Professor Helmut Satz honoured in Poland

Helmut Satz, emeritus Professor of Theoretical Physics at Bielefeld University, was awarded an honorary doctorate by the University of Wrocław in Poland on 14 November. He has been promoting relations between the two universities for many decades. Starting in 1980, he worked closely together with physicists at the University of Wrocław, gave lectures there, and invited young Polish physicists to come to Bielefeld University.

Satz is one of the pioneers in research on matter at extremely high temperatures and densities; that is, under conditions similar to those in the early universe shortly after the big bang. Today, the Bielefeld research group is a world leader in theoretical work on this field. Such matter has been produced and studied experimentally for more than 20 years at the European Organization for Nuclear Research CERN in Geneva and at the Brookhaven National Laboratory near New York. For many years, Satz worked as a theoretical advisor and helped plan the experiments at both centres.

Helmut Satz was Professor of Theoretical Physics at Bielefeld University from 1971 to 2001. From 1974 to 1981, he was a member of the scientific directorate of the Center for Interdisciplinary Research (ZiF). Professor Satz was a member of the Nuclear Physics European Collaboration Committee (NuPECC) and the European Committee for Future Accelerators (ECFA) responsible for planning European joint ventures on supercomputers.

The Polish University of Wrocław with more than 40,000 students continues the tradition of the previously German Leopoldina Universität Breslau. This was founded in the 18th century and produced a number of major scientists.
