Tamm Theory Department of the Lebedev Institute

    briefly about history

Professor E.L.Feinberg:

Dear friends, dear colleagues, ladies and gentelmen!

Having a questionable advantage and dubious privilege of being the oldest living member of the Theory Department, participating in its work for 69 years. I have been offered by the Organizing Committee to tell you quite briefly something about history of our Department on its origin and on its life during 70 years of its existence.

Let us recall the main features of the period of its formation - the end of 1934, - both, of social life in this country and of the situation in our science, as well as on crucial events in world physics in the same period...

    participation fee

The registration fee is Euro 300 for participants and Euro 150 for accompanying persons. It covers a welcome party, the banquet, coffee-breaks, midday meal during the conference and local transportation from and to the airport.

We expect that the hotel accommodation will vary from Euro 40 to Euro 200 per night for reasonable quality to top quality options, all within short distance from the conference venue.

    social program

The Organizing Committee is planning to arrange a Moscow sightseeing tour, visits to museums, theaters, etc. for an extra charge. A special social program for the accompanying persons will also be organized

Social program details

    public lectures

In conjunction with the International Conference on Theoretical Physics being held in the Lebedev Institute, there will be free public lectures, which should be of interest to a general scientific audience and to many members of the general public.

Public lectures will be held on Sunday, April 17, 2005, at 10.00 am.
They are open to everyone and admission is free.


Juan Maldacena (Inst. for Advanced Study, Princeton)
Black Holes and the Structure of Space-Time

Valery Rubakov (Inst. for Nuclear Research, Moscow)
Dark Matter and Dark Energy in the Universe

Public Lectures are organized and sponsored by the Dmitry Zimin Dynasty Foundation (Russia), one of the first Russian family foundations (, which specializes in support and promotion of fundamental research
