The scientific session of the Physical Sciences Division of the Russian Academy of Sciences (RAS) devoted to the centenary of the birth of Academician L A&nbp;Artsimovich was held on 18 February 2009 in the conference hall of the P N Lebedev Physical Institute, RAS. The following reports were presented at the session:

  1. Khalatnikov I M (L D Landau Institute of Theoretical Physics, RAS, Chernogolovka, Moscow region) “Nonaccidental coincidences (Lev Andreevich Artsimovich)”;
  2. Pashinin P P (A M Prokhorov Institute of General Physics, RAS, Moscow) “L A Artsimovich and inertial thermonuclear fusion”;
  3. Fortov V E (Institute of Thermophysics of Extreme States of the Joint Institute for High Temperatures, RAS, Moscow) “High-power shock waves and extreme states of plasma”;
  4. Fridman A M (Institute of Astronomy, RAS, Moscow) “Prediction and discovery of ultrastrong hydrodynamic instabilities caused by a velocity jump: theory and experiment”;
  5. Smirnov V P (Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’, Moscow) “Retracing Artsimovich’s path to the thermonuclear source of energy”.
Presented below are summaries of talk 1 and of the introductory part of talk 4 [the main sections of talk 4 coincide with the review, published earlier, by A M Fridman (Usp. Fiz. Nauk 178 225 (2008) [Phys. Usp. 51 213 (2008)])]. Since most of the material in talk 3 can be found in V E Fortov’s reviews “High-power shock waves and extreme states of matter’’ (Usp. Fiz. Nauk 177 347 (2007) [Phys. Usp. 50 333 (2007)]) and “Extreme states of matter on Earth and in space” (Usp. Fiz. Nauk 179 653 (2009) [Phys. Usp. 52 615 (2009)]), the reader is offered the article by V E Fortov and A A Makarov, “Avenues for the innovative development of energetics in the world and in Russia”, which outlines the prospects and pressing problems facing the atomic-energy industry and to which L A Artsimovich devoted a large part of his life.

On 18 March 2009, a joint session of the Learned Council of the Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’ (RNTs KI in Russ. abbr.), the Presidium of the Russian Academy of Sciences, and the Rosatom State Corporation took place at RNTsKI; the session was devoted to the 100th anniversary of the birth of Academician L A Artsimovich. The following talks were presented at the session:
  1. Velikhov E P (Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’, Moscow) “Academician L A Artsimovich — the founder of our field of science and industry”;
  2. Smirnov V P (Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’, Moscow) “Retracing Artsimovich’s path to the thermonuclear source of energy”;
  3. Boyarchuk A A (Division of General Physics and Astronomy, RAS, Moscow) “L A Artsimovich and astronomy”;
  4. Martynenko Yu V (Institute of Nuclear Fusion, Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’, Moscow) “Electromagnetic isotope separation method and its heritage”;
  5. Strelkov V S (Institute of Nuclear Fusion, Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’, Moscow) “Our teacher: Lev Andreevich Artsimovich”;
  6. Mirnov S V (Institute of Nuclear Fusion, Russian Research Centre ’Kurchatov Institute’, Moscow) “L A Artsimovich through the eyes of a former postgraduate student”.
A summary of the talk by Yu V Martynenko is published below.
