The 2001 Dirac-Hellman Award in Theoretical Physics has been given to
Matthias Mayr and Steven Mitchell. Mayr, who is a graduate student of
Professor Elbio Dagotto, was cited "for his work in developing a
random resistor network to elucidate the physical properties of manganites."
Mitchell received the award "for his contribution to the development
of models and computational tools to solve problems at the interface of
physics, chemistry and biology." Mitchell is a student of Professor
The Dirac-Hellman Award was endowed by Dr. Bruce Hellman in 1997 to reward
outstanding work in theoretical physics by FSU researches.
