Lorenz Kramer Memorial Lectures

 

After the commemoration ceremony in 2005, an annual Lorenz Kramer Memorial Lecture is delivered by former colleagues and friends from all over the world during the Fall Seminar on Nonlinear Dynamics in Bayreuth.

The Physical Institute of the University of Bayreuth recognizes in this way the outstanding contributions of the late Professor Lorenz Kramer to the focus subject 'Nonlinear Physics' at Bayreuth. The support of the Emil-Warburg foundation, which has received particular donations for this purpose, is gratefully acknowledged.
