Two UIC researchers named American Mathematical Society fellows

The American Mathematical Society has named two University of Illinois at Chicago mathematical scientists to its latest group of scholars recognized by their peers as distinguished for their contributions to the profession.

Shmuel Friedland, UIC professor emeritus of mathematics, was selected for his contributions to the theory of matrices, tensors and their applications to other areas.

Daniel Groves, UIC professor of mathematics, was honored for his contributions to geometric group theory and low-dimensional topology.

Friedland and Groves will be celebrated with the 2019 fellows cohort at a reception during the Joint Mathematics Meetings in January 2019.
