Tom Spencer Awarded 2015 Henri Poincaré Prize

Tom Spencer, Professor in the School of Mathematics, was awarded the 2015 Henri Poincaré Prize at the International Mathematical Physics Congress in August. The award recognizes Spencer’s “seminal contributions to the theory of phase transitions, the theory of disordered systems, and constructive quantum field theory, including his proofs of the existences of broken symmetry phases and Anderson localization, and his use of novel supersymmetry methods.” Past recipients of the prize include Freeman Dyson, Professor Emeritus in the School of Natural Sciences, and Edward Witten, Charles Simonyi Professor, in the School of Natural Sciences.
