Nicolai Yuryevich Reshetikhin (Russian: Николай Юрьевич Решетихин, born October 10, 1958 in Leningrad, Soviet Union) is a mathematical physicist, currently a professor of mathematics at the University of California, Berkeley and a professor of mathematical physics at the University of Amsterdam. His research is in the fields of low-dimensional topology, representation theory, and quantum groups. His major contributions are in the theory of quantum integrable systems, in representation theory of quantum groups and in quantum topology. He and Vladimir Turaev constructed invariants of 3-manifolds which are expected to describe quantum Chern-Simons field theory introduced by Edward Witten.
He gave a plenary lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians in 2010.
