Professor Greg Moore has been named as the recipient of the 2014 Leonard Eisenbud Prize for Mathematics and Physics

Presented every three years by the American Mathematical Society, the prize honors a work or group of works that brings mathematics and physics closer together and that appeared within the preceding six years. The prize will be awarded on Thursday, January 16, 2014, at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Baltimore.

Greg is honored for "his group of works on the structure of four-dimensional supersymmetric theories with extended supersymmetry." The prize citation reads: "[For] his works on supersymmetric solitons in a variety of contexts---including black holes in supergravity, branes in string theory, and monopoles in gauge theory---have led to an explanation of the wall-crossing phenomena in the BPS spectrum. Moore's research has injected new physical ideas and created new constructions in the mathematical fields of cluster algebras, integrable systems, and hyperkähler geometry."
