The 2006 Prize
- Mgr. Erik Bartos, Ph.D. (1976) presented the thesis QED calibration processes at high energy colliders defended in September 2005 at the Komensky University in Bratislava
- Mgr. Tomas Brauner, Ph.D. (1979) presented the thesis Spontaneous symmetry breaking in strong and electroweak interactions defended in June 2006 at the Charles University
- Ing. Michal Malinsky, Ph.D. (1976) presented the thesis Quark and lepton masses and mixing in supersymmetric grand unified theories defended in October 2005 at SISSA Trieste
- Dr. Roman Orus (1979) presented the thesis Entanglement, quantum phase transitions and quantum algorithms defended in July 2006 at the University of Barcelona
- Dr. Karel Vyborny (1978) presented the thesis Spin in fractional quantum Hall systems defended in May 2005 at the Hamburg University
At its closing session on November 23, 2006, the jury decided to award the main prize to
- Ing. Michal Malinsky, Ph.D.
for the thesis Quark and lepton masses and mixing in supersymmetric grand unified theories containing results which brought a significant progress to the investigation of the generating mechanism of neutrino masses and received in a short time a significant response.
The jury also decided to distinguish another thesis, the one by
- Mgr. Tomas Brauner, Ph.D.
entitled Spontaneous symmetry breaking in strong and electroweak interactions with a proposal of a theoretically interesting mechanism of a dynamical symmetry breaking in the field of electroweak and strong interactions which could be a contribution to the phenomenology
