Glenn Stevens

from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Glenn Stevens (* 1953 ) is an American mathematician who studies arithmetic algebraic geometry, number theory and automorphic forms.

Stevens studied mathematics from 1971 at the University of California, Santa Barbara with a bachelor's degree in 1974 and at the University of Göttingen (1974/75, German Academic Exchange Service) and received his doctorate from Harvard University with Barry Mazur in 1980 (On congruences satisfied by special values ​​of L-functions). In 1984 he became an assistant professor, an associate professor in 1988 and a professor at Boston University in 1993 . He is a fellow of the American Mathematical Society .

He was visiting professor at the Universities of Paris VII and XIII, the Institut Henri Poincaré , the Institute for Advanced Study (1985) and the MSRI .

With David Fried, he founded Boston University's Promys program in 1989 to promote math students and their teachers.
