as well as astronomy and ecology. His most weighty works concern light
wave refraction, gravitation and matter radiation state. He became a
member of German
Leopoldina Academy in Halle.
Oskar Fabian was Dean of Philosophical Faculty of Lviv University.


(18721917) Works on the kinetics theory, fluctuations,
similarity teqnique in aerodynamics as well as theoretical and
experimental works on orogeny processes. He was awarded the following
degrees: PhD degree of Vienna University, Professor of experimental
physics of Krakow University, Professor of theoretical physics of Lviv
University, Doctor of Law of Glasgow University. He was giving lectures on
physics and mathematics in Lviv University. In 1911 Smoluchowski became
the Rector of Lviv University. He obtained the Haitinger's prize for
theoretical investigation of brownian motion.


(18761948) Famous works on the electronic theory of metals and
on the thermal
capacity of fluids. Konstantanty Zakrzewski was awarded the Professor
degree in theoretical physics of Lviv University. He was giving lectures
on
theoretical physics, thermodynamics, electronic theory, electricity and
magnetism as well as held seminars.


(18831958) He was teaching theoretical and experimental physics
in Lviv University
and was giving lectures on thermodynamics, hydrodynamics, mechanics,
electricity and magnetism, electronic theory, theoretical optics. In
1919 Loria was awarded degree of Professor of Lviv University. He is the
authour of the famous works concerning the relativity, gravitation and
matter.


(18981979) He was giving lectures on hydrodynamics, electronic
theory, relativity,
quantum mechanics, theoretical optics as well as helds seminars on
theoretical physics. Along with L. Infeld he is the author of the
work
concerning electronic cloud influence on the de Broglie wave
structure (1931). Szczepan Szcheniowski is the author of papers on
radiation and matter, quantum mechanics and atomic physics.


(18891974) Investigations in the field of quantum theory of
radiation, theory of difraction, atomic and nuclear physics.
He developed systematic theory of multipole radiation,
determined the selection rules for quadrupole radiation.


(19051958)
Works on the theory of magnetic dipole and quadrupole
radiation of atoms, theory of atomic spectra.
Group of works on the theoretical spectroscopy. 

(born 1925) He gave lectures on quantum mechanics,
thermodynamics, statistics physics and electronic theory of metals in Lviv
University. I. Yukhnovskii developed the displacements and
collective variables method for investigation the quantum systems. In
1965 he defended doctoral thesis concerning the statistical theory of
equilibrium systems of charged particles.
In 1966 I.Yukhnovskii was awarded degree of "Doctor of
Science" and in 1967 — Professor degree of theoretical physics.
In 1972 he became Corresponding Member of Academy of Science of
Ukraine on physics. In 1990 academician I.Yukhnovskii became
director of Institute of Condensed
Matter Physics (ICMP).
