Stanislav Smirnov is being awarded the 2010 Fields medal for the proof of conformal invariance of percolation and the planar Ising model in statistical physics.|
It was predicted in the 1990’s, and used in many studies, that the scaling limit of various two dimensional models in statistical physics has an unexpected symmetry, namely it is conformally invariant. Smirnov was the first to prove this rigorously for two important cases, percolation on the triangular lattice and the planar Ising model. The proof is elegant and it is based on extremely insightful combinatorial arguments. Smirnov’s work gave the solid foundation for important methods in statistical physics like Cardy’s Formula, and provided an all-important missing step in the theory of Schramm-Loewner Evolution in the scaling limit of various processes.
