Description
This prize was established in 2006 in memory of the mathematical physicist, Leonard Eisenbud (1913-2004), by his son and daughter-in-law, David and Monika Eisenbud. Leonard Eisenbud (pictured) was a student of Eugene Wigner. He was particularly known for the book, Nuclear Structure (1958), which he co-authored with Wigner. A friend of Paul Erdos, he once threatened to write a dictionary of English to Erdos and Erdos to English. He was one of the founders of the Physics Department at SUNY Stony Brook, where he taught from 1957 until his retirement in 1983. In later years he became interested in the foundations of quantum mechanics and in the interaction of physics with culture and politics, teaching courses on the anti-science movement. His son, David, was President of the American Mathematical Society 2003-2004.
