Lev Mitrofanovich Tomilchik (b. 01.04.1931, Minsk), theoretical physicist. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1989), Doctor of Physico-Mathematical Sciences (1980), Professor (1985).
Scientific research in the field of theoretical physics. Constructed a phenomenological theory of optical properties of absorbing magnetic crystals. Performed priority research on the theory of magnetic charge. He developed symmetry and dynamic aspects of the monopole theory, including the creation of an original method for taking linear singularities, the correct definition of discrete symmetry operations, the solution of a wide range of specific dynamic problems for quantum and classical systems containing magnetic sources. Developed and substantiated the program of experimental search for magnetic charge in both free and bound states. He proposed an approach to the description of astrophysical processes based on the use of conformal space-time geometry. Studied the problems of the methodology of science.
Author of more than 170 scientific papers, incl. 2 monographs.
Awarded with a medal.
