Vladimir Arnold

Vladimir Igorevich Arnold (12 June 1937 – 3 June 2010) was a Soviet and Russian mathematician. While he is best known for the Kolmogorov–Arnold–Moser theorem regarding the stability of integrable systems, he made important contributions in several areas including dynamical systems theory, catastrophe theory, topology…

Tullio Regge

Tullio Regge (July 11, 1931 – October 23, 2014) was an Italian theoretical physicist. He obtained the laurea in physics from the University of Turin in 1952 under the direction of Mario Verde and Gleb Wataghin, and a Ph.D. in physics from the University of Rochester in 1957 under the direction of Robert Marshak.

The Arnold Regge Center for Algebra, Geometry and Theoretical Physics is a research center devoted to fundamental research at the interface between mathematics and physics. The ARCenter aims to support various scientific activities of common interest to mathematicians and physicists ranging from extended visits, seminars, colloquia, workshops and lecture series aimed at faculty and advanced graduate students, together with some outreach initiatives for the general public.

In the history of science, the greatest developments in physics were always followed by important and fundamental developments in mathematics and viceversa. An outstanding incarnation of this interplay between mathematics and theoretical physics are Tullio Regge and Vladimir Arnold. Although different in their characters and personal histories, they are united by their scientific vision,  their unconventional originality and charisma in communicating science to general audiences.
