Congratulations to Professor Li Baowen on being elected as a Fellow of the American Physical Society for his contributions to physics research and for promoting the international aspects of physics.. Professor Li is now listed as a 2013 APS Fellow, along with his citation, on the FIP website.
In Asst/Prof Meng-Chwan Tan's publication which appeared in the highest-ranking journal for theoretical high energy physics, JHEP, he furnished, using dualities in superstring theory and eleven-dimensional M-theory, a completely novel derivation of hitherto unknown correspondences between (i) omega-deformed partition functions of a certain class of 5d/6d supersymmetric quantum field theories, (ii) symmetries of quantum/elliptic-deformed generalizations of 2d meromorphic conformal field theories which themselves describe higher spin gauge theories in Anti-de Sitter three-space, and (iii) relativistic/elliptized generalizations of quantum integrable systems which themselves describe n-particle dynamics.
