Vladimir Kadyshevsky
(A Brief Biographical Sketch)

Vladimir G. Kadyshevsky (born on May 5, 1937) is a well-known theoretical physicist in the elementary particle and quantum field theory.

Professor Kadyshevsky`s characteristic feature as a scientist is his permanent interest in key problems of elementary particle physics. His name is associated with the relativistic formulation of quantum field theory in the quantized space-time which satisfies unitarity and generalized causality conditions. His works in this field were acknowledged by many outstanding physicists.

In the theory of internal symmetry Vladimir G. Kadyshevsky established a number of relations for effective cross sections, masses and magnetic moments of hadrons which were confirmed experimentally. Before the Standard Model of electroweak interactions was developed, Vladimir G. Kadyshevsky had studied lepton-hadron symmetries observed in weak processes.

Since 1964 Vladimir G. Kadyshevsky has published a series of papers devoted to the covariant Hamiltonian formulation of quantum field theory. He has developed an original diagram technique that operates with on-massshell amplitudes contrary to the known Feynman diagrams. This method as applied to the interaction of two relativistic particles allowed one to reduce the number of variables and determine a three-dimensional integral equation for the relativistic scattering amplitude known in literature as Kadyshevsky`s equation.

Since 1970 Vladimir G. Kadyshevsky has been Professor of the Physics Faculty of Moscow State University.

In 1987-1992 Vladimir G. Kadyshevsky was Director of the JINR Laboratory of Theoretical Physics.
From 1992 to 2005 he was Director of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.
Since 1 January, 2006 he is Scientific Leader of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research.
