Life and work[edit] Dobrushin received his Ph.D. at Moscow
State University under the supervision of Andrey Kolmogorov. In statistical mechanics, he introduced (simultaneously with Lanford and Ruelle) the DLR equations for the Gibbs measure. Together with Kotecký and Shlosman, he studied the formation of droplets in Ising-type models, providing mathematical justification of the Wulff construction.[4] He was a foreign member of the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, Academia Europæa
Academia Europæa
and US National Academy of Sciences. The Dobrushin prize was established in his honour.[5]
