James Stirling

We were shocked to receive the terrible news of the passing of Professor James Stirling. The physics community suffered the great loss of an outstanding scientist, and we, in particular, that of a longtime great friend and supporter.

  We were shocked to receive the terrible news of the passing of Professor James Stirling. The physics community suffered the great loss of an outstanding scientist, and we, in particular, that of a longtime great friend and supporter. Professor Stirling was one of the star physicists of the Institute for Particle Physics Phenomenology in Durham and its inaugural director as well as the Jacksonian Professor of Natural Philosophy and Head of the Cavendish Laboratory at the University of Cambridge. He served as the first Provost of the Imperial College in London from 2013-2018. He made crucial contributions in high energy phenomenology, especially in hadronic physics and perturbative QCD, and some of his works are among the most cited of all times in the physical sciences. The Corfu Summer Institute and the European Institute for Sciences and their Applications would like to express their gratitude for Professor's Stirling strong support during all these years, and especially at their first steps in 2003. Our thoughts are with his family and close friends to whom we would like to express our deepest condolences.
