NEW DELHI: Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann, and Giorgio Parisi have received the Nobel Prize in Physics 2021 “for groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of complex physical systems.” The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences announced the winners and gave one half jointly to Manabe and Hasselmann and the other half to Parisi.

“The Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences has decided to award the 2021 #NobelPrize in Physics to Syukuro Manabe, Klaus Hasselmann and Giorgio Parisi “for groundbreaking contributions to our understanding of complex physical systems,” the Nobel Prize official page said in a social media post.

“Three Laureates share this year’s Nobel Prize in Physics for their studies of chaotic and apparently random phenomena. Syukuro Manabe and Klaus Hasselmann laid the foundation of our knowledge of the Earth’s climate and how humanity influences it. Giorgio Parisi is rewarded for his revolutionary contributions to the theory of disordered materials and random processes,” an official statement from the Nobel Prize website said.

While Manabe demonstrated how increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere lead to increased temperatures at the surface of the earth, Hasselmann created a model that links together weather and climate, thus answering the question of why climate models can be reliable despite weather being changeable and chaotic, the statement said.

Giorgio Parisi discovered hidden patterns in disordered complex materials and his discoveries are among the most important contributions to the theory of complex systems, the statement further said.

Thors Hans Hansson, chair of the Nobel Committee for Physics said: “The discoveries being recognised this year demonstrate that our knowledge about the climate rests on a solid scientific foundation, based on a rigorous analysis of observations. This year’s Laureates have all contributed to us gaining deeper insight into the properties and evolution of complex physical systems.”

Recently, David Julius and Ardem Patapoutian received the Nobel Prize 2021 in Physiology or Medicine from the Nobel Assembly at Karolinska Institutet in Sweden.

Albert Einstein received the Nobel Prize in physics in the year 1921. Moreover, the Nobel Prize in Chemistry 2021 will be announced tomorrow.
