#### Department members and emeritus professors named as AMS fellows.

The Math department website notes that Professors Ruth Charney, Ira Gessel, and Kiyoshi Igusa, along with emeritus professors Edgar Brown, David Buchsbaum, Harold Levine, Richard Palais, and Gerald Schwarz, have been named to the inaugural group of Fellows of the American Mathematical Society. According to the description on the AMS website, the “Fellows of the American Mathematical Society program recognizes members who have made outstanding contributions to the creation, exposition, advancement, communication, and utilization of mathematics.” The first class was announced earlier this month. Among Brandeis alumni in this first batch of fellows, we noted Karen Uhlenbeck (PhD ’68), Jill Mesirov (PhD ’74), Ralph Cohen (PhD ’78), and Ulrike Tillmann ‘85.
