Tuesday, November 6, 2012 - 16:00
Santa Barbara, CA

Ten members of UC Santa Barbara's faculty have been named to the inaugural class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS).

According to the AMS, the distinction recognizes members of the society "who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics." There are 1,119 Fellows in the inaugural class from more than 600 institutions.

UCSB's Fellows are:
Stephen Bigelow, associate professor, braid groups.
Andrew M. Bruckner, professor emeritus, classical real analysis.
Daryl Cooper, professor, hyperbolic geometry and topology of three-manifolds.
Michael G. Crandall, professor emeritus, partial differential equations and applications.
Kenneth R. Goodearl, professor, algebra and functional analysis.
Birge Huisgen-Zimmermann, professor, representation theory of algebras.
Bill Jacob, professor and vice chair of the U.C. Systemwide Academic Senate, quadratic forms and division algebras.
Kenneth Cary Millett, professor, knot theory and its application to the natural sciences.
David R. Morrison, professor and chair of the Department of Mathematics, algebraic geometry and string theory.
Gustavo Ponce, professor, non-linear partial differential equations.

"I am very proud that 10 of our faculty in the Department of Mathematics are part of the inaugural class of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society," said Pierre Wiltzius, the Susan and Bruce Worster Dean of Science at UCSB. "Fewer than 4 percent of the members of the Society have been elected to this level, and it is a tribute to the stature of UCSB's mathematicians and their achievements in research and education."
