Prof. em. Dr. Kurt Binder (+)

With great sadness we announce the demise of Prof. Dr. Kurt Binder, who has founded this research group and has been the heart and core of the group for many years. He has worked at Johannes Gutenberg University since 1983, he has remained active after his retirement in 2012, even throughout the Corona lockdown, almost up to the end. He was a brilliant and most inspiring scientist and has had an enormous impact on computational statistical physics. With all his achievements, he remained modest and profoundly humane. We miss him.

He passed away on September 27, 2022.
