The 2007 CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize recipient is Joel S. Feldman

The directors of the Centre de recherches mathématiques (CRM) of l’Université de Montréal – François Lalonde, the Fields Institute – Barbara Keyfitz, and the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences – Ivar Ekeland, are pleased to announce that Professor Joel S. Feldman (University of British Columbia) is the recipient of the 2007 CRM-Fields-PIMS Prize, in recognition of his exceptional achievement and work in mathematical physics.

Established in 1994, the CRM-Fields Prize recognizes exceptional research in the mathematical sciences. In 2005, PIMS became an equal partner in the prize, and the name was changed to the CRM-Fields-PIMS prize. A committee appointed by the three institutes chooses the recipient. This year’s committee consisted of: Niky Kamran (McGill) [Chair], John McKay (Concordia), Catherine Sulem (Toronto), George Elliott (Toronto), Mark Goresky (IAS) and Ed Perkins (UBC).

Professor Feldman has risen to a position of international prominence in the world of mathematical physics, with a 30-year record of sustained output of the highest caliber. He has made important contributions to quantum field theory, many-body theory, Schrödinger operator theory, and the th
