Vladimir Paar

Vladimir Paar (born 1942) is a Croatian physicist and university professor.

Paar was born in Zagreb.[1] He graduated from the Faculty of Science, University of Zagreb, where he is currently a professor. He is a full member of the Croatian Academy of Sciences and Arts since 1992.[1]

His scientific interests include theoretical nuclear physics, chaos theory in physics and technology, computer modeling in clinical medicine, energetics, and history of physics.[2] He extended cluster-vibration model of Alaga. From this model he derived a parabolic rule for the energies of the states in odd-odd nuclei.[3][4] To the general public he is known as a popularizer of science, being the author of two books, hundreds of newspaper articles and several television series in the field of popular science.[5]

Paar is skeptical about theory of evolution[6] and global warming and advocate of new ice age hypothesis.[7] He believes that the evidence against anthropogenic global warming is being deliberately suppressed.[7]
