Support the Lars Onsager Prize Endowment

Advance outstanding research in theoretical statistical physics, including the quantum fluids.

Your gift supports research in theoretical statistical physics, including the quantum fluids

The Lars Onsager Prize recognizes outstanding research in theoretical statistical physics, including the quantum fluids.

Your generous support will allow us to endow the Lars Onsager Prize of $10,000, as well as a certificate citing the contribution made by the recipient. This prize will encourage and support research in theoretical statistical physics, including in quantum fluids. This prize has been presented annually since 1995, and endowing it will ensure sustained support for excellence in theoretical statistical physics and quantum fluids.
