2010 Dannie Heineman Prize goes to Michael Aizenman

October 20, 2009

Michael Aizenman, editor-in-chief of the Springer journal Communications in Mathematical Physics, has been selected by the American Physical Society to receive the 2010 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics. Aizenman received the award "for his development of the random current approach to correlations which has had an impact on a wide variety of problems, especially his rigorous non-perturbative proof of the triviality of φ4 field theory."

Aizenman's research concerns the mathematical analysis of issues of physics. He is currently professor of physics and mathematics at Princeton University, USA. After getting his B.Sc. at The Hebrew University in Jerusalem, he went on to receive his Ph.D. at Belfer Graduate School of Science at Yeshiva University in New York City.

The Dannie Heineman Prize was established in 1959 by the Heineman Foundation for Research, Educational, Charitable, and Scientific Purposes, Inc., and is administered jointly by the American Physical Society and the American Institute of Physics. The prize, accompanied by $10,000 and presented annually, recognizes outstanding publications in the field of mathematical physics. The prize is named after Dannie N. Heineman (1872-1962), an engineer, business executive and philanthropic sponsor of the sciences.
