To 100th anniversary of birthday of Professor Solomon Isaakovich Pekar

Professor Solomon Isaakovich Pekar belongs to the pleiad of outstanding physicists-theorists whose works have been made considerable contribution to the fundamentals of the modern theory of solids. Being of a great profundity and lucidity, Pekar’s works prove to be the principal in a number of scientific directions. His name is tightly bound with several the most important discoveries in the physics of solids, including theory of rectifiers and autolocalized states of electrons, which have been named by him as “polarons”, the Pekar’s waves, prediction of the zero-phonon line in spectra of crystals and many others. These achievements  are considered as classical results in physics, and up to date they serve as a source of new physical ideas.
