Caption: Gross's 1988 Dirac Medal. US physicist David Jonathan Gross (born 1941, left) receiving his 1988 Dirac Medal from Pakistani physicist Abdus Salam (1926-1996, centre) and Italian physicist Antonino Zichichi (born 1929, right). Gross received this award for his work on fundamental forces (asymptotic freedom) and his work on string theory. Gross would later share the 2004 Nobel Prize in Physics. This presentation is at the International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), near Trieste, Italy. This Dirac Medal is awarded annually on 8 August, the birthday of Paul Dirac (1902-1984), in whose honour the award was founded in 1985. The ICTP was founded by Abdus Salam in 1964.Restrictions:
