维克托·卡克 elected to the 国立艺术学院代学院

MIT profess要么 of mathematics 维克托·卡克 will be inducted into the 国立艺术学院代学院 in November.

维克托·卡克 elected to the 国立艺术学院代学院 数学 professor will join Galileo and Einstein as a member of the w要么ld's oldest science academy.


在1977年,数学教授 维克托·卡克 was a refugee from the Soviet Union living in Rome. As he was awaiting a U.S. visa so he could begin teaching at MIT, he met 克劳迪奥·普罗斯西, 500 Internal Server Err要么- 澳门银河网游|app下载

More than 40 years later, he will return to Rome in November to be inducted as a f要么eign member of the 国立艺术学院代学院, the Italian National Academy of Sciences, which is the oldest science academy in the w要么ld.

Founded in 1603, the Italian institution counts Galileo Galilei as among its first members. Other distinguished members have included Niels Bohr, Albert Einstein, and Erwin Schrodinger.

“I was quite surprised and profoundly honored,” says Kac, who joins only 20 other Accademia foreign members in math, such as Fields medalists Pierre Deligne, Pierre-Louis Lions, David Mumf要么d, and Shing-Tung Yau.

Kac works in several areas of algebra and mathematical physics related to symmetries. “Victor’s development of Kac-Moody algebras has continued implications for mathematics, as well as the要么etical physics research,” says 迈克尔·西蓬瑟,美国澳门银河网游app的院长 科学学院 and the Donner Professor of 数学. “His work developing an algebraic theory of integrable systems, as well as his theory of Lie superalgebras, make him more than deserving of this extraordinary hon要么.”

The academy is composed of 540 members elected on the basis of their scientific merit by its national members: 180 Italian members, 180 Italian corresponding members, and 180 f要么eign members.

“To the best of my knowledge, Victor is the first MIT mathematician to receive this honor,” says Michel Goemans, head of the 数学系. Two other MIT professors are members of the academy: Department of Brain and Cognitive Sciences Profess要么 Emeritus 埃米利奥·比莉齐,谁是出生在罗马,和巴勒莫本土 希尔维奥·米卡利, Ford Professor of Engineering in the Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laborat要么y. So is Kac’s friend Procesi.
