Andrei Alexandrovich Bogush (11.07.1925, v Korelichi, Grodno region – 21.07.2009), theoretical physicist. Corresponding Member of the National Academy of Sciences of Belarus (1994), Doctor of Physico-Mathematical Sciences (1975), Professor (1983).
Research in theoretical physics and high energy physics. Developed effective group-theoretic (general methods of finite transformations in the theory of continuous groups of global and local symmetry and their representations, the theory of simple orthogonal and unitary transformations, vector parametrization of the complex Lorentz group and quantum groups) and algebraic (the method of generalized Kronecker symbols and basic elements of complete algebras square and cubic matrices) methods. On this basis, he carried out a consistent, logically closed construction of the theory of classical (unquantized) free and interacting fields, including a simple scheme for describing the processes of electroweak interaction and an effective method of direct calculation of the scattering amplitudes; carried out the calculation and study of many specific reactions taking into account the polarization and the possible internal structure of interacting particles. Many important physical results in the field of elementary particle physics were obtained in the process of participation in the implementation of international experimental programs in high-energy physics at accelerators in the cities of Dubna, Serpukhov and Geneva.
Author of more than 250 scientific papers, incl. 3 monographs.
State Prize of the BSSR in 1988 for the series of works "Classical field theory of elementary particles".
Awarded with a medal.
