Villani was awarded the Fields Medal at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Hyderabad, India, in for his work involving entropy.

The amount of molecular disorder, or randomness, of a system is measured by entropy. Entropy always increases in a system until it is in thermal equilibrium with its environment. However, the rate at which entropy increases was unknown until , when Villani and French mathematician Laurent Desvillettes determined that entropy did not increase at a constant rate.

Rodrigo Martins pioneer research work in the field of amorphous silicon, belonging to the second generation of researchers working in the Dundee group; world pioneer oxides as semiconductors and one of the inventors of the paper electronics, being the authors of the first CMOS device produced on and with paper.

Rodrigo Martins has been distinguished with several prizes and honors, from which we highlight: Wrighton, he completed his habilitation at the University of Stuttgart. He is elected member of the National Academy of Sciences Leopoldina since For more than 30 years now he especially develops and employs advanced computer simulation methods, most notably multiscale approaches, which combine chemistry specific local aspects with more generic physical models and schemes.

Properties of soft matter combine chemistry specific and universal scaling physics aspects in a unique way resulting in the ubiquitous versatility and presence of soft matter. This comes at the price that analytical theoretical work in most cases only can deal with highly idealized model systems, making computer simulations indispensable.

His name is linked to two very efficient simulation models for Monte Carlo simulations Bond Fluctuation Model and molecular dynamics simulations coined Kremer Grest model for polymer simulations. Until now the vast majority of simulation studies investigating generic physical properties of macromolecules employ these two models or variants. The latter model was already used in to demonstrate the microscopic validity of the reptation concept, which is central for our understanding of polymer melts, elastomers and many aspects in biophysics like the problem of chromosome territories.
