The AMS Fellows program seeks to create an enlarged class of mathematicians recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the profession and to honor excellence. The inaugural class represents 1,119 international mathematicians representing more than 600 global institutions.
"We are very pleased at the honor extended to professors Bedford, Fisher, Glassey, Lyons, Sternberg and Temam, and proud of this recognition of the excellence of our faculty," said department chair Kevin Zumbrun.
Bedford is a professor emeritus with a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan whose work includes the study of dynamical systems.
Fisher has a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago and studies rigidity in geometry and dynamics, and analytic and geometric group theory.
Glassey is a professor emeritus with a Ph.D. from Brown University whose research interests are in applied mathematics, kinetic theory and numerical analysis.
Lyons holds a Ph.D. from the University of Michigan and specializes in probability theory on graphs, combinatorics, statistical mechanics, ergodic theory and harmonic analysis.
Temam, a College Professor, holds a Ph.D. from the University of Paris and specializes in nonlinear partial differential equations, Navier-Stokes equations, fluid mechanics, numerical analysis and scientific computing.
Sternberg is a professor with a Ph.D. from the Courant Institute of New York University who specializes in calculus of variations, singular perturbations and Ginzburg-Landau theory in superconductivity.
