Mário Novello

Was appointed in September 2012 Professor Emeritus of the Brazilian Center for Physics Research for his work as a scientist and trainer of scientists during the 40 years he worked as a researcher at CBPF. In 2004 received the title of Doctor Honoris Causa from the University of Lyon (France) for his studies of cosmological models without singularity. In 2006 received an award from the Brazilian Center for Physics Research for being the scientist who directed the master's and doctoral theses in the history of CBPF. Developed in 1979 the first Cosmological Model with analytical solution with bouncing, i.e., in this model, the universe has an earlier stage of collapse, in which the total volume of space decreased with time, reaching a minimum value, and then started to expand. Was named the 2008 "Cesare Lattes ICRANet Professor" by the Scientific Committee of the International Center for Relativistic Astrophysics (ICRANet), chaired by the Nobel Prize for Physics (2002) Riccardo Giacconi. In November 2010 he was honored by the international scientific community with the I Symposium Mario Novello on Bouncing Models. In August 2012 he was honored with with the 70th Anniversary Symposium Mario Novello. Created in 1976 the group of Cosmology and Gravitation in CBPF, opening in our country a sistematic study of cosmology. In 2003 created the Institute of Cosmology and Relativity Astrophysics (ICRA) that was allocated by the Ministry of Science and Technology under the institutional guard of the CBPF. Has Ph.D. in Physics - Université de Genève (1972) under the guidance of Professor JM Jauch. Holds a Masters degree in Physics at the Brazilian Center for Physics Research (1968) under the guidance of Professor José Leite Lopes. Wrote, among other books, "What is Cosmology?" by Jorge Zahar Editor, which identifies the function of cosmology as a re-foundation of physics.
