Letter of Recommendation for  MIPT Alumnus (01/1996)
The Physics Student

Letter of Recommendation.

Name of applicant : Ivanov Ivan Ivanovich
Name of evaluator : Petrov Petr Petrovich

Ivan Ivanov has been studying at Moscow Institute of Physics and Technology for 4.5 years. I was his teacher on General Physics during 3 of these years. Reviewing our joint activity on labs and classes I can mention his high capacity for work and independence of conclusions. In scientific discussions Ivan revealed maturity along with power in defending his opinion, but he was also careful for opponent's arguments. He easily comes in contact with colleagues on any question he needs. I should note a number of his uncommon solutions on seminars on Solid State Physics. Ivan is active and impatient in study, always aimed at ultimate result, even a secondary school he completed a year earlier than the same age pupils. I believe that problems of both Theoretical and Experimental Physics are equally interesting for him.

Nowadays Ivan works on future thesis at Institute of High Energy Physics. The main direction of his researches is the computer simulation of physics beyond the standard model. In particular he investigated birth of new Z'-boson in process pp-> Z'-> l+l- on future SSC collider. Some parts of results obtained are under publication. All this shows that Ivan has chosen rightly principal way of his life - physicist-researcher. As for intellectual ability he is one of the top three students in the group of 20. Ivan's overall skills are similar to those of the graduate student XX who was the group mate of Ivan and has entered Harvard University last year.

I am sure that it would be very helpful for Ivan to take course of studies at your University and to work on experiments and theoretical researches at your laboratories.
