Mario Novello, Brazilian cosmologist (Rio de Janeiro 24 August 1942 – From Italian ancestry Authored 189 papers and 17 books Showed that gravitation is a result of selfinteraction of gamma fields in J. Math. Physics 12:1039, 1971 Explained the origin of neutrinos masses in Lettere al Nuovo Cimento 1:252, 1971 Suggested that weak forces changes in account to Universe evolution state (1972) Showed that weak and electromagnetic forces are consequences of selfinteraction of gamma fields in Lettere al Nuovo Cimento 13:74, 1973 With the physicist José Martins Salim found nonsingular rays for our Universe in Physical Review D20:377, 1979 With the physicist J. M. Salim and independently of V. Melnikov & S.V. Orlov constructed the first analytical bounce cosmological model (1979) With Hans Heitzmann proposed Dynamical Eternal Universe Scenario (DEUS) in 1984 With I.A. Bediaga e Hickman, M. Gasperini & E. Predazzi presented a geometric description of hadronization in a curved spacetime in Modern Physics Letters A4:169, 1988 With N. Deruelle, I. Costa & N.F. Svaiter presented a soluble example of quantum fields in cosmological spacetimes in Class. Quantum Gravity 6:1893, 1989 With N.F. Svaiter & M.E. Guimarães established the required conditions for material bodies may propagate on time type closed curves in Modern Physics Letters A7:5, 1992 With V.A. De Lorenci, J.M. Salim & R.B. Klippert showed than nonlinear processes in standard electromagnetism may lead to electromagnetic black hole in Physical Review D64:45001, 2000 With V.D. Ivashchuk, S.A. Kononogov & V. Melnikov found nonsingular solutions in a multidimensional cosmology with a perfect fluid in Gravity and Cosmol. 12:273, 2006 Presented a construction of Diracian linear fermions in terms of Heisenbergian nonlinear spinors in Europhysics Letters 80:4100, 2007 Eponym of NovelloHeitzmann viscous universe HONOURS
