Former Member Receives 2017 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics

Quantum physicist Carl M. Bender, Member (1969–70) in the School of Natural Sciences, has been awarded the 2017 Dannie Heineman Prize for Mathematical Physics, one of the highest distinctions available to scientific investigators in that field. In recognizing Bender, the American Institute of Physics and the American Physical Society cited him “for developing the theory of PT symmetry in quantum systems and sustained seminal contributions that have generated profound and creative new mathematics, impacted broad areas of experimental physics, and inspired generations of mathematical physicists.”
