Lev Nikolaevich Lipatov (Russian: Лев Никола́евич Липа́тов; 2 May 1940, Leningrad – 4 September 2017, Dubna)[1] was a Russian physicist, well known for his contributions to nuclear physics and particle physics. He has been the head of Theoretical Physics Division [2] at St. Petersburg's Nuclear Physics Institute of Russian Academy of Sciences in Gatchina and an Academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences.[1]

For the long period he worked with Vladimir Gribov, laying a basis for a field theory description of deep inelastic scattering and annihilation (Gribov-Lipatov evolution equations, later known as DGLAP, 1972). He wrote significant papers of the Pomeranchuk singularity in Quantum chromodynamics (1977) what resulted in deriving the BFKL evolution equation (Balitsky-Fadin-Kuraev-Lipatov), contributed to the study of critical phenomena (semiclassical Lipatov's approximation), the theory of tunnelling and renormalon contribution to effective couplings. He discovered the connection between high-energy scattering and the exactly solvable models (1994).
