Published 2016

Introductions - Robbert Dijkgraaf and Gigliola Staffilani

This Institute event celebrates the work and impact of Jean Bourgain, IBM Von Neumann Professor in the School of Mathematics and member of the Faculty since 1994. Recipient of the Fields Medal and the Shaw Prize, among numerous other awards, Bourgain is revered for the exceptional range, depth, and power of his mathematical work, which has brought about lasting change in the field. One of the most prolific and important mathematicians of our generation, Bourgain has an extraordinary ability to bring a new perspective to long-standing questions in numerous areas of mathematics, including number theory, probability theory, and statistical physics, which have been permanently shaped by his contributions.
