# Professors Kassabov and Strogatz named 2016 AMS Fellows

Professors Martin Kassabov and Steven Strogatz have been named 2016 Fellows of the American Mathematical Society (AMS).

Kassabov was invited to join this year’s class of AMS Fellows for contributions to the theory of discrete groups and their growth and expansion properties. Strogatz, for contributions to nonlinear dynamics and complex systems, and for the promotion of mathematics in the public sphere.

The Department of Mathematics would like to congratulate them both on this honor.

Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, the 30,000-member AMS fulfills its mission through programs and services that promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and everyday life.
