in Google scholar

  • AWARDS: April 2018, HERMAN FESHBACH Prize in Theoretical Nucclear Physics, by American Physics Society

  • 2005. Alexander von Humboldt Prize , from Humboldt foundation, Germany

  • 2003 Dirac Medal and Lecture, from University of NSW, Sydney, Australia (see list of all recipients in wikipedia)
  • CELEBRATIONS: In October 2018 a conference "Forty years of Quark-Gluon Plasma", selebrating my 70-th birthday, took place in Wuhan, China. see https://indico.cern.ch/event/732540/page/14112-es-symposium (The name of the meeting is related to the fact that the term Quark-Gluon Plasma appeared first in my 1978 paper.)

  • In October 2008 a conference related to my 60 was held at Stony Brook.

  • GAUGE TOPOLOGY CONFERENCES: during summers of 2020 and 2021 due to pandemic conferences were substituted by "Summer seminar series", see talks and lecture recordings at web page of Simons Center for Geometry and Physics, here . The organizers were Massimo D'Elia, Jeff Greensite, Elias Kiritsis, Zohar Komargodsky, Cobi Sonnenschine, Ismail Zahed and myself.

  • previous meetings: ( The Third) ``Gauge topology" workshop I coorganized at ECT* Trento May 28-June 01 2018. the web page is here

    The second, November 2016, was at ECT* Trento, Italy, here

    The first was at Simons Center at Stony Brook here

  • Books: "Nonperturbative Topological Phenomena in QCD and related theories", 2021 Shpringer.

    "Manybody theory in a nutshell", Princeton University Press, 2018 See its content here

    "The QCD vacuum, hadrons and superdense matter" World scientific, 1986 and 2005.

  • BIO sketch is here:

  • 2008 conference called ESQGP was related to my 60 birthday. Here one can find slides of the talks. Parts of some talks as movies are stored separately, e.g. the opening (which of course had no slides), Johanna Stachel, John Negele 1, John Negele 2, Larry Yaffe, Barbara Jacak, George_Sterman, Volodya_Zelevinsky, Joe Kapusta, Rob Pisarski, Victor Flambaum (with great thanks to all participants, and with a sincere apology to low quality of the movies, with some even missing: my debut as a cameraman was mostly a failure)

  • some recallections about other colleagues: on Gerry Brown birthday , on Mitya Diakonov, on Boris Chirikov (in Russian, .rtf)

  • Pictures of some physicists from Meeting in Duck NC, Nov.2000 , S.T.Belyaev (my Ph.D adviser) Fest, in Phyladelphia 1994 , my first professor Yu.B.Rumer et al (1965) ,
