# IST Austria Professor Robert Seiringer named Fellow of the American Mathematical Society

## Austrian Professor honored for his achievements and contributions to Mathematics

**The American Mathematical Society (AMS) has named IST Austria professor and mathematical physicist Robert Seiringer as Fellow for his contributions to mathematical physics and quantum many-body systems. Seiringer’s work focuses on new mathematical tools that are used to analyze exotic quantum phenomena.**

IST Austria professor and mathematical physicist Robert Seiringer has been named Fellow of the American Mathematics Society (AMS) for his “contributions to mathematical physics and analysis in many-body quantum physics, and for service to the mathematical community”. Established in 1888, the American Mathematical Society (AMS) is an association of professional mathematicians with the core mission of furthering mathematical research and education through publications, meetings, advocacy and outreach. Fellows of the AMS are professional mathematicians who have made significant contributions to the “creation, exposition, advancement, communication and utilization of mathematics”.

Since 2013, Seiringer has lead a research group at IST Austria investigating new mathematical tools for the rigorous analysis of many-particle systems in quantum mechanics, with a special focus on exotic phenomena in quantum gases, such as Bose-Einstein condensation and superfluidity.

Seiringer studied at the University of Vienna, Austria, completing his PhD in 2000. He worked as a postdoc and Assistant Professor at Princeton University, USA, until 2010. Afterwards, he was appointed as an Associate Professor at McGill University, Canada. Seiringer is a member of the Austrian Academy of Sciences and has received several prestigious international prizes and grants for his fundamental work in Mathematical Physics. He is the elected President of the International Association of Mathematical Physics (IAMP) and works as an editor of several international science journals.

“It is a great honor to be named Fellow of the American Mathematical Society, especially as a foreign member of the society” says Seiringer.

**About the American Mathematical Society (AMS)**

The American Mathematical Society (AMS) is a representative body of leading Mathematicians with the core mission of furthering mathematical research, education and awareness through scholarships, publications, meetings, advocacy, outreach and other programs. The society, which was originally established in 1888, consists of 30,000 members and 570 institutions worldwide. The AMS, along with several other organizations, holds one of the world’s largest annual research meetings in mathematics with around 6,000 people attending annually.
