It is with a profound sadness that we learned yesterday morning of the decease of Alexei Zamolodchikov. Aliocha spent the year 2006 with us at SPhT, and we all appreciated very much his intelligence, his kindness and his warmth. We were all very happy that he was going to rejoin permanently our lab in the fall of 2008, after his return from Moscow.
Aliocha was an immense physicist and the whole community of theoretical physics will miss him deeply.
We present our deepest condolences to his family and friends.
