Freeman Dyson Receives Henri Poincaré Prize
Freeman Dyson, Professor Emeritus in the School of Natural Sciences, was awarded the Henri Poincaré Prize at the International Mathematical Physics Congress in August. The award recognizes Dyson's "many decisive contributions to physics and mathematical physics," including the study of quantum electrodynamics, the stability of matter, and random matrix theory. Further, the prize citation concludes, "His lifetime of achievements has been an inspiration to generations of scientists." Past recipients of the prize include Edward Witten, Charles Simonyi Professor in the School.
