SEENET-MTP mourns the passing of George Lazarides

It is with great sadness that we have learned about the passing of George Lazarides, professor at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki.

George was a graduate student of Abdus Salam at Imperial College, a Fellow at CERN, and had a postdoc at Rockefeller University.

He is remembered for his seminal results in topological defects, grand unification, supersymmetry, and inflationary models.

George Lazarides was an outstanding physicist, a remarkable person, and an intellectual.  He was among the founders of our Network, one of its first members, and promoters.

We miss George Lazarides and will keep memory on him.
