Joshua JortnerChemistry1988THE 1988 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY The Chemistry Prize Committee has unanimously selected the following candidate to equally share the 1988 Wolf Prize in Chemistry: for his incisive theoretical studies elucidating energy acquisition and disposal in molecular systems and mechanisms for dynamical selectivity and specificity.
Raphael D. LevineChemistry1988THE 1988 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY The Chemistry Prize Committee has unanimously selected the following candidate to equally share the 1988 Wolf Prize in Chemistry for his incisive theoretical studies elucidating energy acquisition and disposal in molecular systems and mechanisms for dynamical selectivity and specificity.
Ada YonathChemistry2006THE 2006/7 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN CHEMISTRY The Prize Committee for Chemistry has unanimously decided that the 2006/7 Wolf Prize be awarded for ingenious structural discoveries of the ribosomal machinery of peptide-bond formation and the light-driven primary processes in photosynthesis.
Yakir AharonovPhysics1998THE 1998 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN PHYSICS for the discovery of quantum topological and geometrical phases, specifically the Aharonov-Bohm effect, the Berry phase, and their incorporation into many fields of physics.
Dan ShechtmanPhysics1999THE 1999 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN PHYSICS for the experimental discovery of quasi-crystals, non-periodic solids having long-range order, which inspired the exploration of a new fundamental state of matter.
Jacob D. BekensteinPhysics2012For his work on astronomical super-massive objects called “black holes” that showed they can possess a statistical-thermodynamic property called entropy even though the internal dynamics could not be known. This work created an entire field of black hole dynamics which has become a cornerstone in the important theoretical physics areas of quantum gravity and strings.
Ilya Piatetski-ShapiroMathematics1990THE 1990 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN MATHEMATICS The Mathematics Prize committee has unanimously selected the following candidate to equally share the 1990 Wolf Prize in Mathematics for his fundamental contributions in the fields of homogeneous complex domains, discrete groups, representation theory and automorphic forms
Saharon ShelahMathematics2001THE 2001 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN MATHEMATICS The Prize Committee for Mathematics has unanimously decided that the 2001 Prize be awarded for his many fundamental contributions to mathematical logic and set theory, and their applications within other parts of mathematics.
Harry FurstenbergMathematics2006THE 2006/7 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN MATHEMATICS The Prize Committee for Mathematics has unanimously decided that the 2006/7 Wolf Prize will be awarded
Leo SachsMedicine1980THE 1980 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN MEDICINE The Wolf Foundation Prize Committee has unanimously decided that the Wolf Prize in Medicine for 1980 shall be equally shared for his contributions to knowledge of the function and disfunction of the body cells through his studies on the immunological role of the lymphocytes, the development of specific antibodies and the elucidation of mechanisms governing the control and differentiation of normal and cancer cells.
Meir WilchekMedicine1987THE 1987 WOLF FOUNDATION PRIZE IN MEDICINE The 1987 Prize Committee in Medicine has unanimously decided that the Wolf Prize in Medicine be shared jointly for the invention and development of affinity chromatography and its applications to biomedical sciences.
