Victor Iosifovich Belinicher   (11.7.1945-10.04.2001)

This is a list of Victor's papers, organized in a reversed chronological order and/or by subject:

   VI's  last work was on the Coulomb blockade in quantum dots (never published, but is available on

    In the late 90's VI has spent a lot of efforts on developing a consistent approach to the dynamics of quantum
antiferromagnet in the paramagnetic state. paper1, paper2,paper3.

    One of the areas Victor was interested in throughout his career is the problem of developed hydrodynamic turbulence
to which he made an important contribution in '87 (Belinicher-L'vov transformation) and have continued to work on it later.
paper1, paper2.

    VI have recently worked on the problem of spin tunneling.  See also the paper by Anupam Garg etal  who dedicated
their work to the memory of Victor.

     Since the beginning of the hight-Tc era Victor has worked on the strongly-correlated models of these systems.
His earlier works (1, 2) is an attempt to what now has become the dynamical mean-field theory.
I was fortunate to be his student at this time and later a junior colleague. We wrote together 13 papers.
There are two main themes of these works:
(i) mapping of the "realistic" 3-band Hubbard onto the low-energy effective t-J-like model (1, 2, 3, 4, 5)
(ii) excitations, pairing, and superconductivity in the t-J model (1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6)
During this period, Victor also worked on the functional integration method for the t-J-V model [J. Stat. Phys. 69, 231 (92)],
and on the quartet state of the 2D Heisenberg model. (with the other students).

      In the 80's VI has invented a new spin diagrammatic technique for the non-equilibrium processes in magnetism.

      The most important and the most comprehensive set of works written by Victor in the 70's and 80's is on the
photo-galvanic effect in the systems which lack the inversion center. I've only gathered a few references here (1,2).
Victor's review article on this subject has received more than 300 citations.

  In addition to the article written in Physics Today I would like to list here other articles about Victor, which were
written due to his untimely death (JETP Letters, Sov. Phys. Uspekhi [russian version], and Nauka v Sibiri [russian only]).
They give a glance at the life of a very dedicated scientist, yet a very optimistic and open person.
