Elliott Lieb Awarded the 2022 Gauss Prize


Professor Emeritus Elliot Lieb has been awarded the 2022 Carl Friedrich Gauss Prize. Lieb is recognized for "deep mathematical contributions of exceptional breadth which have shaped the fields of quantum mechanics, statistical mechanics, computational chemistry, and quantum information theory."

The Gauss Prize honors scientists whose mathematical research has had an impact outside mathematics – either in technology, in business, or simply in people's everyday lives.

The prize is awarded jointly by the Deutsche Mathematiker-Vereinigung (German Mathematical Union) and the International Mathematical Union.
