Igor Yevgenyevich Tamm born in Vladivostok, Russia on July 8, 1895 was a Soviet physicist and mathematician. He studied at the University of Edinburgh in 1913-1914. He then switched to Moscow State University where he graduated in 1918. He developed an approximation method for many-body physics, in 1945. He worked with Andrei Dmitrievich Sakharov to create a tomohak system based on a toroidal magnetic thermonuclear reactor, in 1958. This led to the T-3 Soviet magnetic confinement...
