Nikolai Shumeiko 15.06.2016. It is with great sadness that we inform you that our dear friend and colleague professor Nikolai Shumeiko passed away on June 15-th, 2016 at the age of 73.
He was the head of the National Center for Particle and High Energy Physics, Minsk, Belarus from it foundation in 1993. He was also in charge of the cooperation of Institutes and factories of the Republic of Belarus with JINR and CERN.
In the seventies he developed a method (now known as the Bardin-Shumeiko approach) for the covariant calculation of radiative effects to observables for fundamental processes in high energy physics. He was the leader of a team involved in the development of Monte-Carlo generators for Deep inelastic scattering, Drell-Yan and other processes in high energy physics.
Nikolai Shumeiko joined CMS in 1992 and took part in the development of the CMS concept and in the preparation of the CMS Letter of Intent and Technical Proposal. He will be remembered for his important and key contribution to the development of the Forward Calorimeter of the HCal Project.
We lost an outstanding theoretical physicist an organizer of international scientific cooperation a friend and mentor.
We express our deepest sorrow and condolences to his family, colleagues and friends.
