Leonid Andreevich Pastur (Ukrainian: Леонід Андрійович Пастур, Russian: Леонид Андреевич Пастур) (born 21 August 1937) is a Ukrainian mathematical physicist and theoretical physicist, known in particular for contributions to random matrix theory, the spectral theory of random Schrödinger operators, statistical mechanics, and solid state physics (especially, the theory of disordered systems).[1] Currently, he heads the Department of Theoretical Physics at the B Verkin Institute for Low Temperature Physics and Engineering.[2]


Awards and honors[edit]

He is a member of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.[9] In 2012 he became a fellow of the American Mathematical Society.[10]
