Viktor Anatoljewitsch Matwejew ( Russian Виктор Анатольевич Матвеев ; born December 11, 1941 in Taiga, Novosibirsk Oblast ) is a Russian physicist and university professor .


Matveev graduated from secondary school No. 28 in Vladivostok in 1959 and then studied at the physics - mathematics faculty of the Far Eastern State University (DWGU). In 1961 he emerged at the DWGU student conference with his lecture on the geometry of the electromagnetic field in a theory with conformal metrics and torsion different from zero . He then moved to Leningrad University and studied theoretical physics with Vladimir Alexandrowitsch Fock . In 1963 he placed in the Joffe Institute Lev Dawidowitsch Landaus took special exams for the theoretical minimum . In 1964 he received the physics diploma.

In 1965 Matveev became a research fellow at the United Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna in the Department of Theory of Elementary Particles . There he completed his candidate dissertation under Nikolai Nikolajewitsch Bogoljubow and Albert Tawchelidze on the sum rule in quantum chromodynamics and the symmetry properties of elementary particles, which he defended in 1967. This was followed by the doctoral dissertation on quasi- potential scattering theory in quantum field theory , which Matwejew defended in 1973. He held plenary lectures at the International Conference on High Energy Physics , known as Rochester conferences in Kiev in 1970 and Tbilisi in 1976. He was rector of the international school of young scientists in Sukhumi .

1975–1977 researched Matveev as a visiting scientist in the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia in the theory department. He was then a member of the USSR - USA Commission for Research Cooperation in the Field of Basic Properties of Matter (until 1999).

In 1978 Matveev became Scientific Vice Director of the Institute for Nuclear Research of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR (AN-SSSR, since 1991 Russian Academy of Sciences (RAN)) in Troitsk . In 1987 he became director of the institute as successor to Albert Tawchelidze.

Since 1980 Matvejew has been a professor at the Lomonossow University Moscow (MGU). In 1995 he founded the Chair of Fundamental Interactions and Cosmology at the Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology , which he has headed ever since.

Matveev's main areas of work are high energy physics , particle physics and quantum field theory . He developed relativistic quark models of elementary particles. Since 1990 he has been co-organizer of the International Seminar on High Energy Physics (“Quarks”) of the United Institute for Nuclear Research. He made important contributions to neutrino physics. He cooperated with the Baksan -Neutrino- Observatory , with the Moscow Mesonenfabrik and the Baikal neutrino telescope. He is the author of 106 publications.

In 1991 Matveev became a corresponding member of the RAN and in 1994 a full member. In 1996 he became a member of the RAN Presidium. Since 1996 he has been Chairman of the Council of collaborating with the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research scientists for the Compact Muon Solenoid at the Large Hadron Collider of CERN . In 1998 he became a member of the International Committee for Astrophysics of Particles and Nuclei and Gravitation of the International Union for Pure and Applied Physics .

In 2012 Matveev became director of the United Institute for Nuclear Research in Dubna. In 2014 Leonid Vladimirovich Kravchuk took over the management of the RAN Institute for Nuclear Research in Troitsk, while Matveev remained the main employee of the theory department.
